International TableTop Day
Last year, Powell's was an official host of the first-ever International TableTop Day, an all-day gaming event that brought the whole world together in the common purpose of spending time together and having fun. Organized by the YouTube channel Geek & Sundry, there were 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). Our event at Powell's at Cedar Hills Crossing was a huge success. In fact, it was such a good time, we're hosting two events this year.
