Having wetted my toes a bit over the last couple of weeks it feels like time to finally take the plunge, playing over Vassal. I'm not new to gaming but I am new to FITL, and I'm worryingly new to Vassal. So I'm really hoping for some guidance getting this started. I can play any side, over email/dropbox or head-to-head using Skype if we can get the time difference sorted (as for me, Japan Standard Time, +9). I will probably be able to do a turn a day but I am quite flexible. Anyone feel like taking me on? Cheers! /H

Happy to join you for a game via email/dropbox (don't think I can do it via Skype). About a turn/file a day is my pace as well. I've used Vassal a good bit so happy to help you there if needed (but it's really easy).

This game is hot so hopefully we'll get a foursome pretty quickly. I'm open to playing any side or scenario.

Hi there Ground Pounder! Sounds great. Vassal should hopefully not be too complicated getting into. As stated earlier I'm open for any side any scenario. But we just hang on a while to see if any one else joins us./H

I'm up for another PBEM with Vassal and DropBox. No particular preference on which faction, beyond other than NVA, which I've been playing a lot.

I will take up the 4th side, provided no other newer players want it.

Hi Jeff and Fowler. I'm guessing that I am the least experienced player here (?), so maybe I should not take any of the more leading roles such as the US or NVA? That leaves ARVN or VC and I'm thinking VC, basically just because it has a smaller force pool (may not actually be 'easier' to play). But really, it's all up for grabs and I can play either faction. It's getting to be evening over here, so I may not be able to answer mails until morning. I've got a ton of questions about Vassal since not having played the game that way, but actually, I don't know quite where to start!

Edit: Since everyone's comfy with email/dropbox that it is.

/H

I'm fine with any faction setup. As for VASSAL help/questions, I am awake during your normal hours. (I live in Eastern Standard Time (GMT -5), but I work at night, so my hours fit right in with yours.) If you would like, we can arrange a live game between just you and me during that time, so I can help you to learn VASSAL and whatnot.

Also, I don't care much for Dropbox, but I'll use it if I have to. (I'm more of an e-mail attachment kind of guy.)

Aww I just missed it. You guys move fast. I just started on Vassal a few days ago with some local friends. Don't worry, it really is easy. Save me a seat for the next one.

Hey Fowler, that sounds great! I don't want to hold things up, but if I can get a quick walk through it would be great! /H

Phil's volunteere to set up the game if we all just give him the particulars (e-mails, which faction to play, and so on and so forth). Once that is taken care of we're good to go. /H
