Naw….I'm going to place 2x 3ft by 4ft boards on the living room floor!

i bought a new table at Habitat for Humanity for $18 - folds out and it 26 inches high - helps with the back since I do not have to sit all of the time. For my regular table I have bought risers - the two should match up nicely.

We are hoping to get a foursome to play the two big scenarios later in the year.

I've only got a 6' folding table, I'll have to build a top to fit over it, since the original table's not quite wide enough anyway.
A good summer project! :)

Yeah I have an 8' table and I built an overlay like you suggest but only big enough for RB! I have to build another mating one now and butt them together. Until I build the ultimate table someday... way off in the future...

Master of the e-TOC you are...some of us operate only in the Old World TOC.
You seem to enjoy being a dinosaur, so I don’t begrudge it. ;)

Honestly, if I had local opponents, I’d love playing with counters, but I would still reserve CGs for VASL for not keeping set up reasons.

How do you setup multiple monitors for VASL? One for the board and others for the charts and rules?
When I played on a laptop, and used an additional monitor, that is how I set it up.

Spencer, how do you get your boards displayed on your TV. I have a 55 inch Samsung OLED TV.

I use the pocket ASLRB and rat charts. Despite my poking at Herr Doctor Hershey, I don't use technology just because. I find using the map and counters online and the scenario, rules and charts in paper works best for me. The "third monitor" is just because I have two I use for video gaming but they're extra-wide which is actually lousy for VASL.

My version is typically, map and chat on one monitor, e-RB and/or scenario PDF on the other. I suppose I could move the chat to the second monitor to have more space for the map, it should work fine. (I also play with the Rat Pocket Charts clost to hand, and the pocket rulebook, but an electronic version has easy searching)

Would you post a pic of VASL on your 55 inch screen?

You’re wondering if it gets pixelated? It does , a bit, especially if you zoom (I misremembered it’s a 50 BTW, a 5) would exacerbate that). I don’t use it for small scenarios, usually for things where a single screen makes me lose track of LOSs. I’ll try to get a pic the next time I have a big scenario on there.
