High Point, North Carolina
With the attendance of around four hundred gamers, MACE easily ranks as one of the best organized gaming conventions on the circuit. Upon registration, con attendees were provided with the most legible gaming schedule that I’ve ever seen. No more having to carry around a magnifying glass to see what time that Axis and Allies game is starting. MACE also rates high for corporate sponsorship; in addition to a freebie table chock-full of sample games, there were donations from all of the major gaming companies for the charity auction (which raised $1,500 for the Reading Connection). All this plus a raffle for best player/gamemaster and special kid’s programming made for a solid weekend of gaming.
