Let's set up a regularly scheduled night to get elegan/tg/entlemen together online to play board games, run one-shot campaigns, and hang out, using Tabletop Simulator, VASSAL, and other programs.


>Plan a specific night and time (Weekly? Monthly?)

>Figure out a way to manage and coordinate everyone who wants to participate

>pick some games that can seat a suitable amount of people

>get everyone set up with the various programs, files, and stuff needed

>arrange a method to record our sessions and a place to host them (maybe?)

>Have fun.

Tabletop Sim has a lot going for it that makes it an ideal choice, but the price is also somewhat prohibitive. Luckily, piracy can circumvent that. If you do want to buy it legitimately, I'd say wait until it goes on sale, which will make it easier to gift copies to your fellow fa/tg/uys.

The program is actually fairly intuitive to use and has some pretty reliable hosting tools and built-in voice chat. The other big selling point is the workshop, which contains thousands of games, including scripted versions of certain games, which automates and streamlines some of the fiddlier aspects. This allows us to get anyone participating set up with the same game in a matter of minutes, as opposed to having to make everyone buy multiple programs just to play Talisman or Ticket to Ride or Carcassonne together.

Another anon suggested VASSAL, which I haven't toyed with, but it's the free, open-source, simpler version of Tabletop sim. You don't get table-flipping and wonky physics, but it's free and looks easier to cook up homebrew stuff for.

On a related note, I'd love to see /tg/ get into prototyping and playtesting their homebrew games as part of these events. Perhaps, once we're situated, we can work on teaching ourselves to make our own stuff in TTS and VASSAL

In addition to those two, which are good for board games in general, we've got stuff like Roll 20, chatrooms with built in dice rollers, and other free options. As much as I hate discord and want to resist using it if at all possible (it reeks of datamining and shady shit) it is a user-friendly program that makes it easy to manage groups of people and keep in touch, and requires no user-side hosting or server maintenance.

I'd also personally love to request that we try out stuff like friendly Krosmaster and Krosmaga games, Hex, Faeria, and various other Hearthstone-esque card game minis games that exist for PC.

I am interested, Ive run some IRC stuff on 1d4 chan before, but I can definitely understand not wanting to undermine the main board.

Its going to be interesting to see how this plays out.



Well, it's not like we can demand that everyone only runs and plays their usual games with ∞/tg/ and only ∞/tg/, but still, it would be nice to organize some stuff with people who hang out here.


File: d18f33edc830cc7⋯.gif (427.51 KB, 500x275, 20:11, sad doctor.gif)

I would love to do this but my schedule is too chaotic to commit to anything.




I am definitely interested, though I personally am a few weeks away from being able to commit to it myself (read: finals). I would personally rather use something very simple like Roll D20, but that's because I tend to prefer systems that don't necessarily require a board (such as OSRs).


File: b42170b2d4932f1⋯.jpg (31.45 KB, 301x575, 301:575, 40K Horus Heresy - Emperor….jpg)



I've got an interest in this too, for both fun and the improvement of 8/tg/.

>Weekly? Monthly?

I'd say we should do a quick game of something on a weekly basis, and try for the longer, bigger stuff on a monthly or bimonthly basis. That would give us multiple events to look forward to, and time to prepare for the bigger ones.




Scheduling issues are why I'm also interested in trying to record and post videos of our sessions. Let's you vicariously participate, and it also encourages people to join in.


Given the way that most board games seat about 4 to 5 comfortably, we'd likely have to have multiple games going at once, or people would be stuck spectating.


I see two easy ways to do this.

One: post sign-ups for games in advance.

We have a sheet where people can put down their names and we can get everything organized ahead of time. It could be here or on a googledoc or some other sign-up type thing.


>I want to host a:

board game/game of Werewolf/tabletop one-shot

>We will play on or around:

8 pm Pacific time (UTC -7)/1300 UTC+2

>I need _ Anons on _ :

3 Anons on TTS, 5 Anons on Roll20

>Other information:

Two: PUG it, baby.

Just say that you're going to do a game and see how many people are immediately down to clown. Good luck with this method.


I'd love to play HeroQuest or something with your guys. Also, if you're gonna host, you should be ready to teach other fag how to play. You basically end up doing that two or three times a game when playing with randoms on TTS at least.

Oho. So, what are the best options to start things off with? We want any failures to be hilarious, not boring.



I'm definitely interested, and have a copy of Tabletop Simulator if necessary, though I would also be open to VASSAL, Roll20, MapTool, etc. The best day for me this term (ends mid-May) would be Monday or Wednesday; the best *night* would be Tuesday. After that, I'm free Monday-Thursday.


+1 for vassal

The lack of wonky physics make it more appealing to me for reliability (and potato support) reasons, and I believe someone can set up a vassal room and have multiple games going at once. That way the odd men out can start up another quick game while waiting for a big group game to end. This best reflects how real board game nights work.

As for the time between digital games. I find that once in a fortnight is best because it isn't regular enough that people get burnt out, but is more consistent than monthly. >>308806 smaller weekly events with other planned events is also appealing


Perhaps there should be a thread that's a mixture of the two: signups and pugs. example

>running X

>on platform Y

>need Z players

>at _ time


Been looking for a steady group to RP with for a while because the other guys I would usually do it with are all unwilling to run a game so the responsibility usually falls to me, but man, I really just want to play. I'd join up in a heartbeat if any of you guys are doing it but I don't have a ton of experience. Have Tabletop Simulator and am available all week long. I can share just about every GURPS 4e PDF that exists except the very new ones (and I might buy the new ones too) but that's about all I have. Never met anyone who liked GURPS as much as me though.


Sounds good to me. I don't play board games as much as I used to, due to moving away from my Board Game Group.



I was going to direct you to the gamefinder thread, but this actually seems like a good opportunity to get more people involved with /tg/'s circle of group-deprived individuals. A lot of fa/tg/uys seem to reject online-only sessions, believing they won't be as good as in-person games.. so here's what we do

First we get set up with a reliable method for scheduling and organizing groups.

Then we get more people comfortable with TTS, VASSAL, and other virtual tabletop programs by getting people to show up for frequent community game nights.

And then, we start using the gamefinder and regularly scheduled gamenights to get fa/tg/uys to jump into online games with other fa/tg/uys.

>Well to be fair they often ain't. Being able to slap the shit out of tony is a strong deterrent to all kinds of shitty behavior.

That said, I have some high hopes for this. Hopefully fa/tg/uys can self regulate shitty behavior away.


Let's get this rolling a little bit further

Friday evenings and nights are often open for me.

Saturday night is a little iffier because I get home later from my weekly game, but I might be able to wrangle in a buddy or two from my gaming group and adjust my hours accordingly.

Sundays are no good.

I think we should schedule a specific game at a specific time. During the week we can discuss which games, and on game night, we can post up who is hosting what, on which program, on which server. Better to avoid having a dozen people all showing up with the desire to play different games and ending up with several rooms with a couple people in each.

So, something like

>Lords of Waterdeep (5 players)

>Friday 6pm PST

>Tabletop SImulator - 8/tg/ Server #1

>Password - 12345



Sounds workable.

Question, though: Can any of the systems/programs you mentioned streamline Dark Heresy/Only War/Black Crusade/Rogue Trader enough to play it?



Can any system/program streamline FATAL/Anima enough to play it?



Anon, I ask merely the difficult. You ask the impossible.


So, how many of you will be available tomorrow and what games do you feel like playing?



Me, and I'm open.



Probably, but depends on the time.

OSRs, anything you can learn on the fly.



I'm thinking board games, not so much RPGs, which take a bigger investment of time and effort.


File: 145281eb59d1ec6⋯.png (244.79 KB, 900x851, 900:851, 1324414554333.png)


Then anything that isn't Chutes & Ladders.



If you can throw together a campaign and be ready to GM for a group of random anons, I won't stop you. I just think board games are an easier, quicker way to get everyone together. Lower investment of effort lowers the barrier of entry for interested participants.



Like I said earlier, quick games can be done often, campaigns can be played more sparingly/as convenient. Both may be done.


File: 9226d96d177cc4c⋯.png (600.97 KB, 500x569, 500:569, ClipboardImage.png)


You know it would be insanely fun to run a 12 man Dungeon Crawl.. So if you're willing to GM an insane one-shot and wrangle a massive party, I'd be down for that as one of our events.

