Ukrainian Crisis: New Vassal Module!

Screenshot from VASSAL website. Paul had the simple but brilliant idea of making the 5 and 6, the two “hit” faces of the die, show up reversed – making it easier to count up the hits.

Thanks to the efforts of Paul Heron, there is a new VASSAL module for Ukrainian Crisis!

This is for the Hollandspiele edition of the game, which has some extra cards. Get it at:

You may know that this game uses a “bucket of dice” combat resolution system, with 5s and 6s counting for hits. Paul had the simple but brilliant idea of making these two faces of the die show up reversed, making it easier to count up the hits. I don’t play on VASSAL much but I hadn’t seen anything like this in other modules.

Paul says he is working on a module for The Little War as well, and I am looking forward to that!

Meanwhile, the module for earlier editions of Ukrainian Crisis, by Martin Hogan, is still found at
