vassalThe VASSAL team announced the released of version 3.1.11.  You can download the update for all major OS’s at

The new version fixes a few bugs, and will now run with a 64-bit JVM on OS X, if one is available.

VASSAL is probably one of the best desktop tools for playing wargames (and other types of games too) over the internet. Games can be played live, or PBEM, and hundred of modules for games are available.

I’ve personally spent many hours playing Battlelore and Navia Dratp with the engine, and couldn’t recommend it highly enough for anyone who has a hard time finding people to play games with, or wants to squeeze every last gaming hour out of their day.
