June Game Day at TableTop in OPKS. Details...

 

Free RPG Day

It's that time of year again! Free RPG Day is coming Saturday, June 18, 2016 to game stores all around the metro.

What is Free RPG Day, you ask? From their website:

Established in 2007, Free RPG Day works with participating hobby game retailers and RPG publishers to bring new and exclusive RPG quickstart rules and adventure modules into the hands of gamers.

Consumers WORLDWIDE will be able to grab brand new material for a variety of RPGs --- no overstock, retail-priced or dead product here. The goal of Free RPG Day is to inspire gamers to play a new RPG, which will in turn, create sales through local game stores. Use the retailer locator to find a participating store near you!

To support this event and our friendly local game stores, Guild members will be running games in the KC metro area. Please fill out this form to be a host and you will get the materials a week before the event!
