Suggest a better name for the underused Remote Gaming Board, whose purpose is:

For discussion of anything related to non-face-to-face miniature gaming, including PBM, PBEM, and internet gaming.

Maybe they all have a bad connection…

I asked because I find something faintly silly about playing miniatures by mail. I don't think I have ever even glanced at that board. Once. I could be wrong.

I used to play Avalon Hill games by mail, and also Diplomacy and Slobbovia. But miniatures? Does not compute. YMMV.

Remote works for me, since it's the best one-word description I can think of currently.

If anything, I think "remote gaming" by definition should specifically include Skype and other computer/video gaming forms.

I've played in many of these and think they are very much in the immediate future of miniatures gaming.

The board title could be interpreted to mean "gaming with remote control models".

And yes, some people do play Wargames with remote control tanks, planes and ships!

Well I voted against it. So I guess is were I say, told you so. It sounds like gaming with remote control vehicles, ships and planes. Not that there is anything wrong with that. I have seen remote control ships go at it. Fun to watch.
