Create a new table

In order to create a new table, click on the My Tables tab on the website, then click on Create a new Table. If you cannot find the game system you wish to play in the list, take a look at the community systems, where you will be able to find game systems created by the community and add them to your list of systems.

Invite your players

Once your table is created, you can click on its title in the tables list to display additional information. You will find a box Invite friends there, with a link that you can give to the people you want to invite. By clicking on this link, your friends will be able to join your table.


To join your table as GM, click on Play Now in the tables list, then on Join as the Game Master which will appear in a banner above the character list.