For really simple games that we could set up and play quickly, we have a variety of social lubricant, like Cards Against Humanity or Superfight.. but I've played both of those more than enough times to be bored of them, plus they just aren't as fun if you don't know the group well enough. Also, Max Temkin is a cunt.

There's also games like Snake Oil and Stor War, which fill a similar niche to CAH and Superfight. Or there's Munchkin, which isn't the best game, but it's entertaining enough and not so clunky as to make it difficult to play in a virtual setting.

And as long as we're kicking around the idea of sporadically running whole campaigns, I remember we had an anon around here who was offering to run Kingdom Death for people in TTS.

I'd love to see a /tg/ runthrough of the AD&D Random Dungeon Generator. Or maybe pic related.



I don't thing the Hyperhypercube is logistically playable as a dungeon.. Navigating it alone would take all night, but add in traps and monsters and we'd all go made before our characters were ever killed.



I'm down to play some board-, social- or card game.


File: edc1f828e22163b⋯.gif (385.18 KB, 1200x787, 1200:787, haha.gif)




So, something light and social tonight on TTS then? I'm going to be free any time after noon and my non-8ch friend said he'd be up for board games with anons.

I minght have some time to drop in tonight if we can get some games going



Hope to see it happen. Gonna take a nap and hope I don't miss it.



What games are you thinking of playing?



I was thinking we could do light social games that we could find on the steam workshop (if there is much) and play those. Dont want anything too heavy that would take multiple sessions




Well, it's going to be Tabletop Simulator sometime tonight (maybe in about 4 or 5 hours if that works) and the games on the top of my list are all easy to learn, light and social games

>Tem-purr-a: Russian Roulette meets Uno

>Snake Oil: Get a hand of random words and objects, pitch it to the judge, best sales pitch wins

>Story War: Argue about monsters and wizards fighting at a carnival. More fun with booze

All of these are available on the TTS Workshop for free and easy enough to learn. I'm open to other suggestions, though. Either we decide now, or one of us just starts a session and says "I'm running this game now."



If I start something in an hour, would anyone be available?



Whatcha starting? I might be here in the next hour or so, providing I don't go out to supper.

What site is this server supposed to be on?



Tabletop Simulator.



Just got some weird connection error, so I'm closing the server for now. We can try this again a little bit later when people are actually around to play.



I'm back and ready.



How many other people do we have?

O-okay. Have fun.



I'd be up to go



TTS is on sale right now for 10$ and the workshop has thousands of free games and resources.



Alright, server going back up in a moment. I hope you guys have mics because I don't intend to play this by text chat alone.

Whoops. Quoted the wrong post.




Good game.


Other than failing to read the rules correctly the first time, and some minor mic delay issues, things went pretty well. Someone else might need to host next time, or we might have to use some outside application for the voice chat, but it was fun and I see no reason not to do this as often as we possibly can.



I think I'll try this another day. Once I get acclimated to my job.


I'll try to join you guys next time and try not to spill my spaghetti all over the table




Man I don't check /tg/ often enough. I'll join next time if I notice the game before it's already over.



You should be obsessively checking and posting on /tg/ at all waking hours, and sometimes in your sleep, once you master astral posting.


File: 52967b179b97669⋯.jpg (185.62 KB, 1754x1275, 1754:1275, nosferatu_gamenight.jpg)

So, do we want to try and shoot for Friday or Saturday evening next week? Or maybe just play fast and loose with the scheduling and have people post here whenever they want to host a game?

Also, I tried to purchase another TTS 4-pack while it was on sale and it said I couldn't because I already owned the game. I was planning on gifting copies to needy anons.



>I tried to purchase another TTS 4-pack while it was on sale and it said I couldn't because I already owned the game

I don't think you can buy a 4-pack on steam if you already own the game. Any copies you want to gift have to be bought individually



Well, in that case, anyone who is interested in playing some games with us better buy it while it's still on sale. You've got 19 hours.


If it's alright with you guys, I think this thread should also be used as a TTS (and similar online board/card game program) gamefinder thread for people who are bored and want to play games with other anons.


File: b0d81af68ee4605⋯.png (367.49 KB, 650x518, 325:259, nPqIQlV.png)

I'm glad I found this thread I have no friends anons. at least none that can sit down for more than 5 minutes.



Can't play now, but if you ever want to join in or if you're just bored and want to see if anyone's around who wants to fuck around on TTS with you, go ahead and post here.


The weekend is rapidly approaching. Who is up to have another board game night and what do we want to play?



Honestly, I've kind of had an urge to play Red Dragon Inn or Secret Hitler, as entry-level or meme-ish as they are. Just about anything else is fine too.



I'd be up for learning either one.



Haven't heard of either. How are they?



Hmm and how about we all try to do some KDM? it seems that TTS has a good scriped version of it.



Red Dragon Inn is a competitive card game about a bunch of adventurers getting drunk, gambling, and getting into fights.

Secret Hitler is from the Cards Against Humanity faggot. Roles are handed out secretly with several players are Democrats and several being fascists, and one being Hitler. Hitler doesn't know who is his ally, but the fascists know who Hitler and each other are. The game is played in rounds of deciding who will be the chancellor and drawing policies to be passed. The goal for each side is to pass enough fascist or democratic policies to win, with certain conditions that can let fascists immediately end the game.

It's just a little too bloated to be a simple hidden identity game, and once they release a physical version, it will probably be the new normalfag meme game, but it's interesting to play a few times with a good group, at least.





ahahaha dis nigga serious




KDM is also more of a campaign game, though, right? As in you are meant to play a continuous game over many sessions and develop your character as you go. I would like to give it a try since I will never drop several thousand dollarydoos on one of the kickstarters but it seems like a hard game to just have a bunch of random folks jump in on.

Took a look at the Steam Workshop for TTS, people have been posting the D&D board games if anyone wants to try running one of those.


I'd give it a shot as long as someone is willing to teach.


I rather enjoy RDI. There are tons of different character decks with their own gimmicks and playstyles, so things stay pretty fresh between games. It becomes kind of a slog towards the end of a game unless you rush through it or come up with some sudden death rules. Once there are only one or two people left, things kinda become predicable. I hear the game's more fun with drinks, but I've never tried it like that though I wouldn't be against it. There's some decent waifus, too, if that's your thing. Last I checked, the TTS version has every character and all the drink decks as well as some of the promo drink cards that were kickstarter exclusive or something.

Secret Hitler, on the other hand, really depends on the people your playing with. Shit can get heated if you've all got a similar sense of humor and can get comfortable enough with each other. Otherwise, the bloat becomes more noticeable and things become boring.

>it will probably be the new normalfag meme game

It basically reached that status after TotalBiscuit played it on stream a while back.



If it is more of a campaign game, it could probably be our big (bi)monthly game, or at least one of them.

Didja decide on what to do?




Not sure how good my connection will be, but I guess I'll try running RDI if you guys want to play and if no one else is going to run something. I'm free all this weekend and around 7-8 PDT (about 3-4 hours from right now)




I'm free and willing to play just about anything right now. I hosted last time, but my connection isn't too great, so there was a huge delay on the voice chat.


Right, thinking I'm about ready to play. Just wanna gauge interest before I actually start up a server. Anyone still interested in playing Red Dragon Inn through Tabletop Simulator?



Still here.

Taking a short break for now. I'll start thing back up in about ten minutes.




C'mon over, have some fun


And that's it for tonight. Hopefully we'll have a bigger player turn-out for whoever hosts next week's game.


Friday is upon us. What are we playing?



It feels real bad when I want to hang out and do these but have to choose between this or FNM



When does FNM end? Because that last two times we've started pretty late. Plus there's always saturday.



Starts at 7 and ends at 11CDT


Well, I've got free time today. Who, what, when, where, and how?



That's going to be quite late…


I've got nothing planned but will play just about anything.


I'm up for something later today or tomorrow. Anything's fine with me as well.


I've got some free time today and would love to join in on this. Since people seem to be good with anything, what would be a good game to kill a few hours' time with?



I've got some shit that needs to get done today, but if I can get it done within the next few hours, I wouldn't mind running RDI again. It'd be much better with more people this time. Otherwise, it'll fall on someone else to host something.

