can you watch games in progress?

while youre waiting for a game you ought to be able to watch other games in the tournament.

any chance?

this i think will be hard to implement. There is to much margin for cheating. Your friend watchs you play and tells you what the other guy is doing via the phone and you all know it would happen sooner or later

Easy. Do it on a 3 turn delay.

It's not like those three turns that the guys aren't playing will spoil the ending. You already know who will win a game in the final few turns.

OR

Show only units where both side can see each other.

So if both players can see the unit then those watching can, otherwise no.


Also for Private would like a switch to turn off FoW and have watchers for teaching sessions.

This is implemented in an other game (I won't write here the name), but it does not work very well: you can see that "something is coming" when a strange hex becomes visible. Also, problem with revealing possible position of camouflaged units.

BUT

There should be an "Allow spectators" check box which would resolve the problem> you simply turn off spectators if you want to compete, and allow in friendly matches.

I like this idea
