Experienced ganer (but still fairly new to VASSAL).
Looking for opponents for WWII operational games by any of the major publishers. I have a fairly sizeable collection
I live in UK, but am retired, so fairly flexible. Happy to have opponents from elsewhere and all levels of experience. More interested in using the games to study history than in fighting bitterly to win.
All offers received with interest.
I prefer VASSAL PBEM.
Please provide a list of WW2 games you are interested in playing.
Thanks for this. Here is the current list:
N Africa Quad
Army Group South Quad
This is the current list of things which interest me most, but I do have quite a lot of other opertional games, and I am open to other suggestions.
Would love to play a game of Ukraine 43.
send me an email if you’re interested.
Andrew…I would be interested in a Holland 44 game.
My email: email@example.com
I am in eastern time zone USA.
I am up for ukraine 43.
plz e-mail for me firstname.lastname@example.org
Would love to have a go at these games using pbem vassal if people are available:
Army Group South Quad
If anyone wants to add Bitter Woods (latest edition) to the list, I can do PBEM.
Would love to but unfamiliar with the game and don’t have the rules.
I’m in the UK, largely retired, and interested in various WW2 games (and lots of others). And have used Vassal a lot the last 10 years, as it’s so much easier than organising ftf.
So if you are still looking for opponentts then drop me a pm.
Thanks for this. Like you I am in the UK and more or less retired. I have had great rouble organising much ftf, so have turned to VASSAL. I now have some experience of it, but clearly not as much as you, and I still make mistakes. But I would be interested in another VASSAL opponent.
At present I have some games going on in Mark Simonitch’s '4x series (Salerno .43, Ukraine '43. Holland '44. These seem to work quite well on VASSAL, but I am perhaps ready to go for something a bit more ambitious.
Have you tried any of OCS, BCS or GTS on VASSAL? I haven’t, and I wonder how well they would work.
Other ideas of mine at present would be:
Last Stand (MMP)
Case Yellow (GMT)
North Africa Quad (the old SPI Classic)
France '40 (the AH original)
Anything from the Victory in the West system (Patton’s 3rd Army, Gremade. Race to Messina)
Seelowe (again the SPI classic)
But other suggestions received with interest - I have a fairly sizeable collection.
I reckon it’s better to drop me an email at email@example.com, rather than clog up the forum with choosing what to try first.
