READY PLAYER ][ - The Great Apple II BBS Tour

The Sysops of some of the remaining Apple II BBS's are announcing „ READY PLAYER ][ - The Great Apple II BBS Tour" contest where users will solve puzzles on each BBS. It's kinda like a retro-version of Ready Player One! Once a user has discovered the password from each BBS, they'll get to claim a prize. Multiple prizes will be awarded including a CFFA-3000, an Apple IIGS, a $75 discount code from ReactiveMicro, and much more!

The contest is set to start January 1st, but now's your chance to familiarize yourself with the BBS's before the contest begins. Here are the participating BBS's:

A 80's Apple II BBS - telnet://a80sappleiibbs.ddns.net:6502
Captain's Quarters - telnet://cqbbs.ddns.net:6502
Dura-Europos - telnet://dura-bbs.net:6359

Full details of the contest and instructions will be on each BBS.

Happy hacking!

We have a winner already! JEFFRAMSEY hacked his way through all three BBS's
and got all the passwords. He picked the CFFA-3000, but there's still 9
prizes left including an Apple IIgs, so keep hacking!

Congrats to the master hacker Jeff!
