I see there's an online section on the WOTR page but after clicking the links its not very clear and is confusing.

Can you play WOTR online? Is it free? I have a friend I want to play with that lives a state away and we rarely get to play games in person.

Thanks arrrh

I'm not sure which page you are referring to, but go here to get a link to a free Java client:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AtLN1dNc0SyedEx...

Note that both players should own the game to use the client.

Not for a least a few months, was there something in particular you are waiting for?

There is no need to, but you could always set them up and do them as well. It's something I keep meaning to try but never got around to doing.

No, online play normally goes too fast for that, which is one of its attractions.

But after a few plays you'll find the virtual board just as clear as the physical one on the table. For me it's clearer even, nowadays I miss things easier on the actual board, because there is so much space.

You can also check things much easier, like what tiles are in the hunt pool, what units are left in the force pool, and how many and what type of cards your opponent has in hand.

As Uthoroc says, most players online go much faster then board play. However, if you state that you will be doing this and will be playing a slower game, I am sure some players will be happy to play against you.
