The Games We’re Playing For This Year’s International Tabletop Day Stream

We’re counting down the days International Tabletop Day 2018, happening this year on April 28th! As we get closer to the day, we’re looking over our game list and picked some fantastic games to play this year. We’ll be starting the action on Twitch and YouTube at 9 AM Pacific Time with Ivan van Norman hosting the festivities.

Starting a little after 9, we’re kicking off the gaming with an oversized version of The Climbers by Capstone Games. The goal is simple: climb to the highest level you can, as only one player can end up on top!


At around 11 AM, we’ll be getting into our second game: Grimm Forest by Druid City Games, which we’ve previously described as a delightful, yet cutthroat, family game. As G&S writer Charlie Theel put it, “This is a simple game. Players take on the roles of sweet little pigs, nieces, and nephews of that famous trio, ready to go to work and develop housing for the evil king. It’s a race to building three structures of straw, wood, or brick by heading to locations and scooping up resources.”


Starting at quarter to one, we’ll be getting into our third game: Flip Ships by Renegade Games. In this cooperative dexterity game, you get the arcade feel of a top-down scrolling shooter of old, with flip mechanics that help you destroy oncoming ships, with the ultimate goal of taking down the dreaded Mothership. It’s a fast-paced, engaging and fun game both to watch and play. (7)

At 1:45 PM we’ll be breaking out the chairs, the ring and the ropes with World Wide Wrestling by ndpdesign. In this roleplaying game, it’s all about  feuds, championships, betrayal, and righteous victory. Who’ll show up to be the face, and who will show up to be the heel? Surprises abound with Ivan at the table and we can’t wait.

At 3:30 PM, we’ll be jumping into the Marvel universe with Marvel Contest of Champions – Battlerealm by Upper Deck. Inspired by the critically acclaimed mobile game, Contest of Champions: Battlerealm is a game of combat, strategy, and chance while featuring some of our favorite Marvel champions.

We’ll be wrapping up the stream around 5 PM, but that doesn’t mean the gaming has to stop on your tables.
