Have you heard of International Table Top Day? Do you love board games? Do you want to spend more time with your friends and family, while being a part of a global gaming movement? If so, put the controller down, walk away from the television and learn more about table top day 2014.

International Table Top Day 2014 is on Saturday, April 5th. The first International Table Top Day was a huge hit in 2013, with 3,123 gaming events in 64 countries and representation on all seven continents (yes, including Antarctica!) The hope is that 2014’s table top event blows 2013 out of the water. With your help, International Table Top Day can become a viral, global phenomenon. Here’s how it works:

Fans from all over the world gather at gaming events to play table top games (i.e. Sorry, Monopoly, Battleship, Magic: The Gathering, etc.) and unite with one common goal – fun. The event is a great opportunity to showcase your gaming skills, spend time with loved ones, compete in a friendly, laid-back environment and participate in a movement to encourage unplugging from our digital lives.

This event is perfect for people of all ages, and it’s a great opportunity to learn a new game while spending quality time with your family members. It doesn’t matter which game or games you choose to play on the day, and it doesn’t matter how big the event you attend is. Simply register to get started gaming.

An interactive map is available online and it provides information about organizers in your community and how you can get involved. If you don’t see a gaming event in your area, it’s easy and free to submit a form to create and host your own Table Top Day gaming event. If you’re hosting, the event is free and you don’t have to feel pressure to host a major crowd. If you do decide to promote your event, table top day is a great way to meet new friends in your area who are interested in gaming or who just want a little added fun in their lives.

Are you interested? It’s easy to compile a team of any size, choose your favorite board game and play in a small group or a massive crowd. If you want to host your own event but don’t have enough games, be sure to stop by a table top games store and pick up a few favorites or order them online.  Also, stop by the Table Top Day website here, which features a section where you can choose and personalize your own logo, and has tons of information on last year’s event as well as a community section where you can connect with other gamers.

The best thing about International Table Top Day 2014 is its ability to unite the globe for a common good – bonding with loved ones and friends.  If you want to get more competitive with your own event, you can. The rules are simple, play a game, gather with friends and join in the movement!

Hopefully next year Steampunk Goggles: The Deck & Scrapyard Empire will be among the games you play!
