As someone who leans into screens for fourteen hours a day and doesn’t know what sunshine looks like unless it’s in a game, I can tell you screens are pretty awesome. They’re also a strain on your eyes, make you lose sleep, and yada yada. So, that’s why tabletop gaming is probably your best bet if you still want to play inside all day but without the sore eyes. You already knew that, but now I can tell you what you’ll win and how to get involved if you swing by Tabletop Freeplay.
 
Before I do that, just want to refresh you on the fact that Tabletop Freeplay is a huge board game library where you can pick out a game to play with your friends, or make a few new ones while trying out a new game.
 
And I just want to say more thing before I tell you about…I’m kidding. The facts:
Magic the Gathering $5,000 Tournament & All Weekend Tournaments
