Player hands

Hand zones are a critical part of Tabletop Simulator and have many uses.

  • Acting as the player's "seat"
  • Being where player names are displayed
  • Holding any cards or objects
  • Receiving dealt cards/objects
  • Hiding cards from select players
  • Invisible unless a held object is moved into it
  • Displaying its contents on the player screen

If needed, you can read about creating hand zones on the Zone Tool page.

Hand Zone Hiding Example

Hands Menu

In-game, go to Options > Hands to bring up the Hands menu. Here, you can modify the functionality for all hand zones.
