Family & Children Gaming

A place for our next generation of gamers to get together, have fun, and learn the ropes.

We here at The Dice Tower Convention want the whole family to be involved in gaming. We’ve created a way to do that so parents share some of the responsibility in supervision while also creating a safe space for the younger ones!

The Family and Children Gaming Area

Located in the Curacao Rooms 5-8, this is a separate area of the convention space that will be used for both Children and Family gaming at different times. It will be supervised by the convention staff from 1 to 5 PM, and by the parents of the children. Children must be signed in and out of the space by a parent or guardian, and must be registered with a Child’s Badge to access the play area from 1 to 5 PM. No snacks, meals, drinks or other assistance will be given by volunteers in the children’s area. They will supervise game play only.

6+ Children’s Gaming

1pm to 5pm, Every Day

Children 6 and up with a child badge will be supervised by the convention and it’s parental volunteers (that’s you!). NOTE: This is not a babysitting service; you are responsible at all times for your child.

Family Gaming

8am to 12pm, Every Day

This will be unsupervised time for families to game together. A parent or guardian must be present and supervising in the family area at all times.

Remember that every parent of someone with a Child’s badge must volunteer in the children’s area. To be placed on the schedule, please contact Vernon Dickson (vernon.dickson@gmail.com).

Requirements for a Child Badge

In order for your child to receive a badge, a parent of the child must volunteer 4 hours in the Family and Children Gaming Area for the first child, with two additional hours required for each subsequent child:

  • 1st Child = 4 Volunteer Hours
  • 2nd Child = 6 Volunteer Hours
  • 3rd Child = 8 Volunteer Hours

Age Restrictions

A discounted badge at $45 is available for children ages 6 to 11. Space is limited, so only 60 children badges are available!

#1 Rule: All children under 17 in the Main Hall must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.

  • Children under 6 are NOT allowed in the Gaming Areas at any time.
  • Children under 11 will NOT be allowed in the Gaming Areas after 6PM.
  • Children under 14 will NOT be allowed in the Gaming Areas after 10PM.
