Games Day involves several indoor activities families and friends can enjoy. Bad weather cannot stop this holiday. It is also a way to understand different cultures by trying out popular foreign games.

The History of Games Day:

In 1975, a British company called Games Workshop decided to organize a gaming convention. They are a manufacturer of miniature war games. Accomplishing the feat was not easy, as the schedule got pushed back. It became a reality in Seymour Hall, London. On December 20, 1975, the first Games Day event was born.

The event is regularly after that. Then the celebration spread to the United States, Canada, France, and the Netherlands. The featured games evolved from board games to role-playing games, tactical card games, and video console games.
