This is just a public service announcement.

A lot of people think they need cameras to play Live on Vassal. What is on the screen is the game. The Skype is used only for voice communication to discuss rules interps etc. The experience is very similar to F2F. With the superiority that you do not need to see or smell your opponent!!!

Jackasses? You let a whole column get stalled and strafed on account of a couple of jackasses? What the hell's the matter with you?

Nobody wants to see your wargame face at the height of battle anyhow...

You can play full on naked and scratch your balls or pick your nose.

What's the point of playing full on naked and scratching your balls or picking your nose if there isn't someone there to see it?

Not entirely true - I turn on my camera once in a while so I can flip the bird at my opponent. angry

You can. It's not as loud as if you have the camera turned on though.

You're not playing in your underwear already?

There's no such thing as working in your home office in your underwear. It gets even better with wargaming...

I often play in someone else's underwear...and perhaps I've shared too much.

If you are sharing underwear, you are sharing too much.

It brings me closer to the random strangers who wore it in the past...and again, that might be sharing too much.

Jokes aside, I've been meaning to learn how to use Vassal for years. I've been fortunate to have a FtF wargaming group, so Vassal hasn't been a priority for me. Right now it's just one of many things on my "to do" list. Admittedly, many of the items on that list have been there for a LONG time.
