This is a bit over a week late. Here is our international tabletop event! I had some friends over, we had fun and stayed up til 3am. Great fun, introduced some new games. I kept it to games I could explain jn a minute or two so we didn’t lose the flow or put anyone off.
We played - Zombie Dice (with my new mod podge Zombie cup); Star Flux; Dixit; Gloom.
A great fun evening. Bit sad we didn’t play some others but people wanted to chat or play a rematch of some things!
As wilwheaton says, Play More Games.
My mom lives on a small island (in BC, Canada) where no official TableTop Day events were happening and she didn’t really have any games so she looked at the used stores and found Alias, Malarky, Rummy-O, Overturn, Where in the World are you?, and Shogun. These added to what I brought with me Cthulu Fluxx, Gloom, and Cards Against Humanity. In addition we used an electronic version of Smallworld on my laptop, and I made my own version of Qwirkle. One of the highlights was her beating me in Cthulu Fluxx with Insane Nightmares. After yesterday she has changed her mind on gaming and is going to get other people on the island to PLAY MORE GAMES!
My eldest grew up at the gaming table, from a baby sitting in her little seat by the table as we rolled. Over the years she sat at the table, chatting with the players and asking questions; giving advice when she was asked what would she do if a goblin came running at her with a raised club, she rolled dice and wanted to know if it was a good roll or not. As, the gaming group begin to shrink in size due to work, education and other life events it was only a mater of time before she became a regular at the table. She started at the age of 9 and still gaming strong at the age of 19.

“Basically, what I do is I try to celebrate women. I try to play and hype up female-fronted games that I think rule. I like to read comics about ladies….I just try and put the focus on women as often as possible.”
Since my regular game night has been taken over by pathfinder, I haven’t been playing as many boardgames as I would like. So I’m going to try a solo game of Eldritch Horror. Never tried it solitaire before, should be interesting. :)
