Opponents wanted

Postby larspeder » January 2nd, 2012, 10:34 am

Hi everybody

My name is Lars-Peder i am looking for someone interested in playing:

Guns of August,
Russian Front or
Empires in Arms

I am relatively new to VASSAL and so i have not discovered alle the features yet. I have family with three children so there is not always a lot of time so PBEM is the best for me. Occasional sessions online is also possible i live in Denmark in Europe. so it is GMT +1

I might also be interested in:

Case Yellow or Vietnam 1965-75 (i have the rules and the games but i have never played them.)

i am already engaged in playing

"War and Peace", "Advanced Squad Leader" and "A World at War".

Any replies will get a serious answer

Hi Lars,

Of those games you mention I own and would like to try Case Yellow. I´m also engaged with wife, kid and so on, so PBEM is the only way for me to play - maybe a live sesson now and then could be arranged. I live in the GMT+1 area.

I also own and have tried AWAW, so if you ever want to start a new game, just tell me.

Best Regards

Hi Lars,

I think I can try either the Russian Campaign or Vietnam by email. Please let me know if you are still open for these.

Hi Lance

I tried to send something to you yesterday but i am not sure it reached you.

I have never tried the russian campaign and would actually rather try Russian Front if that ok with you.

Otherwise Vietnam might be an idea but i have to read the rules on that one and you will have to åatient with me in the beginning.

Other games i would like to play are

War and Peace
Guns of August
Case Yellow
If you have a special favourite please let me know.

If you are stil interested please contact me on or

Hi Lars
I see you are interested in a game of Russian front, I game my older brother once played with me as a child. I am in the same situation as you are, living in the same timezone (although only a quater dane), new to Vassal, small kids running around and thirsty for some kind of intellectual challenging nostalgic experience. I would prefer to play the Russian side on advanced game rules (the updated ones) without those optional rules unbalancing and complicating things, what about you?
But first, I tried to get the Russian front mod to work (latest vassal, java and mod) and I can’t seem to be able to move minefields and factories about. Are you having the same problem?

Hi Lars, I'm GMT+10, but we might be able to settle on a time if you want to play Vietnam 1965-75. Like you I've never played it but would like to try it out.

Hello, have you found a partner to play Guns of august?
If not, I'm interested in PBEM and I've played this wargame.
