Free RPG Day is this Saturday!

Posted by WJWalton on Fri 17 of June, 2011 09:41 PDT
The title pretty much says it all - this Saturday, June 18th, is Free RPG Day, when RPG publishers offer great freebies to Friendly Local Game Stores, who in turn offer them to their customers free of charge.

Here are two things to remember when you head out to your FLGS for some gratis gaming goodies:

- Many stores have rules regarding how many free items you can take. This is to ensure that there is enough to go around for everyone. Please respect these rules, they are there to make Free RPG Day better for everyone.

- Someone (sorry, I don't remember who) suggested a $5 pledge - that is, if you go to a store to get some Free RPG Day swag, spend at least five dollars there, just to help out the good folks who bring you all of these wonderful games. Get some new dice or a dice bag, some minis, a magazine, or whatever catches your eye. If everyone who stopped in a store for some freebies spent five dollars while they were there, it would give our game stores a much-needed shot in the arm.


Speaking of special events designed to promote the RPG hobby - the next Read an RPG Book in Public Week is coming up in a little over a month! What better way to get some early practice than to read some of your shiny new free RPG books in public?
