What we're about

Whether you're a casual or competitive gamer Charlotte Video Gamers Unite seeks to be a place where you can find out about any video gaming related events taking place in the Queen City. I try my best to post the events I'm aware of, but please let me know if you are aware of an event that is not posted here. I think gaming is a social experience and I want to help facilitate those experiences. I'm just sharing info and I don't actually get to attend each event I share, but if you see me at one, please say "Hi!"

Game ON!!

2K Tuesdays

Sports Connection

Good day! We will be starting a weekly gathering of 2K players. Come on out and have fun, get better at the game we all enjoy, and meet some new 2K players. I'd like to start a league where we play a couple of different players each week, just like if you joined a hoops league at the YMCA. There will be a schedule, playoffs and eventually ... a stream. Come check us out tomorrow.
