Here’s what’s on the table: Tabletop Day.
April 5th, 2014 marked the 2nd Tabletop Day ever and by golly it was an amazing one. Wil Wheaton’s Tabletop did a live stream of gaming and there were thousands of events hosted all around the world. I was with the Geek Say What? team as we co-hosted a Tabletop Day even over at our local board game shop, Dice House, located in Fullerton, CA on State College and Chapman.
Overall the event went very well. Dice House had a great turnout and we were able to get some great exposure to promote our podcast to a lot of great geeks. I personally took part in some gaming and won a few games and lost one...due to some unreliable advice from a source in which I should’ve known not to trust coming from...ahem...another GSW member. Regardless, I had a lot of fun, interacted with some great people and hopefully gained some new followers.
As a prize to all of our winners, we gave out some Marvel Tin’s from the ‘90s, some limited edition lithographs from Bioshock and Watchdogs, and a collector’s edition strategy guide for Reckoning.
The Geek Say What? team also took part in some other games throughout the day. Dr. T took part in a game of Compounded; a game of building chemical compounds through careful management of elements. Dr. T and I also took part in a couple of games of Inkognito, which was a game of secret identities and inquisition. I won both games by the way. Jason and I took part in The Resistance where we were both on the resistance side, and of course, the resistance won.
All in all, Tabletop Day was a success, we made some friends, some new fans, and had a lot of fun gaming. We’re looking forward to next year where we hope to have a larger group of fans and even greater gaming prizes.
