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 v4.0 In game Tablet, Saved objects folders, & Connection Improvements!

As always, we’ve got some exciting stuff for you guys. Most importantly, we are bringing the ultimate sandbox tool into Tabletop Simulator this patch... the internet. Yep, you can now browse the web, watch YouTube videos, listen to music, create/edit character sheets, and all kinds of things within Tabletop Simulator’s own little Tablet. Please note that the Tablet is currently in Alpha.

We also added the much requested saved objects folders and worked really hard to get connection issues working properly.

We’re also in the process of migrating our new website, so you may encounter some downtime while we get it all squared away. In the meantime, you can see our brand new logo for Berserk Games, which will now be shown in game.

Update v3.9 New Configuration Menu & addition of the Deck Builder!

If you haven’t noticed yet, the launcher is now gone when you start up Tabletop Simulator. That’s because there is a new configuration menu in-game. So you no longer need to exit to make any changes. Additionally, we have now included Andrew’s Deck Builder into Tabletop Simulator to make creating your decks that much easier.

And just in time, we have the latest Tutorial Video featuring Custom Content. If you want to learn how to use the Deck Builder, then please watch this video as it will take you through the steps.

Why didn't anyone think of this before? Seriously, did the human race really miss this one until now? I doubt it, but it's the first I've heard.

You can make your own tabletop games.
You can play other peoples games.
You can play any card game. There are dice. There are 3D objects.

YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN TABLETOP GAMES!!!!!

And then you can play them with your friends.

Why am I writting this? I gotta go/make/play.

This simulator has so much potential, that a single review on steam could not even scathe the surface of depth that it contains within it's walls of creativity and customization. Do you enjoy the luxury of having every single board game, card game, dice game, and pen and paper game laid before you in an easy to use, ever growing plethora of a database? Do you ever find yourself in a dire situation in which you can not contain the hatred and fury of the rage inside of you which burns like the flames of one thousand suns and lays waste to all who oppose you in such a mood? Then this game is right up your ally! At any given time, you can flip the table and watch your game pieces fall into the void of nothingness with the physics unmatched by any "game" sold commercially or otherwise. You will be left in awe when you come to the sudden realization that the game that lies before you could change the way you look at video games, and life in general, forever. Did I mention the deep and vast multiplayer expierence? Duuuude... it's like, soooo deep. 8 players. Yeah... it's like that. The host also has the ability to lock items or the table itself to prevent those less capable of abstract thought to flip the table in the middle of your session. I think it should be manditory for this game to be in everyone's collection. Just like Obamacare.

Early Access Review
I'm glad there is a game like this. It crams all board games into one very well delivered package. What is great is it allows the user to interact with the game as they (just about almost) would in real life. The integration of Steam Workshop really is icing on the cake, as you can just go on and download a huge range of board games people have reworked into the game, like Magic the Gathering, Takenoko, Carcassone, Forbidden Island. The game however is more of a sandbox where you can tamper with anyone's cards, destroy someone's tokens, steal someone's dice and FLIPPING THE GOD FORSAKEN TABLE IN A FIT OF UNCONTROLLABLE RAGE WHEN A LITTLE WHINEY KID PUTS YOU IN CHECKMATE.
It starts you off with checkers, cards, chinese checkers and all the bog-standard tabletop necessities before you soon migrate to the Workshop. It includes singleplayer (for literally just solitaire) and the multiplayer which surprisingly doesnt require having to port forward. You can just slap a name on your new server, slam some assets down on a table and await the arrival of some players (hopefully ones of which won't exploit the table flipping mechanic CONSTANTLY, which is the reason 80% of servers are password locked :P) and just have some fun. It also lets you use voice chat and normal text chat to talk to victims of your newly thought up next level plays.
As a conclusion, it saves you a helluva lot of money on board games in one big digital package which is a huge WIN in itself.

Putting Jeremy kyle's mangled face onto a deck of cards and fly them around a table, while creating a team of heavys to move from square to square in snakes and ladders (played backwards, up the snakes we go) while also creating stacks of chips to form a lightsaber to wish wash around the poker table to show my dominance. and kick the table into oblivion (Multiple times) as been my life long dream.

Amazing - you can get some friends from far away places together and play a tabletop game, almost as if you were in the same room together. I probably wouldn't want to play with random people, but you can do that too.

Infinitely expandable, since it's easy to create/recreate almost any card game or board game, and the workshop is already full of many popular games that you can grab and play without any trouble.

Early Access Review
Do not discount this game as a simple board game sim; Believe me when I say it has surprised me time and time again.

Tabletop Simulator is a fantastic party game, the ideal solution to anyone who has ever wanted be able to play that one board game with all of their distant friends, or even those nearby without the ridiculous mess that usually goes into them.

This game comes with a standard pack of classical tabletop games, such as Checkers, Chess, Mahjongg, and even some RPG tools in case you want to play old-school miniatures. That, however, is not where this game shines. Its true worth is the fact that Workshop Integration and an active modding community allows you to play almost any tabletop game imaginable, from Cards against Humanity to Pokemon Master Trainer to Munchkin to Liar's Dice to Sellswords to Triple Triad. Given time, almost any game, no matter how obscure or how niche, will find its way to the Workshop and therefore be playable for you and up to eight friends.

PROS:
-a large amount of agency is afforded to players in order to provide an optimal game experience
-an almost limitless library of modules is available via the workshop, giving access to hundreds of distinct games
-a tutorial explains most of the obscure commands and keys fairly effectively

CONS:
-some functions that one might expect aren't available (no way to import backgrounds independent of game-types, some kind of inventory functions for players for items other than cards, etc.)

Ultimately, the game is absolutely worth it if you and yours have ever wanted to play a particular tabletop game without all the hassle of having to be cluttered around a messy game board or table. I absolutely recommend this game and its various workshop modules.

Play the custom D&D map, you spend hours maybe days working on.
Maybe play a simple game of Chess with a friend.
Gamble away all the poker chips in the world.

Ooooorrrr...
Download a framed Hulk Hogan picture, and draw a masterpiece, with a friend.
Play Chess, and make up all the rules as you go along.
Spawn in a bunch of Custom Figures, and upload Anime girl pictures to them. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Spawn a ton of marbles, and filp the table.
Or just flick/throw everything and watch them fly.

In summary: Is game is amazing, and as long as you have a couple friends to goof around with, you can play anyway you want, and not get yelled at, or brake something. 69/420 - would b8 again
