Everyone’s favorite game, Anime Jeopardy will be back at YomiCon this year! Anime Jeopardy is played just like real Jeopardy but with all anime/manga/otaku answers that you will need to come up with the questions for. We play one round only (no final jeopardy) with 3 teams of five people. Everyone on the winning team will get a prize. Sign up will be when you get to YomiCon and will be for individual slots on a team – meaning you don’t need to know anyone beforehand to show off all of your anime smarts!
Think you have what it takes to defeat all challengers? Just want to kick back and play some video games with friends? This year at YomiCon you will have the opportunity to do both!
Enter the YomiCon cosplay contest, and eternal fame, glory, and other fun prizes could be yours! There are two stages of the competition: prejudging and onstage performance. When you sign up for the competition, the judges will ask you some questions about your costume and take a picture for reference. After deliberating, the judges will pick a small group of finalists to go onstage, showcase their costumes, and answer a question in character.
