Pushed as a movement to promote tabletop games; which include card games, board games, dice games and the like, Wil Wheaton and the crew at Geek & Sundry has been pushing “International Tabletop Day” every year for the last 2 years. Today, April 11th, 2015 is the designated day for this year.
On this day; numerous tabletop fans will meet up at certain locations to meet fellow fans to play games with each other in various places. If you’d like to know if there’s a location near you, check out this site!
There is also extra incentive to come to certain places like Game shops because some will be having exclusive promotional tabletop games and items to obtain.
