Guess that means I'd best be subscribing to the BGG forum then. Will be rounding up 4 testers initially to work out any initial kinks, and then open it up shortly afterwards. Most likely right after the holidays at this point

Would be happy to do some play testing whenever the time comes. Already on the P500.

Thanks! We're currently busy catching up on edits to supply up to date playtest rules with Vassal. I will be at Niagara Boardgame Convention next week (Jan. 19th) with the upgraded physical demo. These changes will then be integrated in the presently up and running Vassal module meaning we're looking at playtests starting in late Jan.-early Feb.

Yes, thank you for offering!

We're in the very last stages of Vassal corrections: I'm rendering all the corrected counters tomorrow, then a last pass at the rules manual to make sure it is "understandable".

We will be one, maybe 2 weeks late (mid-February). Almost there!

Cheers

Marc

Is playtesting only on Vassal? OR would you make a Print n' Play available? I can visualize a game better when I'm playing with a physical copy.

(Either way I'd like to help out.)

Thanks Gordon! A print and play is definitely doable. I had one of a previous version. Could be updated.

I'll be in touch :-)

Hi Vincent and thanks!
(I answered in Consimworld as well) Best is to contact Barry Setser, B&T's developer. he's coordinating playtests. I sent him your name and email.

Cheers

To those who patiently wait for the Vassal module:
I have stopped advertising a Vassal release date because each time the Vassal is about to be finished, I'm back from a convention with game improvements that are too good to ignore :-)

This has been going on since January and I am very thankful of B&T's developer Barry Setser's dedication in perpetually modifying the Vassal module.

The latest proto of B&T will be at WBC from July 27th to 30th.

Best

Marc

Yes, the Vassal module is again near completion. Should be able to finish things this week barring real life hiccups and interruptions. Got real close last night, but finally had to pull the plug at 11pm.
