Tabletop Simulator on Steam

Post by Smakx on Sat Jan 17, 2015 4:48 pm


Tabletop Simulator is a physics sandbox available on Steam designed around playing card and board games. More of a game creation application than a game itself, it features an editor and integration with the Steam Workshop. As of the time of this posting, there are 1,805 items that have been contributed to the workshop for this game by its community.

The majority of the items available in the game's workshop are recreations of real card and board games, using the art and assets from the actual games. While the simulator provides the table, physics engine, and accommodates common game piece manipulation (shuffling, card dealing, card flipping, rolling dice, etc...), it is left to the players to run the rules of the game, just as it would be in a real life setting. In game chat is available to help facilitate rules communication but using voice chat is of course the preferred method. The player hosting the game also has moderation tools that allow undo's to fix mistaken moves and rage board flips Smile.

In addition to facilitating the recreation of actual card and board games, the editor can be used to design or prototype new games, profile kickstarter projects, or serve as a shared space for playing traditional pen and paper rpgs online and other collaborative projects.

The game is currently in early access on Steam, but as mentioned above already has an active community and many workshop items are available. Tabletop Simulator can be purchased for PC, Mac and Linux, features single player and cross-platform multiplayer, and is currently priced at $14.99 (for all 3 platforms via SteamPlay).

Once you get started, you might want some help finding people to play with. These Steam groups are community run online gaming clubs that can help you find, play and learn awesome games. Join the group (or "follow" it) then join the group chat and meet some ombres:
