Tabletop Simulator is as close as you'll get to kicking your foreign friend's ass in an old fashioned game of Chess over the internet. Don't know how to play Chess? How about a game of Checkers for an easier route to ass-kickery. Checkers too boring for your taste? How about getting creative, being provided with all the proper tokens and space required to create your very own tabletop fantasy-land to conquer your rivals and claim victory. This game is sure to please, and here's why.
Right off the bat, the game comes with all the traditional board games and pieces you may have grown up with. This, added to the freedom given to play and chat with people all over the world creates a huge amount of potential fun to be had with friends, and people you may not even know. The fluid and realistic physics add to the depth and immersion that can't be experienced on browser based flash games of the same trade.
The biggest focus point, are the mods created within the Steam Workshop. As of now, over 1,000 creations have been made to enhance and add to your army of tabletop games. The most popular so far, being Uno, Monopoly, Risk, Clue, Connect 4, Stratego, Sorry!, and many more classics. The farther you go, the more wacky things get. Ever wanted to play Guess Who, but instead replace all the cards with Nicholas Cage's face and play with that? Steam user 'zhek' has already got you covered. This is where the main potential of the game lies, increasing the game's popularity and replay-ability everyday as more users submit their mods.
Sadly, every game has it's dents and wrinkles, and Tabletop Simulator definitely doesn't fall short of this. When starting your first game, you're gonna find yourself fiddling with the very finicky controls set in place. Just when you thought you figured out how to grab both dice at once, you fling everything across the table in the messiest fashion nearly ruining the whole game. Drop a card, the object under it goes flying off the table. Move the board, and all the tokens sitting atop slide around like a greased ice-skater. The only downside to the accurate physics, is how flat out broken they can be at the same time.
This game is still in Early-Access though, so it draws it's Get Out Of Jail Free Card. With the amount of work done so far, and much more improvements to come, I see no reason why a fan of traditional and non-traditional tabletop games should skip out on this one. Also, there's a button that flips the table over just in case your friends try to dupe you or you can't take the sight of losing (We all rage sometimes, it's alright). This game has no where to go but up, so get it while it's fresh. What are you waiting for? Go draw your Get Out Of Jail Free Card.

This game ultimately digitizes tabletop games and collates them into one neat package.
Why you didn't just buy the individual games themselves and played them in real life (analog and all that jazz) is something I won't get. Call me old or whatever, but I can't imagine someone buying a game to play cards instead of buying cards to play a game. It all seems too odd.
Still, in the world of simulators, this is one of the purer experiences. It doesn't fail as a simulation of actually playing tabletop games. And the thing I love about this simulation is that it doesn't limit you to certain tabletop games, but it instead gives you the tools to play the games and allows you to go wild with it. You can play dominoes, or you can line them up and knock them around. You can play fantasy RPGs as well, what with the wide selection of multi-faceted dice. There's really a lot to do.
While I rue the slow death of analog games, I can't help but be impressed at how the digital world is gently retiring it.

Okay, I'll be honest here, I don't care at all about the built in games. What is great, is the mod scene, adding in a whole lot of boardgames. But before I go into that, the thing I really like is the potential. My friends and I all live in different states, making the joys of a late night game session nearly impossible nowadays. Sure, sure, I know all about the various sites where you can play games online, and I have made use of them before. Something about Tabletop Simulator, though, just clicks for me. Maybe it's the semblance of being able to actually move your pieces or look at your hand, deal out cards, and roll a whole handful of dice. And then you can always flip the table, sending the pieces flying into space (and then hitting the undo button, because, c'mon, there's a game to finish). And the online works well enough, with lag not really being an issue.
Now, the games and the mod scene. If you like boardgames, and I'm not talking about Monopoly and Candyland, then you might find this interesting. I've already found a wealth of games I don't get an opportunity to bring to the table, and ones that I've always been curious about, but can't justify the expense. Twilight Imperium 3rd (which is a whooooole lot of stuff), Game of Thrones (with multiple set-ups for different amounts of players), Marvel Legendary, Spartacus, Smallworld, Carcassonne, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Cards Against Humanity, and on and on and on.... Most painstakingly rendered. Sure, the game doesn't have rulesets, so it's on the players to know how to play.
Even RPG players can find something here to like. Have a group that's drifted apart? Bring 'em back with this. Mods for various tilesets and character and monster minis, along with any dice variant you could want make this a great place for an RPG campaign as well.
If you're at all interested in tabletop games, give this a look, you might like what you see.
