Format: PBEM (Play by E-mail), live, or both. Obviously the game is not really suited to live play, but always happy to play a bit and just shoot the shit. PBEM is probably best however.

Teach. Yep.

Expertise: Still fairly new but have played the game for about 3 weeks straight now and am fairly comfortable with the rules. Rubbish in regards to tactics though!

This game is always fun to play no whatever which side or scenario.

Format: Vassal PBEM with or without ACTS, your choice.

Teach: Why Yes, I can also point you to the excellent John Steidl videos.

Expertise: Veteran of several games but I can adjust my level of play for novices and give tips and pointers for good play.

Availability: I'm usually good to play one move a day, whether on offense or reaction.


I'm good now for opponents! Thanks for looking.

Here's another one.

Format: Vassal with Skype

Teach: Probably not

Expertise: I played some of the shorter scenarios a year or so ago. I have never played the campaign. I have read the latest (May 2017) version of the rules.

Availability: I'm only available during the second half of the month. Most weeknights after 7 PM Pacific. Some Weekends.

I really want to play the campaign and am looking for an opponent that also wants to. I am willing to start by playing a shorter scenario as a rules refresher. I am also willing to play this as a hybrid game, interspersing live sessions with Pbem.

Format: Vassal PBEM or Live/Skype depending on how things work

Teach: Certainly, the game is easy enough to teach via Vassal and scenarios are short!

Expertise: Have played five or six scenarios so far. Know the rules, don't know how to be a good player though...whistle

I am open to any scenario from any of the two titles and supplements!
In case of PBEM I am normally capable of doing one or two files a day!
