Whether you’re new to Tabletop or just want to have a quick, casual game with some friends on a whim, the Free to Play tables are perfect for you!  These tables are reserved for casual games that we are loaning out to our attendees to enjoy (see the above list).  You’re also welcome to bring one of your own games.  Seating is on a first come, first seated basis.  We will not be taking reservations for the Free To Play tables and anyone hosting large games such as Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, Twilight Imperium, WarHammer, etc. will not be allowed to set up on these tables.

If you want to play a game that could take more than a few hours or you already have a group of 4+, please complete the Table Reservation form.

Free To Play tables will give new players the opportunity to familiarize themselves with different games without being thrown into the deep end from the start.  Or, experienced players may get the chance to try something new without the stress of competition.  Not enjoying the game you’re playing?  No problem!  Just grab a different one from the shelf.

Not sure where to start?  We’ll be providing “Game Menus” to help you select a game based on playstyle, genre, and game mechanics.  Volunteers and Staff will be around to help you if you get stuck and Industry Representatives are just a few feet away to offer some great advice too!
