International Tabletop Day is Tomorrow!

Three years ago, Felicia Day and Wil Wheaton created International Tabletop Day, a day to bring tabletop gaming to the masses and take over social media for the day. If you've browsed the game section of Target lately you've probably noticed there have been more tabletop type games like Pandemic, Muchkin, and King of Tokyo. I think it's pretty cool that someone may wander into a Target and find a game like this that could be a gateway for them to get into things other than Scrabble or Monopoly. There's nothing wrong with those, but there's so much more out there to play!

This year, I'm going to my first event and I'm hoping it'll be a lot of fun. You can hit the link up there and see if there's an event in your area, it's not too late!

If you're like me and you love games, you should check out Wil Wheaton's Tabletop on the YouTube. Every couple weeks he plays a new game with some pals. They recently did an "After Dark" episode for Cards Against Humanity. Needless to say, it's hilarious and waaay NSFW  but here it is.

A couple more game related things...

Flip the Table is a podcast about the cheezy, weird, and obscure board game. Every show the hosts talk about one of said games and what they thought of it. It might be a Justin Bieber game, the Bionic Woman, the Robocop VCR board game, or the Batman audio casette game! It's a lot of fun to listen to and you might just hear them talk about a game you played as a kid.

On a somewhat related note is JavaScript Board Games. One crazy guy decided to code a board game to help him learn Java. He enjoyed it so much he decided to keep going and do more. Funnily enough, one of the games he was looking for was Alien and I happened to have scans of it that I found online years ago. I can't wait to see that one get finished and play it.

Whatever you do tomorrow, inject a little more fun into your day and play more games!
