I've recently purchased the two starter sets after being pulled into the game by watching the "Watch it Played" videos and I'd love to get some games under my belt using Dropbox and Vassal.

Anyone interested?

Instead of emailing the blog files back and forth, you share a dropbox folder and deposit the there. Saves email clogging, plus some people I know may game in a place where email is blocked and /or monitored but Dropbox may not be (which is odd, but hey!).

I've been using Dropbox for several Eclipse games with a lot of success. Make sense? If not ask questions and I will try to advise.

Try getting on Vassal with the SW module and you'll find people on and off, usually in the evening, late at night, or weekends. Here's a great tutorial on using it...

And if you haven't already, you'll need to create your decks (Vassal does not come with any pre-made faction decks) which you save to your computer and can load for any game. Or you may find someone who's already made base decks and can load them for you.

I'm in the middle of a game right now and all of our communication has been through the .vlog files or email. First time doing this though.
