There are a number of good applications for "virtual desktops" but only two that I know if which are specifically designed for Card Games and there are a lot of pro and con arguments for both apps.

LackeyCCG and OCTGN are the two big card game apps that I know of.

OCTGN has a cleaner more "modern" interface and a number of online systems that really help it. It is most hampered by the fact that it is PC only, but I hear he is working on a Mac port. LackeyCCG on the other hand is more clunky, though imo once you get into it that is not a problem, but it is a barrier to some younger players BUT lackey plays on Mac, PC, Linux and iPad and the server system means you can play with people using any platform. Pretty cool. It also has things like save sates and the like, which OCTGN dose not have. OCTGN also tries to get you to pay a subscription fee. It is not compulsory but unlocks a ton of cool features the best of witch is a card image manager to "drop in images" into the deck builder. Also OCTGN has some advanced scripting features so many of the large plugins "understand" they game rules to a extent. Personally I dislike this kind of thing and like the game to function like a card game in real life. It also has a custom card template system so plugin guys can add cards with out scans and users can still play.

There is also TableTopSimulator on steam. Vassal and Battlegrounds. These are more focused on boardgames though.

As far as I know there is not a lot of other options.

Yeah I figured as much.

I think Trev should run a kickstarter and try and raise some money and make LackeyCCG - 2nd Edition or something : )

Last update was in 2014 or something.... just wondering if there is any movement on this project.. or if real life has taken Trevor away?

I know it wouldn't help the time problem, but Trev should run a kickstarter or a go-fundme or something to get a little help on this.

I know you can set lackey to download a rules or faq pdf to the users local drive using update file... but if there a way to load a pdf from inside lackey? Maybe a command you can type that will open the pdf in what ever you have associated with the file on your given platform. like /read rules or something like that?

finally found a guy to take over this plugin. Expect a major update to bring this plugin back, and the possibility of regular updates as well as a PC pad and phone versions.

I've been really busy with my baby. I'll post an update when I get some time.

Still extremely keen to add a proper VISUAL DICE system to lackey.. This will open up 100s of games and boardgames..

Way I see it is that you have a different image for each face.. drag it out from the token area of lackey. Double click on it on the table to cycle through the faces and randomly pick on. Add a sound trigger and your golden. Multi-select, double click on any and they all roll.

Games waiting for this I would like to build is Pathfinder TCG, Warhammer Quest TCG, Lord of the Rings, Shadow of Brimstone, Myth, Descent... etc etc... and was planning to do Mage Knight but the Vassal plugin is so comprehensive now.

Anyway I think a VISUAL DICE system is the most needed feature in Lackey.

wasn't there a way to print custom txt from a die roll? So instead of the tet printing :4: it prints "blue mana" or something? That could be a easy fix until the dice function gets added.

Is there a way to macro a dice roll to spawn a card?

Bug Report Forum / Dropbox support is broken again somehow :(

Looks like DropBox is broken again... (was working like a week ago)

This link works...

Even in app if you paste it into the download URL it will "find it"... but no longer will it actually download files or images or anything.

Not sure why...

Any ideas?

It's all good brother... just curious. Babies are a massive lifestyle change ! that is for sure :)

Hi there.... been a while... but I was wondering if the Dice Rolling thing has been added to the application yet?

I know about the print out into the text chat... but there was talk about defining a die by assigning a image to each face. Then when you roll the dice (maybe double click on it, or type the command or something) it would play a wav and randomly select one of the images, or better yet do a small cycle so you can see  the dice rolling before selecting the random image.

Did anything like that ever get implemented, yet?

I'll add this to official release. Remember the lotr deck builder can export to LackeyCCG

[size=24]Lord of the Ring: The Card Game[/size]
[size=18]- LackeyCCG Plugin Version 7.1 -[/size]
So LackeyCCG is finally out for iPad!! Woot-a-loot-a-lot. You can now use lackeyCCG to play on Mac,PC, Linux and iPad, iPhone vs any users on any of the other platforms!

Just a note, I do not own a iPad (android forever, *******!) So if you are having problems with the iPad version the place to ask is the LackeyCCG forums.

Lord of the Rings: The Card Game (LCG) - LackeyCCG Plugin Version 7

Have Fun and ROLL HIGH


- Travel Announcment Voice now says the correct phase
- Now each general token is 100% unique. (Changed 2nd green token to pink)


- Removed "Hover" Button. I do not think anyone uses it.
- All buttons have been abbreviated to Initials to save screen space for iPad versions. This may make the WIN/MAC/Linux version a little harder to use. Remember there are keybindsings.

If people want the "full buttons" back.. I'll make a new download URL for ipad and one for PC that has the full buttons.


