Having said that, being sat at home on my own and seeing no one for months on end is going to make me lose my mind.


Definitely! Is there some way we could play Twilight Imperium over Skype?!


Probably not because of hidden information, but it might be adaptable. But if we can find board games without that then yes, that would work.

I’m under no illusion that this is going away anytime soon.

Within the current caveats laid out by the Government, I'm still willing to get some gaming in and happy to either host or be hosted. And also quite capable of being flexible on timings/days given the 'On Tour' nature of things. Clearly if they decide to go French or Italian on us (I'd say unlikely as we have a reasonable economy), then other options will have to be considered.

As previously mentioned I’m a techno luddite, so can someone recommend me a budget gaming laptop?


Unable to recommend a laptop, but I do have a PS3 with several games (Red Dead, Undead Red Dead, GTA V, Uncharted 3 and Tomb Raider) that you are more than willing to borrow if you wish.

No idea if this’ll work, but some helpful person on reddit posted https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1nwZkqIoIkkUakCvjiiLul6QFObxBM0DIP--Diq1KtQU/htmlview?usp=sharing

Right techno-phobes.

Download Discord (yes it's on iPad Dave), join this server:

https://discord.gg/4Qh8gSz

I don't know how that works on iPad. Let me know your account name and I can invite you.

Let's see if we can sort something tonight. Try and get your voice chat stuff going if you have it and gather around 19:30 to 20:00. Have a phone to hand and I might have a plan.

Failing that at least we'll have a slightly more immediate conversational tool than the forum.

I'll be passing on anything online-based - I didn't like playing BB online, and I don't do online chat in games, so I'll see you all on the other side.
