Tabletop Day 2017

Hey folks!  Tabletop Day 2017 is coming up soon!  And with that, we've got to talk about what we're doing, and when!  So, without further ado, here's our schedule and offerings for International Tabletop Day 2017!

Tabletop Day 2017 Hours

This year Tabletop day is going to be a smidge shorter than it has been in previous years.  This is due to a couple of things; last year we noticed a distinct drop-off during the second half of the day, and this year Tabletop Day is sharing the stage with the release weekend of a new Magic set.  So this year's Tabletop Day event will run from:

11 AM - 3 PM

During that time, we'll have a bunch of games available for demo!  Stop by and take in a demo on Tabletop Day and we'll put your name in a list to win the game you demoed (and yes, you can win multiple games; last year we had 1 lucky person take home 2 games)!  Here's the list we've got going so far!  This is an early list and is by no means comprehensive. We'll update it as we know more.

7 Wonders: Duel

7 Wonders Duel


7 Wonders Duel is a really great little 2 player iteration of 7 wonders. Players take turns drafting cards and building up their respective wonders until they achieve victory through one of several means.

Forbidden Desert

Tabletop Day Game Headers-02

Forbidden Desert is a 2-4 player cooperative card game. Players attempt to sift through ever growing amounts of sand and brave the heat and lack of water of a desert temple in order to find the parts to build an airship that will allow them to escape.


Tabletop Day Game Headers-03Splendor is another 2-4 player game where players take the roll of gem merchants. With one action each turn, players will attempt to grow their gem cutting empire by cutting gems, reserving promising new properties, and buying new developments to attract the attention of wealthy patrons.

 Valeria Card Kingdoms

Tabletop Day Game Headers-04No relation to the Ballard-based store we promise! Valeria Card Kingdoms is a tableau building game where players recruit citizens and develop their kingdoms in order to combat the monsters menacing the countryside.

Sushi Go Party!

Tabletop Day Game Headers-05

Sushi Go Party is a 2 to 8 player game of kaiten-sushi matching and picking! Choose your sushi from a menu at the start of the game (or pick your own sushi a la carte for a unique game experience), then take turns with your friends drafting cards and building sets of delicious delicious sushi.


Tabletop Day Game Headers-06

Codenames is a rare game that accommodates 2 or more players. There is no upper limit to how many people can play this phrase guessing game. Spymasters take turns giving their teams a code phrase to identify agents belonging to their team. That team chooses the cards they believe are their agents while trying to avoid tipping off their opponents' agents or finding the assassin that could spell doom for their mission.

Paws and Padlocks

Tabletop Day Game Header - Paws and Padlocks-01


Paws and Padlocks is the exception to our Tabletop Day demos in that we can't give a copy away because this game doesn't physically exist yet!  Instead you'll get a chance to get a first look at a game that will be being kickstartered this summer! Paws and Padlocks is a family friendly dungeon-crawl style game where players race to steal their treasure from the evil Slime Queen and escape the castle before anyone else. It's a 2-4 player game rated for ages 8+.

Store Wide Board Game Sale!

As with previous years, we'll have coupons worth 20% off any one board game purchase made in the months of April and May!  We'll also be marking down a bunch of board games anywhere from 10-30% off depending on the title. And yes, those discounts will be combinable!
