Play More Games! International Tabletop Day 2013

#tabletopday 🙂

This coming Saturday, 30 March 2013, marks the very first International Tabletop Day (hashtag #tabletopday).  The event was the brainchild of Felicia Day, who is the creative force behind the YouTube channel Geek & Sundry.  Geek & Sundry is the home of the incredibly-popular gaming show Tabletop, where Wil Wheaton (Star Trek, Big Bang Theory, and more) and a rotating cast of friends play, explain, and critique various board and card games.

Gaming stores, clubs, and groups of gamers will be celebrating International Tabletop Day all over the world.  The event’s website has a comprehensive events list (click on ‘full events list’ on the right-hand side of the page in order to get a working search function) that you can use in order to find venues near you.

Here at Scalliwags, we’ll be playing Munchkin and Zombie Dice with Nicholas Laporte-Papp, a representative from Steve Jackson Games.  We’ll also dig out Carcassonne, an award-winning strategy game now published by Z-Man, and maybe 7 Wonders (my current fave game – see my review here).  We’ll also have some Warhammer figures glued, based, and base-coated for anyone who might want to try his or her hand at painting a model.

Special LE Gloom Card Featuring Wil Wheaton

Do drop by if you can!  We’ll be up and running from 11:00 a.m. till about 4:00 p.m.  There will be special game goodies on hand, like the limited-edition game cards for Gloom featuring none other than Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day as characters! We’ll be tweeting throughout the day, letting you know what’s happening and when.

See you Saturday!
