Online arena for playing board games just like in real life. Tabletopia is a sandbox style platform which means the games have no AI controlling the game play. The players interact with the game, moving the elements about and at least one player must know the game. There are three levels of player accounts including a Free Bronze option, and then Silver ($4.99/pcm) which give access to premium games and Gold levels ($9.99/pcm) which both gives access to premium games and also allows you to invite guests players into premium games.

There is a 'Find and Play' service which helps you find games wanting additional gamers.
