Virtual Game Night was a success!!!
We played 18 games: Codenames x3, Batman..., Race for the Galaxy, 7 Wonders x2, Stone Age, Carcassonne, For Sale x2, 6 nimmt! x2, Jaipur, Russian Railroads, Colorpop x4, Can‘t Stop x2.

10 people attended: Anthony, Brent, Diane, JC, Liz, Margaret, Norman, Robyn, Timothy, Tina.

We met up on our Discord server, set up specially for the occasion, then played games on Web Ex (Codenames), Tabletopia (Batman...) and Board Game Arena (all the rest). Brent and I set up Voice channels named after our game rooms, which we used to chat while playing on Board Game Arena and Tabletopia. It worked great!!! We were able to talk to each other the whole time and we got a little face-to-face time when we played Codenames on Web Ex. Using the training mode on Board Game Arena coupled with a Voice channel,on Discord, we were even able to teach games! It was almost as good as playing together in person.

It didn’t seem like we ran into too many hitches. Next time, we‘ll take extra care to post what Game(s) we‘re playing and its corresponding URL and Voice Channel in the looking-for-a-game text channel, so anyone arriving on Discord when everyone else is in a game can join one of the conversations, view the game in progress and maybe even join the game late. Wish I‘d thought of it sooner.

Watch for more virtual gaming events this month here, on Meetup and or on our web site. For details on how to join in on the fun, including an invitation link to our Discord server, check out the Gaming Stuff page on our web site and our latest newsletter. Hope you can join us for the next one!

Glad to hear it was a success! My brother and his oldest came over yesterday for a Swabb family game night. We played Lords of Waterdeep, Dimension, King's Gate, Robo Rally and Cutthroat Caverns.

Thanks for hosting! Sorry I had to step out after only a couple games but it was great fun as always.

Enjoyed Playing Thanks!

Kiley Daniel, I know you were looking for a good 2 player co-op, I’ve heard this one is good (I haven’t played it), but it looks like Tim and Tina are planning on streaming a play through this evening if you’re interested. They are longtime avid boardgamers who run a game and book store here in the Charleston and really know their stuff.

Yesterday, I mentioned that storytelling games play well via video conferencing. Here's one of our favorites.

Legacy of Dragonholt is a narrative adventure game that creates a unique experience by blending aspects of roleplaying and adventure games, open world concept video games, and even Choose Your Own Adventure books. It’s one of the first games we tried to play via video conferencing.
Unlike many games, Legacy of Dragonholt is not about winning or losing, but rather about the act of creating a story. Without the need for a Game Master, this game ensures that every player has the opportunity to shape how the adventure plays out while its intuitive gameplay means that you waste little time in setup and learning the rules before jumping into your tale.

Legacy of Dragonholt captures the spirit of a roleplaying game in a board game. You can select one of the premade characters to play or build your own unique hero, playing an elf, dwarf, orc, gnome or catfolk.

In Dragonholt Village, you’ll encounter many colorful characters, each with their own stories that progress and interweave regardless of your involvement. Investigate strange happenings within the village and venture into the wilds beyond to journey through deep woods, delve into dark crypts, and confront creatures long thought dead. Battle goblins, foil the plot of an evil lord, and add a new story to your tale! The world is yours to explore.

Legacy of Dragonholt supports 1 to 6 players, ages 14 and up. We’ll teach you how to play!

For Legacy of Dragonholt, I took quick pictures of the letter, journal and village map and posted them on our Gaming Stuff page along with some premade characters. I (Tina) do all the reading. Everyone takes turns making decisions. Several of us have been meeting regularly and are almost done with the story - we only have one chapter left. Then we’ll post our used copy for sale for you to play!
