Gaming Under the Influence

C2E2 Gaming Zone

Happening all weekend at C2E2, Gaming Under the Influence (GUI) is an interactive, live streaming game show that pulls gamers out of their chairs and in to an all-or-nothing cage-match competition where the audience decides their fate. Normally touring in local Chicago bars, GUI doesn’t involve beer, but feel free to bring one of your own (if you’re of age!) Open to participants of all ages.

Stay tuned for more information and learn how you can be part of the action.

We’re working hard to curate the content and guests that will be appearing in Gaming Zone. Stay tuned to find out what will be in the Gaming Zone at C2E2 2019!
