International TableTop Day and Fireside!

Posted on

Last year was the first time TableTop put together a world-wide gaming celebration and it was pretty sweet. This year looks like it will be even better!

This Saturday, April 5th is International TableTop Day, when gamers all across the world will come together to score points, slay monsters, and generally have a fantastic time. We’re going to be doing our part at Dragon’s Lair on West Anderson Lane, here in Austin, Texas.

 

Justin and Anne-Marie will both be in the store starting at 10:00 to run demos of games, including the prototype of Munchkin Panic, if you’re anxious to get a peek, or even be a playtester!

Everyone who demos a game during the event will be entered into a drawing, to be held at 1:00 where we’ll pick 5 names at random. The winners get to sit down and play a game of The Wizard’s Tower with Justin, and after the game, each player will receive a free copy of The Wizard’s Tower to take home!

At 3:00 Justin will be conducting an open Q&A session, so bring your burning questions and see what goes on inside a game designers head. (Hint, it isn’t pretty, but it’s definitely fun!)

The event wraps up at 4:00, so be sure to get there early and join in the fun!
