A Few Freakin' Links, Ace!
The Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games Mercenary Contracting Center
-- almost sounds like a real place (no, you won't find a job here, Sparky)! It
has a lively forum,
many player campaigns and scenarios, and a bit about the strategy of the
game. This is the top place to be for JADG, unless it goes down again! [If it
does, I'll upload some campaigns and scenarios at Jagged! instead.]
Yahoo! Groups-- Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games (formerly eGroups)
-- it's quite good. You'll find a few addtional campaigns and scenarios here,
including a World War II mission that the members are building in progress.
This is perhaps the most current thread of JADG happenings (yes, the game lives
on!)-- even the main creator of the series, Ian Currie, is a member! You don't
need to be a member in order to access their files.
Troy's Deadly Games Pages
-- He has a few unique player-made missions here and is the author of the JA:DG
money editor! Nice! (This is the correct link. The link on his main page
incorrectly points to a non-existing "index2.html" page, rather than the real
Jagged Alliance Galaxy
-- this site focuses mainly on the newer games (JA2, Unfinished Business, as
well as news about Jagged Alliance 3), but it offers a few files for Jagged
Alliance: Deadly Games
Lady Doom's Deadly Games Page
-- wow, there is a woman who actually plays this game (I had thought that only
men played this stereotypical game!) and you'll enjoy her opinions about each
of the JADG mercs, even if you don't agree with her! An oldie, but a goodie,
and it's still up as of this writing.
Where can I find Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games?
Search online auctions, or the local "Yahoo! Shopping: Computers"
of your country, or "buy Jagged Alliance Deadly Games" on your favorite search
engine, for example. It's not exactly a walk in the park, but it's hardly
when you do find it, it will almost always be less than $8-10. Searches:
Alliance", "Deadly Games" (both in quotes to match exact phrases). Some
abandonware sites might have this, but, even if you find it, you'll probably
want the full CD game, anyhow! The ripped versions don't have the merc's voices.
Their voices, annoying or not, add so much character to JA:DG.
Another tip: Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games was also a part of an excellent
collection called "The Ultimate Strategy Archives" (Interplay), bundled with a
other games (M.A.X., X-Com: UFO Defense, Civilization, Conquest of the New
World Deluxe, and more)... you can probably get the whole lot of strategy / war
around $8-12! This collection is out of print, but it pops up frequently as
new old stock or at online auctions. Search: "Deadly Games", "Ultimate
Strategy", "ultimate strategy collection", "ultimate strategy archive"...
something's gotta come up! You shall be victorious.
Another box set: Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games was also a part of the
"Ultimate Strategy Pack" (Sonoma Multimedia), bundled with
Perfect General II, Steel Panthers, and The Civil War: 1861-1864. You can find this collection for about $8-12 as well. It is also out of print, not quite as attractive as
the above set of games, and is a bit tougher to find.
