MACE East 2016

MACE on NC Coast!

Hilton Wilmington Riverside

Wilmington, NC

MACE East is a brain child of Jeff and Ron and has been on their “to-do” list for a while.  They have always wanted to have a con on the E#ast side of the state and Wilmington seemed a logical place.  Then, in 2014, the idea to have gaming on the battleship popped in their heads and they started exploring the possibilities.  In May of 2015, they did a site survey and despite a lot of logistic challenges, they decided to go ahead and try it for at least one year.  MACE East was born.

Child Policy

Children under 8 get in free. Ages 8 to 11 get in with a discount. See Registration for exact prices. All children under 18 must be accompanied to the event by a parent. MACE and JustUs Productions are not responsible for any child under 18 unaccompanied.

All our games have an manufacturer’s age recommendation.  The parent should make an effort inform themselves of those recommendations for each game they sign a child up for. Our policy is unless the game is specifically geared for kids, it is marked with a minimum rating of PG, meaning parental guidance suggested.  Part of that guidance is being informed of what games you are signing your child up for.  If your child is under the recommended age, we encourage the parent to be present at the game session in question.

Food Policy

MACE encourages its attendees to take advantage of the Grinning Goblin table side service all weekend. They have a wide variety of snacks, drinks and ordered food. However, MACE and JustUs Productions discourages attendees from bringing in outside meals and drinks, as it is against our agreement with the hotel.

MACE uses the gaming schedule system called OGRe (Online Gaming Registration) to allow you see what is scheduled, sign up for what is scheduled and also get an idea of what kinds of games will be there for pick up. However do not let that fool you. We also have a room dedicated to pick up board and card games and have a extensive game library for you to choose from.
