What we're about

Welcome to Charlotte Nerds and Gamers, North Carolina's largest nerdy meetup group! Check out our Discord and other group links here: CltN&G Linktree

Since our creation in 2017, we've had a goal of creating lasting friendships, supporting local businesses, and having fun! We are an INCLUSIVE group of folks who accept everyone regardless of who they are, where they're from, who they love, what they look like, how old they are and everything in between! We just love meeting people! We strive to make sure you feel welcomed, included, appreciated and are having a great time.

In addition to the meets with the overall group, we have 3 sub-groups that focus on specific groups of people or interests, all with their own dedicated events!

  1. Ladylike - A group dedicated to the women of CltN&G, Including female born, Trans, Non-binary and gender fluid folks!

  2. CltN&G Pride- A group of Nerds and Gamers who are part of the LGBTQ+ community and our allies.

  3. Charlotte Escape Room Fans- Once a separate group of it's own, it is now a sub-group dedicated to those who love escape rooms, whether its your first time or 100th.

    Meetups are not limited to playing video games, but also many other random adventures such as movies, board games, escape rooms, laser tag, theme parks, hiking adventures, eating out, and much, much more!

Welcome again to the group and we hope to meet you soon at our next event!

Murder Mystery at the Circus (Dinner Included)

Steele Creek


Come all to the greatest murder....ehrmm....show on earth! Join us for a night of mystery as we solve a murder right here in our very own circus show!

How we'll play
You will be assigned a role ahead of time. Please dress up in costume to match your new persona and make the night even more fun/mysterious! We will be using a box murder mystery set i've purchased and I will be your ringmaster for the evening, guiding you though the game till we figure out who is the killer! (Imagine an interactive version of clue). Your roles are scripted, but you can act and play along as you'd like! It's more fun that way anyway! ;)

What's included in the price?
I've charged for this event to have funds for provided food/snacks as well as a ton of decor to immerse us in the world of the circus that will be taking place. If I don't spend the full amount for each person, I will refund a portion back. The $35.00 is an estimate on things. Once I start purchasing goods for the party, which could be a couple weeks ahead, there will be no refunds unfortunately unless we are able to find a replacement.

What's for dinner?
To make it easy, I will be ordering some pizza and breadsticks, but plan to provide pasta salad, meatballs, meat/cheese tray, veggie tray, cupcakes, drinks (including one alcoholic option), and possibly more! If you need a vegetarian or other option, please let me know and we can figure out something for you. =)

I plan on holding this at my house in the Steele creek area. I'll send out instructions for parking and other important info closer time including the address if you need it.

Following the game, we are free to play board games and other things!

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Luck Factory Games Monthly Meet

Luck Factory Games

Hello Everyone,

Luck factory games at Gibson Mill in Concord is hosting monthly board game events for the group up at their brand new board game café! The owner, Alison and Nick, will be heading up these meets for us! They have a wonderful place to play board games, make friends and have tons of fun!

About the Cafe
With a small entry fee of $5, you are able to play over 1000 board games that they have available! On top of that, they offer wonderful food and drinks to enjoy as well. It is a great place to meet people and play board games! You can check out their details and food options on the link below!

Getting there
When you enter the main entrance of Gibson mill, go to the parking lot to the left and the café is located on the bottom floor (down the hill). There are steps to go down or an elevator if you go over the bridge to the top floor and take it down.

Meet Details
When you get to Luck Factory, make sure to mention you’re with Charlotte Nerds & Gamers, give them your name, and they'll get you all set up and direct you to where the group is at.

Please note: although we are listed as hosts, it doesn't necessarily mean the hosts will be there. LFG as whole is running the meet for us and can help with anything that comes up as far as their café and games. If something happens on a group standpoint, please DM me and I will do my best to help! Generally there are 1-2 organizers there anyway, but you'll just need to coordinate with other members to get a game going! It's a different situation than normal, so I wanted to make sure you all had that expectation.

Thanks and see you at Luck Factory!
