Get to the Midwest Gaming Classic before it opens to experience some real treats! There are early tournaments such as Up To Par and Clock Chaos, Tom Taylor’s Open House where you can play more than 300 different arcade machines (all benefiting charity!) and even head to a special pre-show dinner with the founders of the event if you are a VIG. The show may not officially be open, but your experience can start Friday!
