Game Shows

Games and Theory Celebrates 12 Years of Game Shows at ALL-CON!

What began in 2006 has grown beyond anything imagined!

The ALL-CON Game Show track was added in the sophomore year of the convention, way back in 2006. Returning vendors A Piece of the Action Collectibles brought daily Geek Match Game shows to the Sterling Hotel and introduced a lively new feature to your favorite convention. Over a decade later the tradition continues.

Group Captain of Games and Theory Cole Houston is proud to announce a whole new collection of game shows that offer a little something for everyone. And prizes, too!

This year the Game Shows track will see many returning favorites with popular themes like Game of Thrones, Star Wars, anime, comic books, and pop culture. ALL-CON's longest running game show, Don't Lose Your Geek Card, will have multiple incarnations again this year ("Classic" – general trivia, comic books, anime, Star Wars, and Disney).  In honor of the theme for 2017, you will not want to miss Scream! Time – the official horror movie and television trivia game show!  Plus Oooh! Oooh! Oooh!, the game show where everyone in the audience is a contestant, is back in the mix!

Would you like to play a game?
Be sure to arrive early to game shows for contestant selection if you want to test your knowledge and possibly take home some prizes!
