Welcome to fun & games at the Huntsville Comic & Pop Culture Expo! We love them so much that we have extended hours for the game room! All of our scheduled games are brought to you by our terrific volunteer Game Masters. If you have a favorite game and enjoy teaching others, please consider volunteering as a Game Master. You can earn many benefits, up to free admission to the convention! Game submissions are not yet open, so watch for updates here or our gaming Facebook Group.
Tabletop gaming is available 3:00 pm – 12:00 am on Friday, 10:00 am – 12:00 am on Saturday, and 11:00 am – 4:30 pm on Sunday. Most scheduled games align with two-hour time slots (i.e., even hours in duration); however, there are exceptions depending on the game. Game times and duration are clearly noted on the schedule when posted.
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. For an idea of the games available, last year's 2022 tabletop game schedule is still available for download in two different formats: CSV and PDF.
Dungeons & Dragons Tournament
Our Dungeons & Dragons Tournament, introduced in 2021, returns in 2023! Characters are provided. Access to a D&D Player's Handbook is recommended. Seats are not reserved. If curious of the format, you can purchase a copy of adventure from 2021, DC-PoA-KJ2108 The Needs of the Many, from the Dungeon Master's Guild. The tournament adventure from 2022 will eventually be available for purchase as well.
As mentioned above, we offer a play-to-win selection of games. The games are currently being collected but you can still find the 2022 Play-to-Win list here. 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.
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.