I'd say it went pretty well. Should we avoid games with a low player limit for next time ? Part of me wants to try running heroquest.


Probably had something to do with all those knives you kept finding in peoples backs.



>all those knives you kept finding in peoples backs.

Technically I only found the one. Everything else was you guys mistaking my favorite contact poison for healing salve.

>Should we avoid games with a low player limit for next time ? Part of me wants to try running heroquest.

That sounds like it'd be fun. I'll try to make it next week as well.

Let me now if the time doesn't work for you. I got the whole day free as far as I know, so I don't mind starting earlier or later. Here's a higher quality scan of the rules. The thing is meant to be printed out and turned into a booklet, so expect to be rotating the screen and looking for the right page if you use it. http://north-american.yeoldeinn.com/downloads/system/system-instruction-booklet.pdf



I've got work this Friday, but will be free about 1-2 hours later than your intended start time.

Looking forward to it. -humble




Git in 'ere, ya grots!



Won't be joining you guys tonight. I've got stuff early in the morning tomorrow. How everything goes well.



It's okay, we've doubled up on characters.

Anybody else who wants to join can take over the Barbarian or the Wizard if they want.


And so the Barbarian and the Wizard scurried back up the stairs to the safety of the surface realms, companions dead and task left unfinished…


YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.

After a long fight, only two of our heroes return home covered in boo boos and tears. That was fun



It was a pretty enjoyable game. I'm looking forward to trying again, now that we know to run like fuck if we see Chaos Warriors.


So, it's Thursday. Anybody got anything planned for this Friday night?



I'm up and down for anything, including continuing last week.



i probably wont be in as customs appears to have my new lappy held up, but have fun.



Any given reason why?

Virtual anime board game with some unforgiving RNG. You roll dice to move around the board and depending on what space you land on you fight something, gain/lose stars (points basically), or warp to some other point on the board. The you win by either knocking out other players a certain amount of time or accumulating a certain amount of stars and you get cards you can play to help you do either. It's simple and fun, but you can really get fucked with some bad rolls.

Thinking about it now, I think someone recreated it in TTS, actually.


Welp, it's Friday and just about night in most places. We doing anything?


Unless someone with a strong desire to showcase a game steps up or HeroQuest DM changes his mind on running tonight, I'd like to host. We'll be playing either Epic Spell Wars, Cards Against Humanity or Secret Hitler, depending if any prospective players have any drothers. If not, Epic Spell Wars.

Description from boardgamegeek

>HeroQuest is Milton Bradley's approach to a Dungeons & Dragons-style adventure game. One player acts as game master, revealing the maze-like dungeon piecemeal as the players wander. Up to four other players take on a character (wizard, elf, dwarf, or barbarian) and venture forth into dungeons on fantasy quests. Plastic miniatures and 3-D furniture make this game very approachable. Expansions were also released for this system.



Looking forward to not fucking up this time.



I should be able to make it this time.



I should be able to make it on time to this one, but might be a little late to the party. And in case anyone who wasn't at the last session wants to know what happened:

>An elf named Elf and a dwarf named Dwarf team up with a nameless human barbarian and a somewhat shady-looking wizard named Nograz to do battle with the minions of the evil wizard Zargon.

>They start things off with an easy tutorial mission, sent into the underworld below to find and destroy a gargoyle or some shit.

>The barbarian kills lots of orcs and goblins.

>The elf finds lots of treasure.

>The dwarf keeps falling into holes for some reason.

>The wizard mostly hangs back and conserves his spells.

>Supplies start running low, and the elf decides to ignore the obvious boss door in favor of checking out a side room, because more treasure.

>It's two Chaos Warriors guarding a treasure chest.

>The elf and the dwarf die within the next three rounds.

>The elf was holding most of the treasure, so that's all lost.

>The barbarian gets a lucky hit in and the wizard blows all his spells, and they just barely take down one of the mighty Chaos Warriors.

>Badly wounded, they run away from the other one and beat a hasty retreat back up to the surface, to use the meager amount of gold the barbarian was carrying to resupply and go back for another try.

>They still haven't even laid eyes on that damn gargoyle.


Game soon?



Should be, yeah. 8pm PDT is 11pm EST, so about 38 minutes left or so.



As always, we'll wait a few minutes for slots to fill, so go get a snack or something. Last session lasted about 3 hours, so be forewarned. This session could end faster though.




We got Chrow playing tonight. One more and we'll have a full party.



The boss is on the roll. (and dubs)

And here's a few screenshots from later on in the session. First, after we cleared out the fireplace room and did some exploring in the surrounding areas, and second, the dwarf getting crushed by falling rocks while trying to disarm a ceiling trap.

Once again, the dwarf and the elf were a magnet for misfortune in this crazy dungeon.



Sounds like you had fun, dubsman. Which did Chrow play?

What is this game? I swear I've actually played it before but maybe that kind of exact tile design is just pretty common in /tg/ stuff.



Honestly thought I was on /v/ when I made the post.




Hero Quest on Tabletop Simulator


If you guys still want to finish that quest, I'll start up a server in an hour. Or I can start it up earlier if y'all want.



I'm available, and hoping to finish that quest. I don't mind starting earlier if the other players want to, otherwise I'll there in a little under an hour.



Just got in myself. I'm good.



I'm ready to go.





Server will be up in just a minute, just gotta get my mic set up. Same server info as last time.


Server's up, get in here ya cunts.



We could always use someone to play the elf, so we don't have a doubled up player, and there's room for spectators.

After the barbarian carved his way through both the Chaos Warrior and that mummy in the corner (with some aid from the wizard's timely buff spell), Varagg the Gargoyle ran away crying like a little bitch.

Upon chasing him down, the barbarian ended him with two strokes of his blade. Victory!



Not so dumb after all.


So, Friday is almost upon us again. Anybody have any games to propose for this week?



I'd like to sit back an be a player this week, but I'm not opposed to hosting HeroQuest again if no one else is gonna host. I suppose I can try to learn something new by tomorrow or host Secret Hitler if we can get at least 5 people together.



How good is HeroQuest, dubsman?



Chaos in the Old World on VASSAL engine. It's sum gud shit.



I'd say it's pretty fun. It's easy to pick up and difficulty is mostly determined by how well the players work together. The first quest was designed to really tell you to work together and our playthrough nearly ended in a TPK. The players communicated much more during our revisit of the first quest and, though there were some challenges, the players got through it pretty well and with no deaths.



I'll admit, I've had a bit of a hankering for Talisman or Relic recently, myself. I know that those games can run a bit longer than expected sometimes, though.


Tell us more about it, anon. A cursory search tells me that it's about playing as Warhammer's Chaos gods and trying to destroy the world of man?



It's a little bit like Risk if Risk was actually fun and had RPG elements. You place troops and cast magic, add corruption tokens to regions of the Old World and claim victory points from them until you and the other players ruin them like the shitty houseguests you are. Each god plays exactly the way they should (Tzeentch can score VPs practically anywhere and can stall the other players out so nobody can stop him, Nurgle is slow and predictable but hard to shift once he gets a foothold) and has a slate of bonuses they can earn by doing fluffy things (Khorne kills people, Slaanesh corrupts areas with nobles in them). There's also a random event deck that forces you to think on your feet and opens new scoring opportunities. You win by either maxing out your upgrade dial, reaching 50+ victory points (technically you win by having the highest point total after one player hits 50, but I digress) or having the highest point total when 5 regions get ruined and End Times happens.

1d4chan actually has a good article on it: https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Chaos_in_the_Old_World


The time is nearly upon us. Are we going to be playing anything tonight or should we play something tomorrow night?



I'm drained tonight. If we can play something simple, like CAH simple, then I'm down.



Tomorrow then. Friends don't let friends play CAH. (Though I wouldn't be completely opposed to something 2silly like Board Game Online.)



Same here. I'm wiped out after hauling shit around today.



I've played that before. It was like playing through a Wile E. Coyote short.


So, is anyone still interested in the possibility of recording these weekly game nights and putting them up on youtube or somewhere like that? I've been looking into different screen recording software for my own reasons and wouldn't mind handling the recording and uploading it there's still interest in it.



Maybe streaming might be a better option. I honestly don't think the banter that goes on during a game night is funny enough to be worth watching back after the fact. It's more like a "you gotta be there" kind of funny.



