On April 11th, Geek & Sundry is encouraging everyone in the whole world to go to their friendly local game store or 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 out the fun activities we’ll be running 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 third 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!
• Join in the fun with our awesome board game raffle! Each ticket is only $1, and the pool of prizes is thick like soup. But less soupy. Mm, mm, good.
• 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 offering a 15% DISCOUNT on all games featured on the first three 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!
