Mark,

I just joined Consimworld and joined a couple of groups and noticed you are in both of the groups I joined (GCACW and GMT Battles of the Revolution). Do you want to play a game using VASSAL-email? I can also play VASSAL live some evenings. I have Stonewall in the Valley, Stonewall's Last Battle and Saratoga. Any of these would be good, or any games you have in the series wouold also work for me. I am getting started in gaming again after a long (20-25 years) hiatus.

Thanks,

Mike Lembke

Bonjour Mark,

Zoltan just deleted the link to download the beta version to this vassal module.

If you follow this conversation:

http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/544721/vassal-module-for-hob-coming

Zoltan will soon publish a new update for the beta or a final version to be included in the new Vassal LnL Worldchampionship Module. This one is already easy to find for the 1.51 version (NOSB included but not yet HotB).

As for games via Vassal. We have something like plus ten or eleven hours here (La Reunion is GMT +4). Not very easy but not impossible to find a moment to play together. We could try it on another game BoH or FHV for example.

Sure, I'm game - although I still don't really understand the rules.

Mark, these are some amazing, amazing games you've been playing.  Wish I could do 30+ hours a week!  All the games you list make my mouth water--got them all, just have too many games and not enough time!  Maybe when I turn 61...  :-)
