2014 International Table Top Day Announced

Join in with 60 other countries this April to celebrate the International TableTop Day April 5th 2014 and play lots of games at a venue near you.

What is TableTop Day? 

As you know we at Geek Syndicate are big fans of tabletop games and one show that has done wonders for the hobby is TableTop on the Geek and Sundry Youtube channel. The show is hosted by Wil Wheaton (Stand By Me, Star Trek The Next Generation).

Last year Wil decided to try and organise a special event to celebrate the board game industry and this became the first ever International TableTop Day April 5th 2014. It was a huge success with over 3,000 events in 64 countries and very nearly on the International Space Station as well.

This year the second event has been announced and will take place on Saturday 5th April. You can check online at  TableTop Day to find an event close to you but keep checking back as new ones are added every day. Or pop along to your local game store to see if they are doing anything for it.

If you do attend an event let us know which one and send us pics of the day.

This is a perfect way to introduce the genre to friends and family for the first time.

I am helping to host an event in St Albans with the St Albans Board Game Club and we are going to try to introduce lots of new people to the hobby.

There will be dozens of games there to be played from old favourites like Settlers of Catan right up to the latest releases.

So make sure you book the date out in your diary and find somewhere you can join to celebrate with thousands of other gamers all around the world.

International TableTop Day is a celebration for all the fans of tabletop gaming. A single day where the whole world is brought together in a common purpose of spending time together and having fun. We hope you find the resources you need — to connect new fans to experienced group organizers, retailers with their community, and publishers with the international community — all in one place. The interactive map hosts all of the game days and parties worldwide. If you don’t see an event near you, simply follow the free submission process to create and host your own TableTop Day event that we will promote for you. Download all the free content and collect all the exclusive promotional items made specifically to commemorate this event.

This way, we can all share in the fun wordwide. You can also follow @TableTopDay and @GeekandSundry on Twitter. Let’s for one day, all come together, put down our worries and play more games. Thank you!
