Geek & Sundry, publishers of the YouTube series TableTop, has announced the third annual International TableTop Day, Saturday April 11th, 2015.
TableTop – now in its third season – features actor Wil Wheaton and celebrity guests playing hobby board games. Each episode features a particular board game, and teaches the audience – and sometimes the players – how to play. Given how fond we are of teaching people hobby board games, we’re big fans of the show.
With International TableTop Day, Geek & Sundry takes TableTop on the road. More accurately, they invite their fans to take the show into their own hands, and get out and spend the day playing board games. Their stated mission is to remind us to spend more time with our friends and family by playing board games together. That sounds an awful lot like what we do here at Ravenwood Castle and The Malted Meeple!
Events are being organized around the world, from small groups of friends playing in the family room, to large groups at venues such as game stores and cafes. And castles. Or at least one castle. We’re joining the fun again this year with our own events.
Here at Ravenwood we are bringing back Knights of the Round TableTop Day. On Saturday April 11th, come on out to Ravenwood Castle, bring a friend (or three!) and celebrate International TableTop Day with us. This is a free, non-ticketed event. Our doors will be open to the public from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Saturday. Enjoy a day of board games with old friends and new. Better yet, reserve a room and enjoy an entire weekend of games!
The Malted Meeple will also be partaking in the festivities. Join us and representatives from Fireside Games for a day of great games, great milkshakes and great people! Our doors will be open from 10:00 AM to at least midnight.
So visit us on Saturday April 11th and celebrate International TableTop Day! In the meantime, be sure to check out a few episodes of TableTop. You’ll be glad you did.
