boardless README


Boardless was started as a service where each user would be able to create his own rules for tabletop roleplaying games and play them with friends. Today it's somehow in beta-version and needs more people to move on. A lot of features have not been implemented yet: game cards, voice and video chats, characters' perks etc.

So now boardless is open and waiting for new collaborators to improve it.
