I was a preferred partner in previous years and never get any emails. How can I participate this year?

We still love our preferred partners and we really appreciate you investing the time, effort, and energy over the years to make ITTD great.  We’re making changes to simplify things this year, including a brand new retail locator where you can add your store.  Additionally, we will be gathering submissions to this year’s theme: How Did Board Games Change Your Life?, and featuring them on our live-stream. Lastly, ITTD 2017 exclusives and promotional items will still be available through participating distributors :

When can I order my retail boxes?

This year we are not offering retail boxes. Instead, we are working with participating distributors (ACD/Alliance/GTS/PHD/Esdevium Games/Universal Distribution/Southern Hobby Distribution/VR Distribution) to fulfill the exclusive ITTD merchandise for your store, just like a normal pre-order. Pre-orders start March 1st and some items will have limited quantities, so be sure to order quickly.

Is this a G&S Marketing/Promotion?

G&S is a partner in International Tabletop Day, but not a vehicle to promote its brand. When we talk about ITTD, we only talk about how to create a space for the tabletop community and industry to play games and celebrate a special day. ITTD is about creating a platform to elevate the board game industry, and G&S is helping build that platform.

What are the exclusive items retail partners can get?

Here is the list of exclusive items.

Will all the retailers listed here have exclusive ITTD items?

No. Retailers with ITTD items will be listed as Partners on the site. Since pre-orders won’t start until March 1st, there will be no Partners listed until orders are confirmed. In the meantime, contact your local retailer and let them know they can order exclusive ITTD items from participating distributors:

Where can I get ITTD 2017 media assets?

For a one sheet, logos, poster and more check out the ITTD 2017 media folder.

Can I include a community event in the Tabletop network?

Have you scoured our site and found no ITTD events in your area? If you are someone who wants to throw your own board gaming party on the big day, you can still get in on the action. Submit your community event for Tabletop day by adding your event’s location on the site so others can join. A website, Facebook event, Meetup, or Eventbrite link is required for verification. No residences, please.

How can I submit my video on “How Did Board Games Change Your Life?”

Click here to submit your video.

How do I sign up to get more information (do you have a mailing list)?

If you are a retailer and interested in participating in ITTD 2017, you can SEARCH for your shop and claim it or you can CREATE a listing for your shop. This will allow you to be added to our system of participating retailers and interactive map where customers can find you.

If you are an individual looking for a place to play there are several ways to get involved in ITTD this year! Firstly, ITTD has an interactive map HERE, so you can search for retailers or gaming groups where you can play on the day. You can also find your local game store and ask them if they’re participating. Lastly, grab your friends and family, and play together!

Additionally, if you have any other questions please feel free to email us at info@internationaltabletop.com
