I play games, and I love them. I want to play more, so I joined BSW, and I've been playing a lot of games there (Settlers, Lost Cities, and Top Race mostly). My username there is ZimP (as in Zombie in my Pocket) if you'd like to track me down. I currently have a 9 game Settlers win streak (crazy! the dice must love me right now).

However, I find that BSW rather impersonal, and in an attempt to make it personal (which is a lot of the boardgaming), I thought about using Skype's video conferencing functions. My Skype ID is JeleighAA (AA for Ann Arbor, Jeleigh is a mix of my name and my wife's name, pronounced 'jelly').

Here are some games I'd like to play on Skype. I'd like to get games that don't require BSW (maybe games where the camera can point at the board and the player?), but right now that's what I have. I know there are other online game places (such as superdupergames.com) but BSW is the one that I use. Feel free to add games you'd like to play from other places. My understanding is that Skype only allows 2-way calls, so I've only included games where we can play with two.

These are games I'd like to play with you, with video conferencing. Feel free to post games you'd like to play, or games you think would work well like this.

BSW

This would work well, playing a two player session. I like the game, although not as much as I like Detroit/Clev or Daytona 500.

I'd like to be taught this game, as it looks like something I'd really enjoy.

The people on BSW tend to want to play -reeeeeally- fast, and I'm not up for that usually. I don't mind playing quickly, but they want to have the game over -now-.

I want someone to walk me through a game. It looks fun, and I've read the online rules, but I don't think I could play a game without some help.

Yes, this really is what I looked like when I uploaded that avatar. Not that it's quite current anymore.

Provided both have the same books in their collection, this works well via telephone.

I've played by phone on several occasions over the years.
