Pajama Jammie Jam Pre-Con Kick-Off Party
Once the work has been done setting up the rooms and preparing for the big opening day, it's time for the ALL-CON Pre-Con ''Pajama Jammie Jam'' Pajama Party!

Wear your favorite footies or flannels (silkies are fine too as long as you are covered and decent), bring your morning-style mugs for coffee or cocoa and settle in for a 'lock-in' style* evening event! You can bring your favorite book or magazine if you just want to chill, or ALL-CON has arranged some unique activities that won't be offered at any other time during the convention! Don't wait to hear if the rumors are true!

Not comfortable wearing your 'jammies out in public? Consider throwing on a robe over your street clothes, and putting up your hair so you look like you're ready to settle in for the night. It's perfectly acceptable to ''party with your pants on''.

Come to the Pajama Party and be a part of what everybody is going to be whispering about all weekend long! *While ALL-CON is patterning this event after a classic lock-in, the doors will actually be open to come and go as you please.

ALL-CON in 60 Minutes

Thirteen years later All-Con is still going strong!  With over 350 different events crammed into a mere four days it is unlike any other convention in the DFW area!  That means you may just need some seasoned guides to help you get a grasp of just how much is happening and is at your disposal all weekend long!

The Rantcor Pit/The Rantcor Pit Live’s own Cole “JediCole” Houston and Eddie Medina are back (with a little help from The Talk Lord of the Sith himself, Darth Zach and show apprentice Stephen Fett) to introduce you to what lies in store at All-Con.  From lively discussion and Q&A with the audience to the first game show of the weekend, “You Can’t Win”!

Why Cosplay?

There have been studies on the psychology of why people dress up in costumes and take on different personas. The reasons vary from simple enjoyment of making costumes to complicated escapism. There have been articles released from psychologists like Dr. Ali Mattu to neuroscientists such as Dr. Paul Zehr. We will cover some of the reasons that have been discussed via these studies with a cosplay veteran of 27 years. She has participated in mascot work, in fursuits, as a stylist for cosplayers, talent manager for publications, done extensive photowork for national publications, has a degree in both Psychology and VIsual Communications. She spoken on behalf of the cosplay community in the news and with the media and now runs the only locally created cosplay charity in Texas.

Recycled: Meet the Games & Theory Department

A blast from the past, literally, Recycled! is a category-free game show that will kick off the track at ALL-CON this year. Actual game show cards (with questions of course) from past years of All-Con (and even some recovered after Infinicon 2016) have been amassed for recycling.  That's right, all the trivia in this game show is being given a second chance after being a part of many other game shows from the past!

Three contestants will start the game, vying for their choice of great prizes, but there's a twist!  Three wrong answers from a contestant not only eliminates them from the game, but opens their seat to ANOTHER contestant when they get Recycled!  Contestants amass points, but can lose it all with wrong answers.  All participants receive a small prize from the Recycled Bin, but only one will walk away with a main prize.

Do you dare to face Recycling?

Introduction to The Dark Empire

The Dark Empire (TDE) is recognized by Lucasfilm as a costuming organization comprised of and operated by fans of Star Wars.

One of the main features to our club is that we encourage "custom creativity." While we do allow for iconic canon characters such as Dark Vader, Darth Maul, and the Emperor we also allow our club members to develop their own custom Star Wars characters. We believe that Star Wars was created to engage one's imagination and we explore that creativity in the form of custom Sith, Dark Jedi, Grey Jedi, Smugglers, and Bounty Hunters.

If this sounds interesting then please join us at our panel! We're happy to answer any questions you might have.

If you have listened to the audio podcast and/or (not to be confused with Cassian Andor) watched the live streaming show, you won’t want to miss the live simple tricks and nonsense of the first ever “The Rantcor Pit Road Show” (aka TRPRS)!  Two lifelong Star Wars fans are always ready to talk up that Galaxy Far, Far Away and this live and interactive panel lets other fans join the fun.  Expect lots of humor, insight, and tomfollery involving “the Star Wars”.

Life Isn't Fair Monopoly

Have you ever played Monopoly and thought to yourself, ''What would this game be like if it was fun?'' Well struggle with that question no more! Mrs. JediCole will be offering open gaming of her Life Isn't Fair Monopoly game, a variation on the old classic board game that is actually fun to play!

Players can go from rags to riches to rags and back again during the course of this lively update. Sent to jail? No problem! With a roll of the dice you could get off on a technicality or frame another player! You like collecting that $200 when you pass Go, right? Well in this game you lose $10 of that money for every dependent child you've picked up along the way. Got a lot of properties in your name? Go to jail and you could lose them to other players while you are incarcerated!

But it's not all bad! Every player starts the game with property. You could spend a few turns on welfare or win the Lottery and take all the money that ''The Man'' has collected in the center of the board! Still losing? Marry for money.

Limited seats available - pre registration recommended, but not required. Walk-ins welcome on a space-available basis.

Collectors and Those That Love Them

You knew it was dangerous when you took the job! What happens when you date or marry a collector? What are the pitfalls? What are the benefits? Exactly how does collecting affect a relationship? And what does it take to find balance in a life with a collector?

JediCole and Mrs. JediCole Houston host a panel on just this subject. After ''marrying into'' committed collecting, Mrs. JediCole has some unique insights to offer. From financial impact and communication issues to storage, mutual compromise, and ''that perfect gift for the collector in your life'', a variety of topics will be covered. Collecting couples are most welcome, but you need not be in a relationship to attend. Your hosts will be welcoming one or two other ''collecting couples'' to be announced as their special guests, so expect some interesting tales.

