Format: VASSAL live with voice chat option (Skype or other). Am free most weeknights starting at 9PM Chicago time (GMT -6 I think)

Teach?: I'm new to GTS but am willing to learn with someone else learning as well.

Expertise: None direct so far. Read rulebook a few times and played around with the early scenarios.


I've been really interested in GTS lately. I own WED. Would be open to the other games in the series to at least get some play under my belt. However, I do not own them so I don't have the exclusive rulebook for the other games.


Would like to get through the non-campaign scenarios for WED, but willing to try most anything. Given the depth of the game and my newness to the system, I am not interested in PBeM at this time. Not sure it would make much sense anyway with the Opportunity Fire rules.

Hope to hear from you!

Not looking for a vassal game right now, but I've found that there really isn't a lot of opportunity fire. I've learned very painfully that giving the other guy free shots isn't good.

Other people may play differently but I find that when I'm doing PBEM games and the other person has opportunities just assume that they'll take them and do the dice rolls for them. Otherwise you go at a snail's pace exchanging files for each little reaction. I've never done any TCS PBEM.

I'm actually quite interested in PBEM.

Though you have said not interested in PBEM, as OF's that really need the discretion of another player do not happen frequently, I think PBEM is actually better for learning the game. If you change your mind, we can start to play any time.

Thanks for the info guys. Sounds like I have more flexibility than I initially thought.

I'm still interested in playing. I'm going to drop Zhe a note and see how PBeM goes.

Bryan, let me know if you are interested in live play and perhaps we can try that down the line.
