9:00a.m.: Photo Scavenger Hunt (45 mins.)

Room: ENTIRE HOTEL [All Levels] Rated: Everyone


Each day ALL-CON offers a different Photo Scavenger Hunt theme. The daily Hunt List is issued at the Volunteer Desk to participants who register for the scavenger hunt. (Lists for subsequent days are not provided in advance.) When you register for the scavenger hunt will be assigned a tracker ID to tag your photo entries with.

When you submit your photo entries via text from your mobile device, there should be two photos for each entry. The first is the actual entry and the second is the same entry but with you in the picture. For example, if the entry is a flower then the first photo would include the flower and the second photo would be the same flower with you in the shot. Photo entries do not have to be made in the same order they are listed on the Hunt List.

The text message should be your tracker ID, the list item name or number, and description of the subject. For instance, if you are playing an Alphabet List and you are going to sumit a photo of a cosplayer portraying Captain Jack Sparrow for your ''P'' entry, and your tracker ID is SA35 then your text with the photos would read: ''SA35 P Pirate''. (For this example, you could have also chosen ''C'', ''J'', or ''S'' for Captain Jack Sparrow. Legitimate creativity drives the contest.)

During the day entries will be judged and some may be rejected. Common problems include: subject out of focus; subject does not qualify (Pikachu is not a ''Raccoon''); or no second shot received.

Participation awards are given for completed lists, once verified.

Please practice good photo etiquette when taking photographs around the convention.

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.

4:00p.m.: Photo Scavenger Hunt (45 mins.)

Room: ENTIRE HOTEL [All Levels] Rated: Everyone


Each day ALL-CON offers a different Photo Scavenger Hunt theme. The daily Hunt List is issued at the Volunteer Desk to participants who register for the scavenger hunt. (Lists for subsequent days are not provided in advance.) When you register for the scavenger hunt will be assigned a tracker ID to tag your photo entries with.

When you submit your photo entries via text from your mobile device, there should be two photos for each entry. The first is the actual entry and the second is the same entry but with you in the picture. For example, if the entry is a flower then the first photo would include the flower and the second photo would be the same flower with you in the shot. Photo entries do not have to be made in the same order they are listed on the Hunt List.

The text message should be your tracker ID, the list item name or number, and description of the subject. For instance, if you are playing an Alphabet List and you are going to sumit a photo of a cosplayer portraying Captain Jack Sparrow for your ''P'' entry, and your tracker ID is SA35 then your text with the photos would read: ''SA35 P Pirate''. (For this example, you could have also chosen ''C'', ''J'', or ''S'' for Captain Jack Sparrow. Legitimate creativity drives the contest.)

During the day entries will be judged and some may be rejected. Common problems include: subject out of focus; subject does not qualify (Pikachu is not a ''Raccoon''); or no second shot received.

Participation awards are given for completed lists, once verified.

Please practice good photo etiquette when taking photographs around the convention.

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 new 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.

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 int he contestant pool for this version of Don't Lose Your Geek Card!

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.

Contestants: Three
All contestants will receive a selection of comics from Hey Kids, Comics! Live's infamous ''Short Box'' at the start of the show.

Room: BEL-AIR 2/3 [Lobby Level] Rated: Adult

Produced By: JediCole Universe / Half Ass Productions; Rantcor Pit


For nearly half a decade Cole Houston and Eddie Medina have collectively been The Rantcor Pit. From their audio podcast to their ever-travelling, Dallas based, live-streaming ''The Rantcor Pit Live'' to last year's The Rantcor Pit Road Show, chances are you've seen and/or heard ''Your Favorite Star Wars Guys''. But (for the most part) you've never seen them quite like this!

Eddie and Cole are ready to let their hair down (and maybe their pants, but hopefully not) with a special live presentation that will play bluer than Aunt Beru's milk! Yes this is the late night, no-holds-barred, F-bomb dropping Star Wars X-travaganza you've been waiting for! ''The Moist Side of the Force'' is about to get moister than a Tattooine vaporator at harvest time and exclusively at ALL-CON!

If you thought there were uncomfortable moments in The Last Jedi, well... let's just say this show will make Rian Johnson blush!

Midnight: Midnight Loot Extravaganza (1 hrs.)

Room: GALLERY BALCONY [Lobby Level] Rated: Everyone


Each night at Midnight (Tu, Fri, Sat) ALL-CON volunteers gather at the upper balcony and prepare to rain loot down upon the attendees below.

The pre-drop should incude a moment of silence to mark the loss of the pinata frenzy event which ran in this timeslot from 2006 through 2017. Twelve years was a good run for any single event at ALL-CON.

The first 'drop' is of Mardi Gras style bead necklaces. This serves two purposes. They are easier to throw which allws the volunteers to perfect their aim and style, and the necklaces weigh down the receiver, making it a little more of a challenge for the next two drops.

The second 'drop' is of stuffed animals. The first drop is of smaller, better defined objects. This drop has animals of various sizes (3''-5'') throwm from above with a soft bouncy impact, making them more difficult to catch and allowing them to be thrown harder without fear of injuring the recipient.

The third 'drop' is the most challenging for both the volunteer and the receiver. It involves five hundred balloons being individually dropped with 1-3 prize items inside. The reciver must decide whether to hold the balloon (inflated) in order to continue trying to catch more, or take the time to pop it and retrieve the prize(s) in order to be less encumbered to catch more balloons. Volunteers have to try to throw a wobbly, light, prize laiden balloon accurately enough as to possibly hit someone with it below them.
