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
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 a smaller blue ball.
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.
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?
Freedom Williams of 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'”.
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 Game Nights 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 "Dan’s Way" TournamentDan of the MGC has created a way to play Magic where both players use the same set of old school Magic cards, and you get to play like it’s 1994 all over again… without the crazy power some of those cards can have. Not just is it a really fun format, it’s a great way to learn Magic if you’ve never played before! Our friends at Slypatch Gaming will be on hand to help run this one, and we’ll have some fun prizes for anyone trying their hand at it!
MTG Kaldheim Draft
It’s getting cold in here! On Saturday, play with the latest Magic: The Gathering set to use SNOW, Kaldheim! Draft your deck and play it to get out of your pod! If you need help, our friends at Slypatch Gaming will be on hand to help first-time drafters! Winners will get additional packs of Kaldheim to keep!
Orbitor 1 TournamentAt some point during the day, we’re going to head to the final release from the early days of Stern Pinball, and everyone is going to take a crack at this crazy game! Not sure exactly when this will fit in, but we’ll do it, and the winner will receive a fun planet-like play ball!
We’re changing up the way you play pinball! With different challenges – like avoiding a certain target or the game will tilt, playing with only one hand, playing with 2/3rd of the playfield obscured, not being able to see the DMD until the end, crazy flippers, and even various weird contraptions, it’s a new challenge every time! You’ll team up with four people, and at 2pm, the top winners in each category will be declared! (And then we’ll put the games back to normal 😉 )
Pinball Power PackThe MGC has been collecting an epic set of pinball machines to share! We’re planning to bring the games you don’t see often, as many of these had production runs of under 1000 games! Our line up is anticipated to include Full Throttle (2015), 3 Coins (1962), Viper Night Drivin’ (1998), Big Buck Hunter (2009), Speedway (1948), Rob Zombie (2016), Orbitor 1 (1982), Alvin G Soccer Ball (1991), WWF Royal Rumble (1994), Rollergames (1990), Spanish Eyes (1971), Solar City (1977), Caribbean Cruise (1989), the Mandalorian (2021) and of course, the game that features C+C Music Factory, Lethal Weapon 3 (1992)!
The Mandalorian PinballYou’ve seen the show, now play the pin! This is the way! >Seriously, who doesn’t want to be a galactic bounty hunter in any way, shape or form. Well, here’s a brand new way to do just that. Stern hit hyperspace and is planning to have a Premium preview to the show via Kingpin Games. Be ahead of the pack and claim your bounty hunting accolades by being one of the first to play this brand new pinball based on the wildly successful Mandalorian show on Disney+.
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. Things get juicy in this frenetic fruit-flavored fun-filled game. If you get lucky, you might handle the largest stack that scores the win.
