Hi,

I've played TS 3 times and throughly enjoyed it. Now looking for a few PBEM games via Vassal and ACTS. So please let me know if you're interested and OK with me still getting up to speed with process of using Vassal / ACTS for PBEM.

Also purchasing Labyrinth soon as well (about to place order with local gaming store), so will be keen for PBEM games of that as well.

I can generally turn around 1 turn per day I should think, more over weekends.

Please msg me.

Cheers

As an alternative to Vassal, and which can be used in coordination with ACTS, have you checked out the Twilight Struggle Game Engine?

I have never played Twilight Struggle but would like to try it out to see if it is a game I would like to buy.

Is the Twilight Struggle game engine usable with an iPad?

The TS Game Engine requires Excel 2003 or greater and makes extensive use of VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) as part of the Office Suite for Microsoft Windows. I'm pretty sure it will not work on an iPad due to these requirements. Sorry!

I've played TS about three times now and I'd be happy to give you a game.

I'm a big fan of the game engine; it has to be the greatest spreadsheet around.

I'm glad to hear you are enjoying it Andrew. Also, if you are interested, please feel free to check out my 1960: Making of the President Game Engine found here:

I've just recently updated it. I'm also in the process of creating a spreadsheet to play Campaign Manager 2008. This will complete the (Jason) Matthews Trilogy!
