Brikwar over Skype?

Postby Rev. Sylvanus » Sat Dec 22, 2012 2:10 am

Hi fellow brikwarriors,

In a PM conversation with IVhorseman, I was struck by an idea. Forum battles have been successful and popular on these boards. Major forum get-togethers like Ragnablok and Apokabriks have not. Are there other was of having battles with one another that bridge that gap. And then I thought: Skype.

I know that other wargames (Warhammer and WM/Hordes come to mind) have used Skype as a means to play out battles. It essentially becomes a 1v1 (or more if you'd like, I suppose) forum battle where one person hosts the battle with terrain and figs and another player joins in through the webcame to control one or more factions in the battle. In January a friend and are going to construct a dedicated Brikwars gaming table, and I know I'd be interested in hosting something like this on it when he and I aren't battling.

Just thought I'd throw that out there.

James Burgundy played a game of Brikwars over Skype with piltogg. Nevertheless I have a laptop, Lego and the need to interact with other people.

If it's going to be you and me, lawmaster, then we might as well just meet up in PA somewhere and do it IRL.

Pennsylvania would be near impossible for me to get to. Why don't you come to the west coast?

it has indeed been done before. only once though.

IT wasn't as fun as the real thing. But if you have no other options, I guess it could be ok.

I'm willing to host the first session this or next week. What time works for you guys?

Also, here is a handy map for the two or three timezones we live in.

I am in the eastern timezone (-5).

Evenings work best for me; next week is preferable.

As am I.

I recently got a Skype account. Would it be a video chat, or just voice with pictures, or what?
