Looking for PBEM opponents

Successors 3rd is a brilliant multiplayer CDWG. I will happily PBEM with anyone who wants to play--it's easy to learn and plays fairly quickly. As a bonus, it also has very few "interrupt"-type cards, so it's a pretty smooth PBEM experience. If anyone is ever looking for an extra player for a PBEM game of Successors, drop me a line.

true. i avoided this thread initially as it said pbem, i simply don't have the patience for that but now i notice it says live stuff.

i'd be up for twilight struggle in particular.

probably best arranged by e-mail:

BST = "british summer time" = daylight savings

we switch back to GMT in a couple of weeks and suddenly it's dark at 5pm.

Oh, alright. We got the same thing in Germany that's why I thought I was 1 hour in advance now.

Looks like there is KingPut and Dog to start with for Successors. I have printed off the rules but have yet to read them - I've got Chaos in the Old World to get through before Tuesday, and a few others to also read again (sometime) and play through to prepare for an October games day - so any others feel free to jump in for a game. I'll make up the fourth if the spaces haven't been filled in a week or so.

Matt, would you still want to play TWILIGHT STRUGGLE?


Sure, love to.

I usually play on ACTS and let each player track their own board state. Are you familiar with this, or happy to try it, or would you rather swap vassal files?

(The Vassal module is out of date - the card text is 1st edition and several cards have since been changed. We could either use 1st edition rules or work round the changes)

I play BLUE VS. GRAY on ACTS. Unfortunately I can't (physically) set up TWILIGHT STRUGGLE, I don't have the space for this. Is their a tracker available? Otherwise I would just note down the influence in every country, VPs and the other on-board information.

There's an excel spreadsheet you can use to track the board position, or alternatively you can use the Cyberboard module. If we start a game on ACTS and I'm getting your mails, I can e-mail you a copy. If you want to set up a game when you're ready, my email on ACTS is matt *underscore* thrower *at* hotmail *dot* com and I could do with some US practice right now :)

I opened a game. I place my starting influence as follows: 3 in Poland and 1 each in Bulgaria, Yugoslavia and Romania.

Thread revived.

I have spare PBEM capacity now that our Here I Stand game ended. Looking for an opponent for any of the following, in descending order of interest:

Paths of Glory
Wilderness War
Warriors of God
A Most Dangerous Time
Washington's War

Obviously the holidays are approaching, but I'd like to start a game nonetheless. ACTS/Vassal strongly preferred, as I'd be hopping back and forth between Mac and PC and don't have Parallels or anything like that for our iMac.
