A game of skill or chance playable by several participants remote from each other in conjunction with a common event, such as a computer game, provides the basic format or template of the game on a floppy disk suitable for use with the remote users' personal computers. Then by connection to a mass communications one way channel, such as an FM SCA channel, variations in the game parameters and characteristics are broadcast at the same time to all of the individual remote players. These characteristics both initialize characteristics of the game and when the game is being played, provide updated playing parameters. A score can later be uploaded to the central station by, for example, telephone lines or any other convenient means.
