Vassal for Android? Looks like a good fit for PlayTable.

Postby EmptyFooted » June 4th, 2017, 3:06 am

I am considering a Pre-Order for an Android 5.0 system with a 24" or 32" screen designed for playing board games.

https://playtable.com/#tech

They will be offering popular board games for the system. But I'm a hex and counter war gamer and I suspect that the demand for my kind of games is not large enough for them to develop many of them. But if Vassal would run on it, this would be the best of all possible worlds :D !

My question is, Is there a reasonable chance that I could run Vassal on an Android 5.0 system within a year? I'm not looking for a guarantee just a best guess. Take a look at the system, it might provide some motivation to the developers.

Thanks!

I'm not willing to hazard a guess at present. All I can say is that my
plans haven't changed and that VASSAL 4, which includes targeting
mobile platforms such as Android, is next on my list.

Why don't you all send him $100,000, so he can take a couple years off from however he makes his living and devote the time to Vassal 4.

That would certainly be appreciated.

This kind of thing is definitely a possibility
I think you could definately get good traction on a kickstarter campaign.
100k is easily within reach with how well known Vassal is
