Not content with just the East to Midwest, N3rd Street Gamers are going national next year
As the N3rd Street Gamers Eastern Conference Championship (slowly) gets underway in Atlantic City, New Jersey, once the stream came up, CEO John Fazio took the opportunity to reveal the organizer's plans for 2019.
It's time. After more than a year of planning, countless late nights, and entirely too much air travel, we are thrilled to finally share with you all what we've been working on.— Nerd Street Gamers (@nerdstgamers) December 21, 2018
