International TableTop Day April 29th

International TableTop Day April 29th


Join us Saturday April 29th, 2017 for International TableTop Day! In what is becoming a Meeple tradition, we will once again be joined by a special guest, Maureen McCardel from Rather Dashing Games!

If you are not familiar with International TableTop Day, it is an annual gaming celebration created by Geek & Sundry, the folks behind the popular YouTube series TableTop, which features actor Wil Wheaton and celebrity guests playing hobby board games. Each episode of TableTop focuses on 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 to the point, they invite their fans to take the show into their own hands and get out and spend the day playing board games. The 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 our mission here at The Malted Meeple!

So join us at The Malted Meeple on April 29th for a day of great games, great milkshakes and great people! We will be joined by Maureen McCardel from Rather Dashing Games. Maureen will be sharing some great new and upcoming games with us, including Element and This Belongs in a Museum!

So whether here at The Malted Meeple or in your own family room, be sure to celebrate International TableTop Day! And in the meantime, check out a few episodes of TableTop. You’ll be glad you did.
