We were extremely busy in October. We are a small team and all of us have many different responsibilities at the same time. However, we do need to be more regular with our communication to our community – it is very important to hear from you and share with you our plans and activities.
We are therefore opening up the position of Tabletopia community manager. If you are interested in this role, please send me your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. The candidate should be a native english speaker, preferably with experience in Social Media Optimization. Good writing skill is essential. Initially it will be part time work with a possibility of full time later. Physical location doesn’t matter.
We’ve been very, very busy lately, but we are alright and Tabletopia is going smoothly.

Meanwhile, we are happy about our partners who have been creating new games. One of them – Scythe from Stonemaier Games is currently on Kickstarter recently and they have gathered more than $1.000.000 dollars so far! That’s an amazing result for amazing game!

‘Sword and Sorcery’ playable preview
We have also just launched a playable preview of Sword and Sorcery! This is a new game from Ares Games currently on Kickstarter. It is already funded, but you still have chance to back it. You can see a good example of the miniatures on Tabletopia.

An overview of new features for players and game designers
Following our development work this month, we’ve got several nice new features available to our users. Let’s check them out!
Custom 3D objects
The first eye-catching feature is the custom 3D objects. Our Kickstarter backers with Titan or Publisher pledge levels will automatically gain access to this feature. Custom 3D objects can drastically change the look of every board game. Look at these vivid miniatures we have created for Sword & Sorcery – Immortal Souls from Ares Games.

Hey everyone, we’re back with a new Tabletopia blog entry! In the last update, we were talking about digital lifehacks for board games, and now we’ll get into other actions which are much easier in digital format. And we will start with accessibility.
Tabletopia will be attending the upcoming GenCon 2015 in Indianapolis, Indiana. GenCon is one of the biggest board games event in the United States and we simply cannot miss it. We are already looking forward to meeting everyone at our booth (1452). If you stop by, you will have the chance to try Tabletopia yourself and get some exclusive early access promo-codes!
If you are interested in getting your game integrated into Tabletopia – come by the booth and meet our business development team. We can make a digital version of your game within a few days! This is a great opportunity for game designers who are planning to use Kickstarter as it allows people to see their game in digital form before it is released. We have recently done a great demo for Swords and Bagpipes and we can do the same for your project.
Also, we are still looking for US people who are able to help us on our booth during the event. The person will be on our booth during the show and be able to show our project to visitors, while the other staff will be out on the business meetings. If you are interested in helping out, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey everyone! We’re back with a new blog entry, and today we will tell you more about pros of board games going digital. Imagine a situation like this. You are sitting with your best friends around a huge wooden table playing your favorite board game. It is quiet, nobody bothers you and you have all the time in the world to enjoy each others company. Is this too idealistic for a real world? It is, and not even a single digital board game can provide that, but with Tabletopia we will do our best to deliver this kind of experience. Plus add a lot of cool things which are not possible in real world.
And to do that we will use all the advantages of digital format. Most importantly, it allows you to play where and when you want and invite your friends, find worthy opponents, show your new board game to potential publishers. The possibilities for matchmaking are endless. Secondly, you don’t have to be a millionaire or collector to try all the games you want. We will have thousands of games just a click away. Even those that are too expensive, not published yet or out of print. Is that all? Of course not: let us talk about advantages of digital format further.
