Ok, I tried this a few weeks back but there just weren’t enough event details announced. Now that we’re only six days away, it’s time to re-visit it.
Here’s a round-up of what the local gaming cafés are up to (as well as a few other places that are celebrating it too). I’ve included links to all the event pages (where applicable) and places to watch for more details.
Let me know if I’ve missed anything!

No official International Tabletop Day event but they are hosting a Boss Monster Tournament.
Join us for an evening of dungeon building. Can you build the most alluring, most enticing, treacherous, treasure filled dungeon?
Inspired by a love of classic video games, Boss Monster: The Dungeon Building Card Game pits 2-4 players in a competition to build the ultimate side-scrolling dungeon. Players compete to lure and destroy hapless adventurers, racing to outbid one another to see who can build the most enticing, treasure-filled dungeon. The goal of Boss Monster is to be the first Boss to amass ten Souls, which are gained when a Hero is lured and defeated — but a player can lose if his Boss takes five Wounds from Heroes who survive his dungeon.
Three rounds will be played, with the ultimate winner being – literally – crowned. Yes, that’s right, first prize for this extraordinary evening is nothing less than the wondrous Pixelated Paperboard Golden Crown!!! Don’t fret though, one crown will be randomly raffled off! All participants receive a paper play mat and a promo card!
Familiarity with the game strongly encouraged, this is not a learn to play session. Rules from the Boss Monster 2 expansion game will be used for the tournament format (don’t worry, we’ll give a brief overview so everyone’s on the same page).
Registration & Check-in: 6-6:30
Tournament start: 6:30
Open gaming welcome after the tournament ends.
In celebration of International Table Top Day, the drop-in fee has been waived! C’mon in for some free gaming.
