Hey folks - we hope that you're doing as alright as you can do in given the current situation we find ourselves in. COVID-19 has had a significant impact on all of us. The Hub Games team are all locked away in their various homes, working on what we can, but we still have our minds on a couple of things that are very important to us - the players and the stores. Without these, there'd be no point in doing what we do, so with that in mind, we've come up with a plan. We'd like to present... the Hub Games Virtual World Tour!
We want to do as much as we can to support our Friendly Local Game Stores, wherever they are - even in a time of crisis like this. The Hub Games Virtual World Tour plans to do this by 'visiting' stores around the world and playing our games online with anyone who wants to join us, then offering a code to everyone who plays for use on our own store. When this code is used, 40% from each sale goes direct to the store that you 'played in'.
In order to take part in the Virtual World Tour, you'll need the following things:
- Tabletop Simulator. This is a program available through Steam that allows you to play a huge variety of games. There's a great community that has increased hugely over the last few weeks, and they'd be delighted to welcome you.
- The Tabletop Simulator (TTS) Workshop File for your chosen game(s). This is a file that TTS uses actually put the game on your computer. After you book in, we'll provide the exact link you need and instructions on how to use it.
- Discord. This is an app that allows you to communicate with others via text of speech. We'll invite you to join the Hub Games server, then into a select channel depending on what game you're playing.
The idea is to begin with a test this coming Wednesday - March 25th - in association with the good folks from Fanboy 3 in Manchester, UK. Follow the links below to book in to play Adventure Mart, Flip Over Frog, Holding On and Prisma Arena (our upcoming Kickstarter which we're very excited about!). Members of the Hub Games Team will be running each of the playthroughs, so you don't even need to read up on the rules. Think of it as if you joined us at a convention and sat down at a table at our booth!
