REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
What happens when you combine the skills and strategies of curling and table-top role playing games? Come find out at the Rocket City Curling Club's second annual DragonSpiel!
In this two-day funspiel, you’ll decide whether to curl as a Wizard, Cleric, Fighter or Rogue, and you’ll receive a limited number of spells or abilities to use during your matches. But choose wisely! You’ll only get to teleport that stone once!
$300 team registration fee / $75 individual registration fee
Limited to 20 TEAMS
Lunch and dinner provided
One-shot TTRPG’s to play between draws
And it really is about the curling... no RPG experience needed!
HOW IT WORKS
Each team will receive four decks of cards, one each for Wizards, Clerics, Rogues and Fighters. Each deck will have four cards with a different spell or ability.
You'll assign one deck to each of your teammates, and they'll use those spells while curling. But you can only use each spell or ability once during the bonspiel, so use them wisely. We'll send you the spell / ability list before the event so you can strategize. All teams will receive the same card decks.
Cosplay? If you're feeling it... absolutely! But try to avoid feathers and other materials that could fall on the ice.
Between draws, we'll feed you, you can buy drinks, and we'll have some games available. After the final draw, we have several DM's who will run some quick one-shot D&D games. Or play some crokinole. Or just chill.

We will be taking pre-orders for the shirts later in the year. We'll have them printed and waiting for you at DragonSpiel. We'll probably print a few extras for sale on site, but not very many.
We don't have a reserved block of rooms, but many visiting teams like to stay at the Hampton Inn in south Huntsville, only 6 minutes from the Ice Sports Center where the bonspiel is being held.
