Games Day comes on the 20th day of December each year. It is the day to play your favorite games. Games Day is created to get you to break from daily life stress. As we grow on, playing games are the perfect way to kick back, to take some relaxation from everyday work stress, and to have some fun with your family friends. Just imagine when was the last day you sat with your family friends and having fun. If you can’t remember, then games day is the perfect day to have a good time with your family friends.

What kind of games do you most enjoy, board games, card games, or maybe video games? Whatever game is your favorite, this is the day to play it and have some fun for a change! After all, what better a break could you take from the stresses of everyday life than to partake in Games Day?

As generation upon would a generation of people the world over would agree, playing games is a great way to just kick back, relax, and have some fun with your family and friends.

Games Day is a gaming convention that takes place every year, with Games Workshop sponsoring the event. It has been running since 1975! Although the convention itself takes place in Birmingham, UK, this does not mean you cannot get involved if you live elsewhere. After all, the best way to honor Games Day is by playing some games, right? This is something that we all enjoy, no matter our culture or where we live, and so really Games Day is a day that brings us all together.

Games Day was created by the British game production and retail company, Games Workshop, which started out producing more traditional games such as backgammon and later moved on to fantasy universe games, such as Warhammer.

This day of carefree whimsical frivolity was created rather abruptly in 1975 when another games convention that got canceled, and the gap thereby created needed to be filled.

The very first of these soon to become extremely popular events took place in London on December 20, 1975. In a very short period of time, these events really took the UK’s gaming community by storm and brought many people together, which did a great deal to build up the nation’s gaming scene. Of course, this style of convention quickly sprung up and became enormously popular in the US as well, and acts as a fantastic showcase both for gamers and their skills and the gaming industry.
