Building a Tabletopia Utopia at Web Con 2020
I dream of a world where everybody gets along and plays tabletop games all day long. A world where our biggest problem is finding enough people to get a tabletop game started. Now more than in recent history, the internet has shown us that it has become an essential tool in our daily lives. It gives us a way to stay connected to the people we love, the people that are important to us and the people that share our passions for trivial things (in the grand scheme of things) like tabletop games.
Charles Darwin said it best, “It is not the most intellectual of the species that survives; it is not the strongest that survives; but the species that survives is the one that is able to adapt to and to adjust best to the changing environment in which it finds itself.” I don’t think there’s a more accurate statement for the current state of affairs we find ourselves in. COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has changed the world, and in order to survive we need to heed the words of the late Charles Darwin. Okay, maybe I’m being overly dramatic, but at the risk of sounding like a compassionate human being, I honestly care about your health. My family’s health. The health of my friends, coworkers, and of course my own. If that means I need to adapt to the situation around me so be it.
Companies like Tabletopia are the bridge for us to make the connection, not only to other people but also towards the future. The curmudgeon in us may be against learning to use a digital tool when the physical one is much superior. Tabletop simulators are clunky. There I said it. But it doesn’t change the fact that I want to play games with my friends and other people who share the same passion. I, like you, would much rather be playing my physical games in person sharing a few drinks with my friends. But not at the risk of our health. Tabletop simulators are intimidating. Or at least they can be to those less technologically inclined, but guess what? People like me are here to help you make the transition for the benefit of humanity.
On May 30, myself and the Drop the Spotlight Gaming Crew are going to be panelists at Web Con 2020. We invite you to come and pay us a visit as we go over the many benefits of Tabletopia’s tabletop simulator and website. We’ll dive into setting up a game, how to invite friends, and even sample some games to show you how easy and fun it is to use. We’ll also show you a few other tips and tricks that’ll make your life easier on Tabletopia. You can view my snapshot below in case you’d like to get a head start. So grab a pair of virtual dice, mark your calendar, and join us from 8-9 pm CT on May 30 as we guide you into the unknown to build my Tabletopia Utopia. Follow Web Con 2020 on Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, or Instagram to stay up to date on the latest details. Until then, we’ll see you at the cons!
