I'm interested in playing this game, but only if I can do so via VASSAL.
Yes, you can do.
There is a VASSAL module.
I was curious if anyone would care to share their experiences using VASSAL to play it.
I don't have the room to set up this game and leave it up for more than a day and it appears VASSAL is the only way to go for me.
I play the game only with VASSAL. I have the place to leave it for month, but it is easier with VASSAL.
My current campaign (the whole campaign I.) was started in August 2015 an I have finished a little bit more then the half.
Mostly I play half an hour in my lunch break at work.
Also, is there a two-player option?
No. It is a pure solitair game.
If you have some questions about the VASSAL module, then ask me.
I have redesigned the original module in mid 2015.
