Unplug from your computer, turn off your phone, and set down your controller -- it's time to sit at the table and game.
We are excited to announce our second annual Extra Life UNPLUGGED event will be held on Saturday, July 22, 2017, from 10 am to 10 pm at the Macon Country Club!
Extra Life UNPLUGGED focuses on the great times that can be had by getting together with friends, family, or even strangers and playing some of the great tabletop games that are available today. There will be miniature games, board games, card games, and anything in between available to be played. One of our main events will be a Magic: The Gathering tournament starting at 1 pm.
NEMO Gaming Group members will be providing an assortment of games to choose from and there will be multiple demos to help you find a new favorite game.
Last year, we kicked off our first ever Extra Life Unplugged event and it was a huge success! We had a great turnout for the Magic Tournament and a lot of people just showed up to play great board games.
Proceeds from Extra Life UNPLUGGED will help us make the Extra Life @ Macon Main event even more spectacular and go to help the MU Women and Children's Hospital in Columbia, Missouri. Last year, this event kicked off the year, helping Extra Life @ Macon to hit over $5,000 mark raised over the last 3 years.
The event is open to the whole family so games that are little off color -- Cards Against Humanity as one example -- won't be allowed. Outside of that, bring any game you want and have a great time, helping a worthy cause.
