Special events at Norwescon

Lazer Tag: Yes, we're back! Lazer Tag will be played Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. We have equipment for use; it is compatible with the Tiger Lazer Tag system, NOT the Team Ops system. For those players who are under 18, you must have a parent or guardian present at the arena. Lazer Tag is a live action, NON-CONTACT sport. For more information on Lazer Tag, contact MercalLine.

Match Game: This year we have a special treat for you. We have asked Kevin Standlee to come up from California to host the fun game show “Match Game”. He will be picking contestants from the audience who will have the chance to win great prizes.

Scavenger Hunt: 1 or 2 person teams will be given lists of items to find on Friday. Some will be easy; others may be near impossible to find. Then on Sunday all the teams will present what they have found to the judges. The grand prize will be membership to next year’s convention.

501st Charity Event: Ever wanted to have your picture taken with a bunch of storm troopers (or maybe even Darth Vader)? Well on Saturday afternoon you will be able to do just that (for a small donation to a deserving charity).Gaming: If you like to game, then the gaming rooms are for you. It doesn’t matter if you want to play RPGs, CCGs, Table Top, or LARPs - we will have something for you to play all weekend long. The main gaming rooms will be at the end of the Cascade hallway with open gaming space and LARPs out in the Rotunda.

Casino: On Thursday night come and gamble the night away. We will have a wide selection of games for you to gamble your funny money on. We will also have the start of our Second Annual Texas Hold’em tournament. If you would like to be a casino dealer stop by Grand 2 at 7 p.m. and we will train you on what you will need to do.

Midnight Movie Madness: We will be showing a cult classic each night at midnight. Audience participation is always appreciated. Friday night will be the Rocky Horror Picture Show with performances by the Vicarious Theatre Company.

Amtgard: On Sunday morning Amtgard will be giving a demo. Like a little magic with your boffer weapons? Then make sure you stop by Grand 3 to see what Amtgard is all about.
