International TableTop Day Is Here!

International TableTop Day is here. It’s your duty to go get some gaming in! Be sure to check in with your local gaming shop (or “second home” as many of us call it) to see if they’re holding an event. Even if they’re not, why not go and play some games anyway?! Remember, Gaming isn’t just for singles. Get your significant others involved. Have kids? There’s plenty of games out there they can enjoy with you as well. Get the whole family together to play. Gaming is an ideal way to bring people together for some good, clean, wholesome fun (well, unless you’re playing something like Cards Against Humanity, then it’s “good, unclean, not very wholesome fun,” but it’s still good!).

Happy gaming, everyone!

From the contest:

The last day to enter One Small Step Games Tabletop Day Contest is Friday, March 28.

The three week contest, which began March 7, celebrates gaming and International Tabletop Day’s worldwide effort to promote gaming and connect fans and publishers.

When someone enters, they get to choose from a list of seven OSS Games. The first six are sets of Millennium Wars, a strategic-level, two-player simulation of possible current and near-future conflicts including Ukraine, Iraq, Kashmir, Air War, Korea and America. Entrants can also choose the notorious Politics as Usual, a wild, multiplayer card game that lets players run the campaigns of their favorite candidates in a bid for the White House.

Winners will be chosen on Saturday, March 29. One winner of a Millennium Wars title will receive the Millennium Wars: Six-Pack, all six games in one package. Up to 10 winners of a Politics as Usual game will also receive a Politics as Usual—Unusual Suspect Expansion set.

For every 50 entrants, OSS Games is giving away one game. People can enter the contest up to four times through options like posting about the contest on social media and referring others to the contest. Subscribers to Ares Magazine, OSS Games’ latest project which launched after its successful Kickstarter in January, get an additional chance to enter.
