  • Secondhand Games Market

D&D Adventurers League

The D&D Adventurers League is an ongoing official campaign for Dungeons & Dragons, and always a staple of the Conquest Games Convention. DDAL uses the fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons rules, and features the Forgotten Realms setting. Players can use the fifth edition rules to create a first level character and bring that character to games anywhere D&D Adventurers League play is happening.

Come try out a snack-sized version at the market.

Goblin Errands

Presented by: ScarletSong

Scurrying between the tall shelves of arcane books and hiding amongst the washing from prying mage eyes, you and your band of Goblins have been sent by the elder Four-Thumb Anga on a great GOBLIN ERRAND to seek and “BORROW” the bits and bobs to throw a surprise party for your friend GrumbleFlub’s birthday. You have a day to find everything you need at the Tall People School of Magics and the Tall Magic People won’t mind a few things missing, surely.

This game of Goblin Errands by Martin Nerurkar and Sharkbomb Games is a playbook, d6 dice-pool system, beginner friendly, and full of weird voices and chaos.

Rating: PG 13

No peanut-based snacks at the table please.

Sign. A game about being understood

Sign: A Game about Being Understood

Presented by: Travis Hall

To be understood, we need to communicate. And communicating isn’t always easy.

Sign is a game for 4 to 7 players. It’s based on the true story of a language born in modern times from the hands of children. The history of Nicaraguan Sign Language is profound and powerful and human. We need stories like that; we should hold them close.

In Sign, you’ll play as kids on their first day of school. Together you’ll make new language through play.
