From Merriam-Webster Dictionary Online – Definition of CUDGEL: : a short heavy club. Examples of CUDGEL: A farmer armed with a cudgel drove us off his land. Origin of CUDGEL Middle English kuggel, from Old English cycgel; perhaps akin to Middle High German kugele ball. First Known Use: before 12th century.

MACE West is born of a demand by some Hickory region gamers who felt that the MACE concept would do well in Western North Carolinas area. Jeff worked with Clint and Jodie Black of Pinnacle Entertainment Group to organize a smaller 3-day event of gaming and fun. The concept was to be something like MACE, but smaller, but also a little larger than mini-mace.

For its first 3 years, MACE was held in Hickory until the host hotel was sold.  MACE West had to find a new home. JustUs went further west to Asheville in 2014 and found a great new home there.


MACE West 2017 will be host to a X-Wing Miniatures Tournament as well as Star Wars Armada Demos Friday night. Bring your X-Wing minis and compete with the best that MACE West has to offer. Win prizes! Demos and open play will continue Saturday and Sunday.
