Just wondering if anyone else has tried Tabletop Simulator yet? I've had a regular gaming night with my buddies for years until real life added some extra miles between us making it infeasible.

As a result we now use TS as the replacement it's pretty slick plus it has an immense library of game templates to play with.

Not tried it yet myself, but I know it's used for Cards of Humanity and I'm very interested int rying it out for this as soon as I get a chance :)

Hehe Cards against Humanity is an awesome game - not played it on Tabletop Sim but can imagine it working well with voice chat and a few beers.

I can also heartily recommend:

* Smash Up (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZpMEVQYBO8)
* Carcassonne
* Zombies!!!
* Tsuro

Great way to try out a game before splashing out on a physical copy

Tried TTS this last Saturday after a friend bought a 4-pack. We grabbed a lot of modules from the Workshop and tested playing King of Tokyo. It's very different when you have spent years playing tabletop games using Vassal. I think with a bit of time we'll get used to the commands and make good use of the various modules there are.

You're missing out on a host of nuances if you don't play Carcasonne dressed in full renaissance regalia and maintain the persona of a snooty French nobleman throughout the game...

On a (semi) serious note though I have, in a pinch, used the Carcasonne tiles to map out the wilderness during a Ravenloft campaign before. Not that I would recommend this in TTS though as there are actually dedicated D&D tool sets already in the workshop which do a much more impressive job of it.

Yeah the controls are a little funky at first but with a bit of practice you get pretty nimble with it.. Not tried King of Tokyo yet but I’ve heard good things and its high on my hit list…

That made me chuckle :)
