Pax Porfiriana - VASSAL PBEM

Inspired by our Matt Thrower's VASSAL article on Rock Paper Shotgun, Repoman suggested via facebook that we play some Pax on VASSAL.

Are there any hacendados out there with the cajones to take control of Mexico from Presidente Diaz?

We have seats for 2 more.

I'd consider it...any chance of the occasional live session to churn through a bit faster?

Not sure how it works to pass the turn so everybody can see what the others have done. If that can be explained to me, I'm totally down. Live is cool too.

Ideally, there'd be a Dropbox (or Google Drive, or whatever) shared folder where each player would place the logfile of his play. Then every single play is reviewable in step-by-step fashion. Files get named using a scheme that will sort them chronologically, and away you go.

For the F:AT Angola game we just send the file to all players and paste our in-game moves in the email.

Dropbox would work too, I'm good with whatever the consensus is.

I've never done it live before but that could work as well.

I'd be interested to do this as well; however, I don't know how easy it would be for me to do live sessions.

Okay, if you guys want to PM me you email addresses I'll get the game set up, determine turn order and assign Hacendados.

If anyone drops out, I might be interested. I'd need to read the rules, though.

These are long but pretty comprehensive videos how to play.

Hey Space Ghost, if live won't work I could also do a 2 person game?

@Not Sure, would you be able do some live sessions or did you want to join SG and I for a strictly pbem game?

Either way PM your email addresses SG and NS and I'll try to get this going.

It might be possible to do live. We're already scattered across every time zone in North America, so I could probably scrape up an evening.

I'm also fine with PBEM. Whatever works for the game. I'll catch up on rules this weekend (and Joel, I know I'm up in HIS... tonight!).

Which Vassal should I be on? I haven't updated in ages because of some long-running games.

No hurry on HIS, consider this my official "I'll be passing" notice.

Pax Porfiriana requires VASSAL 3.2.2 or newer (current release: 3.2.10).

It's going to be hard to top your last impulse...

I think I'm required to play something, I'll check and get it out tonight. Busy couple of days.
