a world-wide celebration of the tabletop gaming community and industry

Once a year when the first buds of spring begin to unfurl from their winter slumber, International Tabletop Day brings us back to the table to remind us why we play and to give thanks to those who make every roll of the dice exciting.

From the heaviest strategy game to the lightest party game

Tabletop Day is also a day to celebrate those who come to the table in contest or cooperation. It is a time of friends tasked with war and strangers finding a common bond to survive through the next turn. We honor the communities that gather around the table, those who bring the winning spirit and sportsmanship to play with others. We play not just against the board, but with others. To you who manage groups, bring new people to the table, and find that one night out of the month to bring your team together to fight a dragon; this day is for you.

And let us not forget the places we play games, find our new passions, or simply connect with those who are looking to play together. International Tabletop Day lives within the walls of your friendly local event venues. It is here that communities and games find each other, where information is shared and passions flare to life. You’ll find a universe to explore behind every door and beneath every box. International Tabletop Day looks to shine a light on stores and community events out there looking to bring everything that we love about the day together.

How have board games have changed your life? Did you meet your best friend while conquering strange lands, find your voice while completing quests, or have you realized your dreams as a game developer while clinching the winning point? Maybe this is the day that the right card or the roll of the dice change everything.

More details will be announced soon!

In the planning:

  • A D&D mini-campaign
  • Intro to RPG character creation
  • Magic The Gathering
  • Pokemon
  • Board Sprint – play as many of the designated board games as possible in the allotted time, from Shoots and Ladders to Hungry Hungry Hippo. (Don’t scoff, you don’t know how frustrating these games can be when you are short on time!)
