DIY digital gameboard

The past Villarol 2020 con we were invited to collaborate in the App Area to gamemaster a D&D adventure using our Digital d20 game system. The organization wanted to keep the experience purely digital, which for us is no problem because the adventure The Siegue of Sâlorium for example, incorporates all the pre-generated characters for the players.

But we wanted to give it an extra touch to improve the players’ game experience, and we incorporated something that we’ve been using for a long time to turn any table into a digital game board.

Something as simple as a coat rack and a projector was all we had to bring to Madrid for the event, and within five minutes we had our digital board ready.

All we needed was an ordinary coat rack, some cable ties and a projector. We put the coat rack on the table, tied the projector with the cable ties, making sure the orientation is right for our players (tip: if the table is not white, you can cover it with a tablecloth like we did) and then used the new Digital d20 “image sharing” feature to launch the maps directly to the projector – the results are amazing!

New feature: Share images

New feature added! Some of you have noticed a new icon in the images:

Yes! Now you can share ANY of the images of the App to your players via WhatsApp, Telegram, Discrod, e-mail or anywhere!

Also, if you use projector, screenboard or some, you can easily send the image to it, and use it as a map for the miniatures, and play combats with real maps directly from the App!

Our experience at Villarol 2020

On January 25 we were able to attend the Villarol con in the city of Madrid (Spain) with the aim of collaborating directing the game of Dungeons & amp; Dragons The Siege of Sâlorium using our platform Digital d20 .

The attendance was brutal (309 participants were subsequently confirmed) and, having already passed the start of the games, there was still a queue to access, but the access management was magnificent by the people of Bukaneros del rol, the association that organized the days, and everything was very fluid.

It was all divided according to zones: the first one of stands and another of board games, then, below, a family area and another of role-playing games, with an area on stage for the people of Dungeons & amp; Dungeons and, already on the first floor, live role games and the AppRolera area.

In the RPGApp area we share space with the people of Dungeon 20, they directing in the morning and us in the afternoon. To maintain a fully digital environment, we use the character sheets that come pre-generated with the adventure in the application, and players only had to choose their character to start playing directly.

Also, using the new screen sharing functionality , we launch the maps to a projector (one day we will tell you the secret of the coat rack) for greater immersion of the players. A most successful experience that led us to launch this functionality for all users recently.
