      It is called Vassal. A Program, where you can play many boardgames

      That was great, I've been interested in seeing a wishes team.
      I don't understand why patowmeld polymorphed in the colossus. Was it because he didn't have enough health so it didn't matter what was fielded except a kobold might swarm?

      Wow, I've only used Vassal to play miniatures games, it looks way different with dice masters.

      This might be asking to much, but I would like to see in the field stretched out to a best 2 out of 3 format (maybe even under offical wiz kids tourney rules I.e best of 3 in 50 minutes)

      That would help see both teams perform more constantly (unless the players have a day like I did last night) and also adds that little extra pressure of a ticking clock

      I agree; I think that is asking a bit much.

      That being said, I fully expect Shadowmeld/Dylan to square off again down the road. There is absolutely no way the loser of this match-up will take kindly to how this game went. (Avoiding spoilers!)

      I'm so glad to see that colossus getting some love. I built a team based around him and actually rolled over the whole three rounds of my local tournament.

      I can vouch for the same person part, the clones is questionable. I like to think you guys are extension of each others psyche And when you guys rules lawyer each other it's the best to listen to!

      Hey Guys, I just wanted to point out that EVERYONE SHOULD update their Vassal components to the latest versions when doing this. I see that on the left the AoU 1.0.5 isn't in use, as noted by the horrid S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent and The Trinity War Wonder Woman was updated back in the beginning of August. Dice Masters 3.0.Complete is complete, not the latest versions.

      This game was recorded a while ago.

      I agree though, updates GO!
