Sorry I couldn't get this up right away. For #tabletopday I held two events. The First was at B&N where my wife and I taught Ticket to Ride, Carcassone, Tsuro, Qwirkle, and also explained Bananagrams, Applegrams, Peargrams, Clue, Apples to Apples, & Rush Hour. I don't exactly know how many games I taught and played there, but it was a lot. The event was a success not only in the sense that customers enjoyed it, but it noticeably boosted B&N's game sales so it is likely I will be back in the future to do this again. After that I went to my FLGS to celebrate #tabletopday with Dan Fries at the Great Lakes Games Emporium. Ken Grazier was hosting games there for Dan Fries and Mentor Gamers and I came in to help with that event as well. I missed some gamers that were there earlier such as Christopher Schroeder, but I did meet a bunch of new friends as well as some good guys from Eastside Games. I quickly joined in on a game of Smallworld, but wasn't able to fully devote my attention to it as a couple I had met at B&N came in to the game store and wanted to learn King of Tokyo. I Ken Grazier was a champ in helping me teach them King of Tokyo and playing Smallworld at the same time. I then went on to play a couple games of Zertz, a game of Micro mutants (a dexterity game of Tiddlywinks with special powers, I kid you not), and Merchant of Venus. Overall a good time was had by all and I didn't finish until almost 1 in the morning. Thanks to all who attended both events and making them a success, and a special thanks to Susanna Parish at B&N and +Dan Fries at Great Lakes Game Emporium for hosting these events.
Thanks to everyone that was involved and helped make the day a success!
P.S. Susanna Parish , my wife made the Meeple cookies. I didn't get to take picture of them at the event, but before I ate the last two I took a pic. Tasty!
