Warm up those dice and dust off your meeples! International Tabletop Day (ITTD), the worldwide celebration of the tabletop gaming and community, will take place this Saturday, April 29, 2017. ITTD is the first and only board gaming holiday – a global celebration unites hundreds of thousands of gamers around the world, both in person and through the Geek & Sundry digital network.  Presented by Geek & Sundry, this year’s event will feature a 18-hour live stream, a website featuring over 1,700 global events, countless special guests, and a charity stream for Extra Life, which has raised over $30 million for sick children in local hospitals since its inception in 2008.

 

"I have been very lucky to be a part of some great projects that show just how great board games are to new and old players alike,” says Ivan Van Norman, host and executive producer of ITTD 2017.  “International Tabletop Day has done wonders to share the joy of community and the goodwill humans bring when they come together to play a game."

 

International Tabletop Day is spurred on by thousands of participating retailers across the world. The retailers each host special events for their patrons and fans who will show up and have the opportunity to get their hands on exclusive products that are only available on this day through participating retailers. The list of products is listed on geekandsundry.com and includes:
