I added some information to the article. Don't know if anyone here previously contributed material.

The tags for needing citations etc are old but I probably haven't referenced the current article to Wiki standards.

Kudos! I remember noting there was no article in Wikipedia a couple of years ago, although PacWar is one of the longest-surviving wargames in history. I'm a bit surprised Wikipedia hasn't removed the link to the original manual -- they tend to be skittish about copyrighted material.

Now, where did I put that issue of "Computer Gaming World" with the review . . .

Thank you.

Yes, they're skittish about copyright. I'd argue since its clearly established the game itself is abandonware the manual would be also. And also that there was dicussion and a scan of the original box posted by someone who worked on the article later was accepted.

For anyone who might not know, no one owns a wikipedia article. People add things all the time. Removal of content is usually discussed first (click discussion tab) but that's not required. They have bots that reverse changes based on some sooper sekrit formula that supposedly detects vandalism.

I recall adding a LOT of information to the article, and it got "Wikipedized". Sigh.
