Fellow GCL Gelato scoops, here is the forum! A couple of useful links.

Here are the RULES.

Here is the errata and FAQ page: Errata Page-Please Comment as you find issues.

And HERE is the page with the vassal module. Suggest you download 2.01, the most recent.

Any preference on whether to send files via email, or via dropbox? I'm agnostic.

Edit: for reference, here is the line-up:

Teams:
Stig: Black
Jacob: Blue
Charlie: Green
Wendell: Pink
Dan: Purple
Roger: Red
Ron: Yellow


AND for reference, here is a list of what color different types of wear markers are. It can be important, for events, to have the right color as well as size of wear markers.

Temporary Wear markers (small)


Body wear gray (looks purple)
Fuel wear green
Tire wear black
Suspension wear blue


Permanent Wear markers (large)

Body wear red
Engine wear orange
Transmission wear purple
Suspension wear yellow

I already set up a dropbox folder which Stig and Jacob joined. But I'm ok with email too. meeple

As much as I'd like to play, I should probably bow out. I leave this Saturday and won't be back for a while. I don't think I'm going to bring my computer. I don't want to hold you guys up.

It should be logged so everybody can see what happens. Next person begins his/her logfile at the end point of the previous one.

So it will be handled just like in our Cuba Libre games, right?
And I wouldn't mind waiting for Dan.

I absolutely wouldn't mind either. I also wouldn't mind signing up for another one after this one again. I plan on buying this in my next purchase anyway, just waiting to round out an order

Well, does anything prevent us from starting the race?
And - as Wendell is our experienced and seasoned team manager here - I'd ask him to do the VASSAL setup.

Yes - we need to collect email addresses in order to start a dropbox folder. I guess I can do that, if you'll geekmail me your email addresses.

I already do that - I asked for your addresses in our weekly thread.
So, anyone that does not already has access to my dropbox PBEM share, please send me a Geekmail with your Dropbox eMail!

emailed Ron. Can anybody else add files to Ron's dropbox folder? Or is it just me who can't?

Maybe so - though I am able to add files to dropbox for other games currently underway. Ron?

Good morning ...

no idea what went wrong ... I checked but it seems that some of you aren't members. I sent the invitations again to Jacob, Wendell, Charlie & Dan. I still miss Roger's email. All others are shown as members in my dropbox.

BTW, the folder is open for all members to invite others. So if it does not work, I would ask Stig to try it again.

Sorry for the trouble.

PS: there is one difference: I opened the folder for Stig at home, while I invited you others from my cell (as I can't access dropbox from my company computer) - could that cause troubles?
