Good afternoon, all,

I am a long time gamer who has struggled to find like-minded gamers as I have aged. I just had some family over this weekend and they said they wanted to have a game night and ... we only played Big Taboo and Wits and Wagers. Frustrated, that led me here to check it and see how it works in hopes I might be able to play an occasional game online or PBEM. I am not entirely sure how Vassal works as I just found it today, but I believe I have a substantial and relatively varied game collection that is simply collecting dust. I think I only played one true board game in the past year or more.

Today, I downloaded two modules (BSG and Renewers) just to check it out. I have poked around on the forums and thought I would come out from the shadows and post here.

If anyone could provide a simple overview of Vassal, that would be awesome. I appreciate your time in reading this post.

Happy February 1.

A good place to start would be the Vassal User's Guide which can be found here. This should probably answer most of your questions. ... rguide.pdf

You'll note the guide hasn't been updated for a while and still refers to Vassal 3.1 but the fundamentals are still the same.
