Get the lowdown about how to get a free game, accessory, or rules set on Free RPG Day. Wally Bahny fills you in on which publishers and stores are participating in this worldwide event.

Gamers, mark down June 18, 2011 on your calendars because that is Free RPG Day. You can get a free game, accessory, or rule set at your local participating game store, which you can find using the Free RPG Day Retailer Locator.

For this celebration, the following 20 game publishers have signed up to bring stores around the world nearly 100 free units per store. Check the Free RPG Day site to see which items the publishers are offering for the event.

Stores can participate in a variety of ways, including events based on or around RPGs and giving away these free units. The stores can choose how to give away each free unit, as long as they give one to each person who asks (until all of the units are gone).
