It’s a problem that our gaming group is about to have: One of our better, more fun players is about to GTT (Gone To Texas, for those of you not up on 19th Century slang.) We want to keep him in the game. Solution: Facetime. Both he and I use Apples, and will be on wifi connections, so why not use my iPad to throw the Facetime screen on the television, use the iPad camera so he can see us, and play long distance?

We’re going to do a test run this week to see if the camera has the field of vision to show the whole room for him.

Has anyone else run games via Google Hangout, Skype, or Facetime? I’m interested to see how it’s working out.
