Hi,

with the help of this thread I would like to gather some players to play some fun tabletop games on the VASSAL client. I figured FUMBBL would be a good place to get players, since most players know boardgames and have some free time. The games I would like to get players for are:

Dominant Species: simple but really deep game, simulating the competition between animals before the Ice Age( rulebook: http://www.gmtgames.com/domspecies/DomSpec_Rules_FINAL.pdf ). Probably best with 3+ players.

Republic of Rome: complex and hard game where the players try to lead one of the factions in Rome to domination, while trying to keep the republic alive. A whole lot of diplomacy is required. (rulebook: http://www.amarriner.com/ror/ROR-rules.pdf ). I think best with 5-6 players.

Here I Stand: game simulating the wars of the reformation. Seemingly a pretty complex game, but not as hard as RoR. I have to admit I only play a couple of turns with this one, but would like try the whole thing. Best played with 6 players. (rulebook: http://home.comcast.net/~ebeach/HISRuleBook1-0.pdf )

If you are interested please let me know here, on IRC or via private message.

Thanks,

Burn

I am somewhat interested, depending on who else might be interested and whether I'll have the free time needed.

These are the games you are referring to right?

I am interested too.
How long are your game sessions? As I have a concussion I have a limit to how long time I can play in one go at the moment Sad

Hey Ehlers,

yes, these are the ones.
I think Dominant Species can be done in about 3 hours, if everyone is comfortable with the rules. The other two take a whole lot, so should be done in 2-3 hour session, whatever the players can agree on. So these would stretch several sessions.First games would probably be slow, since the players have to get used to the rules and the interface, but with time it would get smoother.

Cheers,

Burn

Well, I am sure we can arrange the games, FUMBBL coaches seem to have a decent amount of free time:)

Will do that Shades as soon as I manage to get a good core of players. Until then I try to recruit people here.
