Meeple Cares

Meeple Cares

Our mission here at the Malted Meeple is to provide a great place – and a great way – to spend quality time with friends and family.

It is important to us that we accomplish that mission while being socially conscious. One way we do so is by supporting several local charities.



Our primary charity is Extra Life, which we support with several events each year.

Created in 2008, Extra Life is made up of gamers, raising money through gaming, in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
