Note: This Early Access game may or may not change significantly over the course of development. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you may want to wait until the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We’re releasing in Early Access because our initial goal was to release in April (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!”

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 [2 MORE GAMES HAVE BEEN ADDED!]
Mod Support (3D Models) [THIS HAS BEEN ADDED!]
RPG Kit (30 animated figurines, Dungeon Tileset, Character Sheets) [MOST OF THIS HAS BEEN ADDED!]
Steam Workshop Support [THIS HAS BEEN ADDED!]
CastAR Support
Oculus Rift 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!”

Update v2.5 Overall improvements & general fixes.

August 22nd, 2014

Surprise! We said we wouldn’t have a patch this week, but we had time to get one out anyways! But for sure, there won’t be any patches the next couple of weeks because of PAX Prime.

If you will be at PAX, be sure to stop by our booth. We’ll be in the tabletop section of the Indie MEGABOOTH!



We also received our Oculus Rift kit, so after PAX, we're going to be working on that!




Improvements/Changes:
  • Cut, Copy, and Paste is now working for promoted players.
  • Toggle zoom now works on locked objects just like a surface.
  • Greatly optimized code calls between scripts.
  • Optimized raycast checks for things like pointer position, grabbing objects, etc.
  • All file saving actions notify in chat the save location on your computer.
  • Added name protection when saving objects to the chest to avoid issues (alphanumeric and spaces only).
  • Copy then pasting an object will now immediately snap to grid, greatly speeding up setup.
  • Added a FPS cap of your monitors refresh rate to limit power consumption.
  • Better download completion tracking if objects are deleted when they are loading.
  • Decks now deal from whatever is on top even when flipped over, allowing you to deal from the bottom of the deck.



Workshop:
  • Rewrote the workshop downloading code to be faster and less prone to errors.
  • The issues with downloading many mods at once is now resolved with a queueing system.

Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed issue with the material selection not working for custom models if a image was not supplied.
  • Box selection will no longer have issues selecting when being used from certain camera angles.
  • Color tint now properly saves for custom objects.
  • Late joining players will properly see color tints for custom objects.
  • Voice chat will no longer activate when typing.
  • Fixed Load Game window using the Saved Objects window.
  • Fixed issue with saved chest item button being cut off the top.

Update v2.4 - Spawn custom objects, chat overhaul, & improvements

August 15th, 2014

We’ve got an exciting update this week as you can now spawn individual custom objects from the Chest menu, Workshop mods, and save files. In addition, the chat has been overhauled to the new UI, making it much easier to read. And of course all kinds of other fun things and fixes.

There won’t be any updates for the next few weeks as we prepare for and will be in Seattle for Pax Prime, so hope this will tide you over until the next update sometime in September. We’ll post info on our booth next week!



Chat Overhaul:
  • Chat has been overhauled with the new UI system
  • Chat window can be resized to your liking
  • Names are now only colored while the message is white
  • Chat overhaul finally fixes the Linux type through bug in chat
  • Mousing over chat and scroll wheeling will scroll the chat
  • Overall the chat should be much more readable and controllable than previous
Custom Decks:
  • Better memory cleanup for loading deleted decks from a save/mod
  • Duplicate card images for faces or backs will no longer use up extra ram
  • Overall memory usage should be lower and load speeds should be faster
Spawning Individual Objects:
  • Objects can now be saved to your chest menu and loaded again at any time
  • You can now spawn individual objects from a Workshop mod or save file without loading the entire save
  • Pressing the downward arrow on the button that normally loads the save will expand a list of all the custom assets in that save
  • Each custom object in the file will be listed with duplicates hidden
  • The objects can be spawned by pressing the button or dragging the button into the game world to spawn at that position
    (Only works with single decks - merged decks will not work)



