Read an RPG Book in Public March 2023

March Forth (March 4) remembers the passing of E. Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons.

And Read an RPG Book in Public Week starts tomorrow, February 26. A tri-annual event started by “The Escapist.” He argues “annual events are just to far apart, miss it and you have to wait a whole year!”

I’m sure my readers, as regular as the may be, do this already, without a pseudo-high Holy Week. To them, Kudos! But sometimes it’s good to be able to say to someone that asks,  “Yes. Yes, I am reading an RPG book in public! It’s Read an RPG book in public week in remembrance of Gary Gygax, the co-creator of D&D.”

March 4 lands on a Saturday this year. So per the “liturgical calendar” written down by “The Escapist,” RaRPGBiP week is this week, starting February 26.

…on the weeks surrounding March 4, July 27, and October 1 (starting on the Sunday on or before and ending on the Saturday on or after).”

The next observances will celebrate the birthdays of co-creators Gygax and Dave Arneson, respectively.
