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!”

Update v4.6 Spectator ALT Zoom & Team Voice Chat Added!

Everyone has wanted the ability for spectators to ALT Zoom, so they can easily see what’s going on when they are just watching others play! Another feature that was wanted for quite some time is being able to drop 1 item at a time while holding a bunch of items. Both of these features have now been added for overall better game play!

Proxy Server Improvements:
  • All hosts now connect to the proxy server by default (players will only connect through the proxy if they fail to connect normally).
  • Auto option for the proxy server chooses the closest proxy server to you for the lowest ping.
  • This should eliminate all connection issues, if you run into any let us know.



Rules Menu Improved:
  • Rules menu now supports BBCode for all your formatting needs.
  • You cannot accidentally edit the rules now, because you must first hit the edit button.
  • Only admins can edit the rules of a game now.
  • Updated the default games rules formatted with BBCode for better readability.



Alt Zoom Improvements:
  • Alt zoom now works in spectator (finally!).
  • Notecards can now be alt zoomed for easier readability.

Drop Last Grabbed Added:
  • 'Alt' + 'Right Click/Tap' now drops the last object you picked up instead of all objects except the first.
  • This is great for games in which you need to drop singular objects, or if you want an easy way to distribute held objects one at a time.

General Improvements:
  • Team voice chat has been added if you want to secretly communicate by using the 'V' key.
  • Optimized box selection when there are a lot of objects on screen.
  • General optimizations to reduce fps stuttering.
  • The keybind help menu has been updated with the latest additions (Grouping, Team Text Chat, Team Voice).

Fixes:
  • Fixed error loading certain save files that had joints with deleted components.
  • Reduced the amount the notecard text clips through the backs of a flipped notecard.

Early Access Review
In this day and age of multiplayer video games, whether it be by playing Smash Brothers with friends in the same room or Call of Duty through online co-op, tabletop games have become a thing of the past. Hardly anyone plays them these days, allowing the cardboard games to collect dust in the closet or remain unwanted on the shelves of Target.

Tabletop Simulator helps you remember the fun that those board games gave you as a child. With a seemingly endless amount of games to select, your fun is only limited by the power of your computer and the availability of your friends. I do not joke when I say that there is at least one game on here for everyone. Uno, Scrabble, Monopoly, Sorry!, Cards Against Humanity, and even a game about Cthulhu are all here. There is no limit to the amount of games, and even then, you can always use the game to lay out a table for a game of your creation!

However, this game does have one major problem. It's rather buggy at times, and the lag is a massive pain to deal with at times. There were times I played this game and I wanted to quit because I couldn't move my pieces the way I wanted to. It was a mess to deal with and it's easy to drive you up the wall. I realize that this is mostly because the game is early access, but I do hope they fix that soon.

But really, I would give this game a try. Find some friends and play some board games together. It will help you remember the days before we relied on handhelds and consoles for gaming entertainment. And really, is there anything better than taking a trip down memory lane sometimes?

Watching illicit material with friends while stealing from them in monopoly never got easier! Maybe this is why I don't have friends IRL...

Played Chess a fun game of chess with a friend. Afterwards watched the Shia Lebeouf Video on the ipad mini in game. Worth Every Cent.

In all seriousness, this is a great simulator for playing all your favourite board/card/pen and paper rpg games with friends.

The steam workshop is LOADED with a ton of content ranging from classic games not included in the 'vanilla' 'game', as well as many custom games designed by other players.

I strongly recommend you try this. Get your friends involved too! The more players the better!
