If you wish to add a game, please include this format:

Format: VASSAL, SKYPE, as well as PBEM (Play by E-mail), Live, or both

Teach? Can you teach it or are you willing to?

Expertise: How much experience do you have with this game?

If you successfully find an opponent, be sure to add your game schedule to the guild calendar, unless you are the obnoxious private type.

Format: Vassal Live/Skype

Teach: Hell No. I don’t own the game or have the rules

Expertise : Looking for someone who knows the game to take lead on this. I assume it would probably take two sessions to get through a game.

Time: Would need to be 2-3 hour sessions starting at 9:00 Eastern USA.

I've been really interested in these as a more realistic alternative to the World at War series. I'd like to try it and find out.

Format: Vassal Live/Skype

Teach: Nope.

Expertise : I'm learning. Ideally you teach, but we can try blundering through it together too.

Time: Almost any day 9:30pm+ eastern time USA

After hearing Dave's review, I really want to get a game going.

Format: VASSAL PBEM (Play by E-mail). Would be up for some Live Skype gaming to kick it off, but my live time is pretty limited.

Teach? I would be learning. Haven't played any of the ACW games of the same system.

Expertise: Zero

Format: Vassal/Dropbox/Skype

Teach: We can learn together, but I wouldn't feel comfortable teaching at this moment.

Time: If we can make live play work I'd be up for it, otherwise PBEM is just fine with me as well! I am GMT+1

Expertise: I have just bought Baptism by Fire (thanks Arthur!) and want to get a game going. Went through the rules a few times and I think I have the general game sequence down. Looking for a fellow guildie to either learn together or be crushed by a more experienced player, both are good to me.
I would prefer playing one of the smaller scenarios from Baptism by Fire first, to ease myself into the system without the overhead of a complete campaign.

Ok, there seemed to be about 5 other guildies that were interested in being part of another Here I Stand (500th Anniversary Reprint Edition) game. I will run the game if y'all express interest here.
Game is FULL

Format: PBEM using ACTS and Dropbox (You'll need to setup an ACTS account if you don't have one. Super easy)

Teach: Yes, Please read the rules.

Expertise : 5 games of Here I Stand and 25+ of Virgin Queen.

The tempo of the game is one impulse per day. Please consider that when signing up for the game.

Would love to play this enough to get a feel for both sides and what the expansion adds.

Format: Vassal Live/Skype

Teach: Nope, first time.

Expertise : First time playing. If you know how already, that'd be great. If not we can muddle through it together.

Time: 9:30 Eastern USA almost any night.

Format: looking for live VASSAL with Skype or Discord

Teach: i can absolutely teach this.

Availability: most any time starting at 10:30 CST. Sometimes earlier if wife cashes in early. That probably means mainly mountain west or pacific time players but if you are a night owl in CST/EST then great

need 3 others for full game of 4 which is best.

Teach: I’m still leaning and in one ongoing game PBEM with fellow noob. Would especially like to learn this game from a veteran live. I have most the rules down no since it isn’t that’s complicated but I think I need some help on the naval/amphibious thing and clarifying Indians going home

Availability: most any time starting at 10:30 CST. Sometimes earlier if wife cashes in early. That probably means mainly mountain west or pacific time players but if you are a night owl in CST/EST then great
