Unplug Yourself Play Area
A dedicated Unplug Yourself area allows visitors to experience games, learn to play, and more. TCG formal events will be happening for seasoned Pokémon and Magic: the Gathering players. Players can hold the new Pokémon Scarlet & Violet cards and enjoy the latest, newly released MtG cards.
A Catan play area will be part of Unplug Yourself and it’s specifically for those who want to learn how to play, challenge seasoned players including our current SA Champ and just have some fun while standing a chance to win great prizes. With over 10 million units sold worldwide and counting, Catan is a modern classic that continues to hit the gaming sweet spot. The board setup can be changed with every gameplay, creating new possibilities for out-strategizing opponents. Expansion sets add novelty and different themes. Since it first hit shelves in 1995, the game has appealed to a wide age group ranging from 9 to 90 years.
