Tabletop Day – The Twitter Experience

3 May

During Easter Holiday we had “International Tabletop Games Day”. It was inspired by Wil Wheaton’s YouTube Show “TableTop” in which he demonstrates how to play a variety of board games with various celebrities.

To see what everyone was doing, they asked everyone to “hashtag” photos and so on. Hashtagging is basically a thing, and as I’ve discovered, Twitter isn’t so popular with you guys, so here’s what you missed … Continue reading
