Public Internet databases
Out on the Internet there are Cardbox Servers, and some of them provide databases
that anyone is allowed to access. Here is a list of the ones we know about.
Except for the ones on our own server, these are outside our control so we
can't guarantee that all the servers and databases listed here will be accessible
when you try them.
If you haven't already got Cardbox then you'll have to install the Cardbox
Client before you can open these databases. (Download)
If you are hosting a Cardbox database that you'd like to see on this list,
please let us know.
|If you find that
clicking on a database on this page does not open it in Cardbox then there
may be a problem with the security settings on your browser. Open Cardbox
yourself and use the command File > Open > Server to open the server
and the database directly.
