VGA Planets Wiki

This wiki is intended to serve as a repository for information about the game VGA Planets, by Tim Wisseman: a turn-based strategy game designed to be played by up to 11 players. VGA Planets (or VGAP, or Planets) was released in 1992 as a BBS "door game", and is now played over the Internet via email or via Web interface.

This wiki is largely intended to serve as a supplement for VGA Planets Nu, but should more or less apply to all VGA Planets 3 implementations.