It's a nice idea and would be great for giving smaller games more presence.

I, personally, have concerns about anonymity. I don't want my steam account associated with who I can be behind the name Anonymous in such a public manner.





I already know how to stream to youtube and use open broadcast. It's really not that hard. Something you can teach yourself in an afternoon.




True, those are two definite issues. We're not exactly professional entertainers (though I'm not sure streaming would help with that), and there's a big difference between being an anon and having your name attached to something. TTS will let me hide the name list that appears in the upper-right screen, and hide the chat as well, but the actual usernames displayed on the table itself will still appear.

Temporarily changing your steam profile name could be an easier solution, though.


Right, I saw that myself when I started looking into it. Recording game sessions and putting them up somewhere is the easy part. It's making those sessions something worth watching that will probably be a bit more tough.



>Temporarily changing your steam profile name could be an easier solution, though.

You'd probably want to change your avatar, too, but that's still not exactly a perfect solution.

>It's making those sessions something worth watching that will probably be a bit more tough.

And that's the crux of the issue. Even if we solved the issue of privacy, I don't think we're either high-energy enough nor comfortable enough with each other to make something worth watching.

>And that's the crux of the issue. Even if we solved the issue of privacy.

Last thing I need is my oy veys being tracked back to my RL.

>I will not show up for streaming game night.

I am interested in playing games and hanging out with /tg/ folk not helping some guy build his youtube followers.

>We still giving this(regular non-streamed game night) a go tonight?



>I am interested in playing games and hanging out with /tg/ folk not helping some guy build his youtube followers.

8chan has a general allergy to e-celebs for a lot of reasons, but a lot of it is unfounded. Like freaking out about people not making webms for every youtube video. It's not like they'll steal money straight from your wallet if youtube logs 20 views from random anons, y'know?

But I get it. When people try to build themselves up from an anon into an online persona, it turns into exploiting a community that exists for its own sake to glorify one's self. Kind of like people who take screencaps of imageboard threads and post them on reddit and tumblr so they can get those sweet, sweet upboats and notes.

However, there's another way to think about this: Youtube is free, unlimited hosting. Recording the game night sessions doesn't have to be a matter of going full e-celeb faggot who wants youtube shekels and brand deals. It can just be a matter or archival and allowing people to see what they missed.



>It can just be a matter or archival and allowing people to see what they missed.

Yeah, that's basically what I was thinking when I brought the topic of recording things back up. I'm the guy that doesn't even have a mic and uses the chat window each week, so I definitely don't give a shit about being an eceleb or whatever.

That said, since there are other problems with the idea, I think we should just drop it and get back to talking about games. Game night was pushed back a day, but I think we're still undecided on what's actually getting played, right?



It is nice to imagine the possibilities, but more than anything else, we need people to actually stay on /tg/ enough to participate in these things. Playing games is kind of the crux of the hobby after all.



>we're still undecided on what's actually getting played, right?

Yes, I believe that is so.

I would love to host something new tonight, but I have to work just nearly up to that 8p/11et start time, so I can't learn anything new tonight. I want to try CLANK! someday.

So, who wants to play a board game? I have Clue, The Game of Life and Pokemon Master Trainer.




What? Nigga that's way too late for most of the US



I actually spent a lot of time last night playing around with the scripted version of Kingdom Death: Monster that's on the workshop, familiarizing myself with how it works and setting up a table for the initial Prologue/tutorial battle. The rule book is actually written with the idea that the players will read through it as they do that opening battle and is designed to teach you the game as you go, so if there's any interest, I'd be happy to run a game and at least get through that initial Prologue to see how it plays. I'll be at work until about 11pm est tonight, myself, so you won't have to worry about missing out on it.

And if that doesn't get enough interest, Clue sounds fun.


Well, there's always the option of somebody else starting something up early and letting the night owls join in partway through.



KDM sounds interesting. I don't remember ever liking Clue. Then again, I don't remember actually ever playing a proper game of clue.

I kinda been wanting to see how Risus would play out in Tabletop Simulator.

Anyone interested in a 9-11pm EST minor RPG session. Lets say Risus supers set in the My Hero Academia world but in America (which is to say, that Powers are common but heroes are not).




Why would you use TTS to play Risus? That shit's so fucking freeform you could play it in an IRC channel and not lose much.

>Why would you use TTS to play Risus? That shit's so fucking freeform you could play it in an IRC channel and not lose much.

Because I want to see how RPG's work on the TS? Why should I lose anything?



>Well, there's always the option of somebody else starting something up early and letting the night owls join in partway through.

You know what? Fuck it, I'm going to do exactly that. We're going to play Chaos in the Old World with VASSAL.

Get VASSAL at vassalengine.org

Get what you need to play CitOW here: https://a.doko.moe/yyyxsk.zip

Install the module (double click on the .vmod file) follow the wizard, select "Look for a game online" and join the room named "Tee Gee" by right clicking and selecting "Join Room" from the menu. I'll be happy to talk you through the rules if you need help.



Well, about half an hour 'til I'm off work. Who's playing what?



Alright, I tried installing VASSAL and following the instructions for CitOW as soon as I got home holy hell, that was a lot faster than downloading TTS through Steam and there didn't appear to be any rooms open at all.

If there's anyone still interested in KD:M, the room's up now.

>Name: teegee games knight

>Password: 12345



Oh, and this is on TTS, of course.



I've got a thing installing right now. I'll drop in if it finishes soon.



Your KD:M room is completely broken. I'm going to restart TTS to see if it's on my end.


Yeah, I think it's on your end, S.



Alright, I tried closing down and recreating the room. If it still doesn't work, then I guess somebody else will have to run something.



It's working better, but it's still kaputt. Which version are you using? I want to download it on my side to see if that helps.



Kingdom Death: Monster scripted v2


If it's going to be this much trouble to get things running, I think we should probably just set it aside for some other night and play something easier to run.



That didn't work.

My guesses are, in order of likeliness:

The mod has become broken over time.

Your setup has an issue with hosting a game of this magnitude.

TTS broke some small part of itself, recently, and no one has noticed.

There is a setting, somewhere, that needs to be tweaked.



I think that second option is the most likely. I am playing on what is essentially a toaster. So I guess me hosting anything is pretty much out for the foreseeable future?



Do you think it would work if someone else was hosting?



It was working fine on my end before, so it might.



I don't know if only host can take the GM slot, but I could try hosting if you want.



Well, there's not really a need for anyone to take the GM slot, I just took it before to give anyone who showed up the chance to pick which color they wanted to be. All players have full permission to work everything by default, since that's how the actual tabletop game itself works. If you'd like to try hosting, you're welcome to do so.



I'll get a server up right now using the same info as here >>317489 ,then. How many players did you set it to allow?



It's a four player game by default, and tonight seems like one of those nights where we aren't likely to get more than that, so four players should be good.

YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.

Well, that was super fun. Thrown into an immediate deathmatch with a massive lion, with only a scrap of cloth for armor and a sharp rock for a weapon.

And then we wound up mostly punching the beast into submission with our bare hands and a bunch of hilariously lucky rolls. And afterwards, the village of Light's Waning was founded.



Oh, and the video is just the opening narration that you read out at the beginning of the game, except done by a professional. Does a pretty good job setting the tone for the game, I think.



Friday is nearly here and that means there'll be more HeroQuest soon. Last session, our brave heroes returned to the catacombs to destroy the evil gargoyle Verag and his minions. Before, our heroes were overwhelmed by the strength of Verag's minions. But after enlisting the aid of a cunning wizard and using the power of teamwork, our heroes were able to defeat Verag and his minions! Their quest, however, as only just begun and many trials await our heroes. Will they emerge victorious? That is for you to decide.

I'll try to make it this week, but that late start time is still murderous.



Work is being a huge pile of dicks tonight, so I might be a little late.



Actually, never mind. Looks like I just barely managed to make it out on time after all.


Server will be up in around 5 - 10 minutes. We'll give it a short amount of time for slots to fill and then we'll start.

Bio: A memeber of the Singing Hills, Bozarbob has a deep singing voice and is renowed on Karoke Night. His love of Song is only equaled by his love for battle. He is currently perfecting his Orcus Opera, a figero in felony and a jaunty limrick in lacerations. The Single Handed Saviour of Sir Ragnar.


