    Howdy everyone. Over on the Kendama Phillippines FB group we've been holding d'Sesh (digital session) meet-ups for a little while and it has been pretty fun. Figured I'd put something here so that any interested could post their contact handles for Skype, Google Hangouts, Instagram, or whatever group video chat works for you. We've had good luck with Skype and Google Hangouts but have heard that IG works for some.

    I've created a Skype account specifically for d'Sesh jams so that it doesn't interfere with my business & personal accounts. This is a public board so any contact info you put here can be seen by spiders/SPAMMERs/other malcontents. Perhaps it's an idea that might also work for you. My Skype contact is: live:.cid.2c330f1ef6c5295 Also my time zone is JST (Japan Standard Time) Here's a world time page to help set up meeting times.

    A few things that seem to help are wireless headsets, fully charged batteries, well lit locations, low ambient noise, close proximity to wi-fi transmitter (good signal). It's also been suggested that, gasp, vertical video might be of benefit to those with space restrictions. Also bring LOTS of patience. There will be dropouts, players will come and go, and other weirdness. Just chill and it'll all be good.

    One of the things we've been playing is "Follow." seems to be simple enough and expandable to have a fair number of players. Also the better players can always "de-tune" to let new players participate and still have fun.

    Update: Here's some shots from one of our d'Sesh jams.
