Playing remotely

Hi there,

New to the game. My brother and I have been playing games over webcam using conferencing software. This approach works best when each player has their own decks / cards, as shared deck mechanics are the hardest thing to deal with when playing this way (without an online ‘deck’). Would it be reasonable to each use a separate deck to draw from when playing, or would doing this upset the balance of the game?

Thanks,
D

I’ve done it, and it worked fine. I don’t think it particularly affected the overall game to have potential duplication of the same card being played, but we don’t play especially strictly. If you were really concerned, you could print off a list of the cards and mark them as being used as you play, but I don’t see much benefit and having that information to hand might even unbalance the game.

Why aren’t you using online software and playing?
