Kickstarter Spotlight: Tabletopia is giving tabletop games a digital makeover

Kickstarter campaign, Tabletopia is a platform for board games to be played digitally; with people all around the world.

There’s a new Kickstarter campaign that’s in the spotlight, and this one is called Tabletopia. It’s solely designed to bring tabletop games into the digital age. With over 900 backers and still 25 days to go, Tabletopia has doubled its pledge goal with this promising game.

The idea behind Tabletopia is to bring people together from all over the world through online board games that are replicas of the physical editions. With the aid of PC/Mac, iOS, and Android, anyone, anywhere can play.

Features of Tabletopia

The developers behind Tabletopia came up with the idea after thinking about how there’s Kindle for books and iTunes for music, but no digital platform for the old-school tabletop games that people grew up with. Tabletopia is designed to support over 78,000 board games, along with a workshop for people to build their own games. 

When players are getting ready to adventure into a board game, Tabletopia has a matchmaking system for public and private games, along with reputation status for players. Since there isn’t an AI in Tabletopia, the rules aren’t enforced – so gamers must know about the board game they’re partaking in, and play responsibly. 

There will be timers in the games, along with counters for keeping track of points, and even custom options such as wallpapers, sound effects, and camera control during gameplay.

Heading to Steam?

Tabletopia is in the process of getting approved in Steam’s Greenlight program. I know a ton of tabletop gamers who would love a platform like this to bring their hobbies to life – as long as it gets approved and does the board games justice. 

What do you think of Tabletopia? What kinds of board games would you like to see in their roster? What is your favorite board game? Let me know in the comments!
