Tutorial: How to Play Online Board Wargames with Vassal
Sat + Sun Lunchtime (1-2pm)
In these sessions, we will take you through installing and using the free Vassal online tabletop for wargames (https://vassalengine.org/) with a focus on how to use popular modules like Advanced Squad Leader, Combat Commander, Commands and Colors, Standard Combat Series and World at War 85.
Suitable for new players or experienced players who want to learn about online play.
Note; Vassal is a java program that runs on Windows or Mac but it does not support tablet, Chromebook or phone play so you will need a PC to participate.
Board Wargames Sessions on Saturday and Sunday afternoon, 2-4pm
Join this session for wargames tutorials and matchmaking for online play. For this session, we have assembled a team of experienced players to introduce you (or you and an opponent) to some of the most popular wargames systems, for example, ASL, Combat Commander, A Victory Lost, The Russian Campaign, Men of Iron, Commands and Colors, the Standard Combat Series and World at War 85.
We will also provide a matchmaking service for experienced players who wish to play one of these games so please turn up at this time to start to play. Players who have licenses for Tabletop Simulator and prefer that can of course also use that to play wargames in this session.
