How would you broadcast the games over Gopher? Just curious.

Theoretically one could just connect to port 70, send a selector, and sit
there and slurp streaming data until the server kicked you off.

It's actually crazy enough to try one of these days.

I've streamed video data to a Sinclair Spectrum over gopher before this way, that was from a file rather than a live capture because it was processed into a suitable format for the Spectrum to display but "just read bytes forever from a binary selector" based streaming works perfectly on a LAN. I assume you'd want some buffering when traversing the WAN though :)