Audience participation (including joining the hosts and their guests at table) is encouraged on this informative panel.

Don't Lose Your Geek Card: Hey Kids, Comics! Edition
COMICS! Yep, that is what the hosts of Hey Kids, Comcis! love to read, collect, and enjoy (and talk about on their podcasts). So naturally they want to challenge fans with a fresh batch of comic book trivia with their own version of Don't Lose Your Geek Card.

In keeping with the format of all incarnations of the game, each contestant collects three Geek Cards and faces the big board of trivia questions, in this case based on comics old and new. Each contestant who answers incorrectly loses on of their Geek Cards, lose them all during the game and you have to sit the rest out. But have no fear! Bonus Cards randomly included with some questions can save the day as they are effectively extra Geek Cards. Hidden Prize Cards add extra incentive as correct answers mean extra prizes for lucky contestants. Are you at the local comic shop every Wednesday to get the latest releases? Do you think you have ALL-CON comic book trivia champion Starman Morrison-level knowledge of the medium? Well true believer, you had best get in the contestant pool for this version of Don't Lose Your Geek Card! All contestants will receive a selection of comics from Hey Kids, Comics! Live's infamous ''Short Box'' at the start of the show.

Points are awarded for every correctly answered question as well as for each Geek Card retained and every Bonus Card earned (and retained). Prize Cards do not add to the point total, but at least there is a nice prize involved! Should comic books not be your cup of tea, check out the other incarnations of Don't Lose Your Geek Card on the schedule.

Screen Time

So you think you know movies do you? How about famous or popular movie quotes? Well this is the game show you have been looking for! Or is it?

Screen time is part movie trivia, part movie quotes, and all fun. The big twist is that movie quotes are read without inflection or any attempt to imitate the characters or actors. The bulk of points awarded are for correctly identifying the movie, the actor, and/or the character from a movie quote read by the hosts ''as if your grandma was reading the line with no knowledge of the source''. Contestants gain from one to three points per correct identification with recognizing your favorite quotes out of context being the real challenge. Standard trivia and other components round out the game play.

All quotes for the standard edition of Screen Time are certified family friendly, so you can even bring along the kiddos to watch the fun unfold.

Contestants: Three

Don't Lose Your Geek Card: The Rantcor Pit Edition
ALL-CON's first all-original game show, template for many variations over the years, is back!

Contestants are each issued three Geek Cards at the start of the game and are presented with a board of eight categories with five trivia questions each. Any contestant ringing in and giving a wrong answer loses a Geek Card. This can be a bad thing because its a ''three strikes and you're out'' kind of game! But if you get the question right you have earned points that are added to the points received for each Geek Card maintained during the game. Lose a Geek Card or two? Fear not! There are Bonus Cards randomly included with questions that act as replacement Geek Cards which can be won with a correct answer. There are even randomly placed prize cards that garner special prizes for a correct answer over and above the main prize for the show!

Points are awarded for every correctly answered question as well as for each Geek Card retained and every Bonus Card earned (and retained). Prize Cards do not add to the point total, but at least there is a nice prize involved! This classic edition of the show will feature trivia derived from movies, television, comics, sci-fi / fantasy literature, and popular culture. Looking for something more specific? Check out the other incarnations of Don't Lose Your Geek Card!

Screen Time Rated R
So you think you know movies do you? How about famous or popular movie quotes? Well this is the game show you have been looking for! Or is it?

Screen time is part movie trivia, part movie quotes, and all fun. The big twist is that movie quotes are read without inflection or any attempt to imitate the characters or actors. The bulk of points awarded are for correctly identifying the movie, the actor, and/or the character from a movie quote read by the hosts ''as if your grandma was reading the line with no knowledge of the source''. Contestants gain from one to three points per correct identification with recognizing your favorite quotes out of context being the real challenge. Standard trivia and other components round out the game play.

This edition of Screen Time allows for a broader range of movie quotes and allows the hosts to cuss like sailors. Mature audiences only, please.

Contestants: Three

Saturday Morning Special

There was a time when network television pandered to the kids on Saturday mornings.  So much so that competition was fierce each year to capture young audiences for sugary cereal and toy line advertisers.  Harken back to this bygone era of The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show, The Land of the Lost, and even X-Men through the vehicle of this new Saturday morning game show first produced at Infinicon 2016.  Test your cartoon, live action, and PSA knowledge...if you are up early!

Screen Time

So you think you know movies do you? How about famous or popular movie quotes? Well this is the game show you have been looking for! Or is it?

Screen time is part movie trivia, part movie quotes, and all fun. The big twist is that movie quotes are read without inflection or any attempt to imitate the characters or actors. The bulk of points awarded are for correctly identifying the movie, the actor, and/or the character from a movie quote read by the hosts ''as if your grandma was reading the line with no knowledge of the source''. Contestants gain from one to three points per correct identification with recognizing your favorite quotes out of context being the real challenge. Standard trivia and other components round out the game play.

All quotes for the standard edition of Screen Time are certified family friendly, so you can even bring along the kiddos to watch the fun unfold.

Introduction to The Dark Empire

The Dark Empire (TDE) is recognized by Lucasfilm as a costuming organization comprised of and operated by fans of Star Wars.

One of the main features to our club is that we encourage "custom creativity." While we do allow for iconic canon characters such as Dark Vader, Darth Maul, and the Emperor we also allow our club members to develop their own custom Star Wars characters. We believe that Star Wars was created to engage one's imagination and we explore that creativity in the form of custom Sith, Dark Jedi, Grey Jedi, Smugglers, and Bounty Hunters.

If this sounds interesting then please join us at our panel! We're happy to answer any questions you might have.
