Small World Small World must be one of my favourite games but I simply cannot understand why oh why there is still no online version of it??? I contacted DOW last year (after the iPad version was released) and they said to "watch this space"... it's been months now and... Nothing

Am I hanging out in vain?

Hi,

You can "play" online using the vassal module (see: http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/Module:Small_World)

Yeah - I have been looking to play some Vassal Games - I might be able to coordinate with you some night if you are interested. (my main gaming group - which thank goodness is playing Smallworld tonight - lived about 45 miles from me.)

Anyway - we are looking to play on Vassal and see how it all works - I have never used it. But if you take a look at it and think you might be interested - I would love a PBEM or something to try out!

Oh - I have also been tossing around the idea with my gaming group about us coordinating some sort of Small World tournament - either through observed vassal games - or through Play by Forum. We have held off on anything however - as we are hoping that Days of Wonder will get it together for us to have that as the online medium.

What's the procedure for signing up for a game? I am a terrible Small World player (for one thing, I've only ever played 2p -- and always lost), but I'd be interested in trying a PBF game now that my offline gaming time has gone way down.

The procedure is basicly telling people you wanna play and hope you can get in a game. Game 26 is over in a few days. I'll probably start another one after that. Keep lookout for the new one and post in the thread that you wanna join.

Dan Samela (Mysterio) seems to start new games all the time. Geekmail him and I'm sure you'll be in his next game.

Perhaps we should start a Guild or something to make it easier for people to keep up?

Haven't you heard?

The online Small World boardgame (that doesn't exist) leads to child neglect and dog starvation.
