Tea and Tabletop: Our Adventures at TCTC 2023

Tea and Tabletop: Our Adventures at TCTC 2023

The Terminal City Tabletop Convention has come and gone, but the memories will last forever! 

As one of the sponsors and volunteers on site, it was an honor to be part of such a fantastic event. From the moment we arrived, the energy was electric. People were buzzing with excitement, and it was contagious. It was clear that everyone was ready to dive into the world of board games, RPGs, and so many more!

As we arrived to set up our tea at the Adventure Dice booth, we couldn't help but notice the fantastic atmosphere around us. People were excitedly lined up out the door to check in at 9 am! It wasn't long until the sound of dice being rolled, the laughter of friends, and the chatter of people discussing their favorite games filled the air. It was a beautiful symphony of gaming goodness.

Our tea-pairing menu was a hit! We had a blast creating custom blends to pair perfectly with some of the convention's most popular games. 

Our creamy earl grey blend, One Earl Grey to Rule Them All, with malty, earthy, and citrus notes was the top favorite of the Con. The robust and bold flavor of the tea paired perfectly with the adventurous spirit of the day.

And, of course, we couldn't forget our signature chai blend, Hard Carry Chai, with spicy and sweet notes! The bold and complex flavor of the tea was a perfect choice for many to help keep them energized and focused for hours of strategic game play.

But it wasn't just about the tea. We were blown away by the creativity and passion of the local designers and publishers who showcased their work. Their hard work and imagination made each game offer a unique and unforgettable experience that left us wanting more.

As the convention went on, we had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people volunteering at the Used Marketplace. Over 700 LOTS of games were put up for sale by the community! That is over ~2100 games! It was incredible to watch the area go from drowning in games to empty over the two days and know that well-loved games would get new lives and bring more joy to new gamers. It was an incredible experience to be surrounded by people who shared our love for all things board game.

We want to give a special shout-out to the organizers and other volunteers who worked tirelessly to make this convention successful. From managing logistics to coordinating events, they did an outstanding job. We're grateful for their hard work and dedication to creating an unforgettable experience for all of us.

As the convention came to a close, we couldn't help but feel a little sad that it was all over. But at the same time, we were filled with gratitude and excitement for what will come. We're already looking forward to the next Terminal City Tabletop Convention and can't wait to see what new games, teas, and adventures await us.

Thank you again to everyone who made this weekend so memorable, and here's to many more years of gaming and tea!
