Frequently Asked Questions
Does the lifetime virtual room give me access to premium games in that room forever even if I don't continue the gold subscription? Does it also allow me to invite non-gold subscribers to premium games for the lifetime of the virtual room?
The Virtual gaming room is designed for gold subscribers and it gives you:
- management of access to the room – like giving keys to your friends
- customization of the game client (look and feel)
- and most important – you can invite your friends who are not premium subscribers to play any premium game with you (The important bit here is “with you” You cannot just give everybody the keys and allow them to play without you, you need to be one of the players)
As a Gold member, you will get ONE virtual room. Although it is not possible to play two games simultaneously in the room, if the game is long, you can “save” it and finish later. To play two games simultaneously with some other friends (without premium access), the second room can be very helpful. In other words – the KS additional gaming room will not give you premium access for life but it can still be useful.
If you are silver level, your KS virtual room will give you the possibility to also play with people who do not have premium access!Last updated:
I would like to have both playing premium games and creating my own. Why there is no combine package?
Pledges (and later subscriptions) for game creators and players are separate - one does not automatically include the same features from the other; they are very different in terms of functions and services from our side. However, early access for any membership will allow you to try Tabletopia from both perspectives - players and creators.
Also, you can choose one reward from the gaming tier and one from the designer tier, backing any of them adding the amount from the other. During the survey after KS, we will figure out what is your intention.Last updated:
The interface will be translated into all popular languages (right now it is in English and German). For the games themselves, it depends on the materials which we get from the publishers - many games in our catalog are language independent, others are now in English, but later we will ask publishers to send us graphic files for all languages which they have… it is possible to create a game setup in any language.Last updated:
Tabletopia is based on the Unity Technologies platform, which does not officially support WebPlayer for Linux. During porting Tabletopia to Steam, we are aiming primarily for Windows and MacOS, and then Linux afterwards.Last updated:
We suggest for now, to use Skype or TeamSpeak. We are planning to integrate our own voice chat at the beginning of next year.Last updated:
The difference with TableTop Simulator is as follows:
- All games on Tabletopia are legally received from Publishers - we have a modern and transparent business model - it is a platform for the whole board games market and gaming community;
- Tabletopia is more than just a virtual table - there are other parts to it, like player matching service, reputation and ratings, a workshop with many game objects, tools for publishers etc.;
- Tabletopia is a cross platform system - browser based, client based (Steam), iOS and Android.
Usability and aesthetics are a subjective issue. If you are a TableTop Simulator user, you can try out our demos on the KS page, compare, and then decide yourself which is better for you - we have had very positive feedback so far.Last updated:
Yes! If the game has “open information”, you do not need any special functions. For example, you can play now our “single seat demo” of Terra Mystica with your friend sitting near you. But for games where you need to hide your hand etc. you need advanced turn control, the ability to change seats in one click, timers, and so on
Advanced Hot Seat mode (available for gold members) allows you to do it.Last updated:
