TOPIC: Fortress: Ameritrash Discord for VASSAL/video games

Fortress: Ameritrash Discord for VASSAL/video games 28 Jan 2018 14:02 #262375

Hey everyone,

In my New Years quest to actually play more games, I'm going to make an effort to actually coordinate some live games. I hope someone else is interested too. In service of that, I've set up a Discord server for us. Discord is like Slack but for text *and* voice chat. It is free. It's pretty slick and makes voice chat effortless and you can switch between text and voice channels, mute people and channels at your discretion---so you can set up a separate room if you're playing a game with someone, etc. My hope is that anyone here who wants to play board games or video games with each other will feel free to use it, my unrealistic dream would be that people use it to play whatever even if I'm not the one coordinating. But who knows, maybe I'll be the only one using it!

So all you need to do is to join the Discord server I set up,which is very easy and only requires an e-mail address to register with. I've pasted in a link to invite yourself to the server that I'll take down after a week or so. After that, just PM me and I'll send you a link no problem:
discord.gg/e93HH4Y

Obviously if anyone is shitty, I'll talk to them or ban them at my discretion.

I put this in the text channel in discord about looking for games too, but here some games I'd like to VASSAL or some other online service off the top of my head...

I'd be glad to teach any of them if that would help.

Argent the Consortium
Clash of Cultures (need one deck, I think event card text, in VASSAL module)
Grant Takes Command, Battle Above the Clouds or Stonewall Jackson's Way II.
Pax Renassiance and Pax Porfiriana. Have the benefit of being short.
FAB wargame series (Bulge, Sicily, Golan). These would be games we'd want to schedule a night for and might take two sessions.
Star Trek Ascendancy. The VASSAL module has the base game, this would be an all evening scheduled one I would think.

Under could not teach but want to play, would need to seriously prep:
Chaos in the Old World
Clash of Monarchs
Runewars
US Civil War

My best nights are usually Wednesday and Thursday, but I can schedule other nights.

Well I signed up.

It'd be cool to play a game of Unconditional Surrender but that'd be quite a commitment.

We could do some paths of glory at some point, I think that was something you've been itching for? Would take a bunch of sessions and it has been ages since I've played, but I used to play a lot.

Jake, I'd love to play some merchants and marauders. I have a copy but I've never played a game in anger. If you see me some evening online let me know.

I could do a couple hours Thursday night? I teach grad stats class to 6:30 CST, then I have to eat. 7CST? We could get a game started, I can try to review the rules this week?

Also, my card knowledge would be very rusty, so hopefully that would match with you. Card knowledge esp in early war is super important in PoG.

btw, a little bird sent along a *great* looking hi-res PoG vassal module, what an improvement. I just uploaded it to my dropbox and shared it the discord text chat channel I made for this game.

I'm interested. I have people coming over this Thursday for games sitting across a table from each other, but I'd be interested in future stuff. I actually have Paths of Glory on the shelf (got it in a math trade) but have never played it.
