D&D 4th Edition Worldwide Gameday Announced

DD4thEditionPlayersHandbook.jpgWizards of the Coast has announced a D&D 4th Edition Game Day at gaming and hobby stores across the world. The date: Saturday June 7th, 2008 - the day after the rumored official D&D release day (and the historic D-Day) when the 4th Edition Players Handbook [Amazon] is released in stores. Mark your calendars.

So far the details are tailored to store owners looking to get a Gameday kit, but that doesn't mean there aren't juicy bits. The day should be centered around an introductory adventure to partake with a few friends, as well as a introductory rule book (unfortunate there won't be any full-scale players handbooks given for free). Here's a list of the schwag that comes with the kit, some of which you should expect your Hobby Store should be tossing your way on June 7th:

"WHAT DOES THE EVENT KIT CONTAIN?
The kit is designed to support 30 players. You get:
  • 5 bags of miniatures and dice to run the adventure
  • 5 sets of 5 different character sheets for the adventure
  • 5 full color maps for the adventure
  • 5 copies of the launch event adventure Into the Shadowhaunt
  • Fun trivia events including Monster Charades, d20 Questions, 4th Edition Trivia and Dungeon Feud
  • D&D Miniatures event rules
  • Instructions on how to run a fun, action-packed 4th edition Game Day"

For more information see the official www.dndgameday.com website, which promises more updates as we get closer to June. The official D&D 4th Edition Players Handbook [Amazon] launches the new system Friday June 6th, 2008.
