Hey you! Yeah you! Do you like to play Magic the gathering, but most of your friends think that you should get some sunshine, and don't like to play it with you? I think just about every nerd has had that predicament, whether it me MTG, Yu-Gi-Oh or Pokemon. That is why I have created this group. Constantly I have wanted to play, but don't have friends who I see often that want to play with me. So I started playing against friends who enjoyed the game over skype.
This is how it works:
What you need:
For the most enjoyable experience
An external monitor (If you rely on a built in webcam like most laptop users)
An external webcam.
You can use the built in webcam of a laptop without the external monitor, however, this can make it hard to see the opponents field.
How it works:
On a laptop with a built in webcam, have the screen tilted so the webcam is showing your playing field. Have your skype screen on the external monitor so you can view your opponents playing field easily.
On a PC with an external webcam, have the webcam facing the field. Simple.
This group serves as a place where you can:
A) Organize matches
B) Discuss the game
We may organise tourneys every so often, but these wouldn't have any prize, other than a title in this group.
Just a note, this is a casual sort of group. You are not required to have official tokens, and are required to sort out any differing opinions yourself.
And here is the sign up form.
Title in Group:
Favourite Deck (Custom or Prebuilt):
(If you really don't feel comfortable putting it in public, you can leave it blank and give it to people over PM who you organise to battle.
If you do play against other PE2kers over Skype, fill in this form with the result:
I will use this to have a tally going of who is playing the best. However it will only be added if the other person confirms this.
Hopefully this turns out to be a good place to organize matches!
