Hi folks,

I'm looking for a pbem opponent for PoG. I plan on playing a ftf game in the coming weeks, and wanted to play on ACTS to re familiarize myself with the rules and basic strategy. I've played PoG about 4 times, but not in the past year. Still, I'm comfortable with the rules and ACTS interface. I'd like to play the AP and would prefer a game that moves fairly quickly.

If you're interested feel free to drop me a line at justnord@gmail.com or send me geekmail.

Justin

How does ACTS work? Do you have to have your game set up and follow the turns that way unlike say, Vassal?
Sort of a solitaire?

Acts does not provide a display of the board and the pieces. You will needs some other way to display them. While having the game set up on a table near the computer is a possibility, I generally find it easier to use some other software package such as Cyberboard. Vassal also works apparently.

You can even exchange files with your oppponent, though I prefer not to.

I'm also looking for a pbem game of this...........my pc has a hard time with vassal so I'd like to try cyberboard.

I have a hard time "seeing" the board while it's on a computer screen...so I'd have to keep a game set up......plus the turn or two a day would fit well in my life at the moment.

I have played a few times ftf but I don't really a lot of experience in the mid to late game.

I also have zero experience in ACTS or cyberboard.......


drop me a geekmail if anyone is interested.



Thanks

Reading this over I'd have to say I feel like an ex-stripper with four kids trying to get married.
