NEW PRICES FOR PBM GAMES

Effective for all games started after Jan 1, 2001 and for all HF and RL games after Jan 1, 2001.

Generally: we are leaving the price of turns sent in and results sent back by email the same. But postage is going up, and we haven't had a price increase in over a decade. So we are increasing slightly the cost of mailing you your turn by postal mail. We are never going to completely abandon the paper mail people, but realisticly it doesn't cost us as much to send an email as it does to print out a paper turn, stuff it in an envelope, and pay first class postage. Instead of forcing the email customers to subsidize the paper players, we are going to raise the paper rates a little. In addition, in certain games if you have been getting your turns by email, we have insisted that you also keep getting them by postal mail (at an extra charge) in case someone sent you a diplomatic message that we had to put in the envelope. For any games started after Jan 1, 2001 this is no longer required. Instead we are going to charge 50 cents per diplomatic message (to the sender) to anyone who doesn't send us the message by email. And for BP, GC, SW and WW, we are going to charge 50 cents per hundred orders for turns not sent in by email. NOTE: if you scan or fax your order sheet, and then send it to us as an attached file, that does NOT count as emailing your turn. Please do not send us any attached files.
