No Event Near You? No Problem!

As fun as it is to attend an event to enjoy your favourite tabletop game, you can still celebrate the day without leaving your home. International Tabletop Day is about joy and togetherness through playing games.  

If you can’t go out to an event, then play at home! Arrange a board game braai for friends and family and challenge the braai master to a game of 5 Second Rule. He won’t even have to put down the braai tongs to play. Get the kids together for some frantic rounds of Spot It or Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza. You can even rekindle the romance and have a stay in board game eve with your partner. 

It doesn’t matter how you celebrate, as long as you celebrate!
