Dave Arneson Game Day 2019 is Today - Part 1: Welcome to the Party!

Dave Arneson Game Day 2019 is today! This is what we have been working towards all week! We have some great things in store today. Make sure you sign up to our Facebook Event.

Also, keep up to date with our discussion at The Comeback Inn with the Official Dave Arneson GameDay Thread.

What is Dave Arneson Game Day?

Dave Arneson Game Day is celebrated on Dave Arneson's birthday, October 1st every year. This tradition started after the D&D Co-Creator passed away in 2009. It started with gaming events run by Dave's friends in Minnesota and groups of fans in New York and elsewhere in the USA. Gradually it grew into a world wide event.

Dave Arneson Game Day is a celebration of D&D, the love for gaming that Dave Arneson stood for and everything that the hobby we share

Do We Need Dave Arneson Game Day?

Are you kidding me? If you love gaming, do you need an excuse to celebrate our passion?

What Dave Arneson Game Day is Not

This is a day where we show our love for the hobby. It is not about using the legacy of Dave Arneson to attack other game designers or fans or airing grievances. It is also not about telling people they are playing the wrong edition or playing the game in the wrong way. Let us come together as gamers and focus on what we have in common instead of the things that divide us. I think it is what Dave would have liked.

How do You Participate?

Check out the links above. Run games for your friends. Post online about gaming. Make sure you share what you do with us here!

  1. Well, it is now 21:30 on 1OCT19, and my computer is finally connecting me to the Dave Arneson Game Day event. I have seen announcements that it would be happening today for several weeks, but I have never been able to get connected until now, when it is pretty-well over. While I have been having nothing but trouble getting connected, it looks like you guys had a good time today. Best wishes to you all. Maybe next year I can find a local group with which to celebrate. This year I spent picking apples and carrying concrete blocks - fun, fun, fun! Happy Birthday, DLA
