Oh, what a joy it is to be a Geek these days! Not only is Captain America: Civil War now showing in Cinemas but TOMORROW IS INTERNATIONAL TABLE TOP DAY!! But what’s a Boardgame Geek gotta do to celebrate? Don’t worry! We got your back! Here’s a guide to places you can go with things you can do to celebrate ITTD.

For those of you who don’t know what International TableTop Day (ITTD) is and/or want to know some of the special promotional stuff you might win in these ITTD events, you can refer to this recent article of ours to find out more. This guide will be focusing on what some of the major Tabletop places have planned for tomorrow so you can sign up for their events… or make a Boardgame cafe pilgrimage tomorrow and visit them all! 😛




  • Participating Branches:
    • Dyce N Dyne
      • Location: Unit 3 Elements @Rosemarie Bldg. Pasig Blvd

If you visit any of these Gaming Library partner stores tomorrow, you’ll be in for a treat! They’ll be doing an activity called BOARDGAME BINGO! Every person who goes into the stores tomorrow will get a Boardgame Bingo Card (no purchase requirement). So just like any Bingo game, you need to complete the patterns to win. But to do so, you need to complete the tasks of the square you wanna fill up.


Are you up for the challenge? Then prepare for a day of fun-filled boardgaming! It’s a fun way to get the most out of your ITTD gaming and win some prizes along the way. Who knows? You might even just discover some new games that you’ll like! And with the range of challenges that their Boardgame Bingo card has, it’s definitely a huge possibility. Stay tuned to their Facebook Page to find out more!




  • Participating Branch: Ludo Makati
    • Location: No. 38 Jupiter St. Corner Planet St. Brgy. Bel-Air Makati


The 24-Hour Gaming Marathon is practically a Ludo tradition during ITTD! This awesome event lets you experience a full day of gaming… LITERALLY. Talk about Iron Man Boardgaming! While you CAN leave whenever you want, there will be an on-going raffle and eligibility is based on if you’re still part of the gaming marathon meaning you haven’t left. The longer you stay, the more chances you have of winning AND the better the prizes get.


There IS a registration fee but from the last update of their Event Page, there are still a few slots and you may be able to walk-in and pay from there. Some of the prizes include Boardgames, FunkoPop Toys, Gift Certificates, and much much more. Check out their page and, if you’re interested, you may wanna contact them and/or drop on by to take part in the challenge. At the very least, you may just wanna check this event out.
