Penguicon 2017 will be held April 28-30, at the Westin Southfield Detroit Hotel!

Imagine your happy place, where all geeky interests are represented, explored, and respected. A place where open source software junkies, science fiction fans of all ages and backgrounds, makers, hackers, foodies, and anime buffs, come together in a hotel for a weekend and totally blow the roof off.

We go to panels, get free food and beer in our Hospitality Suite, go to ridiculously awesome room parties, and just hang out.

It's more than a thousand of your new best friends.

This is Penguicon.

The clattering roll of a handful of dice. The tantalizing aroma of a freshly shuffled deck. The sight of an intent gamer, pondering the next move and living to play another turn. The taste of vanquished Meeples as you devour your enemy–wait. What? Scratch that last one. This buffet of sensory experiences and more awaits at International Tabletop Day, coming soon to Vault of Midnight Detroit!

Plus a sale! Get 15% off any and all board games all day long! What? Yes!

Swing by Vault of Midnight Detroit to claim a $5 ticket for our special gaming event running from 2 pm to 6 pm right across the street at the Skillman Library! Those with tickets will receive a custom VoM D20 imbued with ancient discount magic. (Ask a staff member for details.) Our master Game Clerics will be available and ready to introduce you to a stack of the best games available!

Founded in 2013 by Internet Nerd Gurus Geek & Sundry, International Tabletop Day is a worldwide celebration of board-gaming goodness. Local purveyors of comics and games, Vault of Midnight, will be on hand to lend their sharp wit & board gaming expertise to all eager attendees. With a finely curated selection of board games in tow, they'll be teaching both classic and contemporary games for any age.

International Tabletop Day is a family friendly event for both board and card game initiates and curious noobs alike. This is a great opportunity to nerd out and scratch your tabletop itch, to introduce your non-gamer friends to an incredibly enriching and rewarding hobby, or to come see what all of this board game fuss is about in the first place.

1977 - 2017:: Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Original!

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

The world is coming undone. Imperial flags reign across the galaxy. The last remnants of the Old Republic are being swept away by the oppression and tyranny of the Empire.

But there is a Revolution underway: Rebel cells have begun to score small victories, a few brave Senators now stand against the corrupt charade of their fellows, and a galactic public is finally beginning to wake up.

The Empire overlooks what history has taught us:
Revolutions have always grown in bars, pubs, and cantinas.

Resist, strike back, make contact with the Alliance, arrange a ride across the stars, or just drown your woes in blue milk alongside a nefarious array of pilots, aliens, creatures, smugglers, bounty hunters, scoundrels, and thieves.

Be wary: an Imperial garrison has been stationed nearby, since the mysterious destruction of Jedha City. There are rumors of a stormtrooper landing party on a brutal search for missing droids. One such droid may be carrying Technical Data vital to the Rebellion...
