Given the lack of hidden information in the game, it would seem like it would play pretty easily in a PBF format.

So who wants to give it a try? I'm thinking 4P, so the first three people to show interest and we can get started!

I'm absolutely interested... but I'm going to be on vacation for two weeks in the middle of May and not sure what my net access will be like. So, if it's a reasonably fast-paced game, count me in! (Never done a PBF before; not sure how fast they usually go, but I've got net access for most of the day normally.)

I see no reason why it shouldn't be fairly fast - as long as everyone has access to the geek through the day.

If any of you guys use Vassal, you can take the moves on there and get a snapshot using the Wabash Vassal module and upload to the forum.

See here: Wabash Vassal Module available

In an ideal world, I'd rather not use Vassal as it make it a pain to play from work!

Um, ask me again tomorrow when I've given it more than thirty seconds of thought

I can't find the full rules online, but this should suffice - http://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/39103/condensed-chicago-ex...

Possibly tonight, else tomorrow. I'm just working out the best way to deal with the map.

Right now, I'm thinking that as long as everyone can keep track of the map themselves, we won't have to post a new one every time it changes, but instead I'll post a new image of the map periodically.

Does that sound workable?

Maybe this image plus MS Paint?

I was considering this one - B&W Simple Board - plus paint. Or possibly generating the map with something like ps18xx.

The limiting factor for me is things that I can update easily while at work - and since I work at a bank where information security is taken pretty seriously I'd rather a minimum of uploading anything from there.
