      Learn to Play the MLP CCG with Trixie! (and Twilight too...)

      For those unaware, THERE'S A MY LITTLE PONY CARD GAME! And if you're like me, you love cards but always seem to have a hard time finding people to play with. Well do I have good news for you! With a program called OCTGN (Octagon) you can play online with friends! So the next issue is actually learning how to play, and there's where I, the Great and Powerful Trixie (... with some help from [MENTION=2]Twilight Sparkle[/MENTION]...), come in!

      We will be teaching new players all about the game this Friday (5/16) at 7PM EST! Skype will be necessary as it's the easiest way to communicate all the things that need to be communicated, but you can also read up on the official rules
      here. (These are the updated rules for the first expansion "Canterlot Nights," so not everything will be relevant for this event, but the release is right around the corner!)

      You can find me on Skype by looking up "patchyfan."

      To get started all you need to do is download OCTGN and the image files in Twilight's very helpful thread.

      If you have any issues getting OCTGN to work, feel free to message either myself or Twilight. If you'd like to try playing sooner, I'm always up for a game!

      You can read up on some of the features and updates for MLP on OCTGN here. You can also find a useful list of hotkeys and the like, but I will list a few of the ones I find to be the most useful here.

      F12 - Setup your side of the table at the start of the game. Automatically sets your Mane Character, draws 6 cards for your hand, and prompts you to choose your starting Problem.

      Tab - Move phases in your turn. You will draw and gain action tokens automatically on the first phase, and it will prompt you for most things that activate at the beginning of other phases.

      F10 - Flip the top card of your deck for a Faceoff.

      ALT + C - Move cards used in a Faceoff to the bottom of your deck.

      F9 - Flip over a card. Used to Frighten Friends and turn your Mane character to "Boosted" when conditions are met.

      CTRL + 1 - Add a counter to card your cursor is hovering over. Useful to mark when the Bonus Points have been won from a Problem.

      Shift + Click - Target the card your cursor is hovering over. Drag the cursor from one card to another to create a targeting arrow.

      Double Click a card - Exhaust/Ready.

      Still never got my Octagon set up right

      Edit: After 2 weeks of initially doing it with Twi's help, I finally verified my account. I'll see you guys on it.
