I got this game to play D&D with friends. What i found out was that you can play just about any game that can be played on a table, from The Game of Life to HeroQuest, just about anything you can think of. In addition, there are always pick up games and people on every day from all over the world. In short, this game has endless replay value. I can see myself playing on this more than any game I own.

This basically is exactly what the name implies... it provides a virtual area where you can play all types of board games on a flat surface. With nigh-infinite replayability due to anyone being able to port any game in existence or in the realms of imagination-land into the simulator this is somewhat of a good value if you like playing table games with friends*.

*Friends not included.

WARNING: If you are thinking of buying this make sure you understand THIS IS NOT A GAME, it is a tool for playing board games. I have seen some people in discussions who are frustrated because they didn't know what they were buying.

So What Is It?: TTS is a platform for playing board games. There are no AI or rules coded into the game, just like a real table and board game you can pick up your playing pieces and do whatever you want with them. If you pick up your chess pawn and move it all the way across the board in one move, or try to balance it on top of another piece, or throw it off the table, the game won't care (the other player might).

The Games: It comes included with some classic games such as chess, checkers, backgammon, jigsaw (add your own picture, pick no. of pieces etc) but the main meat of the game is the workshop. It's reasonably easy to add your own custom cards or dice, tokens and boards, and if you can do 3d modelling you can make more complicated things too.

The result is that there are thousands of mods on the workshop to download, some of them are there with the blessing of or created by the creator of the board game version (there are also a handful of paid DLC games), a few may be prototypes being tested by games designers before they consider making physical versions or homebrewed games created just for TTS, some are not everything you need for a game but may be additional pieces to use in another board game or for use in RPGs (like D&D). The vast majority though are versions of physical boardgames, and these are something of a grey area, legally, as the copyright holders have generally not given permission for them to be uploaded. Some may not know about TTS or may find it easier to turn a blind eye, a few have allowed their products in the hopes that the mods may drive sales of the physical games, and some, like Munchkin, seem to be regularly taken down only to be uploaded again by someone else.

Opponents: There are a number of gameplay options, single player is used for solitaire games, setting up tables before taking the save multiplayer or uploading as a workshop mod. Or just loading up a multiplayer game and loading all the pieces yourself if you want,whatever floats your boat. Multiplayer has options to host a server, browse current servers, direct connection or hotseat (its better to use the proper hotseat mode than single player for hot seat games as you can then each have your own hands of cards, turn counter etc). There is also a global IRC channel which is (optionally) shown in game as well as text and voice communication. Generally public games are pretty good, there are a few trolls but the mods are good at banning them from global and the host of a game can kick them from games easily if needed. You can of course password protect your game so only those you want to join can. How easy it is to find a public game of what you want to play really depends on what game it is. There seem to always be games of secret hitler for example but if you want a game of Heroquest you might have to offer to teach people in the global channel or arrange a meet up through forums or steam friends.

Overall: I really recommend TTS as long as you realise what you are buying is a an extremely flexible sandbox playing environment not a traditional computer game.

Great pickup, sale or not. Includes classic games not only pre-loaded, but also from the Steam Workshop.

Settlers of Catan, Monopoly, Battleship, and UNO are great pickups from the Workshop.

Also, table flipping.
