TPIB: International Tabletop Day

So if you are a total geek like me, you know that Saturday, April 5 is International Tabletop Day. If you are not, let me introduce to Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day:

International Tabletop Day is a day to celebrate all things to do with tabletop games- not video games, not hand-held electronic games, but tabletop games
That can include Yu-Gi-Oh and Magic, Monopoly and Clue, Sorry and Candy Land. The sky is the limit- the only restraint is what you have on hand and the space you can utilize. 
BTW, this would be a wonderful way to use those games you get from International Gaming Day every year.
  
Tabletopday.com has some awesome downloadable content that you can use for your program as well, including these that I just may place around for fun:
