Exhibit 97.1

I.            Purpose.
The Board of Directors (“Board”) of Allied Gaming & Entertainment Inc. (the “Company”) has adopted this Compensation Recoupment Policy (this “Policy”) in order to implement a mandatory clawback policy in the event of a Restatement in compliance with the Applicable Rules.  Any capitalized terms used, but not defined, in this Policy have the meanings set forth in Section X below.
II.            Covered Persons.
This Policy covers all persons who are Executive Officers at anytime during the Recovery Period for which Incentive-Based Compensation is received.  Incentive-Based Compensation shall not be recovered under this Policy to the extent received by any person before the date the person served as an Executive Officer.  Subsequent changes in an Executive Officer’s employment status, including retirement or termination of employment, do not affect the Company’s right to recover Incentive-Based Compensation pursuant to this Policy.
III.            Effective Date.
This Policy shall be effective as of October 2, 2023 (“Effective Date”) and shall apply to Incentive-Based Compensation that is received by any Executive Officer on or after the Effective Date as described in Section VI below.
IV.            Administration.
This Policy shall be administered by the Compensation Committee of the Board (the “Committee”), which shall make all determinations with respect to this Policy in its sole discretion; provided that this Policy shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with the requirements of the Applicable Rules.
V.            Recovery on a Restatement.

In the event that the Company is required to prepare a Restatement, the Company shall reasonably promptly recover from each Executive Officer the amount of any erroneously awarded Incentive-Based Compensation that is received by such Executive Officer during the Recovery Period.  The amount of erroneously received Incentive-Based Compensation will be the excess of the Incentive-Based Compensation received by the Executive Officer (whether in cash or shares) based on the erroneous data in the original financial statements over the Incentive-Based Compensation (whether in cash or in shares) that would have been received by the Executive Officer had such Incentive-Based Compensation been based on the restated results, without respect to any tax liabilities incurred or paid by the Executive Officer.

Without limiting the foregoing, for Incentive-Based Compensation based on the Company’s stock price or total shareholder return, where the amount of erroneously awarded compensation is not subject to mathematical recalculation directly from the information in the Restatement, (i) the amount of erroneously awarded compensation shall be based on the Company’s

reasonable estimate of the effect of the Restatement on the stock price or total shareholder return upon which the Incentive-Based Compensation was received and (ii) the Company shall maintain documentation of the determination of that reasonable estimate and provide such estimate to Nasdaq.

For purposes of this Policy, Incentive-Based Compensation will be deemed received in the Company’s fiscal period during which the Financial Reporting Measure applicable to the Incentive-Based Compensation award is attained, even if the payment or grant of the Incentive-Based Compensation occurs after the end of that period.

Recovery of any erroneously awarded compensation under this Policy is not dependent on fraud or misconduct by the Executive Officer in connection with a Restatement.

In addition to the foregoing, in the event that an Executive Officer fails to repay or reimburse erroneously awarded compensation that is subject to recovery, the Committee may require the Executive Officer to reimburse the Company for any and all expenses reasonably incurred (including legal fees) by the Company in recovering erroneously awarded compensation under this Policy from the Executive Officer.
VI.            Covered Incentive-Based Compensation.
This Policy shall apply to Incentive-Based Compensation that is received by any Executive Officer on or after the Effective Date that results from attainment of a Financial Reporting Measure based on or derived from financial information for any fiscal period ending on or after the Effective Date, including, for the avoidance of doubt, Incentive-Based Compensation that may have been approved, awarded, or granted to an Executive Officer on or before the Effective Date.
VII.            Exceptions to Policy.
No recovery of Incentive-Based Compensation shall be required if any of the following conditions are met and the Committee determines that, on such basis, recovery would be impracticable:

