April 29, 2017: Celebrate International Tabletop Day!


Today is the geekiest holiday in the world: International Tabletop Day

No matter what your flavor of tabletop, be it RPGs, card games, board game, miniature games, or anything you can imagine, this is a great day to get out and play! To be fair, every day is a great day to play more games, but this day in particular is an absolute blast. If you have a friendly local game store, you owe it to yourself to head down and play some games. Since the first event back in 2013, I've met so many gamers through International Tabletop Day that I can't even keep count. Crowds aren't for everyone, but if you can brave the herd, I strongly suggest attending your local events. You can usually find someone ready to play just about any game you want, and you can even introduce new players to one of your favorites. Last year I showed a group Simon's Cat Card Game, then introduced them to Betrayal at House on the Hill from Avalon Hill; two of my all-time favorites!

Whether you choose to celebrate at your FLGS, in your living room, or otherwise, when you play our games, share a picture on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram with #PlaySJGames, and you'll be entered to win a prize pack! If you're in the Austin area, I'll be visiting some local establishments, Dragon's Lair and Wonko's Toys and Games, with demo games and promos in tow! I'm like Santa Claus, and this is nerd Christmas!

No matter how you choose to celebrate, I hope you have fun on International Tabletop Day!
