What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We’re releasing in Early Access because our initial goal was to release in April 2014 (with a lot less features that you are seeing now). But due to the overwhelming response and support from our Kickstarter backers and reaching over 1200% of our goal, we wanted to add a lot more content and features so we can bring you the best game possible! We’re still releasing in April, just in Early Access instead and with a lot more features implemented than we initially planned, and with a lot more still to come. Hop on for the ride!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We will be working on the game until both us and the community feels confident in the feature set presented, but that won't be the end of the game's development either! We have released nearly a patch a week since our Kickstarter ended, so we are fully dedicated to the success of the game.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Unlocked Stretch Goals:
3 Additional Game Modes [ALL GAME MODES HAVE BEEN ADDED!]
Mod Support (3D Models) [THIS HAS BEEN ADDED!]
RPG Kit (25 animated figurines, Dungeon Tilesets & Misc props) [THIS HAS BEEN ADDED!]
Steam Workshop Support [THIS HAS BEEN ADDED!]
Oculus Rift & CastAR Support
Customizable Figurines
Space Theme
and tons more!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Tabletop Simulator has all the fundamental features of the game ready for you to play. With over 15 games to choose from and the sandbox nature of the game, you are set to play hundreds of different games. In addition, you can create your own mods and upload them directly to Steam Workshop. The only limitation is of your imagination.

Tons of new content is still to come and your support will help make the game grow even more. Different features are subject to change and your feedback will help shape the direction we take the game for the better!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will increase when the game leaves early access so be sure to pick it up to save some dosh!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We love our community and are proud that we take our community seriously! With the updates almost every week since our Kickstarter ended, we've taken a lot of the suggestions and feedback they have given us and implemented them into the game! So it's very important to give us your feedback, so we can make Tabletop Simulator the best it can be!”

Early Access Review
First I'll take you back to the mid Seventies where all I did was play tabletop games.

Once Payday rolled around (every Friday) my friends knew where to find me. I would hit the Book Store, then my local hobby store to look over, and see what new has been added. I was, and still am a hugh fan of any Avalon Hill games, and normally after chatting with the rest of the folks in the store I would be heading home to unbox my new tabletop game. I would spend countless hours playing, editing, and creating my own scenarios, and I have to say those days are my most memorable of all in my life.

.... Years pass, and as always you gradually pull away from these things because life is just like that. Work, Bills, Family, and so on just do not allow you to carry on like you use too.

... A few years later I start having a few more moments allowed me, and I would have these small flashs of memories from years ago when I use to love Tabletop games, and how much I enjoyed them. I drove down to where my old hobby store was only to find out the store was torn down, and in it's place is a uni-sex hair salon, and I have to say I was really sadden by it.

... A few more years pass and then I see the PC arrives, and I buy in at a whopping $1900.00 Plus for my Tandy 1000SL, and I dumped another $800.00 plus dollars for a 10 meg Harddrive, and started to purchase a few games such as Mechwarrior, well you know the deal.

... Fast Forward to middle 2014, and into 2015.

After playing years, and years of the same old thing which would be First Person Shooters, Survival Games, 2D side scrollers, and the like I got extremely bored, and began to see how all of these games seem to look alike, how they all pretty much played the same, and I began to understand that they are pretty much not what I want anymore in my life.

Once again my thoughts gradually went back to when I loved Tabletop gaming, and how just simply holding a game manual, looking at the box, setting up the board, reading the manual to make sure I have things right made my life in gaming an absolute joy.

So, I began to search for a way to get back into table top gaming, and I came across lackeyCCG which really I didn't like all that much because you were dependent on hoping the modder didn't mess up with the download links, so I decided on Vassal which I found fantastic since you only had to download one .vmod file, and you had everything you need in one package.

Well after tinkering with Vassal which I think is great still didn't fulfill my desire to hold the pieces, Vassal made me feel like I was just playing another computer game which I really was trying to get away from.

... A couple of Months later I came across Tabletop Simulator, and after watching a few Videos I thought this just might be it.

