It is that time of year when we prepare for our officer elections. All positions are open for nomination. If you are a Class I member, basically, you've paid for an annual membership for you or your family, then you are eligible to be nominated for any of our positions. If you think you'd like to help with the duties assigned to a position or know another member who might, this is the time to get the name on the election ballot. If you just want to know when we do the election, we vote in December at the Guild's annual meeting. You can check our Officer's page and contact any of the officers below to get an idea of what a position entails.

Anyone interested should email the current Guild Secretary/Scribe to formalize their nomination. Alternatively, you can do a nomination online during any of our business meetings prior to the election meeting in December.

About Meeple-a-thon

Meeple-a-thon is a 501(c)(3) charity gaming convention that supports Kansas City's at-risk community members. Meeple-a-thon was founded in the summer of 2017. At a young age, our founder became a member of the houseless community and quickly learned that houselessness and poverty can be a vicious cycle. Sleeping on couches when available, finding income, and basic means of survival became facts of daily survival that were almost impossible to escape. As an adult, our founder worked their way to financial security, but became committed to helping those less fortunate, and began building a team of like-minded individuals.

In Meeple-a-thon, our founders discovered a calling close to their hearts where they could put their passion for caring for others in their community to work. After participating in numerous charity gaming fundraisers for other causes, our founders took the idea and ran with it, creating Meeple-a-thon to help Kansas City's at risk and disenfranchised communities.

We started small, with a maximum capacity of 50 people, focusing on playing games with friends while supporting a small charity raffle as our primary fundraiser. Over time we've grown into a full-blown gaming convention, complete with a game library, tournaments in popular war games, card games and board games, and game-related classes.

Six years later, the call to help those in need is stronger than ever, and we are growing. Each year we partner with an affiliated 501(c)(3) charity to raise funds for causes that do the most good in Kansas City, with a focus on providing necessities for life and living. Every dollar spent at Meeple-a-thon goes directly to charity, supporting Kansas City's communities. This year we are proud to partner with Hillcrest Platte County's Youth Housing Program.

Among Us

Dear Fellow Adventurers,

I hope this message finds you in good health and high spirits. As we embark on exciting quests and delve into the realms of imagination through myriad Role Playing Games, it is important to exercise caution when arranging meetups with individuals we have yet to build a trusting relationship with.

While the gaming community is known for its inclusivity and camaraderie, it is vital to remember that safety should always be a top priority. I strongly recommend taking the following precautionary measures before joining sessions in private homes, or inviting strangers into your private homes, for gaming sessions.
