Avalon Hill is adventuring to Gen Con 2022!


Well met, gamers!

Excitement is growing as temperatures rise, because we know summer brings with it Gen Con. There’s nothing quite like the Gen Con experience: catching up with friends from all over the world, tasting all the delights offered by food trucks, and of course playing games 24-7 for four plus days straight. But this Year, Gen Con will be extra special for us as we’ll be attending as a part of the convention! That’s right – Avalon Hill will have our very own booth at Gen Con 2022 in Indianapolis, which takes place August 3rd-6th. You’ll be able to find us located in Hall C of the Indianapolis Convention Center, just south of the main Exhibit Hall.

We plan to have enough space to host multiple events, as well as show off the latest and greatest of what Avalon Hill has to offer. You’ll find minis and more on display from games such as HeroQuest, RISK: Shadow Forces, and more! What more, you ask? We have plenty of surprises for you all some of which will be teased a bit below. But first, let’s chat events!



We’ve been waiting for months now, but the 3rd Edition of Betrayal at House on the Hill is almost here! And Gen Con will be one of the first places where US fans will be able to play it. Delve into the latest version of the classic horror survival game with your fellow gamers to see if you can defeat the traitor – or become one yourself!



Come see what the buzz is around HeroQuest! This recently re-released title was one of the first dungeon crawlers, and we’ve brought it back to introduce a whole new generation to broad swords, gargoyles, pit traps, and more. We’ll have an introductory quest available for those who are eager to delve into the dungeon.



We’re ready to get the next legacy game in the RISK line in front of our fans, but how do you demo a game that you permanently change? You let the players keep it! Our RISK: Shadow Forces events are going to be unique in that only one ticket for each event will be available, and those who sign up will be asked to bring 2-4 friends.



Ah-ha! This looks like our first secret! We can’t spill all the beans just yet, but we can reveal that we’ll be offering the chance to play a prototype of an upcoming Euro-style board game set in the Forgotten Realms, one of the popular worlds of Dungeons & Dragons. This game is for 1-4 players and has been a hit with our design team. It’s nearly finished, enough that we’ll be able to reveal more information at Gen Con. But until then, this will be listed in the Events Catalog as a “Euro-Style Dungeons and Dragons Board Game.” We’ll be offering a few chances to play a full game, or you can swing by our booth to .

In the midst of all this excitement will be us – the Avalon Hill team! We’re most looking forward to getting to meet our fans, and we hope you stop by to say hi. We’ll even have RISK: Shadow Forces designer Craig Van Ness around to answer game questions or

So keep your eye on the Gen Con Events Catalog to join us – we’ll make sure to announce when the events are live via Twitter and Instagram as well. And then come August 3rd we hope you’ll join us in Indianapolis for an extended weekend of gaming delight!
