International Tabletop Day

Started last year by the youtube channel Geek and Sundry, Tabletop Day is a celebration for all 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.

To give an idea of numbers that we will have in attendance, if you are going to be coming down could you just register your interest in the table below, and also if you will be bringing some guests with you to partake in the fun.

For those not comfortable with editing the Wiki, I have created the following form for you to submit your interest. I will update the wiki as I get responses.

Tabletop Day Interest Form

Events

I am going to try and organise some events to take place throughout the day. To start I will use this list to allow people to register interest in events they would like to partake in. Then I will do my best to make sure the events with the most interest take place:

Pen and Paper RPG Session

Martin Tebbatt has generously offered to GM a classic Pen and Paper RPG, he is happy with most systems so if you have any strong preferences please say here. Register interest in the table below

Name Any RPG System Preference
Martin Tebbatt Any
Jared Allen Star Wars
Sophie Wilkinson AD&D
Adam Cooper Any
Kris Larsen Familiar with D&D3.5 but Any

Sealed Deck CCG Tournament

I am willing to run a Sealed deck tournament over the course of the day. For those unfamiliar with sealed deck, every participant gets a number of random boosters from which they must form their deck. They then play with those cards for the tournament. No cards are needed prior to the tournament, and you get to keep the cards afterwards. Thhe cost of entry to this one looks to be about £15 depending on the CCG. There is a massive range of CCGs out there, so when registering interest let me know your preference, be it MtG, YuGiOh, Cardfight Vanguard or something else. Register interest in the table below

Name Any CCG System Preference

Boardgame Tournament

Fairly self-explanatory, We pick a boardgame and put together a tournament bracket for all contenders to be played throughout the day. If people want to throw a couple of quid entry fee into a pot I will arrange a prize for the grand champion.

Name Any Boardgame Preference
Martin Tebbatt Settlers Of Catan
Sophie Wilkinson Any
Jared Allen Any
Adam Cooper Any
Kris Larsen Any

Miniature Painting Workshop

I am hoping to track down someone who would be willing to hold a short miniature painting workshop, to give pointers and help people improve their painting skills. People will probably need to bring their own paints and brushes, I will update this space with any extra details if I manage to find someone. Again, register interest below so I know whether this is worth pursuing.

Name Painting?
