 Wouldent it be interesting to have skype battles? Players from different countries could play together from their rooms.

I think it could work for kill team but not much higher in terms of points, as games go slowly over skype, but one person with both armies the board ect, and the other telling them how to move stuff and rolling their dice would work.

Probably would work best using Vassal.  Trying to do some sort of video thing won't really work because measurement would be too much of an issue.  It could happen as you suggest with one player moving everything, but that requires honesty as far as things like Line of sight.

Man it would be so great to play many diff people from all over.

One day we will be able too. There will be a program written for us to use so all is fair.

Hope that day is soon.

Yeah, Vassal is probably way easier to set up if Fritz will allow it. :)
