    I'll probably have time for a game in a bit if you're still on.

    The all great Clarissmus just showed me how to!

    You can right click on a player's name, and choose synchronize.

    Then you can see the game as they do, and observe.Quite nice.

    Also make sure you hit the little button with a board on it in the top left(?) corner. took me a little to figure that out.

    Just found this out so thought I'd mention it. When playing FK, and you need to find a specific card in your discard pile, there is a quicker way to do it than simply pulling out each card until you find what you need.

    Right click on your discard pile and choose draw specific cards. You can choose from a list which cards you want to draw they'll be on the top of your discard pile for you.

    One more note. When playing Spy, the cards were not put back on top of the Draw Pile. Keep them on the board and pick them up off the board instead of the draw pile.

    Okay, I added some FAQ to the first post. If there are any other unanswered questions or useful tips & tricks let us know so we can include them.

    You might want to also suggest that people observer one game before trying to play. It really helped me see who the games flows online.

    It all came together after that for me.

    I just played my first game with this, and the tutorial helped a lot. One problem I found though was that it wouldn't accept right-clicking with this computer, a MacBook Pro. I don't know what the problem is, but on a MBP you have to Ctrl + Click to right-click. Maybe that has something to do with it?

    As a result, Killercactus had to do all the wound markers for me, and I had trouble with some other commands.

    I run on a mac and Command + Click brings up those options for me. Haven't had a problem yet.
