War of Flowers

An Oriental Card Game
version 2.0.9

© Copyright Minho Choi 1993-1995. All rights reserved.
War of Flowers is freeware. But it is not in public domain.
WoF used to be a shareware until version 2.0.8.
As I am constantly moving around Korea, US, and Taiwan,
it became very difficult to collect the shareware fee.
So I decided to make WoF a freeware
so that users can play the game without feeling guilty.
However, if you think that you must send something for me,
please send a nice postcard to the following address:
Minho Choi
MunChon WooSeong Apt. 308-1002
GyeongGiDo GoYangSi JuYeobDong 32
Korea
See the About... dialog for address written in Korean.
Send bug reports to minho@biaa.sinica.edu.tw.
