Time to Be Determined Events
$5* MTG DraftsDraft the some of the recent, awesome Magic: The Gathering sets for JUST $5 if you’re a whole session ticket holder, or just $10 if you’re a single session holder! For your money, you’ll get three packs (generally, $12!) to create a 40 card deck with, and then face off against friends and foes alike to prove you’re the best mage around! Both Kaldheim and Zendikar Rising will be available for purchase and play!
Ben Heck’s Game-A-Rama
When Ben Heck says “I want to do something…” we say “YES!” What’s his Game-A-Rama all about? Your guess is as good as ours! Knowing his skill and penchant for the unique, this experience can only be what we would call Heck-A fun? Mind-Ben-ding fun? Heck-tacular!? No matter what you call it, you don’t want to miss it!
Biggest Balls Tournament Finals
After a qualifying round of pinball, the top 16 scores face off with an ever-increasing size of balls! 8 players will get knocked out playing Skee-Ball, and then Pop-A-Shot will again trim the field in half to four, with the final four having a wacky physical challenge to see who wins! Winner gets a giant golden yoga ball, while the runner up gets two smaller blue playground balls.
We’re not hitting each other…. except when you wallop your opponent with a roundhouse to their pinball pride. Don the gloves of pugilism to compete on games you are NOT supposed to wear boxing gloves while playing: pinball, arcade video games, Skee Ball and Pop-A-Shot. Sounds difficult? That’s the point.
C+C Music Factory
Wait, like the music group? The one that made us move and groove and everybody dance now?!
Yes. Nuff’ Said. No? OK, they’re known for songs like “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)“, “Here We Go (Let’s Rock & Roll)“, “Things That Make You Go Hmmm…“, “Just a Touch of Love“, and “Keep It Comin'”.
Dylan "Swoggle" PostlPlay Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game with a Wrestlemania performer at Game Nights Lock In! Former WWE Superstar and current ACW Wrestling trainer Dylan “Swoggle” Postl will be joining the party to play some games! Do you got what it takes to defeat the man who competed in a WeeLC match at Extreme Rules in Bust-A-Move or Skee Ball?
Jay Brand’s Pinball Olympics
Jay has crafted challenging ways to play pinball. Play while looking through the wrong end of binoculars? How about really long flippers that move in different directions? Each game has a unique component to it that everyone will love to hate and who knows, maybe you finally beat your partner at their favorite game. Limited field of view, new ways to interact with the games, and other obstacles to make the games more challenging for even those who have mastered them.
Kung Lao and the Scorpions
Watch what the actor behind Kung Lao, Anthony Marquez, does when he isn’t ripping out spines and defending the Earthrealm, it turns out he’s the frontman of his own band – Kung Lao and the Scorpions! Mixing Bruce Lee with Jon Bon Jovi, this is going to be an TOASTY show you don’t want to miss!
Lords of the Trident
With METAL so pure that only diamonds can scratch it (and even the diamonds get hurt and run away!), Lords of the Trident is here to melt your face with the most incredible metal mix of battle and bloodshed! Seriously, these guys are awesome, and you should check them out at the most metal website on Earth and join them as they make Friday night at GNLI the most metal night EVAR!
Mechanical Life Vein
This experimental video game rock group performs classic NES-era soundtracks alongside LIVE video game playing! At the mercy of their player will be playing the 1986 NES game Metroid, the band provides the soundtrack and effects like a malfunctioning NTSC 60hz sound chip! This is a performance you don’t want to miss!
MTG Kaldheim Draft
It’s getting cold in here! On Saturday, play with the latest Magic: The Gathering set to use SNOW, Kaldheim!

Tutti Frutti Face Off
Find your imperfect match in this game of fresh fruit and bruised egos. Get your hands on some plump plums or find that perfect set of melons. Clap together some coconuts, or split some peaches.
