Coming up with sixes and sevens on what to do April 11? Don’t want to end up feeling ‘board’? That’s when the third annual International TableTop Day is scheduled, and there’s nothing dicey about it. You, too, can roll a natural 20 for events by participating or hosting your own.
Okay, okay – enough with the ‘play’ on words. Created by Wil Wheaton and the folks behind Geek & Sundry’s TableTop web series, International TableTop Day is a way to celebrate your love of tabletop gaming. Last year’s event, which I covered for Annenberg Radio News, ended up having participants in 80 countries across all 7 continents, with over 3,000 gaming events.
If you’re interested in participating this year, you can go to TableTopDay.com, put in your location, and their handy dandy search engine will tell you what events are near you. Or, if you’re interested, you can also create an event on the same website by clicking “Make an Event”. Many gaming retailers are partnering with this event, so check in with your local hobby store to see if they’re interested.
Geek & Sundry will once again livestream their LA event (tickets available here) on the Geek & Sundry Twitch channel, and is even having a Fan Contest asking for stories of how you’re going to participate this year (contest ends 3/21/2015), with the grand prize getting the TableTop Day game kit with over $250 worth of collectible gaming items.
Feel free to tag SciFi4Me’s Instagram account with any photos of your event, with you (or your friends) playing genre-based games. You can see my photos from the LA event last year on my Flickr account.
