Looking again at the SLICK list, it's not actually a database of games, but links to where the rules are, or were, published.
SLICK was originally a database of tagged links. There was an interface that enabled you to say "I have three stashes, some dice, and a chessboard. What games can I play?" All the tagging was done by hand, so maintenance was labor intensive. When SLICK moved to icehousegames.com, support for the database functions went away and it became a list.
For example, five of the first six games listed on SLICK are broken links. Four of those five are not in the wiki. Three of those four, I have in this folder.
If they were not transcribed when the wiki came online, and the original author has not bothered to keep the rules available, I don't know if it's worth your time transcribing them now. -- Elliott C. "Eeyore" Evans eeyore@xxxxxxxx
