    How many people here play on VASSAL?

    Just wondering how active the community is.

    Well I play PB with a guy in London. We do about a turn a week. He has a young family so the you go I go aspect of PB works well for him. It's a great game and I enjoy it now more than 30 years ago for it's simple rules but intricate nuances of the game.

    Probably not the response you were looking for, but I play ASL using VASL/VASSAL, though not usually online. (I usually play solitaire.)

    VASL makes it easier to get in some game play at work and/or is better for a quick turn or two here or there as I don't have to leave map/pieces lying around where I worry about them being disturbed

    Save games make it easy to take said games to/from work as well. I've also got a lot of ASL I haven't punched yet, this allows me to play with the bits I still have in the box, and with maps/overlays I don't have.

    I play PB/PL now and then using VASSAL PBEM. Over a year ago i was playing it regularly then ASL took over.

    I have several ongoing PL PBEM on VASSAL at all times, it just seems like PL and VASSAL were made for each other. Beats being a kid in the early 80s with no one to play. Now, I can play any time I want! I also play several other games via VASSAL too.

    I play PB on Vassal by email. Get in a turn a night on average. I'm using my own module I made based on the graphics from the Imaginative Strategist page. http://www.imaginative-strategist.layfigures.com/
    I've played many wargames using Vassal email. Lot's of fun and you can take your time making your moves. If you haven't tried Vassal you should at least take a look at it. Beats the pants off Cyberboard and ADC.

    I play ASL face to face on a weekly basis so there's no need to use VASL/Vassal for that. That is unless my local opponent gets too cocky. Yah reading this Ralph?
