    International TableTop Game Day 2014

    March 31, 2014

    On April 5th, Geek & Sundry is encouraging everyone in the whole world 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 – and of course we’ve got lots of snacks behind the counter for purchase. 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 second 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!

    • We’ll be getting visits and demos through the day from some of our favorite game companies and designers:

    Susan McKinley Ross

    Peaceable Kingdom
    (publishers of Fish Stix, Hoot Owl Hoot!, Noodle Spedoodle, etc.)  – 12-4pm

    Greg Powers

    • 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!

    • We’ll be announcing the details of a fantastic spring sale. Those who know us also know that we don’t often have sales, but the idea is so fun and cool, we just could’t resist. So prepare yourselves for THE HUNT!

    • And finally, we’ll be offering a 15% DISCOUNT on all games featured on the first and second seasons 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!
