This game was played solely as a Play-by-Mail (PBM) game, where participants took turns by postal mail and, later, received their turn results. Some PBM games had no published components; others offered a published player's manual or introductory setting guide, etc. Salient details may be noted here in the description - especially for games with no published component.
Wizards and Warriors is the most realistic and playable play-by-mail game on the market.
"Sure it is. What makes it so great?"

The world is over-flowing with magic, dragons, demons, giants, elementals, raiders, pirates, gnomes, undead, strong but killable gods, and over one thousand other creature or character types.
