Vassal Singles Bar 31 Aug 2014 20:32 #186280

After the great game I had last Tuesday, I'm looking to pick up some players to take a shot at 1812 this coming Tuesday at 10pm ET. If anyone is looking for a first shot at Vassal with a few people to help get you through don't hesitate to reply.

Hey guys,

Dr. Mabuse said he might be around tonight. I can still play at 9PM CST or so, as long as I know what we're playing... otherwise I could put this off till tomorrow night and just play something with Sag.

Just post and let me know if anyone (including the good Dr) is still interested, otherwise I'll push till tomorrow.

Is there any way to find out if someone is online on Vassal?

Not unless they join either the "Main room" of a game you're playing, meaning they are connected online with that game, or your specific room.

Looks like no takers tonight. Let's play tomorrow night, Sag. Anyone else who is interested for tomorrow night, say something, otherwise Sag and I will get our wargame on.

1812 is supposed to be excellent, but I think it will be better with more players. Let me know if there's anything in particular you'd like to try.

Oh, is it multiplayer? That's cool, I just figured it was 2.

Sorry about tonight, it was our wedding anniversary, so we watched the Lego Movie with the kids. Game night is canceled tomorrow night (Tuesday) so I'll be free for something.

No worries, the whole thing I was hoping for this F:AT vassal stuff was that it would be pickup and there wouldn't be anyone pissed if someone didn't show up---myself included.

I've only recently been playing on Vassal (with my gaming rival while he's stationed in Korea) and it's been fantastic for games of Manoeuvre.

Manoeuvre is awesome. That is all.

Carry on.

(good luck getting the multiplayer thing going)

Jeff - Do you do Manoeuvre live or send files?
I need to get Vassal up and running at home and Manoeuvre was one of the first games I was thinking of getting.

I'm constantly in multiple ACTS games of TITAN, so I don't want to add to any more commitment over email. My buddy is 14 hours ahead, so we'll get in a weekend game around 10-11p my time. Kids are asleep, so I can settle in with a few cold beverages, the Richard Sharpe soundtrack, and text live trash talk back and forth as we play.

Great time. I can't compare it with any other games (except one game of Julius Caesar long ago) on VASSAL, but yeah, Manoeuvre seems to be about perfect for it....since we can't play FtF.

EDIT: There's a 17min video on youtube on how to play Manoeuvre on Vassal. I found it necessary. I wouldv'e been lost without it particularly setting up the game board and such. Once I got a few turns in though, it was a breeze.

Gary and I put Skype into the mix and I think the experience was much better for it. I can't think of a good reason to not do it for live games.

9PM CST for 1812? Can we get a third? I'll be around, I'll check back and see if I need to read the 1812 rulebook around 8CST.
