Hi fellow brikwarriors,
In a PM conversation with IVhorseman, I was struck by an idea. Forum battles have been successful and popular on these boards. Major forum get-togethers like Ragnablok and Apokabriks have not. Are there other was of having battles with one another that bridge that gap. And then I thought: Skype.
I know that other wargames (Warhammer and WM/Hordes come to mind) have used Skype as a means to play out battles. It essentially becomes a 1v1 (or more if you'd like, I suppose) forum battle where one person hosts the battle with terrain and figs and another player joins in through the webcame to control one or more factions in the battle. In January a friend and are going to construct a dedicated Brikwars gaming table, and I know I'd be interested in hosting something like this on it when he and I aren't battling.
Just thought I'd throw that out there.
