TableTop Day!

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.

International TableTop Day also represents the one year anniversary of the launch of the hit show TableTop, hosted by Wil Wheaton (Star Trek, Big Bang Theory, Leverage). 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.

Yep, we're doing this.

Saturday, May 30th, starting at 2:00. We'll have many of the games profiled on the YouTube show, TableTop, like:

Settlers of Catan
Tsuro
Ticket to Ride
Munchkin
Castle Panic
Gloom
Dixit
Pandemic
Chez Geek

Small World

Alhambra

We'll get there at 2:00, and play whatever you'd like. We'll be at the only store that actually carries the games seen on TableTop on the Northeast side.

It'll be fun. Come join us, and celebrate gaming.

I don't know how to play these.

Can we play something that wasn't on TableTop?

Yeah, bring whatever.  We're playing games.  Not too stuck on the details.  We're keeping it casual, we just want you to join us.

Let us know what you want to play in the comments and what time you think you'll be there, and we'll make it work.

    Thanks everyone for coming. Thanks especially to everyone who brought games to play. I'm exhausted. I agree with Jason, et al. - huge success. Mental notes taken on how to improve for next year, but even if we're not making allowances for being an inaugural event - huge success. Because of y'all.

    Now let's go do MAG CON.

    Great turn out. Had to have been about 30 folks there and about 3-5 different games going constantly. I had a great time.

    Have some clarification on prize support for TableTop Day. Here's what's coming to Swords & Superheroes on March 30th. All of these will be given away as prize support for either participating in games or purchasing the related games on TableTop Day.

    Indie Board & Card is providing us a copy of their Award-Winning game, The Resistance. We're going to have to do something special for this giveaway.

    Wiggity Bang is sending us a copy of their game, Quao. Looks fun. http://www.wiggitybang.com/quao/index.html - again, we'll need to do something special for this giveaway.

    HL Games is sending us five download codes for their award-winning cerebral game, Word Winder http://www.wordwinder.com/#!about/c20r9

      Iello is sending us two "Wil's Favor". Unsure of what game its for - but they put out quality stuff like King of Tokyo and Ghooost.

      Mayfair is providing a pack of tile expansions, presumably for Catan.

      North Star Games is sending us two promo cards - probably for Wits & Wagers.

      Playroom is sending us two promo cards for Killer Bunnies from Outer Space.

      Wizards of the Coast is sending us some D&D buttons.

      Not a bad list, huh? Thanks to Swords & Superheroes for getting this for us and for hosting the event.

    I have quite a few games that I am more than willing to bring. Some are pretty long games though. I'll plan on bringing Tammany Hall and a couple others. Feel free to check me out on BGG my user name is Matthew2600 and let me know if you see something you'd like me to bring.

    Dave from MAG CON is bringing Small World and Alhambra. I should probably point out that MAG CON has the largest collection of board games that you're likely to see.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
