This Saturday April 30th, 2016 is the 4th annual International Tabletop Day. Started in 2012 as an offshoot of the youtube series Tabletop, the event is a great way to celebrate the growing industry of board games and welcome new people to the hobby. There are several tabletop day events going on around the Capital Region:
Zombie Planet in Colonie will be hosting gaming for 24 hours starting at 10am on Saturday. There will also be a Pokemon Card Game tournament, a Warhammer 40k event, and a Magic: The Gathering event in the evening. The event page can be found here.
Foam Brain Games in Troy will also be getting in on the fun with open gaming during the day. Players will have tickets entered into a raffle for every hour they spend playing board games, and the dubious honor of having their name emblazoned on a duct tape trophy memorialize their gaming victories. The event page can be found here.
Puzzle Bakery & Cafe in Schenectady will be hosting gaming as well. Enjoy treats and drinks from the Cafe while gaming and stay after closing at 8pm for some after hours fun. The event is part of the Capital Area Gamers meetup page.
All locations have a library of games available to try out and play, and all events are free! Also various board game promos or full games will be available in give-aways and raffles at the store.
If you are not in the Capital Region there are plenty of events going on worldwide! Check out the event locator on the official International Tabletop Day page.
Have an event that I haven’t listed here? Let me know and I will share the good news! Happy Gaming everyone.
