Midwest GameFest Partners with Meeple-A-Thon

This year Midwest GameFest is partnering with Meeple-A-Thon, a charity benefitting Hillcrest Platte County's Young Adult Housing Program. Each year Meeple-A-Thon plays tabletop hobby games to bring in thousands of dollars to help displaced youth in the area. It's a great cause, and they've got a full slate of fun events to both participate in and watch live on Twitch. Check out our special Meeple-A-Thon event schedule for details on events, and our streaming schedule for details on live streams. And help make the world just a little bit brighter for someone by donating to Meeple-A-Thon this year.

Using the Meeple to Help Homeless People

Meeple-A-Thon is a 24 hour board game event that raises money for the homeless youth in Kansas City. We do this by partnering with Hillcrest Platte County, their Young Adult Housing Program, and YOU! This platform gives gamers a chance to make a difference in their community while gaming with friends, family, and local gaming guilds.

This year, we are proud to partner with Midwest Game Fest for this event! COVID-19 has effected all of us and we are excited to work with Midwest in 2020 to continue growing and supporting our cause.

Meeple-A-Thon 2020 will be our 4th annual event, and we could not be more excited! Since our kick off event in 2017, Meeple-A-Thon has grown exponentially into a community of board gamers eager to make a difference in the lives of the homeless and insecurely housed youth right here in Kansas City.
