Neilkaz:"Maybe the future of our game is to go completely computerized. Both players connect their laptops to a network with a server just like GG for example. The players still sit facing each other but there are two monitors back to back (one for each player). Now there are no disputes about what was rolled, no fast rolling, no mistakes as to how long the match is, no disputes about someone cubing at Crawford, no concerns about dice cheating or poor shaking and rolling, no cocked dice or dice on the floor, no illegal moves or disputes about such...etc etc etc. " Amazing! I (and probably many others) had a similar idea, even discussed it with fellow club members on Monday, Nov. 25! Probably the future is not that far away. Today a good BG board is easily ~$600.00, a mini laptop- about the half.On top of that-no need for streaming (cost), no need for transcriptions, immediate availability, storage on server etc..There are some points to consider: disabling the pip count, incorporating a clock( or use of external one), spare WI-FI routers , but all small things compared to what would have been accomplished.
