Star Wars: LCG On Skype/IM's? - Your Thoughts On It

30 posts in this topic

I saw a post for Star Wars: Edge of the Empire where someone was using Skype to find a game for it weekly and while I was taking a shower, it hit me! Why not start a topic about it, but for this card game.

 

What are you guy's thoughts on it? What are your thoughts on it for tabletop RPG's? Does it work for the one and not the other? Are you afraid and/or know the player might cheat by using better cards for the Balance of the Force conflict?

Let's discuss about it, shall we? I'm interested in it. =)

 

Edit: I have no expericne in Tabletop Role Playing Games. So I don't know the difference between the two and I do apologize for that as well. ^_^

I have played the game using Skype and real cards to play against the other guys from the show. It's better than using a computer program I feel as it feels more "real".

I play my best friend over Xbox Live using real cards. KS to FL baby, Best thing ever!

 

I need to try this. Didn't know you could do video with Xbox live.

I play sometimes using Xbox Live and the Kinect. You just position the Kinect so that it aims down at your play area. Works well, and is nice to have my opponent's play area on my 60+ inch screen.

Nice! I have neither a Kinect nor an Xbox but I do have a webcam on my laptop and Skype/G+... I just need to see if I can angle the webcam down enough so the play area is visible.

I might be willing to give it a shot, but we'll see.  I'm a touch on the paranoid side. :P

I am too but I like this game enough to try that. I feel like I could improve more at the game if I played more.

I've had played a handful of games with Webcam and real cards instead of OCTGN. It works, but I have trouble finding a good set up where my Webcam can cover my entire play area in a way that my opponent can actually see everything. To be fair, that's partially the fault of how small my kitchen table is.

CooMasterCoo and I have been playing using FaceTime on our iPads for quite a while now.  Works great for us.  I do like the idea of using Xbox, I'll have to give that a try.  Personally, I like using the actual cards in hand vs. playing online with virtuals.
