...to play Squad Leader vFtF.

Last Sunday I played my first game of ADP. Noticed VASSAL offers a module. Made me curious. How does it play PbeM?
- What timeframe for a game? At how many moves per week? Day!?
- Is it easily playable for PbeM?
etc.

Just curious. Thanks!

It is easily playable via PBEM Vassal. How many moves per week? It depends on who you are playing with.

I second Seattle Dan's comment--it is quite easy to PBEM with the Vassal mod, in fact since I have a harder time scaring up FtF games, I play it most of the time that way.

In terms of frequency, it all depends on your players. I find over the long haul you're doing very well if there are a couple moves per 24-hours, but your mileage may vary.

Thinking about it, I wouldn't mind to get another PBEM going, since my current game load is flagging. Would you like to give it a try Matthijs?

What, the 2 of us? Or with 4 (find 2 others)?

Yeah, I think I could be talked into the short scenario. No promises about 2 moves a day, though.

Lemme try to scare up another two players. Do you have a preference for a particular faction?

Normally I used DropBox for depositing files. To do so, please advise your e-mail address in a Geek Mail to me.

Sent.

I played the game once, as Taliban. So I haven't developed preferences yet. Anything will do.
See if you can find 2 others patient enough to forgive me any PbeM errors - as well as rule errors.

Max,
We're actually full up now, but I can maybe try another game later.

Do you play Fire in the Lake as well?

Jeff
