Step 1: Learn Rules
Tabletopia is a sandbox system. To play, you need to know the rules of the game. Rules are available:

- Join: Go to Find & Play and click any game that is now open to join. Wait for the host to start the game.
- Create: Find a game you want to play using Search or filters in All Games. Click Play Online to host a game. Either click Play Solo or Play Hotseat to play alone or together at the same computer.