And that wraps up tonight's game. Good job, all. Everyone survived and the day was saved.


File: 5db1f2ff04409cf⋯.jpg (266.22 KB, 1024x819, 1024:819, HeroquestArmory.jpg)


I'm not sure about saving the day, but we certainly picked up a nice, fat paycheck for our work, along with the treasure we looted from the dungeon on the way out. Next time, we'll have quite a few choices available for what we might want to buy.


Quick post: I feel like running Legendary: a Marvel DBG tomorrow.



>In the game each player takes the roll of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents recruiting heroes and fighting villains. A villain deck is created based on an over-arching mastermind and the scheme the mastermind is trying to complete. Players choose heroes to combine into a hero deck or add them at random. These heroes will be available for recruitment and can be used to fight the mastermind and his minions. The players win the game if they defeat the mastermind 4 times. The players lose when the scheme's "Evil Wins" conditions are met. If either the Villain deck or the Hero deck run out of cards, and the players cannot successfully finish the Mastermind by the end of that turn, the game is a draw.

Sounds like an interesting game, anon. I'll be looking forward to trying it out.



Sounds neat. I'll be there.


Tabletop sim is 50% off again. I'm prolly gonna pick up a copy and see if I can get it to work.



I wanted to buy multiple copies to hand out to fa/tg/uys but Steam is dicks about buying multiple four-packs.


I'd like to start in 2 hours, but I can start anytime after that this evening. Pipe up if 2 hours is too soon.



About 9 pm EST? That would normally be too early for me, but I should be able to make it this week.

Where are all you faggots?



Ended up having shit to do today. You still hosting or are things wrapped up for today?



We just finished up one round and are about to start up a second one. Come on in, the game's actually pretty fun. You can work up to some crazy combos depending on your build choices.


First game has finished up.

We're going for round two!

There'll be a 10-15 rest period as it is set up. Join in!

Anyone who wants to get in on the TTS action, it's on sale for 10 dollarydoos. Sell some cards, scrape together some pennies and consider joining in. Also remember the following:

>You don't need to buy any of the "DLC" games

>All workshop content is free

>If you join someone else's game, it will download all the assets you need to play the game on the spot

>Built in voice and text chat

>Fairly good for running board games, card games, and RPGs

>You can play with all those awesome fa/tg/uys you love so much.


That wraps that up. See you all next week.


So, first we had Spider-Man and some of the Avengers team up to stop Red Skull from charging up his cosmic cube, and then we had Captain America and Nick Fury drag Hulk, Thor and Spider-Man into helping them stop Magneto from teaming up with the Skrulls and invading the planet. Oh, and Deadpool was there, too.

That was fun. We should try playing Legendary again some time.

Wow. I knew /v/ could get stupid sometimes, but this takes the cake. Welcome to our Dark Kingdom.



Sounds like someone just wanted to complain. Either way, /v/ has been unsalvageable for some time now.


So, what games do you play? I like to read the ruleset beforehand to not be that guy. I cant host battletech, I have lots of game assets if anyone's interested



I'd be up for some games, probably might have to learn a couple of them.

also can you or can't you host battletech i'm confused


I've been itching to play some games that involve lots of calvinballing. Anyone here looking to start anything like that?



Can, of course. Typo

I can also teach how to play, I've done it with some people but idk how it'll work online


So… will there be more HeroQuest this week?



Megamek or TTS?



Why, yes, yes there will be more


Friday is nearly here and that means we're in for more HeroQuest. Last session, after passing their final test, our brave heroes head back into the stone labyrinth to rescue Sir Ragnar, one of the Emperor's most powerful knights. Following their intuition, the party fought their way through several Orcs and the deadly Fimir–a horrible, one-eyed reptile-like monster–all guarding the injured knight. The monsters were no match for our brave heroes and Sir Ragnar was found, but this proved to be only the beginning of their troubles. Upon opening the door to Sir Ragnar's chamber, a tiny imp shrieked it's little head off and alerted the entire dungeon! Wave and wave of horrible monster charged at our heroes as they escorted the injured knight out of the labyrinth. With a few potions, some clever thinking, and the indomitable strength of one particular barbarian of the Singing Hills, our heroes struck down every single opponent who appeared before them. With the labyrinth empty, our heroes took their share of the labyrinth's treasures and left victorious. Just as one quest has ended, another shall begin. Will our heroes once again emerge victorious? That is for you to decide.

We'll give it a few minutes for set up and for seats to fill, and then we'll get this thing rolling.


That's unfortunate. Welp, next time.


And that's a wrap. Monsters were slain and treasure was gained thanks to everybody who showed up.


>Began play with two players missing this week.

>Bozarbob the singing barbarian and Graznoz the lucky wizard are off having some other adventure, leaving Rogers the dwarf and Elfis McDiesalot to hit up the local adventurer's guild for two random, nameless schmucks to bring along.

>The Quest: Enter the underworld once more to track down and destroy Ulag, the Orc Warlord who kidnapped brave Sir Ragnar last time.

>Before entering the dungeon, the Elf and Dwarf purchase shiny new helmets to improve their defenses.

>Jokes are repeatedly made throughout the session about poor rolls on both sides of the GM's screen being caused by the comically oversized horns on said new helmets.

>Jokes are also made about this shady new barbarian and his obvious drug habit, as he exited the dungeon at the end of the session carting away a massive armful of potions that he picked up along the way.

>The dungeon itself is fairly easy, though the extra defenses certainly help.

>The dwarf comes out of the fight with the orc warlord and his bodyguards with only a single hit point remaining.


>Afterwards, the party raids the warlord's treasury.

>They find no treasure, just an orc hiding inside a single treasure chest for some reason.

>Searching every room in the dungeon on their way out, the party finds enough extra gold to make it out with quite a haul to spend on better weapons and equipment.

And thus ended Quest #3. Pretty easy so far, but the dungeons themselves have been fairly light on traps and enemies. Things should get interesting when the difficulty starts ramping up on us.



Welp, I couldn't get in due to the hour. Can it be at least 3 hours earlier next time?


Since no one has stepped up for the evening, I'll host.


>Legendary: A MARVEL Deck Building Game

< ~5pm Pacific and 8pm Eastern; going for hours

>TTS Server - Friday Teej

>Password - EXCELSIOR

Drop in when you want, games usually aren't too long. I hope to be able to host for at least 5 hours.



Won't be able to show up for the beginning, but hopefully things will still be going by the time I get home.



Starting nowish?




How many people you got so far?



I had one person drop in, but then drop out.

Still open; I'm doing a solo round for the hell of it.


I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to make it this week, though I should be back next week to continue on with HeroQuest.



Sorry, m8, I'm not gonna be able to pop in tonight.



<That's all for tonight.


this seems like loads of fun, I'll try and join next time, do you guys normally do voice chat or something? and should I but TTS or just torrent that shit



We usually just use the voice chat in TTS. It's laggy, but it works well enough. You can try torrenting it, but I don't know how well that'll work over. The torrents I've seen floating around are of outdated versions, and I don't know if you can connect to a legit copy with one.


Of course, if you want to try hosting a game on something free like VASSAL or Roll20, go for it. Sorry for double posting


I have a sub to dominion online (dominion. Games) if anyone is interested in playing the original deck builder?



I'd love to, but I don't have any spare money to invest in new things. If there's a free version or a basic version for TTS, I would be down to play sometime.



Unless I move the game to the weekend, the most I can do this week is about an hour earlier.

Would it be better for everyone interested in this week's HQ session to start on Saturday or Sunday night around 5 pm PDT/8 EST?



I'll actually be available at that time on Sunday evening, but not Friday or Saturday.



Basic set is free for anyone

Only one person needs to sub to get access to all the cards.

How hard is it to set up a card game on tts?



I can do Friday or Sunday, but not Saturnday.


So, HeroQuest this Sunday, I take it?



Going to be out of town this weekend, so no TTS either way.



Hopefully Sunday if I don't have work/don't work late. I'll post the announcement tomorrow when I know my next shift.