Dice:
  • Color tinting now works properly for all non metal dice, the numbers/pips no longer color
  • Dice normal map improvements, so reading dice is easier
User Interface:
  • Grid menu no longer forgets its values when opening, closing, or loading a mod
  • Fixed desync issues with values currently in effect and what is shown on the GUI (Host Options, Turns, Grid)
  • Promoted player changes are now reflected properly on the Hosts GUI and no longer shows old values
  • Host Options settings are now saved between games, helping to save time when setting up your games
  • Added black outline around the white text on the main menu to help with readability
Keybind Changes:
  • Cut, Copy, and Paste now require CTRL + (X, C, V)
  • Voice chat push-to-talk has been changed to 'C'
  • Fixed ‘Flip’ command to no longer toggle zoom
    (As always you can change your hotkeys in the launcher)
Box Selection:
  • Improved accuracy of box selection, especially at steep angles
  • CTRL + Box Selection does invert and adding selection
  • CTRL + Left Mouse/Grab does selection toggle on a single object
  • Overall selecting multiple objects should work just like your OS with file manipulation
Improvements/Changes:
  • Joining a game through a Steam friend while the game is closed will launch the game and connect you to the server
  • Loot bag now auto flips up when grabbed
  • Toggle zoom now zooms a percent amount instead of a fixed amount, this will help when playing on larger tables
  • Custom Models no longer require a picture/texture due to color tinting
  • Lowered the tolerance for cards sticking together to reduce card clumps
  • Host and promoted players can now flip table even if it's disabled in host options
Bug Fixes:
  • Added a check for corrupted Workshop files, which will cause them to be re-downloaded
  • Fixed offset movement not working with stack objects like poker chips and cards
  • Fixed incorrect lock status for Custom Models on clients
  • Game rules will now properly sync between host and client when loading for the first time
  • Custom Table will now properly load custom images if its already in use
  • Fixed issue with search not working properly if you had scrolled at all
  • Round d6 dice will no longer have a metal and plastic toggle in the right click menu
  • Fixed custom collider disappearing bug when deleting objects with the same collider
  • Fixed bug with measure tool resetting if you left click during measuring
  • Fixed hold voice toggle being unchecked incorrectly even if enabled
  • Fixed desync for loading mods from the Workshop list

Should you pick this up. #3 reasons for 3 different types of people

online boardgame players-love to play your games but want a little bit more flexiblity as if you really were there, browser games of chess and other IPs are great but lack the player control to do what you want.

Tabletop Roleplayers-whether it be D&D, GURPS, or some other rule system, these games are hard to put to put into the digital world and if so the software is generally only for you to watch and let the DM move everything, and you can actually build 3d dungeons ( https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bi5dkk6CIAAwhGt.png:large )

Social players-its great to be able to chat over a game, specially when you really dont care about the outcome of the game, in normal games you are forced to make moves till the game is over, in this if you just want to sit with your coffee using the voice chat while you throw marbles and the rpg kit pieces you are free to while at the same time laughing at how bad of an aim you have.

overall this is a great tool if you want to just play in a sandbox and do what you want, there is a single player mode that you can spawn anything in or take it to the online side for fun with friends, this actually bridges the gap for some of my friends some that like shooting games, some that dont but everyone can sit around a boardgame and have some fun.

Tabletop Simulator is ideal for all players who are even slightly interested in board games. With a focus on physics sandbox gameplay where you are free to abide by the rules or cheat, playing with friends feels fun and satisfying.

The game is still in beta and I've encountered a few bugs while playing. However, the developpers are really close to the community and listen to feedback. The bugs are being fixed every update and while it's still far from a finished product, it is shaping up really fast.

Pros:
-Physics Sandbox. This is a must for sandbox games lovers.
-Revives the old board games we love and allows you to play online with friends.
-Table flipping. Who wouldn't dream of flipping a table after losing a game of chess?
-Great platform for custom board games. While it doesn't support workshop content or 3d models yet, importing images allows you to create your own games or play games you love that weren't included with the purchase.
-Great looking models and shaders.

Cons:
-Needs some polishing, currently has noticeable bugs and can be ressource heavy at times.
-Does not include liscenced games (obviously, but unfortunate. Although, once again, custom content).
-Not as fun without friends to play with. While you can play with strangers and still have a lot of fun (I get headaches from laughing too much playing games with strangers), not everyone will enjoy it as much as playing with people they know. I would recommend grabbing the game with friends if you can.
