2023 Events (more info will be revealed as events are finalized – all times are Minnesota local time)

You wanted more events in 2023, and you got it! We’re also going to aim to facilitate group finding, especially on Friday: allowing you to make friends for the weekend!

Thursday, May 4, 2023:

7PM – A live Marvel Champions Monthly (MCM) Podcast Show at the Doubletree hotel: The MCM team will be recording a live show from the hotel. Stop by to help them out and ask any Marvel zingers!

Friday, May 5 (first official day of the con):

1PM – Match with Magneto: A group event where each tables’ outcome may effect the others!

4PM – An Epic Multiverse Event: This was the biggest request from the community, and we’re aiming to deliver!

7PM – Marvel Champions Mixer: Grab a drink (alcoholic or not) and play with someone from the Champions community who you haven’t played with before. This is the ideal time to swap playmats for signatures or complete challenge cards (challenge card details TBA)!

Saturday, May 6:

11AM – Con of Heroes 2023 Campaign: Join us for our yearly custom campaign event. This year includes three scenarios (down from four), thanks to 2022 community feedback. Mods and campaign cards will be provided as part of admission.

5PM – Group Photo: We’ll be taking a conwide group photo, so be sure to be around to be included! This was bumped up to Saturday from Sunday due to 2022 attendee feedback.

7PM – REDACTED: During this coarse and punny group event, the room will be taking on a classic Spidey foe. Hopefully the PA announcements that directly impact the scenario won’t be too rough or irritating!

Sunday, May 7:

10AM-Close – Play with a Host or Community Creator: Play with a Con host or a slew of community content creators in an open play day! Kids can attend the con for free this day and we’d love to see families enjoying this game together! Other non-Champions games will also be played throughout the day.

Shield HQ

Con of Heroes will be providing a table of assorted player and scenario cards, free of charge, for players to use. This is to ensure that everyone has a full experience, regardless of how much product you own.

Attendees can take these cards at will, return them, keep them throughout the weekend, or keep them after the con: the choice is yours. Card availability and stock will depend on how many people partake! Below is a sample of past SHIELD HQ offerings.


Attendees will be eligible to win prizes from our con raffles, including promos, a few full games, and other items!

Raffles will be called at 1PM, 3PM, 5PM, 7PM, and 9PM local time each day (excluding Sunday, which will only have 1PM and 3PM raffles due to the Gamezenter closing early). You must be present to claim your raffle. If you are not, we will re-enter your entry back into the raffle pool. Below is a sample of prior 2022 raffle prizes.
