If you don't show up then we can't get into mission control, so you better come!

So, Dan, since this is virtual, do we have a virtual boardgame that we can visualize it on?
Daniel Carter
@dancarter
Jan 09 2015 19:09
I found a website to use for submitting orders to and judging, I am looking into whether there is some kind of virtual representation as well
Lorrayne Rocha
@lorrocha
Jan 09 2015 19:09
Cool! I think we can shift something together.
Oh look, new project

If we're doing a tabletop simulator, lets see if Vassal has it
That's what I tend to use for my online gaming
Daniel Carter
@dancarter
Jan 09 2015 19:11
I was mostly joking, but I am almost certain Vassal has it
Lorrayne Rocha
@lorrocha
Jan 09 2015 19:11
Bam - totally does.
Daniel Carter
@dancarter
Jan 09 2015 19:12
so perty
Lorrayne Rocha
@lorrocha
Jan 09 2015 19:14
We don't even need everyone to get it - after the resolution of moves stage, I could set up the map on Vassal then screenshot it and send it to everyone as the visual for the round
Daniel Carter
@dancarter
Jan 09 2015 19:15
yeah something like that would work

this guy I was going to hire once when I owned a development company called me last night asking for a reference. all I could remember was him showing up to an interview in a dragoncon t-shirt, and later on a phone call I remember him cutting me off mid sentence saying " hot food coming down the stairs! got to go! "

@zhumo I was thinking one week per year or six months or something
Lorrayne Rocha
@lorrocha
Jan 09 2015 23:35
One week per year is good
Two decisions to be made per week is totally doable
