Vendor Spotlight 2019

Meta-Games has been in the gaming business since 1997. We started off in a hole in the wall spot off Chestnut Expressway and through many moves and renovations ended up where we are today with thousands of square feet dedicated specifically to gaming. Meta-Games was built on Magic: the Gathering in the early days and while MTG is still a strong focus, we’re happy to provide our community with a large assortment of board games, tabletop miniature games, roleplaying games, and other collectible card games. We also have pinball! We stock a wide variety of games and gaming accessories and employ a staff that can tell you how most of our products are played (we miss out playing a few every now and then).

Our calendar is full of regularly scheduled events that happen weekly for a variety of our games but we also host larger specialty events on occasion. Stop by, follow us online at or Meta-Games Unlimited on Facebook or give us a call at 417-881-9390 and we are happy to help you with all your gaming needs.

Playco Games makes playable tabletop games for you, your kids, your friends, your granddad, your siblings, your pool boy, your gardener, your neighbor, your drunk aunt, your parents, your pets… nope, not so much your pets, but you get the idea. (Although, what an interesting thought… )

We are a small board game publishing company located in Springfield, MO, run by owner Mike Needham and his trusty sidekick Deanna. Playco Games has 3 successfully funded Kickstarter projects under our belt and all of those tabletop games are currently available at

  • Civicus Dice Game
  • Danger! Danger! Dinosaur
  • Epic Monster Tea Party

We’ll have all of those games with us at Moon City Con plus a couple of new things “in the works” to show off! We can’t wait to meet everyone at the con and play a few games with all of you!

We are a company of gamers for gamers. We have been playing both board games and RPG’s for over 20 years and decide to turn our passion into a business. Our goal is to offer fellow gamers products at the lowest cost possible. We are a young company headquartered in Springfield MO that started as an online only retailer. We carry all the hottest new titles along with the old favorites. If it is in print, we can get it for you and will match the price of a certain giant online seller. Come see our store at  1740 S Glenstone Ave, Springfield, MO. And come see our booth at MoonCityCon 2019.

The Mixed Six is your soon-to-be favorite podcast about beer, board games, pop culture, and a little drunken philosophy. In each episode, the hosts drink six beers and cover six topics, ranging from the best 2-player board games to the three superheroes most likely to win a bake-off. Each beer is reviewed and rated based on a constantly changing rating system, and topics become more substantive as the hosts consume more beer.

The Mixed Six is hosted by game developers and long-time gamers, Caleb Stokes, Spencer Harris, and Ross Payton. Caleb is the owner of Hebanon Games and co-owner of Fowl Mouth Games, and has published a number of successful RPGs, including his most recent book which raised over $70,000 on Kickstarter, Red Markets. Spencer is a co-owner of Fowl Mouth Games and, along with Caleb, is in the final stages of development on Party Fowl: The Game, to be kickstarted in the summer of 2018. And Producer Ross is the founder of the wildly popular actual play podcast, RPPR (Roleplaying Public Radio) and author of several acclaimed RPGs.
