Hello Roger,

Short answer, yes. Henrik Reschreiter and I are playing a PBEM LB campaign game and reporting our progress in this forum.

Currently I am playing 5 separate PBEM games using the BCS system. This system works very well when played by email using VASSAL. The system divides each turn into easily played segments consisting of individual Formation Activations.

How do you handle retreats? Is that a break in the action?

Hello Austin,

It depends on how fast you want to move.

You can have the Activating player do the opponents retreats. We use the idea that you choose the retreat that will hurt you the most.

But if you want the opposing player to do the retreat you just stop the log file at that point and send it to your opponent to do his retreat. He returns the retreat .vlog file and you continue your activation to the end or the next return.

I guess it depends on how comfortable you are with your opponent.
