In Malmö, Sweden, the 1st workshop on Tabletop Games took place at the Foundations of Digital Games conference. The workshop was organized by IDG staff member Antonios Liapis and Maastricht University member Cameron Browne, and saw more than 50 conference attendees join and discuss the future of tabletop games research.

The goal of this workshop was to advance knowledge in tabletop games by bringing together researchers and fostering discussion about the current state of the field. Moreover, it served to establish connections and link research topics and researchers in this highly interdisciplinary field. Four papers (2 short and 2 long) were presented in the 1st workshop, and all papers are freely available on the workshop website.
