I have a macbook.  I'd like to play online.  What are the options, if any, for online play using a mac?  I've heard of (and tried to use) Lackey, OCTGN, and tabletop simulator and I've watched youtube videos of people playing over skype.  Are there people playing SW:LCG on these or other platforms?  I'm not especially tech savvy, also.

 

Thanks!

Skype, Lackey and OCTGN are the three big ones.

 

Skype's the biggest one and there's a Facebook group that has like 100+ people on it. Not too many posts from people on it nowadays but if you ask around there will probably be someone who will play a game. All that requires a webcam and a way to rig in so it points down in a birds eye view; everybody's got their own way of doing it (I just string my webcam through a multi-joint lamp). 

 

Lackey's really easy to use but the card pool hasn't been updated in a while and there's barely anyone on it. OCTGN had a dedicated playerbase and I think the card pool has been updated but I've never used it because I never tried to figure out how to actually use the client.

In general, I think you'll have more success posting when you're looking for a game than you will creating a game and waiting for someone to join. It's been a while since I've played on OCTGN (which unfortunately isn't Mac compatible), but when I did, I got most of my games by messaging people while I was at work asking if they'd like to play in the evening.

I also use a macbook. I have a stand for my USB webcam so I can get an overhead angle on the cards, but you can easily jerry-rig something.
