On March 30th, 2013, Geek & Sundry is asking all of its fans to go to their friendly local game store, community center, or host an event at home and play more games. International TableTop Day is a reminder to spend more time and strengthen the bonds with the people who matter most, our friends and family, by playing games together. Tabletop gaming promotes many positive social and cognitive benefits like increased communication, team work, planning, and is an excellent stress-relieving activity for all ages.
Of course, we’re taking this one to heart at Gamescape and joining in the fun with a huge day of prizes, demos, and, of course, GAMES!
From 10am until 11pm, we’ll be gathered around the tables playing, with maybe a few short breaks for sustenance here and there. Participants are very welcome to bring food and drink so you don’t have to leave the fun even for a minute. Check the schedule of planned demos and events below, but the main point is showing up and playing, even if it’s just a handful of pickup games or something special that you’ve brought along.
We’ll be giving special attention to the titles featured on the first season of Wil Wheaton and Boyan Radakovich‘s TableTop, but our entire game library will be open for use and as long as we’ve got the table space, anything goes…and we’ve got A LOT of space!
Four tables will be set up and dedicated to the following, with sessions and demos of each through the day:
In addition, we’ll have several Play for Prizes games on the schedule, where the winners will get something special related to the game they played:
A special raffle will be held for a free copy of The Resistance, and we’re also participating in Indie Boards & Cards’ Get in the Game promo, where if you play it in the store, you get a chance to become a character in a future expansion!
Other free raffles will be held every hour from 5pm until the end of the night, with chances to win promo items and other games from the store’s hidden vaults – so come early and stay late!
TONS of swag provided by game companies who are supporting TableTop Game Day will be given out as table prizes through the event – but only to those who are playing!
To get everyone riled up and in the mood for gaming, we’ll be projecting episodes of TableTop up on the wall for folks to check out!
And finally, we’ll be offering a 10% SALE on all games featured on the first season of TableTop. We’ve stacked a display with the entire lot of ’em, so you’ll be able to easily identify the most popular titles from the show!