I just recently purchased Tabletop Simulator, and downloaded a few Tabletop Conversions such as "Mage Knight", and "Eldritch Horror", as soon as I started up Tabeltop Simulator, and I was able to manipulate the pieces, dig through the decks, and empty out the bags, and pour over the contents of the cards I knew from that second on that I was finally back to where I first started. Finally I found what I have been looking for.

Now mind you nothing can take the place of opening that box, picking up the gaming manual, seperating the pieces from the holders, but Tabletop Simulator is pretty darn close.

Thank You devs, I am so appreciative for what you have brought to the gaming industry, finally I can settle back into what I enjoyed so much back in my early days.

Final: Because of Tabletop Simulator, I am going to Mail Order Mage Knight, and Eldritch Horror (that will take some time, I'm not that rich), and it's because of the developers of Tabletop Simulator which made it all possible.

MOST IMPORTANT: A Very Big Thank You goes out to all of the Modders who worked tirelessly creating these excellent Conversions so we can play once again!

Thanks for bringing me back Devs, and Modders to a world I thought I would never be able to return too.

This is one of the absolute best purchases I've ever made on Steam. Its an infinite collection of board games. See a game you haven't played in forever? Try it. Want to know if that game you want to buy is any good? Try it. Have an urge to have a lazy conversation with your gf/wife but want to do something? Load it up, try it out. Feeling down? Join a server and proceed to have shenangins with people.

The only criticism I have for this game isn't even because of the game itself (the developers are fantastic and are as I type are updating the features of the simulator). Its the community. Some people enter lobbies and ruin games. Not with all that much frequency, mind you, but enough so that most people now lock their servers. A handful of open (and legitimate) servers are still around, but its like 5% - 10% of the servers listed. So if your planning on playing without a real life friend or two..... I'd still say get the game (seriously its fantastic), but don't expect to play anything but popular card games.

A Steam Must-buy, especially if you have real life friends who also have the game. 10/10 Monopoly Boards.

It is so awesome to be able to play board games with friends that live far away. Some of the games in the Workshop cost hundreds of dollars IRL, and to be able to play them for free is just great.

I highly recommend this game!

Have you ever bought a board or card game, only to never have the requisite number of players around at the same time? I know I have. What an awesome thing it would be if I could take that game and play it over the internet with my friends, without having to schedule it with everyone a month ahead of time. Enter Tabletop Simulator by Berserk Games. It’s not the first piece of software that has sought to fill this niche, but it is my favorite by far.

Here’s the deal – Tabletop Simulator isn’t a game in and of itself. As the name implies, it simply simulates a tabletop. That is, the board, pieces, dice, cards, etc. are all physics objects in an engine designed to be manipulated in the same manner you would if you were playing a game on your living room table. There are no mechanisms in place for rule enforcement. If you want to cheat, and the other players don’t stop you, the game will happily let you. The game comes with the objects you need to play several classic games like chess, checkers, marbles, pachisi, backgammon, and many others. There are dice and figurines suitable for various pen and paper role playing games. Standard decks of cards for any number of games. Blocks for building sets. And much more.

But the biggest draw of all is the game’s modding potential and the community around it. There are already hundreds of games people have modded in. Everything from Risk and Clue, to Galaxy Truckers and Munchkin. The quality of the mods varies somewhat, but there is no shortage of great mods to choose from. This of course begs the question of the legality of these mods. Since it’s all user generated content, the developers are free of culpability. The creators of a few mods have been hit with DMCA takedown notices, but this seems to be a rare occurrence. Some game makers encourage the mods, or even create them themselves. Most seem to be content to simply ignore them, and it makes sense why. These games are meant to by played in person, and are difficult or impossible to play online. The mods, on the other hand, are played exclusively online, so there is no overlap. If anything, the additional exposure has probably garnered additional sales.

Tabletop Simulator is an Early Access title, but it already feels very polished, though not perfectly so. In the 32 hours I’ve played it, I’ve experienced two crashes. Many people have had issues with getting network connectivity to work, including myself. I finally solved my problems by setting a static outbound NAT for the game, but many consumer routers don’t allow that level of manipulation. In my opinion, the technical difficulties have not made me regret the purchase in the least.

