I have joined.

Will be closer to 8 for me, about to eat dinner.

Now to figure out voice chat.....(I’m a Luddite not a phobe!)

EDIT: I think I joined ARBBL but for the sake of completion my username is Dave674.

I have a Dominion account, never played it online but happy to give it a go. I’m free every evening! ;)

Indeed with a bit more notice let's try and get a Dominion online game scheduled. Seems a fairly low bar to attempt!

I'm Jam Warrior on there if you want to shoot me a friend request. Dave, I think you need to actively accept my request as we're only half heart friends at the moment?

I brought into Trial by Trolley on Kickstarter. Think Cards against Humanity crossed wirh a murderous tram driver! They have just released a way to play it remotely. How about trying that one evening using Zoom or similar?

First up, has anyone played Merchants and Marauders? And if so, what was you opinion?

Secondly, as a way to potentially beat the isolation blues (assuming that you have been unable to persuade your other half (or pets!) to take up gaming) I've heard some good things about Tabletop Simulator from colleagues at work. https://store.steampowered.com/app/286160/Tabletop_Simulator/. It's available for Windows, Apple and Steam, and at £14.99 it's got potential, especially if we're going to be locked down another 3 or 4 weeks.

I'm not sure too much of the DLC will float too many boats but there are apparently a considerable number of free community mods for it (X-Wing 2.0 been one of them ;) )- just need to check out the Steam forums. I'll try and get a proper look later this weekend and feedback but in the meantime, it might be worth checking it out.

I have it and we’ve played it a few times down at the club, I really enjoy it, though I think playing a merchant is far easier and more profitable!

Played Gloomhaven on TTS with the shop guys last night. Good fun if a tad fiddly as it is literally simulating every card and token as an individual physical object.

I see what you mean about being fiddly! I managed to download yesterday and have a little play - it certainly is going to take a bit of getting used to.

Tom, how did you get everyone 'dialled in' to the same game and what did you use as in game comms? Was it a chat function on the discord or is there an audio function?

There are some useful YouTube vids on how to use the software and most games seem to have instructional videos on there as well.
