Meltdown Shopping Network: Tales from the Yawning Portal – Friday, March 24th | 3-7 PM PDT...
We are looking forward to spending time with the awesome D&D community around the country this year.
From the very beginning, Dungeons & Dragons players have traveled in droves to spend fantastic weekends together gaming at conventions. Hundreds of thousands of gamers participate in the myriad conventions each year and the numbers just keep growing.
In 2017, D&D is returning to officially support an eclectic mix of conventions around the country. We have great unique adventures ready to play with you and are excited to hear your questions in person instead of just on Twitter or Reddit. We’ll be running games, participating as panelists, and just hanging out talking to fans, so there will be ample opportunity to hear directly from the folks who make Dungeons & Dragons.
Many of these conventions will have a special event and/or exclusive adventure, so if you’re interested in unique D&D Adventurers League play, these events are the place to be!
Here’s a list of the conventions we’ll be attending in 2017 and a basic idea of what you can expect at each one:
