You can now play EQUATE via e-mail with other EQUATE enthusiasts around the world. Nathaniel Hekman has created Equate-Master, an electronic Grand-Master, or Proctor, for EQUATE (Nathaniel is also the developer of Scrabble-Master for Scrabble players). It allows any number of players to play a distributed game of Equate via e-mail, by acting as an independent third party whose role is simply to hand out tiles as needed.

For complete information about how it works, visit the Equate-Master web site.
