Trax Lobby

We have our own TRAX lobby for launching network games. The lobby requires that you have the TRAX 5.02 or later software installed (download now). The lobby can be launched directly from within the client, or by clicking on the link above, which will download a small file that will open the lobby - select "Open from current location" to go directly to the lobby.

Play TRAX by email. You must be registered on Richard's PMBServer to play Trax.
We provide a user interface to all current e-mail TRAX games played on Richard's PBMServer here. If you enter in your PBMServer id, your games will be highlighted, and you will be able to view the comments in your games (by default comments are not visible), and play your moves. Games can also be viewed by the TRAX software if installed.

Gold Token Games

Gold Token host TRAX among their other turn based games. Turn based games are played via web pages, but do not require you and your opponent to be connected at the same time. A little like play by e-mail, except playing on the web. With the free subscription, you can play 8x8 TRAX, and for a small membership fee, standard TRAX is available.

Boardspace have recently added TRAX to their live games site. Their lobby is based on a Java applet, so you will need to have Java installed and enabled to play there. After you log-in at Boardspace (membership at is free) it may take a couple of minutes for the lobby to load.
