  6. Our LGS has setup an online store!
    1. Let’s summarize what virtualEDH.com is, and some of the cool features
      1. Person who’s turn it is is Highlighted! (anyone can use spacebar to change who’s turn it is)
      2. There’s a single button to click that flips your video around so it looks right-side up!
      3. Infect counter
      4. Lifetotal tracker
      5. Can add your commander and it shows up as hoverable under your life total
      6. Turn timer
      7. Best Feature: You can click on a card in play and it will pull it up (and retains a history of cards you’ve searched for this way). IMO this feature is 100% worth trying this site out
      1. How many people, and how long have you been working on it
      2. What are some enhancements that you have planned?
      3. Also, we noticed no voice, and I believe this was intentional, is that something we might see in the future?
        1. Specifically a way for someone to use their phone to display their boardstate, and another computer to join the game as a spectator to see everyone else's board?
      4. Any plans for mobile?
    2. Some questions for Adam and Jon
    3. Place for questions from Chat 
  7. Main Topic - VirtualEDH.com
    1. Rethank Adam and Jon. Remind the folks where they can checkout your stuff, social media, patreon, etc.
