www.gamecabinet.com is down. I hope this is not permanent. There is a lot in there. Imagine if the Geek died.

Leisure games site is also down at present, a disturbing trend to say the least.

Wow, that is tragic. It was a really terrific site. It hasn't been updated for ~4(?) years though, so I guess it's not too surprising that it's lapsed.

You should be able to find it in the Wayback Machine, though:

Let's hope it's a glitch
It will be a shame if it has gone down - always worth a visit, especially for the old "Sumo" stuff.

The domain is registered until 12-Nov-2010, so I guess KenT is going to keep it going (thanks, Ken).

I remember surfing the Cabinet and finding all these cool games, and thinking, "wow. There's more to games than chess variants!"

HEY! DUBLOONS!

Uh, anyways, the Cabinet was a valuable resource for me. Sometimes I wish it would get updated, but it's still a good historical resource for older games that have become classics, or at least legendary (B5 ccg, MEccg, etc).
