Has it really been a YEAR since the 1st ever INTERNATIONAL TABLETOP DAY?

I guess it must have been, because This Saturday (5th April) is the Second annual International Tabletop day.

If you are reading this post and blinking in confusion, or are wondering WTF is going on, Maybe you should get yourself a quick primer and go read a few other pages.

 

  1. Last Years Post
  2. The Official Website

Are you back with us now? Good.

We here at the Ninja Temple will once again be participating in the Event, We have not yet fully decided what we are doing. Either Take over one of the Game-shops In Chester.  Or host our own Tabletop Day event at the Ninja Temple, or a local Coffee-House.

We like coffee, so the latter is a very possible option.

What are you doing for TableTop Day???

Whatever you do, Whether you go to an event you found here, or you are visiting your local gaming store, Hanging out playing games at a friends house, or even online gaming (there are some Skype based events organised) remember to have fun and TO PLAY MORE GAMES!!!!

 

TLDR;

geekandsundry_logoInternational TableTop Day 2013 was a huge success — we had 3,123 gaming events in 64 countries worldwide, including every state and province in North America and every continent on the planet (yes, even researchers in Antarctica were playing.) With your continued support, we’re hoping to make International TableTop Day 2014 even bigger!

International TableTop Day is a celebration for all the fans of tabletop gaming. A single day where the whole world is brought together in a common purpose of spending time together and having fun. We hope you find the resources you need — to connect new fans to experienced group organizers, retailers with their community, and publishers with the international community — all in one place. The interactive map hosts all of the game days and parties worldwide. If you don’t see an event near you, simply follow the free submission process to create and host your own TableTop Day event that we will promote for you. Download all the free content and collect all the exclusive promotional items made specifically to commemorate this event.

From the Bookshelf: Dancing Barefoot

Jun18

Dancing_BarefootThe stories:

Houses in Motion

Ready Or Not Here I Come.

Inferno.

We Close Our Eyes.

The Saga of SpongeBob VegasPants.

 

 

For those of you who only know Wil from his Film/Tv work (Stand by me, Star Trek, Big Bang, eureka, etc) you have no idea what you are missing.

Wil just like his character in Stand-by-me, grew up to be a writer, and what a writer.

Anyone who has read his blog knows the feelings he can put into his posts and stories, how he can make you feel like you were there.

Dancing Barefoot is his first book, although technically that would have been Just a Geek, but dancing barefoot burst out of Just a Geek like a Xenomorph bursting from a marine, to make sure it lived first.

Its a small collection of five stories, funny, sentimental, emotional, and interesting for different times in Wil’s life. It even comes with a dash of William F*****G Shatner.

Never bet against a Geek

I have been sorting out the To-Sort folders on my machines, it’s a job you can tell is long overdue by the recursive To-Sort folders that have moved from long dead machines to the To-Sort folders of newer machines. In one of these long distant folders I found a photograph, which reminded me of a story. A story I am going to share with you dear Constant Reader because it teaches an important message. “Never bet against Geeks” because they are resourceful and think outside the box.

It was December 2002, University’s had broken up for the Christmas  break and there was a group of us out celebrating seeing each other again after the long semester.

An Important fact to remember is that in 2002 mobile phones were not as common as they are now. Very few people had them, and even less carried them about due to their large size. Oh, and a phone with a camera, that was pure science fiction.

So there we were, several pubs along our way through a pub crawl when someone mentioned that it would be great if we had a photo to remember the night. But who takes a camera out with them on a pub crawl?

We had no chance right?

Well that’s what the majority of the group decided, and I say majority because there was two of us who decided there must be a way, nothing is impossible right?

So, we were out in the middle of the local town, slightly drunk, with no camera and the need to get a photograph. We had no chance, right? The rest of our group were so positive they even made a small wager. A wager of several drinks was involved. This was their big mistake.

You do not give a geek a puzzle. If you do, you do not tell the geeks its impossible. And if you really do that, you really do not add a wager of beer!!

We had no chance right?

Correct, we did not have “No Chance” we had “Every Chance” for we were geeks. I recalled there was a webcam setup in the window of the local council offices, so if we stood in the area it pointed at we would be in a picture. We just needed someone to go to the webpage and grab a screen shot of the image. This is where my fellow Geek, popped into a phone box, phoned his Uni digs, where he knew one of his room mates would be about to do the necessary.

So we organised a signal, and went to go stand in front of the webcam, While 100 miles away someone sat at their computer and waited for the signal, then did a screen capture, and emailed us the image.

Challenge completed, a photo of the evening was procured. and many free drinks were had.

So, dear Constant Reader never bet against a geek, for as the bible says “The Geek will inherent the earth

I Have the Best (But Oddest) Friends

Apparently last night Geek Goddess Felicia Day Tweeted the following.

I did not see the tweet myself due to being asleep. What I did see was the emails waiting for me in my inbox, and the DM’s on Facebook/Twitter from different friends. Mostly along the lines of “Congratulations”, “How did you manage that”, “WOW, your fantasies have come true” and other variations on the theme.

For those of you with a confused look on your face, IN Uni I was referred to as “Pen” and my Uni friends, and SPOD friends from that time still call me Pen. Which makes the phrase “Pen exploded all over me.” a totally different meaning.

Friends. You Rock !m!.
