Which do you prefer for remote gaming of miniature wargames.

Vassal is a game engine for building and playing online adaptations of board games and card games. Play live on the Internet or by email. Vassal runs on all platforms, and is free, open-source software.

Tabletop Simulator is an independent video game that allows players to play and create tabletop games in a multiplayer physics sandbox. Developed by Berserk Games.

(Not to be confused with Astral Tabletop, which seems to now be just Astral.)

VASSAL for boardgames.
TTS for miniature games.

TTS is easier to use.

Anyone else remember Sylvester Stallone in Demolition Man, where in the future they have VR sex with each other instead of actually touching?

I am using Vassal to play test a new game I am writing. It makes this easier than continually setting up a game plus I can save it. I also use team viewer to play games with other players in real time. We talk over our phones and play the games on my test computer. The game I use which is written for Peter Pigs "Poor Bloody Infantry" is perfect for my game.

I have not tired the other one mentioned yet.
