Duck Duck Games
Stay after the vidshow on Friday for game show night! There's no need to sign up—just show up and play. We've got three fannish games for you:
- Taboo (mini-game): A few lucky players will get the crowd to guess a fannish trope or word, without saying any of a few closely-related words;
- Costume Box Challenge (mini-game): Last year's popular game returns! Players have 60 seconds to build a costume from a selection of objects and get the crowd to guess who they are;
- and our main game of the evening, Fannish Encore: Given a word or category of words, think of and sing (or get your friends to sing) a song lyric that includes it. The prompts will be fannish words, phrases, and concerns, and the responses can be from any songs you know—pop songs, folk songs, hymns, camp songs, show tunes, commercial jingles, or lullabies.
Come and watch, or come and play—or both; it's easy to jump into the middle of a round.
Saturday during Disco Duck we'll have board, card, and tabletop games set up in the Game Room. Learn a new game or enjoy an old one! Cards Against Humanity, Slash, Apples to Apples, Pandemic, Ticket to Ride, Chrononauts, Gloom, Indigo, Bananagrams, and many others will be available. Entry is included with Disco Duck entry (free with con membership or $20 at the door, and all attendees must be 18 years or over).
