MagicCon Chicago – 2024

Welcome to Avalon Hill in the windy city. Wait . . . no D&D?!! That’s right. A show just for Avalon Hill board games for our Magic-inclined crew. We’re happy to help facilitate this event for those who want something a little different than our usual fare. This show is coming up EXTREMELY SOON!!! (Feb 23rd to 25th) so things are going to move AT LIGHTNING SPEED!!!

We’ll go over some basic terminology and then get right to the gathering of information.

  • Slot:  This is a numerical unit of time, or block, the event is built around. For example Slot 2 is Friday from 2pm-6pm (CST). Slot 7 is Sunday from 10am-2pm. Using these blocks lets us align our schedule to make it easier for players to play in multiple events without things overlapping and conflicting. Please note that slots are back-to-back, though we will make sure you’re able to take breaks as needed.

For the MCC we will be using the following schedule (all times Central Standard Time):

Friday (Feb 23rd)Saturday (Feb 24th)Sunday (Feb 25th)
Slot 1: 10am – 2pmSlot 4: 10am – 2pmSlot 7: 10am – 2pm
Slot 2: 2pm – 6pmSlot 5: 2pm – 6pmSlot 8: 2pm – 6pm
Slot 3: 6pm – 10pmSlot 6: 6pm – 10pm
