OK, I've poked around this game enough to know that I'd like to try it for real. Trouble is, I can't fit a live game (in person or via VASSAL) into my schedule. So I have to PBEM. I have Cyberboard and know my way around it fairly well - though I'm a little fuzzy on how to handle things like shuffling cards and rolling dice without a referee (in my previous PBEM experience I've used ACTS for dice).

Any takers?

I'll gladly play you twilight struggle via wargameroom.com it's java and enforces rules so it's impossible to make a game playing mistake. Now a strategic mistake it can't help you there though. PM me and I can pretty much do anytime starting Monday. I've almost finished my Twilight Struggle Quick Overview and will let you know when done.

Isn't wargameroom.com meant to be played in real-time? I know the OP was asking for a PBEM game. If people are successfully using wargameroom.com to play PBEM games, I am definitely up for that, too!

I've actually used Vassal to play the game by e-mail, and it worked pretty well. In fact, their module features some cool things like keeping track of which power controls each country, or automatically implementing the effects of cards. Also, the photos in the cards have been changed so it's kind of neat as a variation the original boardgame.

ACTS has a dedicated module for Twilight Struggle which handles all the card issues. I'm currently using it in conjunction with Cyberboard which is working out very well.

If you haven't picked up a game yet ,or fancy another more than one, PM me and I will setup a game.
