Hi all,

(I posted similar question over at the COIN forum but thought maybe I should post it here too.)

I have played a little offline solo Cuba Libre on Vassal. It is really great for thinking through the game and learning strategy, bots, etc.

But how is Vassal against other humans?
How do you keep track of what other players do?
Do you just have to trust that other people follow the rules correctly?
(I'm not so much worried about cheaters, just mistakes. I know I make them!)
Do you have to read the log?

Thanks!

I've played several Cuba Libre games by email with vassal. It's GREAT.

Viewing your opponents' logs will both help you keep up with what your opponents are doing, and will help everybody to fix mistakes. I've made a few that my fellow gamers have caught, and I've caught some by them. Fortunately, in the COIN games a given log isn't very long and will only take five minutes tops to go through, most of the time.

Hi David,

I'm also new to Vassal if you'd like to try a game sometime.

BTW thanks again for your answers on the LoD forum!

No problem. LoD is a really cool game. I think it will only get better with more plays.

Yes we should play. I have been contacted by a few people looking for a Vassal LoD game. I am pretty busy for the next few days but maybe we could get a game started this weekend. Let's get in touch soon and get a game started. I am going to download the LoD module and play around with it.