Here it is late, but here we go! Though it may be on a different day, it's time for more HeroQuest! After successfully rescuing Sir Ragnar, the party was called upon by Prince Magnus to seek out and destroy the monster responsible for Sir Ragnar's capture. That monster was Orc Warlord, Ulag. After buying new defenses, our heroes returned to the underworld and infiltrated the warlord's stronghold. They moved from room to room, deftly slaying any monster who dared cross their path. Covered in blood and potions, our heroes made quick work of Ulag's lair and helped themselves to it's treasures. All went well last time, but will things be as easy this time? That is for you to decide.

We've still got three spaces open. If anyone wants to go on a good old-fashioned dungeon crawl, tonight would be a good night to hop in and give the game a try.


Server's down. Let's try this again next weekend.



Oh, wow. I fucked up.

I said I could play on Sunday, but I forgot to check if anything was happening on that day. I checked for the Friday game and then just ignored the thread until just now. I apologize for that.



Eh, no worries. Weekend's almost here again, so let's give this another shot. To anyone interested in playing this weekend: should we play Friday night like usual, or would Saturday or Sunday work better?



Saturday would probably work better for myself. In the event that we actually do this, I volunteer that we try TripleA. It's an Axis & Allies clone for >Java http://www.triplea-game.org/



If you want to start some time earlier than 11pm EST, I'll be able to make it Friday this week, but not any other day. Otherwise, I can make that late night time slot on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, whenever's good for everyone else.



Last week didn't turn out so well, so let's give it another try. The write-up for last session is a few posts up.

I will try to be there. My sister invited me for dinner and needs to talk about something, but she's being cagey about what. I may be a little late to that.



I'll definitely be late, but if it's still going on by the time I'm home from work, I'll see if I can jump in.



Oops, I got my days mixed up. I will not be able to make Saturday night at that time.

>The guy running the game gets complaints about the late start time and tries to start the game at an earlier time to accommodate people

>Two weeks in a row, nobody can make it for the new, earlier start time

Yeah, that definitely sucks. That said, I'm heading home from work now if the server's still up.



As the Anon who got his days messed up; Sorry, I just got home.


It really was better when we had that later start time, huh?



meant to make an appearance, but game night with RL friends got slightly derailed by a bottle of whiskey and we spent a good few hours being inconsolably drunk. All in all a pretty good night, even with the vomiting I did.



>Poke'mon Master Trainer (or another classic board game by popular request)

It will be about 3 hours of classic board games. I want to start with Poke'mon and move onto other games as time allows. Hoping to run for 3 hours minimum.



I'll do my best to make it tonight since I missed the last couple weeks.



I'm working late today, so I'll see if I can join in late.



Small update, I'll be a few minutes late, but I'll be there.

>Red spends the rest of the game trying to get his legendaries back and Green spends it searching in futility for a Charizard to complete the set with his Charmander and Charmeleon

>Blue and his Snorlax take on Champion Bruno and his Machamp

>Blue becomes the new Pokémon League Champion and is inducted into the Hall of Fame

Truly, a rousing tale of perseverance and good sportsmanship.


So… will we be playing anything at the usual time tonight?

I'll be working late tonight, but I'll try and make it if someone hosts something tonight.



I'll be able to make it on time for Heroquest, but will be working until then myself.



I take it the game's going to be running late tonight?



HQ is tomorrow.



Well, that's what I get for reading too fast.


Sorry, but I'm gonna have to call of HeroQuest for tonight. Shit came up and I can't really get out of it.



Fair enough. Try again next week?



How many people are available right now? We could set something else up for the night.



Probably just me and you, though I'll certainly turn up to play if you'd like to run something.



I have just arrived. I am ready to do thing.



I'm down for a boardgame night, visit /tg/ on and off when I get a hankering for Tabletop, but board games are awesome too, gives me ideas of what to get for family game night too.


In the future, when we're in nothing-planned limbo like this, we should start suggesting games or just simply set up a server and get people in it ASAP.



Sounds like a plan. I look forward to you setting things up on my off weeks.



We've already discovered that my shitty laptop can't handle setting up a server, but I can certainly suggest some games next time something like this happens.


We had one successful evening of Kingdom Death, but I don't remember who hosted it. How does that Anon feel about continuing that campaign?


YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.


You would think that something with such detailed models would be made for longer games.



That was me. I don't mind, but it's either got to be later tonight, around 9:30 PDT, or sometime tomorrow.



Late today or late tomorrow, I'm down.



Someone else hosted it and I walked everyone through the rules/tutorial encounter.

Unfortunately, it turns out that the way I set up said tutorial encounter probably wound up breaking some of the table's scripting, so if we do start playing again we might need to migrate everything by hand over to a fresh table.



I moved the innovations, resources, settlement sheet and character sheets to a new table with the same mod. Dunno If I'm missing anything.



Also, might as well toss in a few things I found that could be fun to try:

>Arkham Horror (base game + expansions)


>Pokémon Deckbuilding Game (Gen 1 Kanto only, with separate versions for Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova and Kalos all made by the same creator)


>Riskopoly (supposedly fun, but time-consuming)


The Hyrule Fantasy (Japanese Legend of Zelda board game, translated into English)


Mega Man: The Board Game




I'd definitely like to try Hyrule Fantasy and Mega Man.



Yes, that should be everything. Tomorrow night for Kingdom Death, since its a bit late to fit in a full hunt + showdown + settlement phase tonight?


I'd be up for trying out either of those, too.


So what time should we start KDM today?



The usual 8pm PDT/11pm EST start time would work for me. Maybe push it back an hour since /v/'s doing their annual Uncommon Time stream this weekend.



I'm cool to host it then, but someone with a firmer grasp on the rules is gonna have to actually run the game.



I've got a good grasp on the rules, so I can help out there.



Alright, then. I'll start up the server in about 15 minutes then (7pm PDT/10pm EST) and if there aren't too enough people at first, we can start up again later.

As the Anon who generally runs the odd shit, I wanted to run something today, Friday, but my computer is having issues. I'm not sure if my computer is stable enough to host for several hours. If nothing more happens to me in the next week, I'll host next week.

In the interim, anyone have plans to host this weekend?



If I may, Up until quite recently, I was the curator of a thread on half-Chan known as the /fvgt/, or Friendly Virtual Gaming Thread, which had a very similar goal in mind.

The goal here isn't to make a set night, but rather give people the opportunity and resources to play games with each other. There's a load of sites and progrsms that, with coordination, I could set up matches or even tournaments with. Off the top of my head, there's Sun and Moon, and Jinteki.net, which are digital Lo5R and Android Netrunner sims, respectively. Additionally, there's Cockatrice, YGOpro, Xmage, and Forge for Yugioh and Magic.

There's also BB3D, a free, Windows-only version of Tabletop Simulator, which, with some work, can implement all the models available in Tabletop Sim's Library.

If you like, I can take over this thread and implement some systems and methods to increase interaction and gameplay on this board, make it a regular thread here.



I'd like to give HeroQuest another shot if no one minds.



I'd be up for Heroquest.



Let's give this another try. The write-up for last session is here >>323116

Sound off if you'd like to start earlier or later. We'll adjust the start time if enough people want to.



OP here. This was just an effort to get things rolling, but if you have a better method of organizing and facilitating play, I'd gladly let you throw your hat into the ring. Even if this just functions as a secondary gamefinder thread with a focus on digital card and board games, that works for me. The whole point is to get /tg/ together and playing more games.


I'm going to be away all night, so I won't be able to join in, unfortunately.



I'll definitely be able to make it. If it winds up just being two of us again tonight I'd like to either try playing through anyway or come up with another game to play as a backup plan, though.



Whens next Legendary session?



I'd also be up for that now that I've got a better idea of what to do.



Turing willing, next Friday. My computer had a minor emergency, but seems to be stable. If it continues to hold up until after the cosmos has seen fit to stop blotting out the sun over the #1 sovereignty, I'll commit to that date.



As always, we'll give it a few minutes for people to join and then get things going.

Greatsword too great, I suppose.


And tonight's game ends in success! No one died!



Elfis McDiesalot the Elf and Fred Rogers the Dwarf once again took their new drug-addled Barbarian and shady nameless Wizard companions into the Underworld this week, this time in pursuit of a gang or orc bandits, led by a Chaos Warrior named Grishnauz or something similar to that. His name doesn't really matter, because he's dead now, along with his men.