All in all, Tabletop Simulator is a fantastic program, and I’m excited to see where the developers take it in the future.

As kids back in the day, Most of us used to play Tabletop games, but growing up in a world filled with advance technology changed that for most of us. Now we have jobs, smartphones, tablets, computers, lots of videogames, Social Media sites, and have little time to even consider whipping out an old board game. This game changes that, allowing you to play any board game in an open world sandbox with people from all over the world. You can even make your own games and play them with friends. This game is worth more than its asking price, because the devs put their heart and soul into this game. They always listen on the forums and update this game almost every week, unlike some other greedy developers I know. It's something fresh and new that almost never gets old compared to all the zombie and FPS games out there. They even have a workshop filled with thousands of player made games and steam cards and achievements. You must buy this game even if you wouldn’t even play it much, because it will eventually become an addiction.

This is my first Review. I started playing this game on Friday and put 28 hours into it by Sunday morning. This software is a simple yet amazing concept. Board game lovers everywhere should purchase Tabletop Simulator. There are over 2000 mods in the workshop that replicate some of your favorite games. Anyone can create or import their own boardgames. The community so far seems amazing. I've encountered only 2 or 3 "trolls". I used the term "trolls" loosely because a couple of them were just children being children. The host options let you rewind, kick, ban etc so that they have very little influence on the rest of the game. I highly recommend this game. I have already purchased another copy for my guest account so I can let my friends try it out and play with me.

So far, the only gripe that I have with this game is that when you have active searches on stacks of cards and you absolutely need to undo something, the deck you are searching ends up clipping into the table, rendering the object intangible. I know not if this is an issue that can be fixed, though the preservation of decks when undoing actions would be really nice to see.

In regards for suggesting features, I would like to see the implementation of books (perhaps imported from documents on your hard drive?), though one might question the feasibility of such an implementation because at the end of the day, Tabletop Simulator is really just a physics sandbox with a few features to help simulate card, tabletop, and/or board games and I understand if the pages of said books would prove far too taxing on the game's physics engine.

Other than that one gripe and suggestion I have, I have yet to notice any jarring issues besides the one above so yes, I can safely recommend this game as it does what it does really frickin' well.

An interesting concept for a game - Tabletop Simulator offers players any tabletop game experience imaginable.

From trading card games to chess, the games we've enjoyed before videogames are now available in a single release. Workshop support now offers players the ability to make their own games and easily create custom content, and it will be interesting to see what the game will have to offer once it is out of Early Access.

Give it a try, and if you need someone to play it with don't hesitate to add me!

Very realistic representation of tabletop games, I recommend this game to anyone who enjoys their board games and or card games. The mods in the steam workshop give this game a lot of variety and replayability as well as the tools for anyone to create their own games.

For anyone thinking about buying this game I can honestly tell you that this has been one of the most enjoyable purchases I have made on steam. The workshop mods alone make this game well worth the price. I started first looking through the steam workshop and found that any tabletop game I could think of was there and ready to play. Which is great because it is rare I have all my game playing friends anywhere near my tabletop collection. So its nice to be able to roll some virtual dice and play some board games online.
The gameplay can be a bit awkward sometimes (kind of depends on the game) but use the hotkeys for functions like, lock down game piece, or zoom in on card, can really help speed up game play and keep you from knocking pieces all over the board. If you do manage to destroy your board or someone gets mad and flips the table, you can simply undo step and the board has been reset to the last play before desaster struck. Another thing you might wonder about is hiding your cards so other players cannot see them. There is an area over your "seat" that you can place cards without others seeing, however if you need a larger area simply use the fog of war tool and your cards are safe from other players view.
In the time I have played Tabletop Simulator I have purchased a few tabletop games that I wouldn't have otherwise, due to the cost of some tabletop game titles. Being able to try them out with expansions and get a feel for the game really made the difference for me and I then had no problems sinking the money into the real thing. The game is constantly growing with more from the workshop and polish from the developers. Once again this is well worth the investment and has endless reply value.
