The past four years, we have celebrated Geek and Sundry’s International TableTop Day. We’ve led up to the day by showcasing a game a day for 12 days, in the days leading up to the day itself: the 12 Days of TableTop Day. You may have noticed we haven’t done that this year, and that’s because, well, most of our games are currently either boxed up or loaned to others. There’s a longer story there, but for now, the games aren’t around for us to do much with them!
I certainly don’t want to do nothing for TableTop Day, however, and also want to give some thoughts on games for you to check out for the big day as well! Finally, the idea hit me.
Here are 12 games from my Amazon Wishlist, that I want to play but haven’t picked up yet! I had to dodge through the huge volume of expansions to games we already own, but here’s a good list of games that look interesting that we haven’t highlighted yet in previous years!
As made obvious by the title of this blog, David and I consider ourselves geeks (probably also nerds, but more geeks), but what does that really mean?

When thinking about definitions I figured a good place to start was to see what the dictionary had to say. I have come to discover that might not have been the best place to start. Continue reading
It’s that time again – International TableTop Day! This event started the same year that we started Comparative Geeks, and we started an annual tradition of the 12 Days of TableTop Day. We featured 12 games over 12 days before the big day – so at this point, there are 36 games we have recommended for play today!
If you missed this year’s game recommendations, you can find all of them on our Instagram – or you can read on after the jump for a bit more about each game! Hopefully today finds you playing one of these or many other games, together with old friends or new friends. You can find events near you on their website. In the words of Wil Wheaton – play more games!
