Ok, thanks guys. I only have a peripheral familiarity with VASSAL & how it works, so I guess I have some studying to do...
I have only used VASSAL for a couple different games and there was certainly a learning curve involved. Also, I used it for tournaments (finding players is another issue) -- by obligating myself it provided the extra incentive to follow through. If you want someone else to suffer through with you, I volunteer to try Kremlin via Vassal -- GeekMail me. However, it is a minimum of three players so we will need to find at least one other player.
It has been a looong time since I have gotten Kremlin to the table.
