Our latest Skype multi-player wargame: Bolt Action

Very interesting. Can you provide some details on the mechanics of how you set the game up? It looks like you had a couple of cameras set up, players rolled their own dice, and you pulled the initiative dice.

I am interested in doing something similar and wonder how it worked for you.

Hi. All the details are in the first video in the channel, but you're right: 2 cameras, Skype, I umpire, pull order dice, move figures and select camera views, the players give orders and throw dice. I'm playing 3 games a week with different groups of players from all over the UK, skirmish and big battle. All keep coming back for more! I hope others are inspired to try it out.
