Today, Plasticity Studios announces the launch of Tabletop Playground, the first highly-moddable board game sandbox for players to release on the Epic Games Store and Microsoft Store.


Tabletop Playground is a UGC-focused tabletop gaming sandbox for Windows and VR. Using JavaScript, creators can bring to life their own concepts for board games and play alone or with up to sixteen players simultaneously online. Then, they can upload their creations to mod.io, and players regardless of platform can then download and play the same experience. Over 800 games have already been shared.

"Using Unreal Engine, our aim with Tabletop Playground is to provide players with a board game experience that gets as close as you can to the real deal of playing in-person with friends. With the inclusion of cross-platform multiplayer with full UGC support, it's exciting to be able to release the first digital tabletop game that works seamlessly across multiple storefronts." said Robert Pröpper, game creator and founder of Plasticity Studios.

Since the Steam launch in 2020, frequent post-launch support for Tabletop Playground has seen the introduction of many hotly requested features, creating specialised functionality for both widespread and niche board games to be explored in full. Continual updates will ensure Tabletop Playground's relevance in the scene, regardless of platform, for the future.

Tabletop Playground Features

  • Play alone or with up to 16 players online
  • Realistic physics ensure each move and dice role is satisfying and fun
  • Gorgeous 3D environments for immersive and more epic game sessions
  • Accessible controls with VR support for Meta Rift, Index & HTC
  • In-game editor and JavaScript support gives creators unrivalled flexibility
  • Cross platform mod support using mod.io with 800 games already available
  • In-depth support for miniatures, wargaming and niche genres

I tried this game with my friend.I found milebournes A game i used to love playing years ago. Sadly there was no way to install the game.We tried everything we tried using the importer program that came with the game but nothing worked it showed the game but when we tried to play it the mod said it didnt have a start field so at that point i had to start laughing it was just so horrible! My friend started to cry saying we got ripped off! We both agreed to spend at least a few hours trying to get it to work. We started reading how to get the game installed But it looked to me that unless your a computer tech with basic programming knowlege in i think it said lua I wouldnt bother because your not going to be making any games or downloading any mods that work What you will be doing is you will spend all day doing what we did! It's pretty sad somebody really dropped the ball on this one!But before i could convince him to try one more time after 6 hours he grabbed the keyboard and uninstalled the game. We went and got a real deck of cards on a real table with a few beers without us having to try and figure out computer programming language A really horrible day turned into a fun card game.This is something that i'm going to remember for a very long time

I'm sorry that you've had difficulties playing the game. When a mod doesn't have a start state that means the mod author hasn't provided a save state with where thigns are on a table. You can still play the mode by starting with an empty table and adding the objects from the mod directly.
You also don't need any programming knowledge to play or create your own games. For example, you can find a tutorial on how to create a basic game here: Tabletop-playground.com

But what's going to entice me to get this rather than play tabletop simulator? There are so many of these games trying to do Tabletop Sim, if you want to succeed do something they don't, find what they're lacking.

Hi richtofen115, thanks for your comment! I created Tabletop Playground because I wanted a way to remotely play tabletop games with my friends. I started back in 2014 when Unreal Engine 4 became available and continued to work on it while similar games emerged: Tabletop Playground offers more realistic graphics, it has a strong focus on enabling anyone to easily create their own content using the in-game Editor, and it includes unique features such as color schemes or movement history. I hope this quick overview answers your question. More information is coming over the next months on tabletop-playground.com!
