8 – Tabletop Simulator
Why settle on one game, when you can have them all? Tabletop Simulator lets you plan board-game meetups with coworkers and friends alike to battle it out in any game imaginable. Set up your own D&D campaign, or perhaps just play some Mancala or Backgammon — the choice is yours. With physics-based game pieces, you can also take your frustration from isolation out by flipping the entire table over — don’t worry, any action can be undone, or flipping can be downright disabled!
There are plenty of quality DLC options as well, with quality renditions of popular games such as Wizard’s Academy and Boss Monster, each with their own custom environments and every piece you need to play. What’s most convenient is that only the host needs to own the DLC for everyone to connect and play it, so that should help keep costs down. Prices of each expansion are priced much lower than their physical versions, which makes the decision a no-brainer if you are looking for a digital version to play with others.
The whole package wraps up to be an enjoying take on physical games that offers nearly infinite options to play. With dozens of DLCs to expand the base game and the option to create your own content, you’ll always find something to play in Tabletop Simulator.
Tabletop Simulator can be purchased on the Humble Store.
