NYCC 2023

Welcome to D&D in the big apple. We’re happy to help DMs and players from around the world to have a fun weekend playing games with friends. This show is coming up SOON!!! (Oct 12th to 15th) so things are going to move QUICKLY!!!

What does NYCC stand for? (New York Comic Con)

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 Thursday from 2pm-6pm (EDT). Slot 7 is Saturday 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.

For NYCC 2023 we will be using the following schedule (all times in Eastern Daylight Time):

Thursday (Oct 12th)Friday (Oct 13th)Saturday (Oct 14th)Sunday (Oct 15th)
Slot 1: 10am – 2pmSlot 4: 10am – 2pmSlot 7: 10am – 2pmSlot 10: 10am – 2pm
Slot 2: 2pm – 6pmSlot 5: 2pm – 6pmSlot 8: 2pm – 6pmSlot 11: 2pm – 6pm
Slot 3: 6pm – 10pmSlot 6: 6pm – 10pmSlot 9: 6pm – 10pm

We ask for a 4 slots of work and in return you will receive a full NYCC badge to enjoy in your free time. We have two hotel rooms. One will be for our 2 admins (Thomas and Les) and the other will be for DMs who are looking to put in a lot of time and are not local (think 7-8 slots). This is a local show so we’re of course looking at our local DMs first over bringing in peeps from out of town.

DM Registration is OPEN. Have at it. Thanks!!
