It is incredibly important to pretend we can go outside and no worry about things at the moment. I know it’s annoying to read another post talking about the current COVID-19 situation, but it’s also an inescapable truth that we’re going to have to keep ourselves entertained for a while longer. It’s essential that we ride it out and do our bit, but it’s also essential that we do what we can to keep our own mental health as robust as possible.
One of the best things you can do to keep your spirits up is play board games, and one of the best ways to play board games at the moment is Tabletop Simulator. That’s not to say it isn’t always a good time to play Tabletop Simulator, because it definitely is, but it’s especially great at the moment because of the whole not seeing each other thing. The reason why it’s so great is thanks to the way it’s designed.
Rather than attempting to put one game into a digital format, Tabletop Simulator decides it’s better to simply give you physics to play with. From there, they’ve partnered up with different companies to bring in digital versions of their games. It’s an astounding accomplishment really, and the ability to play nearly any game you think of shouldn’t be underestimated. Plus, you can play the whole thing in VR and truly live the digital board game life. So yeah, now is exactly the right time to be playing Tabletop Simulator, so make sure you jump in for a game soon.
