Basically, it’s a day for everyone around the world to get together and play games. The International Tabletop Day website is where people can go to register their events, and check to see if there are events near them. So, if you have a business and want people to come play games there, register your event, or if you want to go play somewhere, check for events near you!
Last year’s event was a major success, with 3,123 gaming events in 64 countries. Basically, there are a ton of events to choose from. Last year, a lot of the people hosting events got some major swag to give out, like special Gloom cards and other cool stuff.
The event is based off of the show on the Geek & Sundry channel called TableTop. It’s hosted by another geek icon, Wil Wheaton, who gathers his friends together and plays lots of different board games. The show is fantastic and often hilarious. What makes the show really awesome is that it takes the time to teach you the different board games. I’m personally a board game freak, and there have been many a game I’ve bought after watching an episode, Pandemic and Castle Panic being just a few examples.

So go to the website, register your event, and play more games!
