Online Play
« on: April 22, 2013, 02:14:53 AM »
MW doesn't have online play yet, but I was thinking using Skype or some other resource could open up the game to players who might not have a regular gaming group.  Would anyone want to play MW over Skype or some equivalent?  Who knows, it could be pretty ok, and an added bonus is that zones wouldn't end up really crowded like they sometimes do in-game (probably my only gameplay complaint about MW honestly).

Of course, this requires both parties being mature and understanding, but these forums are generally good-natured so I think it could work out.  

Anyone interested?

It wouldnt really be a specific program...it would basically be players getting together over skype and showing the board etc.

If Skype doesn't work out, some techie savvy soul might put together MW modules for Vassal or Zun Tsu. These are both great ways to play boardgames on line.

ICTGN  is up and running with quite a few players on board. Works well.
