International Tabletop Day

Founded in 2013 by Internet Nerd Gurus Geek & Sundry, International Tabletop Day is a worldwide celebration of board-gaming goodness. Local purveyors of comics and games, Vault of Midnight, will be on hand to lend their sharp wit & board gaming expertise to all eager attendees. With a well crafted and finely curated selection of board games in tow, they’ll be teaching both classic and contemporary games for any age.

International Tabletop Day is a free, family friendly event for both board and card game initiates and curious noobs alike. This is a great opportunity to nerd out and scratch your tabletop itch, to introduce your non-gamer friends to an incredibly enriching and rewarding hobby, or to come see what all of this board game fuss is about in the first place.
