Part of the series: Tabletop Gaming

In this series, initiated by klaatu, analog games of various sorts are described and reviewed. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabletop_game for details.

A friend, a stranger and I played http://www.vassalengine.org/ together.

We played the Carcasonne-simple 1.2 module downloaded from http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/Module:Carcassonne.

There are some things that may be confusing the first time, but the game engine works well, the rule- and tile-set we played worked well, text chat is surprisingly adequate for talking to people while playing, and I would like to play again some time.