Top Button Bar

RA = Refersh All / Threat +1 / Draw 1 Card (F1)
D = Draw 1 Card (F2)
DE = Draw Encounter (F5)
DS = Draw Shadow (F6)
DQ = Draw Quest (F4)
DE2 = Draw from 2nd Encounter Deck (F7)
DS2 = Draw Shadow from 2nd Encounter Deck (F8)
TC = Take control of card (alt+t)


R+ = Add Resource
R- = Subtract Resource

W+ = Add Wound
W- = Subtract Wound

T+ = Add Travel Token
T- = Subtract Travel Token

O+ = Add Orange Token
O- = Subtract Orange Token

R+ = Add Red Token
R- = Subtract Red Token

I+ = Add Indigo Token
I- = Subtract Indigo Token

Now there is so much room I could add buttons for the other three general tokens. I haven't yet as I want to get feedback form the iPad users as I do not have a iPad so I can not tell how much space has been freed up. For now you can access the tokens via the keyboard shortcuts or right clicking on the card.

Canned Button (lower bar)

T+ = Add Threat
T- = Subtract Threat
R = Refersh All / Threat +1 / Draw 1 Card (I know this is doubled up, forget about that!)
S1 = Save 1
L1 = Load 1
D6 = Draw 6
M = Mulligan
C = Choose Start Player
P5 = Peak 5 (Look at top 5 of your own deck)
P3 = Peak 3
P1 = Peak 1
S1 = Scry 1 (Look at top card of Encounter Deck 1)
S2 = Scry 2
S3 = Scry 3
S2 = Save 2
L2 = Load 2
S3 = Save 3
L3 = Load 3
S4 = Save 4
L4 = Load 4

[size=18]Keyboard Functions[/size]

You can set your own keyboard functions to anything you wish, by clicking PREFERENCES button and then clicking KEYBINDINGS. These are just what I use. Feel free to change ANY button but the F!! and the F12.. if you change these you will break some of the scripting functions. Remember you can always update form the url at any time to reset everything to defaults.

Keybindings in Lackey are pervasive across the application, so if you use "t" for take control, then every time you type "t" in the chat window it will trigger the hotkey. So I am using SHIFT+T and CTRL+T to turn On and Off tokens. There is a bug in LackeyCCG at the moment that makes windows systems beep if you use ALT+t.... so for now it is SHIFT+T.. but will go back to ALT once the bug is fixed.

CRT+LEFT CLICK = Flip a Card
HOLD SHIFT + MOUSE OVER (Peak at the other side of the card without flipping it)

F1 = Refresh ALL
F2 = Draw Card

] = Next Phase (auto save each advanced phase)
[ = Last Phase
F4 = Advance Turn

F3 = Draw Quest Card
F5 = Draw Encounter Card
F6 = Draw Shadow Card
F7 = Draw 2nd Encounter Card
F8 = Draw 2nd Shadow Card

F12 = Empty Hand - This moves the top card of your hand to the top of your draw deck. (do not change this keybinding!!)

SHIFT+T = Take Control of Card

SHIFT+Q / CRT+Q = Resource Token (Add / Remove)
SHIFT+W / CRT+W = Wound Token (Add / Remove)
SHIFT+E / CRT+E = Quest Token (Add / Remove)

SHIFT+A / CRT+A = Yellow Generic Token (Add / Remove)
SHIFT+S / CRT+S = Red Generic Token (Add / Remove)
SHIFT+D / CRT+D = Purple Generic Token (Add / Remove)

SHIFT+Z / CRT+Z = Blue Generic Token (Add / Remove)
SHIFT+X / CRT+X = Cross Generic Token (Add / Remove)
SHIFT+C / CRT+C = Green Generic Token (Add / Remove)

CTRL+1 = Toggle Draw Mode ON / OFF
CTRL+2 = Clear Drawn Markings

SHIFT+R = Roll 6 sided Dice
SHIFT+F = Flip Coin

For the record I change the hotkeys so they do not use the SHIFT modifiers, as I always use a voice communication and never use the chat window anyway.

[size=18]There is are some helpful BUTTONS near the chat window.[/size]

SAVE - Save the current state of the game
LOAD - Load saved game
DRAW 6 - Shuffle your deck, then draw 6 Cards, then announce in chat you are drawing your star hand
Mulligan - Announce a Mulligan, then discard hand, shuffle deck, draw 6 cards
Choose - Picks a random player as 1st player
Scry # - Peak at the top cards of encounter deck 1
Peak # - Peak at the top cards of your player deck

Refresh - This is hotkeyed for Mac and Pc users to F1 by default, but iPad users... use this button to refresh. It will also raise your threat +1 and draw a new card in a single action.

[size=18]Useful Console Commands[/size]

Remember lackeyCCG has a huge list of console commands to let you do awesome stuff... see the full list at! Though here are some real useful ones!

/save NameYouChoose (Save the current game, includes all decks)
/load NameYouChoose (Load a save game)
/senddeck # (This command will send you deck to the other player and download it directly to their deck folder, replace the # with their seat number.. so if their name is 3rd in the list it would be "/senddeck 3"

[size=18]Some Tips[/size]

You need to set up a player profile to play online.

In "MISC" and untick "Show ToolTips"
In "MISC" tick "Auto remove tokens"
In "MISC" you can set lackey to "one mouse button mode"


In "APPEARANCE" untick "Make Card viewer image pop out" (if you like some like it ticked)
In "APPEARANCE" Adjust "Counter Size" to make the counters bigger or smaller on the cards

Have Fun and ROLL HIGH
