1. Scythe on Tabletopia does not random a different mat on creation of a new game. Every game has the exact same setup (Red/Agri for example.) You can shuffle seats, but you can't shuffle player mat's.

This means I/we have to:
A) Pull up an RNG to decide what mat we are all going to get and let everyone know.
B) We all have to unlock the mat,
C) Dump all the pieces off the mat,
D) Bring the correct mat over,
E) Move all my pieces back onto the mat,
F) Fix our popularity and coin amounts.

2. All factory cards are placed on the board, instead of having players+1 quantity.

If I'm missing something much easier then doing the above, please let me know.
Thanks!

I think that's great feedback to share with Tabletopia! Have you reported it to them?

I did not, but I will now. I was under the false impression that this stuff went through the publisher.

Sadly, I've had to give up on playing Scythe on Tabletopia. After the last update, it never worked right for me again. If I zoomed out anywhere near being able to see the bulk of the board, things would get so choppy that I couldn't even use the mouse.

There aren't many settings/options, and I was running it on the lowest graphics setting. It's too bad...

Their customer support was less than helpful in my situation, but you may have better results with them.

Jeff, did you access it through Steam or a browser? I had problems in a browser, but none through Steam.

Bryan, I accessed it through Steam. Using any browser was very problematic, right from the beginning.

I had issues with Hostage Negotiator as well on Tabletopia, but that one was remedied with an update. Other games seemed to work OK on there, but I haven't fooled with the service in quite a while, as I really was only using it to play Scythe.

For what it's worth, Scythe runs great on Tabletop Simulator. But it should, considering the cost compared to Tabletopia.

Tabletop Simulator run this game beautify. The only issue I've had with it was someone dropped the chest of tokens off the table and it didn't respawn.

@Josh C Anytime anything like that happens it Tabletop Simulator just spam the undo button a couple of times to reverse time, the game keeps a constant 30 "Save" snapshots buffered taking a new one every 10 or so seconds.
