Not sure if I'm writing this in the correct place, but I'm sure you will tell me if that's the case. I've loaded VASSAL to my computer and loaded 'The Great War' module, but I just can't get going with it. I'm not sure the computer version of the game is for me so I think I'll have to say I am not able to join the mini-tournament. On the plus side, I have played the board game version 5 times now. The game is very good and you can a get a game completed in an hour and a half. At first I thought the scenarios (only played the first few from the rule book) were favoring the Germans and the German side won the first 3 games I have played. Now however, I have become a bit more experienced and the attacking British are not so bad; in fact they won our 4th and 5th games (but only just).

Seems like 6 players now (including Todd Carter from BGG).
Do we wait for more (8 would be porobably perfect for initial tournament) or do we start?

my impression was that Chris had dropped out, so it was 5, including plainscape.
there seems to be some registration problem on the TGW website (this site) which might prevent players registering.

That being said, we could go ahead with a round robin style tournament. What do you chaps think?

I still like the game and in hindsight would like to try the computer version but if you included me in the tournament, my first opponent would have to explain a few things to get me started with the VASSAL controls (how hard can it be?). But if you only want experienced VASSAL players then you need to leave me out. Hope that helps in your decision on whether to start the tournament.

Chris,
of course we will help you - and Vassal is very straightforward. So do not resign only because of the tool.

And I suggest to play a game befor tournament to familiarize with Vassal. Please drop me an email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and we can set-up some test game.

OK, lets see if any others roll up between now and the weekend, and I'll get a roster done then.

Currently 6 including Chris, and I have no problem teaching as I go. Mind you I have remember the rules correctly, an increasing challenge!

Happy to help those new to Vassal and the game as well. Expect plenty of rules checking by me for my own self when playing. I've played a total of four games to completion now, and only the last two had the majority of the game mechanics down (as far as I know ;) ). Still plenty of Combat Card situations to arise, I'm sure.
