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 want to stay current with tabletop gaming updates, consider joining our Facebook Group.
Tabletop gaming is available 3:00PM – 12:00AM on Friday, 10:00AM – 12:00AM on Saturday, and 11:00AM – 4:30PM 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. Player registration sheets for the daily games are posted each morning in Ballroom 3. The 2023 tabletop game schedule is available for download in two different formats: CSV and PDF.
Dungeons & Dragons Tournament
Our Dungeons & Dragons Tournament, introduced in 2021, returns Saturday, April 22, 2023 at 6:00PM! In this horror adventure, the heroes explore an insane asylum to prevent the arrival of a mindless god of madness. The winning team receives a set of D&D supplements from Nord Games.
This is an after-hours event but convention passes must be purchased during normal hours (Sat 10:00AM - 6:00PM). Characters are provided. Access to a D&D Player's Handbook is recommended. Seats are not reserved so arrive early to secure your seat. 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. You can find the 2023 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.
