Draw directly, or place images, that all connected users can see and manipulate. It specializes in simplicity, virtually no learning curve, and ease of use.

Welcome to the Gametable Project.

Gametable is a shared whiteboard client optimized for the tabletop gaming experience. It is written in Java to offer broad cross-platform support.

Gametable holds simplicity and ease of use as it's highest ideals, while still supporting the needs of the game. The learning curve with Gametable is virtually non-existent. Gametable comes with pre-installed image sets, enabling the immediate creation of custom content.

Among the included features are Dice-rolling, Dice macros, Rulers, Tiles and Avatars-called Underlays and Pogs, Simple drawing tools, and Simple Card deck support.

Best of all, Gametable is Open Source, and is free for all to download, use, and enjoy!

About the Gametable Project
Gametable was originally created by the Creator Team of Andy (Sephalon) Weir and David (Iffy) Ghandehari. Later, contributions of community members were also added into the code. Currently, the Project has been turned over to the Gametable Community as a whole, and We run with it!

As Gametable was created Open Source, it is our intention to keep it Open Source always. We welcome suggestions as well as patches, mods, or features that you feel that you can add to the code. Visit our forums to talk about Gametable and any additions to the code that you can contribute, or that you would like to request. You will find a link on our "Downloads" page.

Installation of Gametable is simple and easy, as all of Gametable is. Download the zip file to your hard drive, and place it in the folder that you want it in. Unzip the archive file. To launch Gametable, click directly on the Gametable.jar file that you just unzipped. Older systems may need to use the Gametable.bat file to launch Gametable.

Gametable is written in Java so that it will support as many operating systems as possible. Please make sure that your operating system supports Java. Additionally, not all operating systems come with Java pre-installed. The Java Runtime Environment is available freely from Sun's website. You will find a link on our "Downloads" page.

The point of Gametable is not to emulate any one game. It instead emulates the tabletop upon which the game would be played. Think of it as a dream combination table, giant map, dry-erase board, and save game doodad.
