Controls cheat sheet for tabletop simulator.

Getting Started

Load Tabletop Simulator from Steam. You will be greeted by a screen that says "­Joi­n" or "­Cre­ate­". Select "­Joi­n". The "­Server Browse­r" may take a moment to load as there are often many game rooms. At the top of the screen click on the search box and enter the inform­ation provided by the host.
--- Changing Color ---
In order to interact with a game you create or join, you need to select a "­col­or" to represent you.
Click on your name on the top right and then choose “Change Color” and change to a different color (both left and right click works). This also changes your seat location, but you can see exactly where you will be moving to if that affects your color choice. You can also join/c­hange your team.
--- Notebook ---
The Notebook is a multi-use booklet which includes the rules of the game, private notes and the ability to delete and create other pages.
--- Teams ---
Teams are a way to group Players in a game together so they can better work together. There are 5 teams, Hearts­/Cl­ubs­/Sp­ade­s/D­iam­ond­s/J­okers.
---Tea­mmate Features
Being on the same team grants many advantages that allow players to work together in secret.
See each other's private info (Hand Zones, Hidden Zones, Notebook Pages)
Private voice chat, Private in-game chat channel (Only available when on a team)
---Joining a Team
Click on your own name in the upper right and, from the dropdown, select Change Team. This opens the selection menu where a team is selected.

Follow the same steps taken when joining a team but select None for which team to join.
