I have a friend who may be willing to play this PBEM using the Vassal module. It's great that there is a scan of the rules in the files section but when I print out a sample page the text is fairly blury. It is readable albeit a strain. Just wondering on the very off chance whether somebody has a better quality scan of the rules available?

Has anybody played the Vassal module and willing to comment on their experience?

I have this game (because I like others of Craig's designs) but have never played it. I hope you get in a game and provide a Session Report

I now have an excellent scan of the rules thanks to a very kind BGGer! I emailed the Vassal mod creator (Evin Mulron) to check whether there were any updates since the mod was posted in 2006. Actually I think I've tried to contact him before and the email bounced on that occasion as well. I suspect based on a Google search that he is not currently active in Vassal development.

The Vassal mod has automation features which my experience has shown with another mod by a different developer can potentially fail with the risk of having to compromise the game or restart it. I'd happily take the risk except there is a Cyberboard gamebox (by Chris Perleberg) which also appears to have had a lot of effort put into it. So now I'm wondering which is the better option.

Does anybody happen to know if Evin is still about or can comment on their experience with either the Vassal or Cyberboard version please? Or indeed does Chris Perleberg subscribe to this game forum?
