Have you ever seen those advertisements on bulletin boards or telephone poles, where someone is selling a car, and has 10 strips with phone numbers, for others to rip off, take home, and call? This is an electronic version of that for those who want to play a certain game(s) on VASSAL, Cyberboard, or live on SKYPE, but can't find an opponent.

This list is released monthly, just to keep it fresh.

Games are listed alphabetically. If a game is already there, go ahead and add it again. You probably want to click "subscribe" on your Geeklist item, so that you can see if you have any takers.

If you wish to add a game, please include this data:

Format: VASSAL, Cyberboard, SKYPE, as well as PBEM (Play by E-mail), Live, or both

Teach? Can your teach it or are you willing to?

Expertise: How much experience do you have with this game?


To save yourself from spamming, I wouldn't write my e-mail address here. Instead, find your opponent and exchange this information in Geekmails.

If you have a suggestions to improve this list, please put them in the comments section so that I can incorporate them into next month's list.

To subscribe to see the monthly updates, go here.

When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.
mbmbmbmbmb
Format: VASSAL PBEM. Don't care to use ACTS or whatever as I only play "friendly" games where trust is not an issue.

Teach? No, I am currently reading the rules for the first time.

Expertise: Looking for a fellow newbie or someone who at least won't hand my ass to me.

Could also play occasionally live by VASSAL/Skype weeknights Eastern time.

I can usually respond within 24 hours, occasionally 48. If it is just a quick response (e.g. do you want to intercept or something like that) I can probably respond during the day.

With the recent release of the "try-before-you-buy" vassal mod, I'm really really interested in getting a 4-player of this going. If someone wanted to join who could teach that would be great, but just a bunch of noobs would be fine too. We'd just all have to read the rules. If it's good I'll definitely pre-order it and probably Cuba Libre

I have to read the rules. I'm putting out any feelers to see if anyone is interested. I don't even know if it plays well PBEM. I just know it's a double-blind game, and I don't have any face-to-face options, so without a VASSAL possibility, I won't crack the rulebook.

Teach: I can't teach, but I'm prepared to co-learn it with someone (see below)

Expertise: Zero (but I'm currently 10 pages into the series rulebook - see below)

I'm learning OCS, with Burma as a starting point (currently 10 pages into the series rules).

I'm thus looking for someone to play with me via vassal. I don't mind if you're a veteran or a newbie like me.

If you're a veteran, you need to expect newbie mistakes (probably a lot of them in a game like this).

If you're a newbie (or someone with no experience in the game at all), we can work through the rules together.

mbmbmbmbmb
Format: VASSAL pbem - Referee'd game!

Teach:: No (but see below)

Experience: 20+ games

On the Gunslinger Yahoo group, we have a fairly regular referee'd Gunslinger battle happening. It's a tonne of fun and not a lot of work. The referee handles all the interactions, you just have to say what cards you want to play.

The great thing about a referee'd game is that you can actually hide from other players - if you're outside a building, the referee will hide you from view.

Player experience is all over the map. You don't have to be experienced to play (doesn't make a difference anyways most of the time!), but you should have at least read the basic rules. The rules are available online.

We want to have 7-8 people playing at once, and we have 4-5 now. Send me a PM if you're interested!

Expertise: I've had this game for years but it remains unplayed. Hopefully, with this list, I'll get a chance to change that.

Looking for either an experienced played who would be patient enough to help me learn the game or another newbie who wants to learn the game.

I'm reading the rules now and should be ready to go in a couple of days if I get any positive replies

Live or PBEM. Either works for me. My time zone is GMT -5 (CST)

If going with PBEM please be able to respond at least once a day. We can use dropbox or e-mail or whatever you like. The vassal module for this game is quite nice.

I just bought this game and am reading the rules now.

I'm looking for another player who is new to the game and/or new to VASSAL like I am. Or a patient teacher

I prefer to play live with Skype for audio over email.

I can generally play evenings after 9pm Central Time.

Any takers?
