What we're about

Charlotte Nerds and Gamers is a fun group to bring together all fellow Nerds and gamers out there in the Charlotte area. Meet ups are not limited to playing video games, but also many other random adventures such as escape rooms, theme parks, hiking adventures, eating out, and much, much more. I want to help bring together people with the same interests and do some really fun activities!

Upcoming events (3)



Lets go ride some rides! The park is open from 10AM-8PM. Tickets are $45 online but check around for any discounts you may be able to find! I believe parking is $15 if you purchase online and $20 if you pay at the gate. Of course if you’re a season pass holder you get all this free,lol. I'd recommend waiting closer time to purchase tickets in case I may need to move the dates of this with any potential weather issues. Please note that due to the rules of some attractions at Carowinds, you will not be able to bring bags in line and will have to get a locker for some attractions. Fury and Copperhead strike in particular do not have bins for your bags. Just a fair warning! We will meet in our usual spot at the rocking chairs in front of the big Carowinds sign at the north gate of the park. I will message my contact details the night before just in case. PLEASE make sure you RSVP only if you know you are attending so that others can join. Because of the challenges of keeping a group together at Carowinds, I’ve limited it to 20 people, so your empty rsvp may knock someone out of the meet that wanted to attend. See ya at the park!

Latta Plantation Picnic

Historic Latta Plantation

So I typically do a cookout in may for memorial day, but because May is a busy month, I'm doing a bit of a picnic instead earlier in the month. I figure we can walk to my favorite spot near the lake (2-3 mile hike through the woods) and picnic, play board games, hang out, etc. Bring some type of snack or picnic food (dips, drinks, chips, potato salad, desserts, etc. and any games you'd like! Oh and make sure you bring a chair or blanket or something to sit on. PLEASE READ: This will be at latta plantation park. Once you enter the park you will need to take the North Canoe access rd about a quarter of a mile on the right once you enter the park gates. I've inserted a link to the map. Once you arrive to the end, we will meet there and walk to the picnic spot. There was some confusion before on directions. If you use the address below it will take your further into the park than needed. I will provide my contact info before the event. In the case of bad weather this event may be cancelled. I will let you know if that happens. https://www.mecknc.gov/ParkandRec/StewardshipServices/Documents/Latta%20NP%20Brochure%202015.pdf Let me know if you have questions! -Shawn

Board Game Meetup

Red Clay Ciderworks

Hey everyone, It’s time for another board game meet! We'll be back at Red clay again for some cider and fun board gaming time. There will not be a food truck I don't think, however there will be a new food option at red clay itself coming up. I'll post a link to the menu when it comes closer time. Make sure to bring any board game you'd like! We will be playing in the back as usual. Go straight in, through the back door on the right and we'll be set up on the right side there. Make sure you update your RSVP if you are not able to attend as this meet will have a waitlist and I don't want no shows to knock others out that may have wanted to attend. Please be respectful of your fellow nerds! No shows are always recorded! I look forward to seeing you! Shawn
