Lets just say I've figured out a way to get my miniatures into a program on the internet. I can move them around as I like either singularly or in groups as I define myself. I can give control of what ever of my miniatures I like to someone else logged into my game. They can log in and play free of charge and only need to be running firefox or chrome. Actually internet explorer will work with a free download.
It is in real time, we can talk and even see each other. You don't have to leave your house. It is quick and I think simple to use.
There is a tape measure.
There are dice.
Who wants a game? (Well a test game, there are bound to be teething problems.)
