Introducing the Google Hangouts App for Tavern Keeper

We’re very proud to launch Tavern Keeper’s own Hangouts App!

This app ties right into Tavern Keeper and allows you to start a hangout game right from any campaign you own!

Start a game by going to your campaign’s dashboard. You’ll see a new section to the left column that looks like this:

(If your campaign is private, you’ll only see the green button.)

Once you click on either the green or yellow “start” buttons, A Google Hangout will start and you’ll be prompted to accept the app. If you’ve connected your G+ account with Tavern Keeper, it will log you right in. Otherwise you’ll have to log in with your TK creds.

Once logged in, you’ll be directed right to a confirmation window like so:

Your players will receive an email telling them your game has started with a link to join the hangout right in the email!

Tavern Keeper also keeps tabs on games in session, so if one of your players visits the campaign while a game is in session, they’ll see a giant green JOIN NOW button on the campaign dashboard, like so:

Please let us know if you run into any issues with using this new feature, or if you have ideas on how to make this even more awesome. 

Thanks again everyone for your amazing support and enthusiasm for Tavern Keeper! This is just the first of many kick-ass features we have in store for you this year.
