Saturday the 5th of April will see the second TableTop Day.
TableTop Day is the virtual and real-world event created by Geek & Sundry the entertainment network associated with Felicia Day and Sheri Bryant. It was Wil Wheaton who was especially close to TableTop Day in 2013.
In 2013 the event was held in March and managed to distribute over 1,000 retail kits resulting in some 3,000 events in 64 countries. The goal for 2014 is 6,000 events.
The day itself is a good chance for local venues to get noticed and if 6,000 events do happen that’ll give TableTop Day a reach of some 11 million people.
The site will serve as a hub for event coordination, downloads, videos and other goodies.
The sponsors for 2014 look impressive; Days of Wonder, Steve Jackson Games, Asmodee, Mayfair Games, Looney Labs, Fantasy Flight, Drivethru RPG, Tasty Minstrel Games, Indie Boards & Cards and others.
