There's a nifty online version of wiz-war, but there's a small problem... To unzip it you need a password, and the password is in the previous version of the game, and I don't think there's a place to download the old version anymore. Can someone give me a hand? I own a physical copy of the game, and being able to play it via the internet and hot-seat on my computer sounds great, but, as I said, I can't unzip the program.

Is there a way to get a previous version, or could someone geekmail me this elusive password?

The new licensee of the game now owns the computer game rights to the game so the only those that had the old version can use it.

So there's no way to access the online version, even if you own a physical copy of the game? That seems like a horrible tease, having the files and not being able to use them due to a win-zip password. There's no way for a new owner to join this illustrious club of old timers?

Hi Michael,

Sorry about that, but my contract with Tom Jolly expired and I can no longer distribute the computer game since another company now owns computer rights (they're scheduled to put out the new board game edition in the near future). I put up the password protected version because I didn't want to deprive previous users of some of the bug fixes I added, but unfortunately I can't make the game available to new users.

If something changes (like the other company granting me rights) I'll be happy to make the game available again, but I'm not holding my breath for that happening.

Where is the online file? I have a friend that's not very tech savvy, but I'm pretty sure he has the old version of the game and would appreciate an updated version if I can point him at it.

I don't know what happened. The website was still online yesterday.

It worked for me today too and I grabbed the file. Unfortunately the password doesn't work using the paper rulebook that came with my original version of the game like I thought it would I guess it's not the same as the rulebook that came with the original version of the program.

Sorry, as I mentioned above, I no longer have the rights to distribute the WizWar computer game. FFG now has the computer rights. The current version is there for anyone who has a previous version of the game and wants to update to the latest version.
