Tabletopia and Discord

The official Tabletopia server on Discord is used for in-game voice communication between player.

About Discord

Discord is a modern all-in-one voice and text chat for gamers that’s free, secure, and works on both your desktop and mobile devices.

Discord is ideal for in-game communication with people you don’t personally know, since there’s no need to add anyone to your personal contacts. Also, you can use Discord for arranging games and finding opponents.

Running Discord

You can run Discord in browser or download and install the app on your computer or mobile device. It is especially handy for those who don’t have computer mics or speakers. The app also provides better sound quality and a wider range of options.

Voice and Text Channels

text-channelsDiscord features both voice and text channels. Voice channels are independent from text channels. You can move between chat channels while staying in your game’s voice channel.

We have created a range of text channels on the Tabletopia Server:

  • Voice-channels#general — finding opponents, discussing general matters, announcing games, etc.
  • #game_discussions — discussing specific games, issues, strategies, etc.
  • #user_support — reporting problems and issues (but we do recommend also reporting them on the Forum or our Support Service).

as well as a number of voice channels:

  • Main Lobby — general discussions
  • Room 1—…  for in-game voice communications.

Useful Tips

  • When you first join Discord, check your User Settings > Voice options. It is not uncommon for a webcam microphone to be selected by default, or for your input sensitivity be set too high. Make appropriate adjustments and have another Tabletopian confirm that you can hear each other talk.
  • If you do not use a headset or headphones, enable Push-to-Talk to avoid unnecessary feedback. Go to User Settings > Voice to switch Push-to-Talk on.
  • While playing a game on Tabletopia, use the in-game chat for any text communications, since other players may not be watching the same Discord text channel.
  • If you do not have a microphone it is OK to join the voice channel to listen and respond in text chat on Tabletopia.
