International Tabletop Day

562626_10151509484346170_878441399_nThe Bolinger’s hosted their first ever board gaming event in honor of the first ever International Tabletop Day on Saturday, March 30th!  The Hubbs worked really hard to plan this event, and he did a stupendous job!  To commemorate, I’d like to take you on a photo tour!

625647_10151509484431170_1673642338_nThere were game stations set up around the house so that people could choose what they wanted to play, and so that they could have more than one game going at a time.  This was obviously the Fluxx station – the most popular version of the day was Star Fluxx.

IMG_4691This was our first featured game, Castle Panic; it was a huge hit!  Lots of fun protecting the castle walls, or at least trying to protect them….  those monsters were ruthless and plentiful….!

IMG_4693Tsuro was another group favorite.  It’s a relatively short game to play.  The dragons fly around the board following connecting lines (puzzle pieces placed by each player) and they try not to run into each other or run off of the board.  This was played many, many times.  We all played one last game of the night and Tsuro was it!

530045_10151509484756170_781754315_nOur gaming events are family-friendly – we have an assortment of games that are more geared towards children, but are still fun for adults too.  These games are excellent for families to play together!  I personally LOVE Labyrinth – puzzling through the maze looking for special items!

IMG_4721This was the first game of the day played before the guests even arrived!  Father and Son searching the Labyrinth.

IMG_4698More games to play – on standby at the hearth!  

IMG_4702Our Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day stand-ups from Geek and Sundry – yes, we know we’re geeky.  Yes, we know that we’re in the minority when it comes to loving board games.  No, we still don’t care!

IMG_4732My super hero!  Super Tabletop Man!  Thanks again to my Hubbs for organizing such a fun day!  We all thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t wait to have another meet up event to play board games with other enthusiasts!  

The Hubbs has created a local tabletop board gaming group.  If you’re interested in playing board games, having fun quality time with family and friends, then please contact me and I’ll send you a link for our group!

International Tabletop Day was a success here at the Bolinger House!  Did you play a board game on Saturday too?

Happy to play board games with my husband and kiddos!  Happy for the memories made while playing games together!  Happy for the friends who showed up and supported our event!  Happy for International Tabletop Day!
