It varies and has not happened as of recent. Happens more over holidays....we did a lot the last week or two of December when most people are home more and not as out and about and busy. Most of the skype players are in the US so at most spread we have Kells over in Seattle and one or two in mountain time and most of us are in Eastern time.Then the few randoms...Jesse used to play some, so he's +5 from me. Gojoe is +16 from me so at nights when I'm on are mornings when he's on. Sorta. You'd be surprised. And when he works night shift we can chat during the day because we work the same hours.

Yeah, I've said before I'm up for it if I happen to be around at the right times.

And yes, the time zone thing can be a problem - for example, taking a random selection, I'm from the UK, AngrySquirrel is from somewhere in northern europe (Denmark? Norway? I can't believe I don't remember that), lanicita and Brook are from the eastern US, Kellsbells is from Seattle, Gojoe is from NZ and maj is Australian.

If you really want to you can coordinate people over those timezones though, you can do it - I play in a NFL Fantasy Football league with some guys from another forum and we had a live draft last week. 14 players including one from New Zealand and 4 from Europe. I think we did it late-afternoon in the States, which was evening in Europe and early morning in NZ. You can shift that later to be late-night in Europe, evening in the States and early afternoon in NZ, which is more typical for us on IRC, I think.

Yes az001 is a crazy canadian!

Oh really? I always throught there were webcams involved. Which I do not possess. But I actually do have a microphone now. Huh. I admit it, all I know about skype is from when I've seen people use it on the Oprah show >_> <_< Yes I am a hermit. And my mother watches Oprah.

I'd have to know when it'd be beforehand ('cause I've got a couple classes to deal with late at night and my poor little old laptop isn't great at handling anything more complex than Youtube), but if I can show up, I'm happy to give it a whirl. ^^ Another UTC-5, but my hours are... irregular... anyway

Skype doesn't allow for group webcaming, only group calls.
