Check out the scheduled events and let us know which games you want to learn and play with our hosts next time.
New Features and Improvements
- Players who bought Steam Early Access or made a Game Addict or Game Scout pledges now can invite any players outside Tabletopia or Tabletopia users with free accounts to play premium games.
- The Beta version of Tabletopia for Chrome and Edge browsers will be available within a couple of weeks! Right now the platform only runs on IE, Firefox, and Safari browsers due to Unity plugin support limitations.
- Download speed for game bundles was increased.
- When going from Steam version to browser version, the system prompts you to log in using your Steam account.
- “Game finished” notification is displayed when the game is over, if no game end mode is specified.
- Fixed issue with duplication of random elements in a group in Workshop.
- No available rooms are displayed in Find & Play for a player who went AFK and then returned online.
- Critical errors in decks of cards: incorrect position of the last card or its disappearance in some cases.
- Wrong cursor behaviour when connecting several devices, such as a mouse, a gamepad/joystick or a touchpad.
