There is a VASSAL module for this game for players that cannot meet face-to-face. However, what if they want to use actual miniatures and roll real dice. Normally this would not be possible, but one of the unique aspects about using hexes is that you and a friend can play remotely. Players can play by mail (PBM), or if they prefer, play by e-mail, chat, Skype, or even phone.

Both players will need a copy of the game, but more importantly, a common hex grid coordinate system. The picture below is a simple example of a hex grid coordinate system players might find useful. Each hex has a corresponding letter and number for easy reference. For example, "My Tie-Fighter performs a turn to the right stopping in hex K10 facing L09."
