In lieu of my normal short fiction Saturday post, I’m putting up some pics from my group’s TableTop Day, (which we did a day early). We played Alhambra, Talisman, We Didn’t Playtest This At All and Carcassonne. TableTop Day was started by the Geek & Sundry folks (Felicia Day, Wil Wheaton) to celebrate coming together as a community for gaming. There are events occurring all over the world for it, check out the TableTop Day website to find one going on near you!
More exciting announcements this morning than you can shake a stick at. Can’t wait for Tabletop Day!
- GeekDad has a review of a new game that’s up on Kickstarter right now, Dungeon Delve. The description makes it sound like an easy party game to set up, essentially a mildly complicated dice game with D&D flavor. While reading the review, I kept thinking Zombie Dice for fantasy fans. For $15 it’s low risk for a game, any game these days, and scheduled delivery is for August… perhaps just in time for everyone’s favorite gaming convention?
- Felicia Day announced this morning that March 30 will be International Tabletop Day.
- Emma Newman’s new book Between Two Thorns has made its US debut. Congrats Emma!
Now I'm going to have a nice glass of Baileys with the man I love to celebrate Between Two Thorns' birthday across the pond :oD

The land was farther away from the core and had much less gravity so bigness could develop and dominate
