It's that time of year again where we invite you all to play as many tabletop games as you can in a single day: International Tabletop Day! Join us on Saturday 28th April for a full day of open gaming and organised play, and win prizes while you're at it!
This year you'll find a variety of games at two venues - the Proud Lion Gaming Centre from 10am, and the Holiday Inn Express at 12pm. Tickets are £6 for adults and £4 for kids (under 13). We will also be donating £1 of every ticket sold to the Make a Wish Foundation (donation in association with the Holiday Inn Express)!
When you purchase your ticket (or when you first arrive at either venue, if you've picked up tickets in advance), you'll receive a wristband which grants you access to both locations, most of our organised play events*, and our games library. You can then play any game you like from what we have available, or you can bring your own games with you!
Our organised play events this year include two Magic: The Gathering Dominaria Release Drafts*, a Pokemon TCG event*, Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG, Star Wars X-Wing, Star Wars Destiny, and Colt Express! More details about these events can be found on our dedicated Tabletop Day page (though some information has not yet been announced, so stay tuned...).
Our hidden object game returns, and this year you'll be searching for different Pokemon hiding around our shop! Gotta catch 'em all, so make sure you search high and low for every last one.
You can also see just how good you are with this year's Challenge games. Test your friends by winning a game of Codenames with the least number of clues given, or see how fast you can complete the Unlock scenario!
As in previous years, we will continue our traditional Tabletop Prize Draw! For every £5 spent on gaming products in the Proud Lion Gaming Centre on Saturday, you will receive one raffle entry for the prize draw. You also receive one raffle entry for purchasing a Tabletop Day ticket. The Tabletop Prize Draw features a selection of promotional items from in-store events, ex-demo games, and brand new games - including a copy of Zombicide: Black Plague!
In the evening we'll be bringing in a buffet of pizza and party food (optional, £4 per person), then hosting our Tabletop Quiz! Put together a team of up to 5 people and brush up on your gaming knowledge to see who can win this year's top spot.
Want to get your tickets now? You can pick them up in store, or grab them online here. Tickets will also be available on the day at either venue. We look forward to seeing you there, and as Wil Wheaton says, play more games!
*Magic: The Gathering Release Drafts and Pokemon TCG require a separate ticket purchase due to the additional materials and prizes used for these events. Tickets for these can be purchased at the Proud Lion Gaming Centre from 10am, or from the Holiday Inn Express from 12pm (cash only please).