The party went into a treacherous underground labyrinth in search of three chests filled with treasure the bandits had stolen from Prince Magnus the Red. Before setting out, they equipped their Barbarian friend with a new, much larger two-handed sword, gave his old Broadsword to Mr. Rogers, and bought Elfis a shield to go with the helmet they had gotten on the previous adventure. As the most heavily-armored member of the party, the elf thus became the tank on this mission, while the Barbarian and Dwarf went around merrily carving their way through orcs and goblins. The Wizard, as wizards are wont to do, mostly hung back and conserved his spells, proving highly effective when and where he chose to spend his magic.

Elfis McDiesalot returned to town hanging his head in shame at his horrible failure to live up to the family name.

File: d3550b435cad2ea⋯.jpg (326.09 KB, 981x1185, 327:395, IMG_0188.JPG)

And that concludes this week's Marvel Legendary.

Thanos teamed up with Hydra and the Kree Star-Force to bomb Earth with Kree Nega-Bombs in order to sift through the shattered remains for the fabled Infinity Stones. Opposing him were the Guardians of the Galaxy, who were unable to save Earth, but did manage to at least get four of the eight Infinity Stones off of Earth and escape with them beyond Thanos' reach.

Good and Evil came to a draw today. And thus we end on a cliffhanger for the sequel.


Did ya'll play this on Tabletop Simulator? I would love to get down on some game nights with you. I'd also be willing to host Smash Up nights and explain the rules and stuff.



Yup, it's all been played on Tabletop Sim. Just step up to host sometime.



Yep, it was played on TTS. The scheduling and other details for the game were posted a little further up in the thread.

Talk a little more about Smash Up and why you think we might enjoy it.



Smash Up is a card game with a ton of expansions. It's a very fun game that is quick to learn but has a high skill cap.

The concept is that there are like 30+ factions now. You take two seperate factions, mash them together into a 40 card deck, and you play cards on "bases" that will blow up and score.

Who ever gets to 15 points ends the game, you tally up the points, and the person with the most VP wins. You lose VP from madness cards from the Obligatory Cthulu Expansion.

There are a lot of different mechanics that stack up on top of eachother constantly when you're mixing and matching expansions. It's a whole hell of a lot of fun and a favorite for me and my buddies IRL.


So, Friday's here again. Are we doing Saturday night HeroQuest this week, or should we start discussion on another game to play? >>329497 made Smash Up sound pretty interesting, so I wouldn't mind trying it either this week or next.



It's that time again. Last time, the party scaled the Black Mountains and entered the lair of Gulthor, a menacing Chaos Warrior. Their mission: retrieve three chests full of Prince Magnus the Red's gold. Our heroes were faced with hordes of goblins and orcs, but were not deterred. They cut down all who got in their way and found out Gulthor was not as fierce as he seemed when faced with the might of a magical genie summoned by the party's wizard. With chests and loot in tow, our heroes returned home victorious. Will their next adventure end as well as the last? That is for you to decide.

That time is best for me.



I'll be able to make it as well.



We'll let some time pass for people to join, then we'll start.


That's it for tonight. Hopefully we won't keep missing attacks next time.

Tonight on HeroQuest, the wizard Melar concocted a devious underground maze to test the might of our heroes. Things went reasonably well for the party at first, aside from having nowhere near as much luck with treasure draws as last time, but catastrophe soon struck when a careless step on the part of Elfis McDiesalot separated him from the rest of the party!

How will he fare, alone in the dark, on one hitpoint and having downed his last health potion while fending off a pair of deadly mummies? He's come quite far, the rest of the party is only one room away, yet the bones of a skeletal warrior rattle in the darkness as it stalks him, its blade eager to taste the blood of an elf. Will he survive? Tune in next time to find out!


Yeah, more damage dealt on the part of both the heroes and the monsters would certainly speed things along.



No one has claimed this weekend, so I will. Come join us as we continue on through Melar's Maze and kill shit.

I should be able to make it again for an 11pm start time.



You know the deal: some amount of time waiting for slots, then we start. Come kill some monsters with us.


And that's all for tonight. Join us next time for more adventures.

Picking up from where we last left off, Elfis McDiesalot was able to stave off death another day by staying just out of the skeleton's reach for another round. Breaking down the nearest door, the shady drug-addled Barbarian came charging in, only to immediately fall into a pit trap that the skeleton had been attempting to lure the wayward elf into. With the rest of the party following close behind, the skeletal warrior didn't last long, and Elfis was soon healed up close to full health.

From there, it was a short jaunt to a library hidden within the heart of the maze, and after dispatching the library's undead guardians, a quick search of its confines revealed the treasure the party had been sent to find: the legendary Talisman of Lore (pic related). The Barbarian was chosen to receive it, boosting his drug-addled faculties in hopes of rendering him more resistant to any mind control magic that the party might encounter on future adventures.

With their luck turning around, the party was also able to loot considerable amounts of treasure from the rest of the maze on their way out, and left the underworld with pockets much heavier than what they'd originally entered with.


I've been looking for people to play TTS with regularly for a while now and the answer was right here under my nose.

I'll try to join next saturday.



We usually just use the game's voice chat. We used that discord server just for that night because the voice chat TTS used at the time broke.



Make sure to check in on Friday as well, since we sometimes run games that day instead and usually at least have the info for that week's game posted up by then.

Speaking of this week, though, it might be a good idea to get a little ahead of the game and figure out what we want to play earlier than usual. One anon mentioned a game called Smash-Up! a few weeks ago that seemed like it could be fun, and I did find what looks to be a complete version of it with a decent setup on the workshop:


Plus, the rules themselves are available online:


I'd offer to try running it myself, but we've already found out that my shitty little laptop can't handle hosting games.



I don't mind hosting the server for you again, but it'd have to be on Saturday or Sunday.



Saturday works for me. I'll be sure to familiarize myself with the workings of that TTS setup, and the rules for the game itself should be easy to pick up.


Turns out I'm working the entire weekend now. I won't be able to host, sorry.



I can host something tonight, but I have to go to work right now. It'll be at 10pm Central (7.5 hours from now) and I have not checked out Smash-Up! at all. So, expect delays and that I might have to default to something I'm more familiar with.



That should still be about 11 pm EST, right? I should be able to make it, and I can still teach people how to play if you host Smash Up. If you'd rather run something you're more familiar with, I'd be happy to learn another game, too.



Smash-Up! is extremely simple, it takes less than 5 minutes to explain it to someone who has played any other card game before, less than 10 minutes to anyone who has played board games but not card games before, and not much more than that to someone who's just played more mainstream games. But I'd be happy to play most games, really.




Luckily, I got out an hour ahead of time. I've already read up on Smash-Up!, so we should be good to go. I'll post the server info at about 20 'til.



My shift ends about half an hour from now. I'll try and join if I'm too tired/late.


Server is LIVE.

>TTS Server - Friday Teej

>Password - EXCELSIOR


Match 1:

>Vampire Fairies


>Russian Soldiers riding Dinosaurs and Bears


>Killer Plant Superheroes

Winner: Dinosaur Bear Cavalry!



That was fun, I hadn't played Smash-up in a while and I only ever played with the base game.

Classic ending where I enabled someone else's victory while trying to stop the person who was ahead from winning. This kind of stuff seems to happen a lot in games with 3 players.

I'll try to be here again next week.



It was pretty enjoyable. It seems like the game gets a lot more hectic and fast-paced, the more players there are. We did a 1v1 match after you left and there were some definite lulls where neither of us could do much. There are also some factions that seem much better for 1v1 matches than for matches with larger numbers of players.

Match 2:

>Teddy Bear Cavalry


>Bear Cavalry Super Spies

Winner: Bear Cavalry Super Spies!


Do you accept complete newfags with no voice chat?



Sure. We've already got one person who doesn't use a mic.




I would recommend getting some kind of mic if you can help it, if only because most board and card games are played largely through conversation, and having to stop and type every single thing you're trying to do while everyone else is conversing normally makes things.. wonky.



I figure I should post this now instead of the day before. Last time, the party delved into the lair of a powerful wizard from ages past, named Melar. They came in search of a magic item which would enhance the wearer's understanding of magic, the Talisman of Lore. The party carved their way through through several undead and triggered many a trap until they finally made their way to the heart of Melar's maze, where the talisman lay. On a table. As a coaster. Not questioning this, the party made their way back home with loot in tow. Things ended well for the party this time, but will their next adventure be as successful? That is for you to decide.

