Teach: I have loads of experience with this game. Happy to play umpire to teach a player.

Notes: A great tactical air combat game from Lee Brimmicombe-Wood. Very fast to play and perfect for PBEM. An average game takes about 20 logs. I'll be able to do a turn every 2 or 3 days.

Teach: standard game: yes. Advanced game: no.

Notes: i have a lot of solo plays under my belt, and one PBEM game. This is a bit slow over PBEM, but it works. Happy to play any scenario/side/rule set.

Preferably Andean Abyss or A Distant Plain

Format: PBEM or maybe start with some time over skype/google hangout and then move to PBEM to finish the game.

Teach: Not really. I've played Cuba Libre enough to teach COIN basics but it will be my first time with these.

Notes: With my erratic attendance of Friday nights, it's been tricky for me to schedule these face to face. I've got a pile of shorter games besides these to play and the Essen/BGG.Con deluge is nearly upon me so I figured this might be my best bet.

Formet: PBEM (email)

Teach: Sure. I'm no expert but I know how to play well enough.

Notes: I'm of the opinion you can't have too many POG games going on.

Yes I can teach.

Over Vassal preferably. It works very well as PBEM as there's only 1 action your opponent can potentially take during your turn.

There are modules for these entries in the series: Champion Hill, In their Quiet Fields II, No Better Place to Die, Perryville, and Three Battles of Manassas. I'd be happy to play any of these any time.

Format: Vassal, either PBEM or live, but I have more availability for PBEM.

Teach: I am willing to teach.

I'd also be up for any of these, any time: Grant Takes Command, Here Come the Rebels, Roads to Gettysburg, Stonewall in the Valley, Stonewall's Last Battle, or Stonewall Jackson's Way.

Format: Vassal, either PBEM or live. I have more availability for PBEM,

Teach: I am willing to teach.

This should be an easy one for live Vassal play. I can teach anyone who might be interested in this slightly easier area impulse design.

I'd be up for email play as well.

Jason, Wendell, and I have been playing (Vassal + Skype) this about every other week for the last couple months. We are starting up our 3rd game next week, taking on the monster 10-turn scenario. Jason is getting his sea-legs and is gonna take Uncle Joe in the next one. The other two games have been relatively close contests.

Teach: I could introduce you to the game, but would not be able to teach it well.

Notes: Have been playing solo to learn the rules, but still not all the way there. Looking to play first Vassal game.

Mark (Diploguy) mentioned setting up an 18xx game on rails and I just wanted to wait until one of my other games wrapped up. That time has arrived!

I'm looking into playing on rr18xx, but this would probably be rails/dropbox/email or forum. I would recommend 1830, 1889, 1856, or 1880. Also, I have another group where we do the opening auction and first few OR/SR via Google hangout and that's kind of a cool way to start.
