In just a few short weeks, we will once again celebrate two of geekdom’s high holy days, International Tabeltop Day and Free Comic Book Day. Each event serves to celebrate all the ways these pursuits have enriched our lives.
Tabletop games bring people together, literally, in ways that few activities can rival. They challenge our mind, heart and spirit (and sometimes even our friendships -I’m looking at you, Diplomacy 😉 ). Join us on Saturday, April 29 for a can’t-miss day of demos and organized play. Whether you’re an experienced gamer or just discovering all the joy this hobby can bring, we will have something for you. Keep an eye out here and on our Facebook page as we announce more details in the next few days.
Free Comic Book Day follows close on the heels of ITTD. Exactly as the name implies, this is your chance to get some really great comics for absolutely free. Join us on Saturday, May 6 and let us introduce you to comics OR to your new favorite. We’ll have great new comics for all ages and interests, plus fun activities, specials and giveaways. Comics are a fantastic way to inspire young readers not just to read but to WANT to read. Rooted in the dawn of mass printing, comics have long been a stalwart of American storytelling and at GeekLife, we take great pride in curating a widely diverse selection of these voices.
We can’t wait to see you at these exciting events!
