JustUs Productions, the business organization behind the MACE series of gaming conventions and game days, is a company born of a love of a hobby – tabletop games. It is a business owned by Jeff and Karen Smith. Since 1996, JustUs has been involved in running gaming events in the Carolinas, from ROC 96.5 to MACE. In 2000, Ron McClung joined the team to organize the gaming events, adding his talents of organizing and programming to help bring the MACE series of events to what they are today.

We at Justus Productions pride ourselves in presenting our attendees with the best gaming events the Carolinas have to offer. Our events are about one thing – everyone having fun. We don’t try to be the biggest gaming event in the region, but we try to be the best.  Quality over quantity in part of our mission statement.

Our primary events are the MACE events, which are MACE, MACE West, and mini-mace game days as well as our Club MACE vacation opportunities (cruises and all-inclusive resort trips).  We also support smaller game day events run by associates and friends through the micro-mace program.  We have recently been working with local fandom cons to run their gaming tracks, and these are our Client events.  Currently we are working with ConCarolinas in Charlotte as a client event, but areopen to more if the timing is right and we are available.  If you are an organizer of a convention and are interested in our gaming services, you can contact to discuss it.  Our time and resources are limited but we will at least talk it over with you.

There is a plethora of information about us, our events and what we do at them on this web site.  Use the menu above to navigate that information.  For quick access, use the “I want to..?” menu above to quickly navigate the more common functions of our website.
