The Ludi Seniles currently consists of 73 different types of games, and the index has become too unwieldy to maintain. The number of individual games of each type has grown so large that the index no longer links to individual challenges. Instead, the links take you to the initial challenges alone. Senex offers apologies for any inconvenience.