the direct expense paid to a third party to assist in enforcing this Policy would exceed the amount to be recovered; provided that prior to making a determination that it would be impracticable to recover any Incentive-Based Compensation based on the expense of enforcement, the Company shall (i) have made a reasonable attempt to recover the Incentive-Based Compensation, (ii) have documented such reasonable attempts to recover, and (iii) provide such documentation to Nasdaq;

recovery would violate home country law where that law was adopted prior to November 28, 2022; provided that prior to making a determination that it would be impracticable to recover any Incentive-Based Compensation based on violation of home country law, the Company shall (i) have obtained an opinion of home country counsel, acceptable to the Nasdaq, that recovery would result in such violation, and (ii) provide a copy of such opinion to the Nasdaq; or

recovery would likely cause an otherwise tax-qualified retirement plan, under which benefits are broadly available to employees, to fail to meet the requirements of Section 401(a)(13) or Section 411(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), and U.S. Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder.
VIII.                          Methods of Recovery.

In the event that the Committee determines that this Policy should apply, to the extent permitted by applicable law, the Company shall, as determined by the Committee in its sole discretion, take any such actions as it deems necessary or appropriate to recover Incentive-Based Compensation.  These actions may include, without limitation (and as applicable):

forfeit, reduce or cancel any Incentive-Based Compensation that has not been distributed or otherwise settled;

seek recovery of any Incentive-Based Compensation that was previously paid to the Executive Officer;

seek recovery of any gain realized on the vesting, exercise, settlement, sale, transfer, or other disposition of any Incentive-Based Compensation in the form of equity or equity-based awards;

offset, withhold, cancel or eliminate or cause to be forfeited any amount that could be paid or awarded to the Executive Officer after the date of determination;

recoup any amount in respect of Incentive-Based Compensation contributed to a plan that takes into account Incentive-Based Compensation (excluding certain tax-qualified plans, but including long-term disability, life insurance, supplemental executive retirement plans and deferred compensation plans, in each case to the extent permitted by applicable law, including Section 409A of the Code) and any earnings accrued to date on any such amount; and

take any other remedial and recovery action permitted by law, as determined by the Committee.
In addition, the Committee may authorize legal action for breach of fiduciary duty or other violation of law and take such other actions to enforce the Executive Officer’s obligations to the Company as the Committee deems appropriate.
IX.            Miscellaneous.

Public Disclosure.  The Company shall make all required disclosures and filings with the Regulators with respect to this Policy in accordance with the requirements of the Applicable Rules, and any other requirements applicable to the Company, including any disclosures required in connection with SEC filings.

No Indemnification.  The Company shall not indemnify any current or former Executive Officer against the loss of erroneously awarded compensation and shall not pay or reimburse any Executive Officer for premiums incurred or paid for any insurance policy to fund such Executive Officer’s potential recovery obligations.

No Substitution of Rights; Non-Exhaustive Rights.  Any right of recoupment under this Policy is in addition to, and not in lieu of, (i) any other remedies or rights of recoupment that may be available to the Company pursuant to any equity or equity-based incentive compensation agreement or plan or any successor plan thereto, or any other incentive plan of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or the terms of any similar policy or provision in any employment agreement, compensation agreement or arrangement, or similar agreement and (ii) any other legal remedies available to the Company.  In addition to recovery of compensation as provided for in this Policy, the Company may take any and all other actions as it deems necessary, appropriate and in the Company’s best interest, including termination of an

Executive Officer’s employment and initiation of legal action against an Executive Officer, and nothing in this Policy limits the Company’s rights to take any such or other appropriate actions.

Governing Law. This Policy and all determinations made and actions taken pursuant hereto, to the extent not otherwise governed by mandatory provisions of the Applicable Rules, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to choice of law principles.  If any provision of this Policy shall be held illegal or invalid for any reason, such illegality or invalidity shall not affect the remaining parts of this Policy, but this Policy shall be construed and enforced as if the illegal or invalid provision had never been included in this Policy.

Amendment.  The Board may amend this Policy at any time for any reason, subject to any limitations under the Applicable Rules.
