The Free RPG Day was started in 2007, following the model of the Free Comic Book Day (an annual event since 2002). It is a promotional effort of the North American RPG Industry. Publishers sponsor free material (e.g. quick start rules, adventure modules) to be handed out by retailers.

RPGgeek only went live after the third event in 2009, so from 2010 onwards we have some discussion about it. For the first years, however, the geeklist entries below are a bit sparse... If I've missed any threads or whatever, please add them! Also, feel free to fill in personal memories or whatever comes to mind.

For almost every year we have both geeklists and series collecting the products that were included. I admit I'm still not sure which format is better suited for this kind of item grouping.

For the German-language equivalent, see Gratisrollenspieltag metalist.

June 23rd, 2007 - the very first event. If you'd like to know how it came about, read the Interview with Aldo Ghiozzi, organizer of Free RPG Day.
