A free web app in development for asynchronous multiplayer campaign play for Imperial Assault
by Jon Deutsch
Please take a couple of minutes to fill in this short survey to help improve Portable Wartable. This is completely anonymous.Take the survey
The app is now feature complete!
There are still some bugs to fix and probably some QoL features missing, but all campaign functions are implemented.
This app is meant for asynchronous play. Single missions could take days or even weeks. Whole campaigns even longer. Be prepared for some waiting time when joining a game and check in regularly if you can. (once every day or two is advised)
The app is in a beta release state. Things might
go wrong or be lost
at any time, but is highly unlikely.
You may register an account bound to your email address and log in. In the lobby you can create new games or join existing games.
Please direct any questions or bugs to me at firstname.lastname@example.org .

You are free to join any open game that I create or create your own. When you join you can decide if you will be playing Rebels or the Empire. You need to have at least one imperial and rebel player to start the game.
If you wish to join a game please stick around and try to check in once every day or two if you can. Idle games with no active players will be closed eventually in the beat phase.
There is a small help window at the top of the screen when the game has started to help you with the controls.
