TableTop Day

Play more games!

TableTop Day imageI love games of all kinds - board games, card games, strategy games and more. But I don't often get a chance to play them, partly due to lack of time but also due to lack of opponents!  

I also love learning new games but sometimes it seems like my friends know the same games I do.  If you're like me -- looking for more types of games and more opportunities to play them -- you should visit Petworth Library on April 5 between 1-4 p.m. for TableTop Day. 

TableTop Day was started last year as a celebration for fans of tabletop gaming. There were over 3,000 gaming events worldwide with celebrations in every state, province, and every continent -- including Antarctica! This year they aim to make it even bigger and Petworth Library plans to help.  

These are some of the games we'll have at our celebration: 
  • Settlers of Catan
  • Pictionary
  • Scrabble 
  • Sorry 
  • Apples to Apples
  • ...and more!
You're also encouraged to bring a favorite game to share, but be ready to answer questions from others who've never played it!

If you're a social media user, the organizers encourage you to use the hashtag #tabletopday on all your posts, tweets, photos, etc. to share your game day experience.  You can also tweet @TableTopDay and @GeekandSundry.
