Tabletop Gaming

Welcome to fun & games at the Huntsville Comic & Pop Culture Expo!

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 there are 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.

COVID-19 concerns and the Safer at Home order issued by the governor of Alabama impacts the games and activities we offer in 2021. The basic concepts are that 1) game components are not shared between individuals, 2) masks are worn, and 3) people are separated by an appropriate distance where possible. Therefore, we cannot host a majority of card and board games. We also cannot have play-to-win game selections. But all is not lost and there is fun to be had! We are hosting a library of games that can be sanitized between sessions and scheduled games that do not have shared components (especially role-playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons). If you are an experienced role-player, we ask you bring your own materials such as dice, rule books, pens, and paper.

Game Submissions

If you want to run a game, please submit as soon as possible. Keep in mind our COVID-19 guidelines and that games cannot have shared components between players. If you are new to

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 (within our COVID-19 guidelines), 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.
