International TableTop Day: Prologue

As it is officially past midnight here on the Pacific coast, the first International TableTop Day has begun!

We have loads planned for it in our place, with about a dozen friends expected to call in over the course of the day and play a huge variety of games, from Forbidden Island and Pandemic, to Elder Sign and Small World. We might even get in a fast-form RPG, like Fiasco if there's interest.

We've gotten hold of a few extra chairs and an extra coffee table to allow for multiple games running at once, as hopefully there will be enough people around at some parts of the day to make that a real possibility!

I've also managed to install a custom firmware on an SD card that will give my Canon G12 a bunch of cool extra features, the most important of which, for tomorrow is time lapse! I'm hoping to photograph a few games with this and upload them later to my YouTube page! Naturally, I'll be taking a bunch of photos as well, and they'll be found on my Flickr.

I'm really looking forward to being a part fo this, especially for it's first year running! If we do get a dozen folks showing up, we'll have more people than some of the local gaming stores are expecting!

We're starting at noon today as I post this, Saturday, March 30th, and we intend to end when the second-to-last person can physically got play another game! Pizza has been promised for dinner, and snacks will be available throughout the day!

So, what are you doing for TableTop Day? Even if it's just getting together with friends for an hour or two in the evening, make and effort to play something with friendly company!

And remember, is TableTop Day, so boardgames, card games, role-playing games, anything counts! Just game and have fun!
