    Does anyone have a webcam and want to try playing pokemon with them?

    I just got one today and was just thinking of ways to use it.

    Biggest problem with this is that you can have a broken deck, stack your deck, and cheat in so many ways =/

    yeah but still you can ask for a 6 pile shuffle / watch them split and shuffle their deck

    why would someone cheat while playtesting?

    As long as you stick to an honor system, you should be fine. You can hold up your deck as you shuffle it so you can watch each other do it, and try and keep each other's entire playing field visible to each other. I used to play with friends of mine over instant messages. It took a lot of typing and you definitely have to keep your honesty, but it certainly is possible.

    I don't think you need to worry about cheating... not sure why someone would even want to.

    Sounds like an interesting idea. Only problem is you need the actual cards or good enough looking proxies. I think Redshark would still be better for playing.

    But webcam battles would be sweet in the future when the internet is faster for smoother and higher definition video streams. Not sure how well it would work out now :confused:.

    Well I just got one and ive been testing it out and i think it looks fine you can clearly tell what cards are witch. And you can have voice enabled so you can talk to your opponent just like a real match no typeing necessary!

    I would just like to try this out with anyone who's willing to give it a shot just pm me or lmk

    This program might put to rest any suspicions of cheating/stacking/etc.

    Hope this was helpful.
