As featured on

“A San Francisco-based company called Blok.Party is using the blockchain to elevate tabletop gaming in a way I've dreamed about since the Kinect launched” -Jason Evangelho

"Tabletop gamers will appreciate the ability to build a collection that won't take up much room, and not having to worry about losing irreplaceable pieces like their favorite fire mage again..” - Kris Naudus

“Tabletop gaming is enjoying a resurgence in popularity, but many still enjoy the convenience that comes with digital games. PlayTable is something of a compromise, bringing the tabletop experience in slate form.” - Brittany A. Roston

“I had a dragon, and he had a mage. We set the toys on top of the touchscreen and they came to life, making sounds based on the nature of the characters. We took turns throwing cards on the table, which recognized the cards and then triggered reactions such as the sound of dragon blasts or roars.” - Dean Takahashi

"The PlayTable incorporates the Ethereum blockchain as a way of saving experience and customization... all data associated with a toy is recorded in the ledger, so even if the piece is traded to different players, it will retain its stats and abilities. Each toy’s stats are updated after every game is completed." - Rachel Kaser

“It eliminates the need to keep track of rules for complex board games. The PlayTable will record every move, putting an end to squabbles over whether someone has slipped a hand into the Monopoly bank.” - Keza MacDonald

“I’ll be honest: When I first got the pitch for “the first blockchain-based video game console,” I assumed it must be some kind of gimmick. But Jimmy Chen, co-founder and CEO of Blok.Party, said the Ethereum blockchain is ‘a critical part of this experience,” allowing his team to create “this seamless bridge between the digital and physical worlds.’” - Anthony Ha

Frequently Asked Questions

General
What is PlayTable?
PlayTable is the ultimate device for bringing people together. The PlayTable experience is part toys, part tabletop games, and part video games. It's a whole new way to play!
Does PlayTable really work with physical pieces, cards, and dice?
Yes. Not a video-editing magic here. All of the footage you see on all of our videos are real and unaltered.
How much is PlayTable?
We aim to make PlayTable affordable for everyone. PlayTable will MSRP for $599, but we are giving a limited discount to our early supporters for reserving early.

We ask for $99 to put your name on the reservation list, which will go towards your final price.

The price will go up after a certain amount has been sold so don't wait too long!

Games
Which games are on PlayTable?
Battlegrid will be one of the core titles that will be available on PlayTable. We will be announcing the full slate later in 2018.
Who develops games and apps for PlayTable?
Most PlayTable apps will be developed exclusively by our game studio for the first year. We want to ensure that quality games are produced and that you have a library to suit your favorite board game genres. We are also working with select 3rd party developers and studios to make unique apps and games for the PlayTable.

We will eventually release our SDK to enable all 3rd party developers to make games with physical pieces and multi-screen features.
Can I play over the internet?
With our remote play feature, you’ll be able to play with friends online, as if they were in the same room.
Will new games be added to PlayTable’s library?
Yes, we will be actively updating and adding new games. Games will be available for individual purchase with a price point up to the publisher’s discretion.

We intend for games to be provided at a $10 - $40 price point.
Do I need anything else to use PlayTable?
Some games will require physical pieces and some are all digital. Beyond these requirements, we think you should bring a fun attitude, good friends, and some pizza.

PlayTable also works with existing figures and pieces you may already have. You will be able to purchase packs of NFC stickers to make them compatible with PlayTable.

A WiFi connection is needed to download new games and to connect with your smartphone.
Hardware
Does PlayTable have a battery?
No. PlayTable will require a power outlet. We’ve found that adding a battery would significantly increase the weight, cost, and we don’t really see someone taking PlayTable to play on a train.
Who develops games and apps for PlayTable?
Most PlayTable apps will be developed exclusively by our game studio for the first year. We want to ensure that quality games are produced and that you have a library to suit your favorite board game genres. We are also working with select 3rd party developers and studios to make unique apps and games for the PlayTable.

We will eventually release our SDK to enable all 3rd party developers to make games with physical pieces and multi-screen features.
Can I play over the internet?
With our remote play feature, you’ll be able to play with friends online, as if they were in the same room.
What sizes are available?
We are planning to ship both a 24" version initially and eventually a 32". We look forward to anything beyond that, but can't promise anything in the near future.

We have experimented with table-embedded units, and a custom 55" table.
Will PlayTable have a warranty?
We intend on every PlayTable carrying a 1 year warranty. Each PlayTable is also made with an industrial-grade glass cover over the screen that prevents spill damage and protects the screen.
Is the PlayTable available in different languages?
We are working through localization as we go through PlayTable’s development process.