I haven't played heroquest before, are you guys playing with the same group every time or can new people fill in the spots?



New people are more than welcome to fill slots. We run through with the same characters every week, but a character is more or less just a bundle of equipment, potions and gold, so feel free to rename and characterize which ever you play.



Like always, we'll give some time for slots to fill before starting.

And that's all for tonight.

On this week's exciting outing of HeroQuest:

>Grak, son of Ulag, the Orc Warlord, is studying hard at wizard college when he hears of his father's death back in >>321273

>After many long months of preparation, he manages to capture our heroes!


>It happened offscreen

>While Grak celebrates his victory over the party by doing a little partying of his own, Rogers the Dwarf uses a rat bone to pick the lock on the cell door and escape

>Searching for their confiscated gear, the party manage to beat an orc and a goblin to death with their bare hands before getting their weapons and armor back

>What follows from there could best be termed a bloodbath, as the bunch of college-aged orc and goblin and fimir hooligans that Grak had gathered together did battle with a party of seasoned adventurers

>Highlights include:

>A family-friendly torture room (fun for all ages!)

>The noble sport of goblin-stomping

>Fimirs appearing in the unlikeliest of places

>Copious usage of drugs potions

>Crashing Grak's party with no survivors

>Looting Grak's corpse to find out that the shimmering cloak he was wearing was an artifact called the Cloak of Wizardry

>Given to the party wizard afterwards, of course

>And, while raiding Grak's personal potion stash after his untimely demise, party member Elfis McDiesalot finally lives up to his family name

>The brief funeral service the party holds after dragging his corpse back to town is interrupted only by the arrival of his cousin, Aelf McDiesalot, who is quickly drafted into the party and given all of his deceased relative's equipment

>Also, he gets a weapon upgrade, trading in his cousin's old shortsword for a longsword

>How soon will it be before Aelf, too, meets a gruesome end?

>Find out – next quest!


So, time to figure out what we'll be playing again this week, correct? Anyone have any requests or suggestions?



There's still this list of board games we could try here >>327201 I also wouldn't mind playing RDI again if anyone feels like drinking this weekend.



It's been a little while since the last time we played Red Dragon Inn. If we can get at least three players for it, I'd be game.


Do any of you have 100% Orange Juice on Steam?



I do, but I think I might be the only other person here who has it. At least, I asked a while ago and no one else did.


Well, whatever we'll be playing, I'm guessing we'll probably figure it out tonight and then play it tomorrow night. I know that off the list in >>327201, I'm feeling particularly interested in Arkham Horror. If it helps, the rules for the base game are at https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/ffg_content/Arkham_Horror/AH_Rules_internat.pdf


I don't have it, but the asking price for it is pretty cheap. I'm not sure I'd want to buy it if we're just going to play it once or twice and then move on to other games, though.


So we playing anything tonight?



Probably not, from the looks of things.



What a shame.


So, since we didn’t manage to run anything last week, I’m thinking we should start trying to decide on something a little earlier this week. Anyone got anything they’d like to try out?



I always keep meaning to post game announcements on Wednesdays at the very least. I kinda want to try out that Mega Man board game or Hyrule Fantasy, but we can fall back on HeroQuest this week as well.



I’d be up for trying either of those options, too. We could pretty easily try one of them this week, do HeroQuest next week, and then try the other one the week after that, I think. Say, Mega Man this week, then Hyrule Fantasy after HeroQuest?



Works for me. Any volunteers for hosting?



I'll host something this week. I just need to be pointed to which mod to get. If we can't get that started, I have Mechs vs. Minions to pull out.

I really hope that we get a third regular host. I feel that if one of us stops hosting, for whatever reasoning, that this group will die off.


Some links for previously suggested mods is here >>327201

>I really hope that we get a third regular host

Just having more regular players would be nice, too. We could advertise on /games/ and hopefully at least one of them would stick around, but considering the state of that board, I'd be surprised if we even get one person.




My schedule would be perfect for hosting games if only I had a better computer, but I can’t really afford to get one at the moment.

Is >>328210 still around? Getting more people to play by getting more people playing games in general seems like a good option.




Anyone hosting with a piratefag copy? Iirc pirates can only connect if a pirate is hosting, and only by direct connecting to the game.

Though i fucked around with the game a long time ago so ill look up if something changed.



>Anyone hosting with a piratefag copy?

I don't think so. Can legit copies even connect to pirate copies?



Nope. At least not according to my experiences. Though i dled the newest pirate version so ill try to poke around, see if i can make it werk. I would host, but i really don't want to give out my public ip that lightly.




Sry for doubleposting but i misread your post. Legit CAN connect to pirate (i think) but not the other way 'round.



Ok im hosting because apparently it goes through a proxy server, lets see if it works.

If you can find it in server browser,

name's testg, password sikrit

Otherwise, direct connect to

port 40672

Ill be online for 20 or so minutes.



Trying to connect, but I keep getting an incorrect password error. You sure you typed it out correctly?



Ok recreated without password,

same ip, port 40052

Maybe theres a net config issue?






Incorrect pw for me. Though that might be because of the fucky piratefag version again.



Must be. I was able to connect with no problem.



Welp we gave it a go. Thanks for humoring me anons. I think the game won't work because of the usage of their servers. Maybe it would work if you direct connected to someone's private ip, but thats a bit too much. Have fun!

The rules for Mega Man the Board Game can be found at http://www.nevermorestudiosonline.com/files/MMBG-Rulebook-XS.pdf

The rules for The Hyrule Fantasy, on the other hand, aren't quite as conveniently hosted, so I'll see about attaching them to this post. If that doesn't work, the rules and scans of the board and game pieces can be downloaded from https://www.mediafire.com/folder/8gclwa3kgylai/Print_and_Play

I haven't had the time to closely familiarize myself with either set of rules, however.



Normally I would try to learn one of these games, but I'm not sure if I can even make it tonight. Familial obligations.



I managed to get out of work a lot earlier than usual tonight. I’ll get as well acquainted with the rules for The Hyrule Fantasy as I can before game night starts. I got the chance to look over them a little when I posted them up and they look fairly simple and straightforward.




Alright, I'm fairly confident I can teach people the rules to Hyrule Fantasy. It's a very straightforward game, and plays fairly quickly once you know the rules.


Server Live


Well, I was about to say that everything was going to be up in the air, but here we go.


That was a cute and cheap corporate tie-in! I enjoyed it!

That's it for the evening!


So… HeroQuest this Saturday, or should I start learning the rules to some other game tonight?



Ah, yeah, sorry. I'm good for HQ. I'll post the actual announcement later today.

I've been meaning to come by again to hang out, but my last few saturday game nights with friends have run long and have me getting home by midnight.



It's all good. Hopefully I'll start having Friday nights open again soon.


Well, I couldn't announce the server opening, but game night still happened. We had some more fun with Hyrule Fantasy this time instead of HQ.

It's a pretty fun little game, good for spending a few hours on with friends. And it's definitely something Legend of Zelda fans would enjoy.



Sorry that I couldn't join. I got home from work late, had posting go down, then had to take a nap. Glad you had an enjoyable evening anyway.

>the server is down now and I completely missed everything

Oh god fucking damn it. I fucked up.



I could start up the server again if you want. No one showed up earlier.



If nobody showed up earlier, I think we're probably not likely to get anybody else at this time tonight, unfortunately.

So, we playing anything this weekend?


Someone wants to play dead of winter on TTS?


I enjoyed playing and hosting up until a few weeks ago, but I'm not in a good place to be doing this and burnt out to boot. Thanks all.


Well, the thread is near bump limit and it's been dead for a good while. Understandably, the holiday season isn't great and the timeslot wasn't too good either (starting at 10-11pm for half the country), but I would like to see the game night continue at some point.



Maybe it'll pick up after the holidays. Winter semester is almost over for college students, so maybe there might be more people interested in playing once that ends as well. The thread needs more people hosting games to thrive, otherwise we only get late night games from the few who do host.



I think ultimately people are gonna have to put up or shut up when it comes to the games and times.

I wasn't a huge fan of the game or times but the people running it made a good effort to diversify both. Props to you for making a good effort.

Be the game you want to play and all of that.
