Wil Wheaton, Felicia Day and the group behind the weekly web series “TableTop” are hoping to take their fervor for board games global with a March 30 event they’ve dubbed International TableTop Day.
Day’s multimedia company and YouTube channel Geek & Sundry are teaming up with local game stores and major publishers, including Asmodee Editions, Days of Wonder, Indie Boards & Cards, Mayfair Games and Wizards of the Coast, to host the event — a sort of worldwide gaming open house. People interested in trying new games or meeting other gamers can sign up atTableTopDay.com to attend free events at game shops or to host their own gaming event.
The event comes after the success of the “TableTop” series, hosted by Wheaton, of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “The Big Bang Theory” fame. The show, which launched last April, features Wheaton and a table of celebrity guests teaching and playing board games, card games and dice games, drawing hundreds of thousands of views each week.
Hero Complex readers can get a first look at Wheaton’s latest video (above). We caught up with Wheaton to talk about the series, International TableTop Day and the joy of gaming.
We’re excited to be an official host of International TableTop Day!
