This evening, during a special “Play More Games” event at the Golden Road Brewery in Los Angeles, Wil Wheaton announced that International TableTop Day will be on April 5 this year.
The event kicked off with a lively panel including Wheaton, producer Boyan Radakovich, game executive Mark Kaufmann and moderator Dan ‘Shoe’ Hsu from VentureBeat where they discussed the consumer popularization of tabletop gaming, the success of TableTop, and the need for a community event like International TableTop Day.
He named TableTopDay.com as the global digital destination for organizing TableTop Day events around the world for fans, retailers and publishers. The site will feature a searchable interactive map which will show all of the game events and parties worldwide.
TableTop is a web series on the Geek & Sundry network, created by Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day, and is best described as “Celebrity Poker meets Dinner for Five, with notable geeks coming together to enjoy tabletop games.”
