Tabletop Gaming

We are expanding tabletop gaming in 2019 at the Huntsville Comic and Pop Culture Expo! Tabletop gaming has extended hours compared to other convention activities.

Games Available

Board, card, role-playing, and miniature strategy games are available to play for all ages and experience levels. We offer a game library from which attendees may check-out games to play as time allows and a play-to-win game selection (provided by our wonderful sponsors) from which lucky players get to take a fun game home. Additionally, there will be games hosted at specific times. These scheduled games depend on submissions by game enthusiasts who volunteer to host a game. If you have a game you love, please consider volunteering.

Game Volunteers

Tabletop gaming at the convention couldn’t be accomplished without the game volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to teach others great games. Are you friendly and passionate about a particular game or games? Then please consider becoming a volunteer. Beyond the appreciation of the convention staff, you can gain the following benefits:

  • Volunteering for 4 hours earns a free day pass
  • Volunteering for 8 hours earns a weekend pass
  • Volunteering for 12 hours earns a weekend pass and a convention t-shirt
Game Submissions

Game submissions for 2019 have closed. However, we hate to turn away any volunteers. To submit a game to the convention schedule, click the button below. We may be able to add it.

Play-to-Win Games

As mentioned above, we offer a play-to-win selection of games. The general idea is that you and your friends (including new friends you just met at the convention) check-out an interesting game from the play-to-win desk, play it, and then return it. Once returned, you have the option of entering into a drawing for the game or entering into our general drawing for prize support. We could not offer play-to-win games without our generous sponsors so please let them know you appreciate their support.

We currently have over 80 play-to-win games and the list continues to grow: 10 Minute Heist: The Wizard’s Tower; 8Bit Box; Adorable Pandaring; Aetherium; Arboretum; Bears; Before I Kill You, Mister Spy; Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig; Between Two Cities; Boss Monster; Boss Monster 2: The Next Level; Boss Monster: Rise of the Minibosses; Brawl; Bunny Kingdom; Button Men; Castellan; Castle Panic; Clank!; Countdown Action Edition; Crabs!; CrossTalk; Crystal Tiger Dice; Cursed Court; Darkness Comes Rattling; Deadwood Studios USA; Dragon Pets; Dragonwood; Early American Chrononauts; Falling; Forbidden Island; Front Line No Komrades; Get Lucky; Get Off My Land; Get the MacGuffin; Girl Genius Jagermonsters Poker Deck; Give Me The Brain; Gloom in Space; Heart of Crown; Hokkaido; Horizons; Jack the Ripper; Kill Doctor Lucky; King of Tokyo; Kings of Artifice; Kitten Klash; Lord of the Fries; Lost in R’lyeh; Meow; Merchants of Araby; Monster Match Game; Most Wanted; Munchkin Loot Letter; Murder of Crows; My Little Scythe; Nanofictionary; Nessos; One Deck Dungeon; Pairs; Pirate Fluxx; Quests of Valeria; Ren Faire; Reykholt; Ricochet Poker; Sailing Toward Osirirs; Shinobi; Showdown Icons; Spell Smashers; Splendor; Stuff And Nonsense; Sushi Go!; Tak; The Island of Doctor Lucky; The World Needs A Jetpack Unicorn; Tiny Epic Defenders; Tiny Epic Zombies; Unexploded Cow; UNLOCK!

Game Library

Our game library is provided by a local gamer, CRAIG GOODRICK. Craig has an extensive game library requiring 12 ft. of shelf-space so if you are looking for a game to play, we should have it! The process to play a library game is simple: you check-out a game from the game library desk and then return it once finished. Craig will be available to teach games as well, but his time may be limited by demand.
