I love me some tabletop roleplaying games, but my biggest problem is that my regular gaming buddies are busy, and spread out geographically. It's often been a chore to find the right set of tools to re-create that tabletop feel remotely. Enter Playsets.
Playsets is an awesome solution to that problem, and looks like it would add an element of fun to a remote game. It's up on Kickstarter now, but it's as of this post only halfway to its goal with 9 days to go. I really hope this project gets funded. I'll leave you with their pitch:
We love tabletop role playing games. The trouble is, we moved away from our fellow adventurers. We all found employment and built families. Game nights were few and far between; we searched for a way to save them and to stay connected. Nothing we found solved our problem.
We decided to create an app to help us share more adventures with old friends; to feel like they were in the room with us, even if they were thousands of miles away.
We wanted something simple that could be used with any gaming system and wasn't confined by specific mechanics. The interface should be invisible, the maps should be beautiful, the whole experience should be easy.
So we made playsets. We hope you love it as much as we do and, with your help, we can make it a reality.
