Could you explain a bit more what your goal is? If you're trying to
design and validate AI for a board game, then VASSAL 3 is not really
what you want---you're going to find it hard to get access to the game
data in a way convenient for doing AI. If this is your goal, then what
you really should be doing is implementing the game rules yourself so
that you can have your AI play large numbers of games against itself.

If, however, your goal is UI-oriented, then you might find the current
verison of VASSAL just fine for what you want to do.
