What time zone? I am running a Vassal game tomorrow night at 9pm EST for some local gamers, but am also considering an online Vassal play season/league.

Sorry, didn't really mention this... I'd like to run this as an email game. Nice short logs you get to complete in a few minutes to get a daily fix...

Chris, I'd play online if I can work it in my schedule. I'm East Coast (Florida)

I think we have enough players for a 6-player game now. I have two potential interests. Let me see if they actually do come around. In the meantime I'll collect email addresses..

Version 1.1 is available now, we should probably use this version in case there are compatibility problems between versions.

I think you have to upgrade vassal to use this version. That may be a whole different issue in itself

Not true. Both were created using VASSAL 3.2.11, as stated on the module page.

How did the actual game go apart from the sync stuff?

It was fun! We started with five players and four cars each on the Velodrome. Looking back we should have gone with the recommended three cars per player or used a bigger track, as it was very crowded and was almost entirely pack movement from start to finish.

Two of us had played once before and the other three had never played, so it took about 20 minutes to explain and setup before dropping the flag. Actual game play took about 2.5 hours, but it was moving very quick in the latter half when everyone understood the game better.

With just less than one lap to go there was a yellow caution flag and the cars lined back up for a green flag dash to the line. In the end it was very close with only four points separating first and second teams.
