Sort of online gaming sesh
Posted 14 February 2014 - 01:12 PM
It took a while due to work, and one living in South Americaa nd being five hours behind us.
The game went really well and we all enjoyed it.
A couple of things came up.
Spell cards - these were open rather than hidden.
Peeking top cards - if somone played a character such as the Sage, or had an object, follower or spell that allows this ability, all other players will know.
Does anyone have any suggestions on getting around this?
We do plan to have another sesh some time in the future.

The only way I can think of at the moment would be private messaging the secret info to the player who needs to know it from the person who has the board and cards, that means only two people would know about it at least.
an option for characters like the spy could be to replace the top of deck checking ability with the ability of the prophetess to discard a drawn card and draw a new one, would change who these characters played but give them powers that stay similar in feel without making the abilities a party ability.

You could always have one party in the game that doesn't play but keeps tabs on everyone's stuff. It wouldn't be the most fun role but everyone could take turns. He would be similar to the GM in he knows all and can private message between the players that need to know certain cards. Just a thought.
I thought this as well and suggested this but one friend showed concern that I, the board owner, would miss out on the gaming fun.
I think my friends and I need to agree on some house rules if all are playing as characters.
