For this game's development the program we decided upon is Tabletop Simulator, as a digital board game platform it offers a few opportunities that you won't get with a physical game. I won't get into the details of mouse and keyboard controls, if you want to know more follow this link for Basic Controls and follow this link for Advanced Controls.
The general summary of the links is: you have full movement in a 3D play environment with zoom, you have object manipulation and you can scale and group objects. Beyond that you can draw lines, measure distances, flick objects, add decals, play music and more.
Without even starting the game you can have a ball messing with things and annoying eachother.
