    International Tabletop Day 2017! (Beginner Friendly Event)
    ... See MoreSee Less

    Join us for International Tabletop Day 2017! This will be a fun day filled with board games, raffle prizes, some promo-giveaways, and some fun casual competitions. For our regular attendees you'll notice that International Tabletop Day will be very similar to our Thursday evening events - totally beginner friendly, and very relaxed. As usual feel free to bring any game you want to play, or you can play something from the games library. If you're keen to get a specific game to the table please post in the comments! Promos We've got some AsmOPlay promos and some ITTD promos to give away during the day - these will be periodically throughout the day. Competitions: TBA Cost for this event is $2 which will be collected upon your entry to the venue. This $2 goes towards supporting the venue, and adding new games to the library. If you wish to donate additional money to the venue please feel free. Reminder all events for this Meetup are age 18+ ! It is standard that anyone who teaches or brings a game will run through rules before playing so even if you're not familiar with the games we play, just let the person teaching the game know your skill level and the players will all chip in to help you out. We are a friendly and non-competitive group, and this is reinforced through the Code of Conduct we abide by. Hope to see you there! - Teena, and your event hosts Sammi, Lewin, Ryan, and Blair! Please Note: Due to the space and tendency for this event to bring a lot of new players we do not play games such as Werewolf, Avalon, Cards Against Humanity, or Secret Hitler as these games can be disruptive/loud which makes the teaching of other games very difficult in the same space and also may end up in behaviour that goes against the Code of Conduct of the group.

    All good things come to an end.

    With that today we announce that due to the landlord wanting the building back The Games Den's last day of trading in surry hills will be May the 4th.

    We would like to thank everyone that made this place awesome.

    The Good news is we will still be around online and can still get you sweet sweet deals and prices on all the games you love but we will no longer have a store front in surry hills.

    Our last big event and good bye party will be this Saturday -

    International Tabletop Day -

    As well as having a store full of friendly people and games we will also have lots of prizes and discounts going on.

    So come join us to remember the great times we have all shared this Saturday.
