Tell your friends, we’re not just for digital games anymore. I’m happy to say that tabletop and analog games have landed on itch.io! Ok we’ve had tabletop developers uploading their projects to the site for years, but there’s been an explosion in recent weeks worth celebrating.
In case you’ve missed it: there are analog games on itch.io. Lots of them! You can drink from the firehose by checking the “Physical games” tag which lists all of the projects on the site tagged as such and currrently hosts over 2000 projects. We’ve also featured some of our favorite games on the blog in the past so you have a starting point, but there are more than just games in the tag.
If you’re playing a game already, there are several game add-ons and accessories available. Unfortunately there isn’t really a good tag to collect all of these add-ons but if you search your ruleset on the site you’ll find what you’re looking for. I can’t claim to have seen every add-on on the site, but I’ve seen things like story modules, print-and-play handbooks, and all kinds of other wild projects.
This isn’t the only place that you can find analog games on the site either. The tabletop community has set up shop in our official forums and have a variety of sub-forums dedicated to making tabletop games, sharing tabletop projects, and different rulesets. There’s a lot going on there, and if you’re interested in making games or checking out the freshest projects it’s the place to be.
So what’s next for tabletop games on itch.io? It’s hard to say! We have a few changes we’re considering to make finding tabletop games easier, but we’d love to hear from you! What would make tabletop gaming even better on itch.io? Let us know in the comments below, or share some of your favorite projects that you think more folks should play.
