Free Tabletop games

I wandered into a tabletop forum and discovered this thing that is apparently well known.

The website is https://boardgamegeek.com/.

I did a quick search and the site was linked a few times. But there was one thing that I completely missed. They are called Solitaire Print and Play contests. Basically 1-player table top games. Free. You have to sign up for the website and go to the “File” part of the game you want to print. It’s pdf and a lot of them need color printers.

Anyway, this would have been nice for millions of people who were quarantined with nothing to do. I feel it was a missed opportunity but no helping that now.

Thank goodness the same guy organizes the contests so it was easy to find.

I personally have my steam library for games. But if any of you are tabletop enthusiasts, I didn’t want you to miss this.

EDIT:

The most recent contest has taken place so that is why I’m updating this topic. Not to mention lockdowns are returning.

A lot of games were put on a google drive or somewhere else so I kept the game but I don’t want to link to a random link for you guys so I linked to their entry thread so you can decide for yourself.

Oh noooooooo. There is a character limit of 32,000 per post. I can only fit the 2020 contest in this post. I guess I’ll reply to this post with the previous contests and link to my own post.

Ewwwwww. Having a long list doesn’t look nice. I’ll try to pretty it up before I post the other contests.

2020 Contest

I re-edited the first post. It takes a long time to find, organize, and format all these tabletop games. Definitely not worth the time to do but HERE I GO!

Several Hours Later

Oh no. While copying and using the find/replace function some links had their address cut in half because they were too long…now I have to hit reply and click each link to see if they even work and edit later. And I did the same thing to all the contests I have in a txt file. Big oops that will take a long time to fix but I hope people are patient.:+1:

I think I’ll add the other contests throughout the months. It really took too much time just for the 2 contests. Hah!
