International Tabletop Day

Proud Lion International Tabletop Day

International Tabletop Day is an annual event celebrating tabletop gaming. People are encouraged to play more games, anywhere they can, and invite others to join in. For more information about Tabletop Day, check out the official website at https://www.tabletopday.com/.

Every year, Proud Lion puts on an all-day event and invites players of all ages to join us. We run a variety of both free and ticketed games throughout the day, as well as offering general games libraries for participants to try out something new. In the evening we present [Gather Your] Party, a chance to have some food and fun with special exhibition and party games. We also run a Tabletop Prize Draw where we give away prizes ranging from promotional items to full games!

Players will need to bring at least two basic action cards and basic action dice. All character cards and dice will be provided.

Flight Path Games

One area of the play space will be set aside for open play flight path games. We'll bring three space mats and one grass mat for players to have a game of Star Wars X-Wing, Star Trek Attack Wing, or D&D Attack Wing. Feel free to organise time on the tables with other players attending on the Facebook event. This section will be open from 12pm until 6pm.

Keep an eye on the horizon, you have no idea what may be stomping across the beach...

Tabletop team quiz

Get together with a team of up to four people to take part in a quiz centred around the theme of the day: tabletop games!

Exhibition Game - Star Wars X-Wing: A Race in Space

Join us for the return of our MarioKart-style X-Wing race! Be the first to get your ship around our custom track. Careful not to go off the edge, speed over every boost you can, and make sure you grab those power-ups along the way!

This event starts at 7pm, and will have up to 6 spaces available. Players will need to bring a single small X-Wing ship with no upgrades (pilot abilities will not be used) and the relevant manoeuvre dial.

Exhibition Game - Star Trek Attack Wing: Call to Arms

Take part in a cooperative custom mission for Star Trek Attack Wing! You and your allies will be working together to take down the DS9 before it destroys you all.

This game has up to six spaces available and will take place at 7pm at [Gather Your] Party! Players are advised to read the rule sheet (available here) for special rules, including fleet building requirements.

Exhibition Game - Unlock Challenge

All three scenarios from the fantastic new Unlock game, all in one evening! Take the challenge to complete any - or all - of the tabletop escape room game missions. Each scenario will be run with 6 spaces available, and one player from each challenge will be randomly selected to take home a copy of Unlock: The Elite!

Unlock: The Formula, 7pm

Unlock: Squeek & Sausage, 9pm

Unlock: The Island of Doctor Goorse, 10:30pm

Please note: due to the nature of this game and the extra prize support, these challenges require an additional ticket to play. Each mission is £6 per person, or £15 if you wish to play all three. You must have a ticket to [Gather Your] Party to participate (not included).

Exhibition Game - Codenames Challenge

Can you and your team be the fastest spymasters? Test yourselves with our one-team variant of Codenames and Codenames Pictures! As in a normal game of Codenames, you and your team will be trying to find all your spies in the field, but this time there are no opponents - just a ticking clock. If you win, record your time and see who makes the best time! Teams can attempt both standard Codenames and Codenames Pictures. All participants will also get some Codenames promo items!

Party Games

The details for these games will be confirmed soon.
