School is back in session. Whether you’re hitting the books, getting kids back into their routine, or just stuck behind the school bus in traffic, you need some time to unwind. Perhaps you can learn a new gaming hobby this weekend, or maybe you can school some scrubs in a tournament. Either way, we’ve got what you need.

Central Park Hall at Expo Square, 1701 S. Sandusky Ave., Tulsa
Join OKgamers at the Tulsa Mini Maker Faire! We’ll be there sharing the art of miniature figure painting with free paint and take sponsored by Dice Addiction Games. That’s right, you can paint a mini of your very own to take home with you. We’ll also be showing off a do-it-yourself arcade cabinet powered by a Raspberry Pi. If that’s not enough to pique your interest, we’ve got free Monster Energy swag bags to the first 50 attendees, and prizes from Papa John’s and TinyBuild to give away too! Don’t miss it. Learn more.
