Knightmare chess rules, anyone?

Hey all, first post here, so go easy. Does anyone have a scan or link to the official rules to Knightmare chess, by Steve Jackson games? I'm introducing the people at my new job to the game, and it would be a lot easier if I still had a copy of the ruleset. Unfortunately, while I have all of the cards, I no longer have a copy of the official rules. [more inside]

Can you remember this arcade game?

I fondly remember an arcade game from my childhood at the local junk-food kiosk, but I can not remember the name. I have tried to search Google, but I have not found anything. The game, as I remember it, was a side-scrolling shoot ‘em up. You flew planes (1 player or 2 players) and on the ground beneath you dinosaurs where actively trying to kill you with their prehistoric might. [more inside]

I'm playing a certain flash game. I'd like to be able to pause when I like, repeat levels at will, and so on (the game does not normally allow this). What's my best bet? Any cool standalone flash players that will let me do this?

title of old computer game?

Factory-themed OS 9 game?

Back in my OS 9 days, I played a game in which you controlled a factory. Raw materials would come out of a pipe somewhere, and you had to control the conveyor belts, chutes, and other machines in the factory to make a certain quota of items by the end of the day. Incorrectly made items, of course, were deducted from your score. Can anyone else remember this game, and (even better) tell me where to find it?

WWJPlay? (The "J" is for "Jack")

I have been reading Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin series, and I like it a lot. Now I want to play video games set in the era (or thereabouts). Are there any good ones that simulate the Napoleonic Wars or other European and Colonial wars of the general period? Or that have better sailing ship naval battles than the new Pirates!? I liked that a lot at first, but it's too simple and repetitive for me. I have modern computers running windows, OSX, and Linux and a PS2. [more inside]

WoWFilter: How can I chat with my gaming buddies?

My gaming friends use Ventrilo to chat while playing WoW. I've downloaded the Mac version of the Ventrilo software, but when I tried to use it I got an error message stating that I had the wrong Codec, so I was unable to hear or speak to them. Is there a piece of software my friend can download for his server that would allow my mac to play with their computer? Or something that I can download for mine?

How can I legally publish game screenshots in a book?

I'm considering writing a book about game systems in the 80's and would like to be able to include screenshots of many of the games. What do I need to do to be able to include those screenshots without being sued? Does this fall under the copyright law's "fair use"? Does the fact that they are older games make any difference? Apologies if this has been asked before - I couldn't find anything related to publishing game screenshots.

What is this children's game?

Schoolyard game identification: Everyone gathers around one spot, and one player bounces/throws a playground ball as high as they can (and shouts the name of the game?). While the ball is in the air, everyone else runs out from the center. When the person in the center catches the ball, they shout, "Stop!" and everyone has to hold their place. Then the person in the middle tries to hit someone with the ball. What game is this, and what are the rest of the rules?

Pomp, or schoolyard sand-tackling

There was a game I played in elementary school which we called "Pomp." At my school we had a sand field. Weird, I know. One guy would stand in front of everybody and yell "Pomp" and then every­body'd charge towards the other side of the sand and the 'pomp'-yelling guy would try to tackle somebody. Kind of a smearthequeer thing. [more inside]

Oh, To Gleam The Cube

My young nephew came across an ancient Rubik's Cube last fall, and the time has come to give him a hand in solving it. Obviously, Google returns a wealth of solutions. What I'm looking for, though, is a solution that teaches a logical process for solving the cube, rather than the rote memorization of algorithms. If that doesn't exist, can someone recommend a guide that has animation, or sharply executed diagrams, or at the very least is well-written and free of initialisms?
