This is why they make Skype and Google+ Hangouts. :P

Obviously we would use Skype (or Mumble for the voice chat), but how would you handle the game board/drawing of cards?  Whoever has the actual game would have to have a scanner, and perhaps a streaming camera.  Would it be something similar to rpg.net?

I suppose that, e.g. if we played Munchkin, we could all get our own deck and then just draw from each one in turn.  Pandemonium!

There's a site called... Octagon, I think... that's set up specifically for people to play card games of a couple of different kinds.  There's a virtual deck for players to draw from, an area that only you can see for your cards, etc.  It supports Magic, I know, but I'm not sure what else.

Just as a note,

It's been over 48 hours since the round began, so I imagine we will be moving forward soon. Last call for changes or votes.

It takes A&A about 48 hours to get most of its votes together, and VI has more than twice the players at this point as A&A has. Probably 48 hours is a little low of a bar for a game of VI's size just now.

Yeah, even after losing a few players, this is still larger than the largest game I ever tried running, and it was scary sometimes, trying to wrangle a vote from everyone those first several rounds.

Is this what you were referring to, Val?

I'm a little late to the board game discussion, but I've got to say, Betrayal at the House on the Hill is my all time fav. Once the mafia games are wrapped up, I'm planning on running it here on E!

That game is absolutely awesome. I have it but haven't played through all of the scenarios yet. It would be fun to do something like that here on E.

It took me ages, but I have managed to remake every game tile in GIMP, as well as a master template so i can make a map. They aren't super pretty, but they will work.

Yes, that!  I have it at home, set up for playing Magic with my friends, though we don't use it a lot anymore.  It's very basic, but it does the job.  :)

So I've been thinking about possibly putting together an Elliquiy Game Night on IRC and/or Mumble.   For the sake of simplicity, for the initial session we would play something that wouldn't require dice or a board.

Something like Say Anything. It's more of a party game, as opposed to a dice-and-miniatures game.   (Watch Wil Wheaton play Say Anything with a few of his friends here.)  If it's successful, however, I might look into investigating more complex games, such as Last Night on Earth, possibly using Octgn.

Would anyone be interested in something like that?

I dunno... a game night doesn't seem complete to me without Star Wars Monopoly... Mr. Trieste somehow always lands on Dagobah and turns it into Yoda's Pimpin' Palace.

It's even better with rum.

The equivalent of hotels in our version is Star Destroyers - he's had them stacked on the Dagobah huts (which are the first little properties right after 'go'... don't remember what they are in traditional Monopoly) like one on top of the other.

And he does this fake Yoda voice the WHOLE TIME afterwards. "Come for the wings, you do, but stay for the naughty! Mmm, yess!" Or whatever he says. I don't even remember. I'm usually too drunk.

As an aside, it would greatly be appreciated if you are sending PMs about the game that you add 'VI' or 'Virtually Irresistible' to the title (if not already there) so that they make their way into the correct labels.

Muchos gracias. :-)

Coconut run with diet coke and lime and I'm there.

Also, I <3 monopoly. (Even though I'm more familiar with the British Version as its the one I had at home.)

Um...  I would probably just get to take a sniff of that. Normally one rum and coke (with mostly coke) and I'm tipsy with a headache... :P

And Remiel, I just watched that entire episode of Tabletop. *must play now*
