Does anyone play PBEM using VASSAL? Or is there too much interaction to make it worthwhile? My schedule is just too chaotic to find time to hook up for real-time VASSAL atm.

When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.

Sure. It takes a while, but sometimes you can get in several exchanges per day. And it helps to use a few short cuts at a marginal compromise in game terms. For example, if your opponent fires at you and gives you option to conceal, you can reply NCHROT (no conceal/hero rest of turn) so that if he has additional fire cards to use he doesn't have to ask again.

I play like this a lot with a member here. We have played numerous Campaigns this way...it does take time, but its still fun and like stated...sometimes we can get a number of turns in...
We play on an experimental Campaign Up Front Module He made on Vassal.
has a lot of extras on it.
You could put me on a list also for possible play. Am in middle of a
"Continuation War" Finn's - Soviet's Campaign right now...but, maybe in future.

Thanks for all the responses. Greg and I have started a game and it's going smoothly and quickly. If anyone else wants to play, drop me a GM as I'm sure I can handle a couple PBEMs at once.

Same for me. I will always be willing to play if anyone is interested.
