On Saturday night just past, four brave and patient volunteers played another multiplayer Skype test game. It was a very enjoyable evening with different tech issues, some more virtual moderating lessons learned, and a successful game to boot.

(Another issue for the planning committee.)
40mm figures on a 4'x5' tabletop.
The biggest issue at this point, one which I doubt I will be able to resolve, is that Skype seems to disable the zoom on my cell phone video camera which means I have to physically move the tripod to get a wide or close up view with subsequent visual distortion and off table shots while while changing focus as well as time lost. Not game stopping but disappointing and annoying. Still have a few days to work on it.
There are still 3 spots open for the Saturday game: Hold the Line virtual Huzzah: Affair of Outposts
and 2 spots on Sunday: Hold the Line virtual Huzzah: Frogs and Lobsters
Well that's enough on this topic until the games are played.
