Card holders

Card holders

Card holders are an object type in Tabletop Playground. A card holder can contain a number of cards. When dropping a new card onto a card holder, the existing cards move to show where the new card will be placed.

Card holders can be ownerless, or have a single player as owner. If they have an owner, all cards on the holder with their front face up are only visible to the owning player, other players just see a grey blur. Cards with their back face up are shown to all players. Single cards or small card stacks can be put into card holders, as long as the capacity limit isn’t reached: card holders have a maximum number of cards that they can hold.

In order to deal or draw cards from a stack using hotkeys or the context menu, you need to have card holders on the table. For example, if you want to draw cards there has to be a card colder that you own. You can have one primary card holder for which the cards are always shown at the bottom of the screen. Usually your primary holder will automatically be the one holder you own, but you can have multiple owned card holders or even select a holder without owner as primary from the context menu.

Card holders have three custom properties:
Take Cards: Determines whether only the owning player can take cards from the holder.
Hidden Cards: Determines how other players see hidden cards in the holder.
Owner: The player color that owns the card holder. Can be set to no player.
