The log files take care of "drawing the same card", at least I think... For that matter, Vassal has die rollers as well, but putting it in a more visible forum is fine with me.

I don't know how we could keep track of our AC. and now that I'm thinking about it, SO cards will have the same problem. Either everything is public or 1 or more persons will need to keep a record. I wouldn't be against the honor system, but we run the problem of multiple players drawing the same cards.


I was thinking the same about the die rolling, create a thread on bgg and do the rolling there. As for the AC and objectives we could draw them only when we are live OR just trust that we are not cheating and one player draws and then posts the log file on this forum for the next player to draw and so on.. I am currently trying to modify the vassal file to make cheating more difficult but I dont think the modifications will be done in time.

Sorry if my comment seemed ill-advised. I am currently GMing two games and just thought I'd share my experiences with you. We've been having situations in every game until now where I participated either as a player or as GM, where an impartial party was required. Of course it CAN work without a GM, but it may cause trouble. I will be following this game just out of curiosity.

Not ill advised, shaunm, just late. We have accepted the risk at this point.

I, for one, will still appreciate the outside observer. We are all pretty new to both PBF and TI3, so if we misinterpret any rules, please let us know.

He messaged me that he was having difficultly registering with vassal. I will look into it more. Hopefully the issue can be resolved soon.


I don't mind playing a three player game, if he can't get in for some reason.

Select your player based on this so we are not all together on the same side of the map

First hiccup, I am laying down the home tiles on the map and also testing out what happens when I lay down others..but they remain flipped. Any ideas on how to flip them so that everyone can see?

I also noticed that once the map tiles go down, they stay there and cannot be moved. Is there a way to move them?

Played around a bit and figured it out. After placing the tile, but before changing focus, you can right click and say flip. Not sure why they don't just go down face up...
