Tabletop Day 2017 Banner

Our fifth annual International TableTop Day has been laid to rest: hundreds of gaming enthusiasts visited our store and took part in the celebration which included games, demos, and giveaways.

We owe a debt of gratitude to our friends at Atlas Games, IELLO, Greater Than Games, Jolly Roger Games, Renegade Games, Stoneblade Entertainment, and Ultra-Pro for their generous support: thanks to our combined efforts, we where able to once again hand out over $4,000 in free games and Dragon's Dough cards. We would also like to thank Geek and Sundry for their incredible coverage of our store, and the countless hordes of TableTop fans who walked, drove and hiked a ride on a dragon to join us. A final special thanks goes out to IELLO's Dr. Vargo, who personally hand-delivered the prototype for their upcoming game, Arena: For the Gods, and gave eager fans a very early look at the game's mechanics.

This year was also the inaugural year for our War Room, the shop's very own recording studio. We put it to good use by streaming a multitude of live sessions during the event: you can now enjoy those recordings, at your leisure, by subscribing to our YouTube channel.

If you scored one of our 'Big Whale' bags, then you already have a pile of swag to enjoy, but you should check the list below find out if you are one of the lucky raffle winners who gets to take home even more free stuff!

The Captain is Dead

It’s the last 10 minutes of your favorite sci-fi TV show…
Except that this time things have gone seriously wrong and The Captain Is Dead!

The Captain is Dead is a frantic and fun cooperative board game that puts you and your friends in the role of crew members on a besieged starship.

Our friends at Alderac Entertainment Group were kind enough to provide us with an early copy of this highly anticipated game, so that you can try it before anyone else!

Stop by the store on International Tabletop Day (April 29th) to play in a demo or watch our First Play of the game LIVE on YouTube on April 23 at 11 AM PST.

Now in its fifth year, International Tabletop Day is a celebration for all the fans of tabletop gaming: a single day where the whole world is brought together in a common purpose of spending time together and having fun.

Our wizards will be hosting several games throughout the day, showcasing the best the industry has to offer. Whether you're passionate about board games, like Ticket to Ride, or you're looking to unleash your imagination in a game of Dungeons & Dragons, we'll have the perfect game ready for you to play.

This year we've teamed up with Extra Life and joined the Geek and Sundry team to help raise funds for the Children's Miracle Network: please help us support this worthy cause by donating what you can on our team page.


Whether you decide to spend the whole day with us, or just drop in for a 10 minute game, we look forward to rolling some dice with you! However, if you live too far away or simply can't get away for a spell, you can still join the action by following the exploits of our Wizards and the First Play team on our YouTube channel: we'll be streaming games live during the entire event! (and remember to like and subscribe: our subscribers are entered to win a free game every month!)

As a thank you, we are offering a 20% discount off MSRP on all TableTop-featured games and their expansions, as well as complimentary day's rental from our wide-ranging board game library! Purchases of $100 or more include a free 'Big Whale' grab-bag chock full of goodies like a free game (yes, a free, fully fledged game, not an expansion), a Dragon's Dough card (ranging between $5 and $50 in value), and much more!

Take part in our Promotional Game Raffle to earn chances for an assortment of amazing prizes. Share a picture of yourself on the Throne of Games (It’s BACK and here to stay!), bring a friend, play some games: there are lots of ways to earn your raffle tickets! Be sure to stop in to learn them all.

Our galleria artwork rotates on a regular basis and we're always looking for something new to display: if you're talented or you know someone who is, please reach out to our Wizards for consideration.

The turbolasers have silenced, the targetting computers have been switched off, and Porkins has failed to pull up. Our Regional Qualifier events for Star Wars Armada and Star Wars X-Wing have come and gone and we could not be happier with how they went. For those of you who played in one or both events, we would like to thank you for helping to make them a success. It took a lot of work to put these events on and we're thrilled that it turned out to be worth it. We hope everyone had a good time and we hope to see everyone again for the next round of regionals (assuming we get them again).

While we're at it, we would like to congratulate the winners of each event. So congratulations to Jarret Beckoff for winning the Armada event and Keith Graves for winning the X-Wing event.
