The Crusaders bring on friend of the podcast Chuck Cumbow to talk about how he is working with TLG to bring C&C and other SIEGE engine games online. During these crazy times of Corona Virus, playing face to face is hard for most of us, and having the option to host your games virtually might be just what the doctor ordered. Chuck talks us through some of the available virtual table tops, how to join games, Twitch, Discord, and much more.
