Very cool!  Now I guess I need get TTS and see if runs on my laptop. And while I'm at it I should probably give this VASSAL thing a try .....

It's disappointing that LNLP harvested the World at War KS email list to promote this event. That's an unsubscribe from that list for me. It's spammy to use a list that way.

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

I get your line of thought, but there are some W@W85 events, so David was probably trying to promote it that way.

It's not an uncommon practice. A lot of other Kickstarter's I've backed have done the same thing.

It's a stretch and a mis-use of the list imho. I was on it for the KS not for other promotional emails. The subject line was for a WaW update.

No problem, I unsub from many spam lists. I see business email lists abused all the time. Generally it leads to blacklisting which is a real pain to undo.

I know it's common, but it is also a crappy practice. They've lost me as someone they can use for email marketing.

In case you didn't already know - registration for the Virtual Dragoons Assembly is live

it's $2 for registration, which is the absolute minimum they let us charge, and the bulk of that goes to the platform to support the use of their scheduling / registration software

You do NOT need a ticket if you just want to watch games.

You DO need a ticket to play in them - we will not allow non-ticketed players in the games

We've added some additional events:

2 seminars:
Data Curation & Conflict Simulation: The Example of Harpoon (or: What's in Larry Bond's Basement)
Coastal Defense's Influence on American History

and 2 iterations of Hollandspiele's Brave Little Belgium, GM'ed by Ryan, one of the co-designers.
