TapTo is an open system for launching games and scripted actions using physical objects like NFC tags. It's a great way to make playing games more accessible, and add some fun to your gaming setup!

See the Getting Started page for everything you need to get up and running. Additional hardware may be necessary but is aimed to be affordable and easily available. Please join the Discord if you need any help or want to show off your work!
