Welcome to "Tabletop Together Tool"
If you are going to any of the bigger conventions this is the tool for you. It's based on the tool I made for SPIEL '16, but now it's expanded to include multiple conventions and hopefully it can help out more people that way.
If you enjoy using the tool you are also more than welcome to make a donation. I promise you it will be spent on boardgames :)
What does the tool do?
- It helps prioritize the games releasing and demoing at the big convention.
What can you do with the tool?
- Prioritize all the new games releasing (and demoing) at the convention
- Add notes to the games
- Filter and sort the list of games in numerous ways (player count, play time, price etc)
- Print your prioritized list (either sorted by booth number or priority)
- Share the list with your friends
- View top games (based on all users priorities)
What conventions does it currently support?
- SPIEL 2017
- GenCon 2017
- Origins Game Fair 2018
- UK Games Expo 2018
- GenCon 2018
- PIEL 2018
What conventions will it support in the future?
- UK Games Expo 2019
- GenCon 2019
- SPIEL 2019
- Possible other bigger conventions
Where does the tool get the data from?
- The data is based on the public data on BoardGameGeek. Without their hard work and their open API this tool would not be possible.
If you like what I’ve done and feel like giving something back, the best thing you can do for me is check out my boardgame review site Tabletop Together
, follow it on Twitter
and share it with your friends.
I hope you'll enjoy the tool and hope to see you at a convention soon :)
