International Tabletop Day is a day to celebrate tabletop gaming that was started in 2013 by the Geek & Sundry youtube channel as a way for people to get together and share their favorite games. This year, we'll be gathering together with our friends on Saturday, April 28th all day long to play our favorite games, try out something new, and to just have a great time.
To make things extra special, we've invited one of our local patrons, C. S. Ferguson, to stop by and show us some of the games he's been busy designing. If you've never met Chris, here's a little bit about him:
C. S. Ferguson used to be an adventurer. He traveled half a million miles through 55 countries on every continent, circling the globe nine times. Then he had this epic fight vs. a crazy boss monster that was basically a vampiric half-dragon 14th level ranger/7th level assassin. He tried to solo it, which was a big mistake, because that boss was a total badass. Yeah. It didn't end well.
So, after he weaned himself off the pain killers, Ferguson retired from that and looked for something less dangerous. He settled in Seattle where everyone is an aspiring game designer, so he claimed the same in an effort to fit in. You’d routinely see him playing games at Wandering Havoc. But then something funny happened…people believed he was actually a game designer.
His 14 games are in 68 countries, so people actually buy them, which is pretty cool because now he can afford the high-end ramen. The mail lady and grocery store checkout girl both know him by name, so he has at least two diehard fans. And his mom gets his name right half the time. So that's like two and a half, which is more girls than would talk to him in middle school, so his life is improving. We’ve invited him to come show us what he’s been so busy doing on International Tabletop Day, so come join in the fun.
