I'm a long-time MWIF forum lurker and WIF player who hasn't played in a few years, and so I haven't yet jumped into the CE rules. So I actually should still be very familiar with the MWIF ruleset. My impression is that tech support has faithfully (incredibly, incredibly faithfully) been squashing bugs and progressing the game over the years, to the point that solitaire is now mostly bug-free, and Netplay is on its way there.
My goal is to play some solitaire to refresh my own memory on the rules, play with a current MWIF owner friend of mine, and also introduce another friend who has never played WIF to a computer version which enforces the rules. I'm guessing most of our play will be via PBEM.
Eventually, after all three of us gain a level of mastery of the MWIF rules, my thought would be to transition to Vassal and self-enforcement of the new CE rules (which I understand have some changes from MWIF, but the general fundamentals remain the same). So if you've read this far, hopefully I can trouble you with three questions:
1) How's the current state of the game, in your view?
2) Does my plan sound reasonable to you?
3) How is PBEM working?
