The Valley Nerd Watch!
This week includes Tabletop Day! It’s a fun event that you should celebrate in one of the several manners listed below. It’s essentially an excuse for people to show off tabletop games in the hope that you’ll decide to drop another couple hundred on some arcane box of tokens and rules because you had such a great time playing it with people. And you know, that’s fine! Tabletop games are fun.
The Nerd Watch will be hanging out at the Deuce trying to get through a complete game of the Game of Game of Thrones for most of the day, so any Watchers in feel free come say hi!
As always, be sure to check out the Weekly Events page! There are a lot of fun things happening this and every week!
