Our team has incorporated several pre-set games in our Object Picker. These games are set up so that you can join private games within your Gather space, so you can play while also video chatting with friends! You can add any of these games into your pre-existing Space, or you can use a Game Room template to create a Space full of games!
Add a Game to Your Space
To quickly and easily add a game in your Space, just click Build in the Left Nav Menu. Type the name of the game you want to use, or just type "game" to see a full list. When you've picked the game you want, place it in your Space.

Embed an External Game
You can embed a game from outside Gather if the site allows embedding. You'll need to head to the Mapmaker, so click Build in the Left Nav Menu, then Edit in Mapmaker. With the Objects mode selected in the Top Nav Menu, click the Stamp tool. Then click More Objects in the right panel. Search for an object (e.g., Game Box) and select Embedded Website. Then copy and paste the URL.
Tip: You can embed a game in Gather that (a) is available online at an https:// URL and (b) allows embedding. You may need to create a private game ahead of time and use that URL.
Use a Game Room Template
You can also easily spin up one of our Game Room templates at https://gather.town/create/, which come in three sizes: small (2-25), medium (25-50), or large (50-100). These templates feature tables set up with our integrated games throughout the Space. Typically the tables are private areas, so you've got to take a seat at the table to see and hear each other.
Note: Keep in mind the integrated games may have their own limits of number of players. The size of the templates are relative to the number of guests they can accommodate.
