GDC 2016: A Quick Look at ‘Tableaux’, a Virtual Tabletop

We got a quick look at Tableaux this afternoon, and it’s one of those games that I’m sort of surprised that there aren’t way more games doing this sort of thing. So Tableaux is less of a game and more of a framework to play tons of different games as it’s a totally open table that you can do all manner of things that involve cards and dice. It’s also super flexible, so any game that uses card or dice mechanics would work in it.

Tableaux is still in development, but I like the idea behind it. Potentially playing a game like Dungeons & Dragons (or really any other tabletop game) entirely inside of a virtual environment seems like a real neat thing to work towards.
