42 9/17/2019 1:50:00 PM Turn 1 US Message No problem. I understand.

Thanks for playing :)
41 9/17/2019 1:39:00 PM Turn 1 USSR Message Sorry, but I will stop this one here, it's really not easy to play like that as a lot of other possibilities exists. It would be much easier to play directly on VASSAL. I know that some complain about the dices on VASSAL but , as a backgammon player, I've heard this song a LOOOT of time. And certainly I'm sure some complain about ACTS dices. And since TS is a game with not a lot of dices rolls I believe VASSAL is a good solution.
Anyway, I spend too much time playing this one. So sorry again, this is the first time of my life that I resign a game before the end but I can't do it anymore. Thank you for the game and have a good day !

15 9/3/2019 3:41:00 AM Turn 1 US Message Nice :)

Its your time for Set Up.


This is how i wrote down action log (for you to know)

When talking about influence in a country:

Name (US Influence / USSR influence) add * if controlled

Examples:

N.Korea (0/3)*
Iran (1/0)
Iraq (0/1)
Australia (4/0)*

When talking about a coup:

Country_to_coup (X/Y)*
Stability Index [SI] = Z
OPs from card = M

List of possible results.

Example:

Coup in Iran (1/0)
SI = 2
OPs = 2
Results:
1-2: coup fails
3: (0/0)
4: (0/1)
5: (0/2)*
6: (0/3)*

And then i roll the die

8 9/3/2019 2:13:00 AM Turn 1 USSR Message About me, im not even so good player. But I have seen experts gameplays, so have some ideas :)

So i'll play US then. At +1? Ok with that?
7 9/3/2019 2:11:00 AM Turn 1 USSR Message With TwiStrug is better if we track the map separately and share at the start of each round :)
6 9/3/2019 2:02:00 AM Turn 1 US Message And by the way, I'm not a very strong player. I usualy play on the app. I win with the russian almost 60% of the time against the AI, I think I never won with the US.
So Just be aware you're not facing a super player ;)
5 9/3/2019 2:01:00 AM Turn 1 US Message OK, got it. I will try a solo to get used with the interface.
Is it possible to play on the same map or do we have our own ?
