dont let the name fool you. despite the ongoing trend of intentionally faulty "simulation" games, this one is true to its name.

when you buy this game, you own one of the most substantial simulators on the steam store. if you enjoy casual board games, or simply want to goof around without leaving behind an actual mess, this is the game to get.

one of the most shining features of this game has to be the workshop. this game, by default, comes with most of your standard non-copyrighted games. however, with the help of the steam workshop, you can easily fill up your library with all of your favorite childhood games. from magic: the gathering to chutes and ladders, tabletop simulator has it all.

my advice is to play the game with friends, or people you trust. consider yourself warned that your 2 hour monopoly game can easily go airborne by the simple click of a button. oftentimes, the "table flip" feature can mark a fun way to conclude a fair game of chess. it can also easily be abused by a more deceitful individual. luckily, you can edit the settings of the current server to make it essentially grief-proof, provided you are the owner of the current server.

all in all, this game provides endless hours of entertainment. whether your intention is to construct a sandbox of your favorite game characters and send them clattering into a dark abyss, or play a jigsaw game with the face of your pet cat, you cant go wrong with tabletop simulator.

So I've been eyeing this game for a while before I bought it and let's just say I'm so glad I got it while it was on sale. Not because it wasn't worth the price oh no no! Because of humble bundle I was able to donate to a good cause AND get an amazing game that's worth way more than what they're charging to be honest.

A good thing to keep in mind is this game is like a box of 100 games. Many of which I've been able to play over and over with the fun increasing over time rather than dying down like old games. If you're bored of a game or would rather play something else, just select a new board game, take a little time to learn it and boom!

Pros:
  • Replayability is unrivaled
  • HUGE variety
  • Most part decent community
  • Active community
  • VERY modable!


Cons:

There's only 3 cons for me and I'd rather explain them then list them:

Playing during off hours: Playing TTS while the USA is asleep is a little more difficult to have players join your game. I've noticed the community goes down 2/3s during the late/really early hours of the night but if you have a 2-3 player game that's decently popular, it's not really a big deal.

Playing a board game you want to play: Now this is kind of a small issue since everybody has different game style tastes. As for me, wanting to play long strategy and war games, unless you have friends, it's a bit hard to find people that: 1. won't leave mid way 2. won't quit while you're explaining.

You always haft to go into a game expecting people don't know how to play which bugs me but hey, you get around it.

The ADD stricken kids or small part of the community: There's a good chance you'll run into the younger audience which is fine in some cases, hell, I've ran into a 13 year old more mannered than a 21 year old here. HOWEVER, you'll run into some who will fidget with pieces, rush things, and even flip the table before they leave. (All good though as you're able to rewind gameplay GOD BLESS) It's just annoying at times but like I said, this doesn't happen that often.

Also, some people either will join and sit there trying to mess with your players or try to ruin the board by throwing pieces. Simply just kick them and everything will be fine! Like I said, there's a rewind function AND a blacklist so you can keep people off your servers :)


All in all, this game is REALLY amazing and is awesome if you have a group of friends or you're bored and need something new to play.

Entered a server expecting to play Eels and Escalators, ended up being held at gunpoint while playing Chinese Checkers and listening to the USSR National Anthem. Shrek was also standing, watching, in the corner.

10/10 would be held at gunpoint for our Soviet motherland again.

One of the best investments I've ever made in video games and in gaming as a whole.

If you like boardgames, this simulation program is for you.
The Steam Community itself has made this game/program worth over 100 times more than it's retail value. Look through the Steam Workshop and see all the premium and popluar games to use for free in Tabletop Simulator. The Steam Community has donated its time, thoughts, and ideas in bringing to us, to each other, the best boardgames and tabletop games in this virtual experience. With this we can virtually own and playtest these games.

THANK YOU to Tabletop Simulator and the Steam Community for helping me and my friends save thousands of dollars in boardgames.

If you really like a game in the Tabletop Simulator Steam Workshop, please support the actual developers of the game itself by buying an actual physical copy for yourself... or 1 copy for your gaming group... to show your love for that game. We have personally bought games that we felt were more than worthy to physically own (Dead of Winter, Epic Spell Wars, Munchkin, Star Trek Panic, Pandemic Cthulhu, etc).

A very fun game, great for playing cards or puzzles with friends who live inconveniently far away. It takes a little bit to get used to the interface but not too long. Mixes well with steam voice chat.

A game where you have multiple gamemodes to play with but only servers have them usually things like this happens

1. you join a server first time right?

2. people question are you new to this gamemode

3. you say yes or no

4. if yes: KICK or they will be nice and teach you about it

5. if no: play the game right then

other things like chat in the lobby is nice to talk about things but game related things not outside world things

and thats pretty much it

God this is amazing. Even if the app started sort of like a joke it has and still is steadily evolving into a serious platform for all your boardgame needs. There's still some clumsy things like handling multiple objects at a time, you will definitely need to skim the documentation to learn some control stuff (doubly so if you want to get into the really advanced things) but with a solid foundation and the hard work of hundreds of modders there is no better way to have an incredible collection of boardgames right there in one place.

True, at the moment each mod is incredibly vulnerable to being abandoned and lose assets as their web hosting fails but with any luck you will still find (or be able to make, even) versions of whatever game you might want to play. There's very little automation so rule keeping still falls square onto the player's hands in the vast majority of cases, for better or worse. Legality of each mod is a complicated thing, the community is not enormous so it can be a bit complicated finding new players for the more obscure games... but still, even with all the blemishes and all the fact is that there's nothing quite like Tabletop Sim out there.

At least not yet.

Tabletop may seem like just old classic board games but think again. You can do anything you want like knock pieces over while playing with a friend. Google something on the inside game computer. No wonder this game made it to VR gaming.

Totally regret purchasing this game. The app itself is very poorly designed and most definitely not worth the $20 pricetag. The graphics are poor, the mechanics are awkward and cumbersome, and it's very difficult to use. If you're looking to play some good board games, check out board game arena.

Tabletop Simulator is exactly that. A simulation of all kinds of table tops.

I love board games and tabletop wargaming but sadly, the people I normally play with live all over the country and we only get to play games once or twice a year.

But now, Tabletop Simulator lets us get together online, put on our headsets and boardgame or wargame to our hearts content.

The program itself has some basic games and some more complex paid for ones, but it’s the modding community where the game really shines. Modders have faithfully digitally recreated hundreds of classic board games and wargames and has also allowed creative people to make their own games for people to play.

The game can never replace the atmosphere of playing at a real table with your friends around you, hanging out, eating snacks and socialising. But it does have a couple of advantages. Thanks to it being in a digital world and the best modders using scripting, setup takes mere moments and if it’s getting late, simply save and load up later! No need to pack everything into its box (the point at which most people suddenly leave the room in real life).

Something that does worry me is copyright. I’m not sure how it all works but I do worry that companies may take down some of the recreated games. This hasn’t happened however, despite the game being around for some time now.
A lot of the games require a rulebook which is not provided (meaning one of you needs to actually own a real copy) but many games come complete with Pdf. style rules in the game. I’m slightly torn on this as I feel that having to buy one of the many games that companies have created in the real world is the right thing to do, as the creators put in a lot of creative effort to make them for us, but like every person I love a good freebie!

Legalities of copyright aside Tabletop Simulator is a great program with many great games available.

If you love playing board games then Tabletop is a must!
