Warriors of God -- Solo Play on Vassal

I started off with a quick post to What Board...

I started off with a quick post to What Board Games Are You Playing but I'm going to spend a minute to move it here so that it can get a little more attention from people looking for it.

  For those unaware, Warriors of God is a two-player low-chit-count wargame from Multi-Man Publishing, part of their International Game Series.  It is set during the 100 Years War in England and France (1300s roughly).  Originally designed by Makoto Nakajima, it was published as a magazine game in Japan, then was picked up by MMP and plushed out into a very impressive looking standalone title.  It's Japanese heritage becomes apparent when you review its very unique turn ordering, and provides the kind of gaming that has you rubbing the back of your neck when you're even carrying out small actions like placing a new unit or deciding on one more round of attack.  It plays in about 3 hours . . .

. . . assuming you're playing in real life of course.  I'm playing on Vassal, the online engine that permits me to save games and even log each move of each piece as the game proceeds.  I generally play in 20 minute bursts two or three times a week, so games run about a month when I stick to it.  I have trouble finding opponents for wargames, but Warriors of God works exceptionally well solo since all information is fully available on the table.

I'll lead off with copies of the entries I've already made in the forums.  Initially I just did a drive-by brag that I was managing to get a game in, but MSample asked a question and I got on a roll.
