We will be using vassal + dropbox.
Let me know if you have never played any game through vassal.

Please send me your email ids. I will setup the dropbox folder for sharing files.

We will use this thread for all in-game communication, regarding turns, etc.

This is my first game of Paxpo, so whoever has more experience, please guide regarding misplayed rules, etc.

Any other suggestions?

Mohit, are you going to setup the game? It's pretty easy with the new module and you just have to randomise the "seating"

Setting up the game....

Rolling for player order.

Keith (Red) - 1d20 = (5) = 5
Ken (Green) - 1d20 = (10) = 10
Rob (Blue) - 1d20 = (1) = 1
Mohit (Yellow) - 1d20 = (4) = 4

Am naming the vassal log as paxpo-001
Setup is done, have shared the dropbox folder with all of you.

Ken goes first with his 3 actions.

All the best!!!

Can I just ask if we're playing with an open or closed hand?

Is the option for a closed hand available in the Vassal module?

You simply flip the card once you've put it into your player display if you're playing with a closed hand

Hi guys. My turn is complete. Just as an FYI I am using version 1.3. Not sure it makes a difference if we are using different versions. I can easily change to a different version if needed.

Ken - I think that's the latest version and it certainly agrees with the one I'm using.

We need to agree on logfile naming. I prefer it if we include our name, that way there's a quick indication of who's next. I also prefer if the digits are leading as it avoids nasty sort issues on some OS's

...and whilst I'm on the subject my understanding was that this forum was for games which are actually being played via it (i.e. a record of the cards played were to be put here). Surely if all we're doing is saying "it's your turn next" we can simply send an email out to all players to inform them who's up next?

Sorry if I sound like I'm complaining all the time (although my wife says that I am).

I think the forum is for discussing any issues that might pop up such as rule discussions. Or questions.

As to file naming conventions it seems to help if instead of your name, you put the next player's name. For example, in my file name I should have called it something like:

Paxpo_002_Keith is up

Isn't the forum for discussing rules the "rules" forum? What I meant was the "Play by forum" forum (which we're in).

You logfile suggestion could work but if we have:

001-Ken
002-Keith
003-Mohit
004-Rob

then isn't it simple to see who's next? It's no big deal, so long as we stick the same convention.

Mohit,
You forgot to place a cube to speculate. You also get 3 coins for selling now, not 2. If you know which card you want to speculate on I can place the cube for you. I can also add the extra coin.

I think I'm going blind. You did everything correctly. I also bought, sold and speculated. Back to Ken.

Hello Ken. Have you completed your last move? I can see a logfile there but just wanted to be sure before I did my next move.

OK, to Mohit.

We still need to decide if we're playing with closed or open hands.
