My local buddies insisted that we play our first in-person game of Here I Stand that Saturday, over my objections (but not too strenuous, as getting 6 people together on one single day is near impossible), but I will certainly be around on Friday and Sunday.

Is anyone giving a Vassal tutorial?

the boardgame bootcamp guys are doing a real-world event that weekend and are not able to join us this time

if anyone else wants to do a "how to VASSAL" session, we're happy to put it on the schedule!
