GameTable Online is a free online gaming service that was started in 2001 with the following mission:

* Provide an Internet game playing service for the strategy board, card and dice gaming market.
* Strengthen the industry by introducing players to hit games that they may never have played before.
* Provide a place for gamers to learn about the industry, enjoy their hobby and talk with each other.
* Establish an Internet revenue stream for game publishers as a further recognition of their great work.

The company has been pretty successful for a small start-up. 2007 looks to be the big breakout year for the company as we're now building games for other companies and licensing out the technology that we created in putting together GameTable Online. Most notably, for Wizards of the Coast's upcoming Gleemax portal.


I will certainly be adding to this list as new information, anecdotes and new projects come to light.

If you have any experience with playing any of these games on the site feel free to share them.

It's a great game and still holds up well against the recently updated version. In fact, I feel that the original is superior to the new... at least in terms of the rules. There's no doubt that the new format is the clear winner.

This game was among the first games licensed by GTO. The publishers, C3, Inc., are located not far from GTO so it's no surprise that they would be on this list here.

I love this game. It's one of those games that we'll play at the end of the evening when you just want to have a little fun filling in the little time that you have left, instead of getting into something with a longer time commitment.

Aside from Chess/Checkers, I've been playing this game longer than any other game on GameTable Online. Even though the theme is now a bit dated the game has not lost its appeal.

A number of the games on GTO are games that I've never played in their board form. This is one of them.

Igel is pretty straight forward with two players and gets more and more competitive as you add players. I like this game for its simplicity.

This is my current favorite game on GTO. Again, a simple game but I think that I like the fact that the better you learn the countries and can quickly assess their potential connections to one another the better you do. Also, games can be played through very quickly even with four players.

I'm not a huge Chess fan, so I didn't think that I'd like this game very much. What I've found is that I don't like traditional Chess, but I enjoy playing Chess variants and I like this variant a lot.

Another game that I have still never played in its physical form. It took me about half a dozen games playing against the (admittedly, not very smart) AI before I really figured out the game. It took another half dozen games against live opponents before I felt like I understood basic strategies. Now I feel like I can compete at least a reasonable level, even if I don't often win.

This is a fantastic game and worth playing. Online games frequently take less than half an hour to play. I can't imagine how much longer it must take to play the physical version.

Our lone "collectible game". I've only played this one a couple of times but it's a pretty cool simple strategy game. Definitely worth giving a try if you're on the site.

Sorry to say that this is one that got away. In the end it became too much work to keep it functional. And since it was never one of the games that one would call "popular" it made more sense to take it down and devote our resources to other areas.

Battle for Olympus is a two player board game which pits ancient Greek heroes against Mythological creatures. There is no luck involved at all as each player attempts to outmaneuver each other in a true test of wits and of wills. Each hero and creature has a special ability that can be used one time – save it just for the right moment and perhaps you will claim victory.

Battle for Olympus was created exclusively for GTO by Mr. Knizia.Battle for OlympusBattle for OlympusBattle for Olympus
