A Court of Dreams and Goblins: The Carnival of Labyrinth

Rated: Teen


Following the prior Jim Henson's 1986 masterpiece ''Labyrinth'', you are welcomed to the 3 hour masquerade gala ball! Nostalgia comes to life at this interactive occasion, which will feature the ballroom transformed into the world of the infamous and notorious, yet oddly beloved, Goblin King. You will see familiar scenes and faces from the film, and will more than likely find a few hidden miniature treasures as you journey through the passages.

We will all dance together As The World Falls Down with all its glitter and glass filled glory. Labyrinth costuming, masquerade, and ballroom attire strongly encouraged.

B.S. …or Not??

Rated: Everyone

Produced By: ALL-CON Games and Theory; Half-Ass Productions


It started innocently enough. A little challenge for Mrs. JediCole when she was a guest on the ''Hey Kids, Comics!'' podcast's 99th episode. Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston challenged her to determine if various characters were part of the Great Lakes Avengers or just ones they made up in advance. It was so much fun that now it has become a new feature for ALL-CON!

This year JediCole and Captain Comics will challenge their audience with biographical information on a variety of super-heroes, super-villains, teams, and comic book series (yes, this will run the gamut) that may or may not have ever seen the light of day. With well over a century of history, comic books are a goldmine of obscure, ridiculous, oddball, and downright insane characters and publications. Your hosts' minds are an equal embarrassment of riches when it comes to concocting the fake but real sounding comic book fodder that challenges you to decide is it BS...or not?

Each ERAs group will design and construct a perfect look for our favorite rockstar, complete with creating and coloring up a backstage ''set'' for their Era. Once you've prepped your finest, presentations will be made and judges will decide the best dressed winner. Fabric scrap materials, partial outfits, and crafty things will be made available to each ERAS team, but just to make it more fun and a little wild: If you really want to wow the judges and dominate this contest, you are allowed to bring ONE singular gallon sized baggie full of craft scraps (glue dots, material, sequins, lace, strands of pearls, whatever you think Blondie would look good in for that ERA... etc.). You may also share what you brought with other ERAS teams. Please note, we cannot allow hot glue guns or anything that plugs in, because we already have enough fire in our blood, we don't want fire on the tables or carpet. Again: each attendee is limited to one baggie, otherwise we'll be up to our ears in fabric.

Don't lose your Geek Card Classic

Rated: Everyone

Eight categories from television, movies, and other aspects of popular culture will challenge the knowledge of the biggest fans. This year all eight categories feature the themes of several other game shows to be played over the weekend! Three contestants are issued three Geek Cards which they must defend by correctly answering questions. Every correct answer garners a point, but incorrect answers cost a Geek Card. Lose all three and you're out! But don't fret! The board is littered with Bonus Cards that act as extra Geek Cards (if you get the answer right), plus there are a variety of Prize Cards as well. One lucky contestant goes home with his or her choice of a variety of prize offerings!

Midnight Loot Extravaganza

Rated: Everyone


Each night at midnight ALL-CON volunteers gather at the upper balcony and prepare to rain loot down upon the attendees below.

The pre-drop includes a moment of silence to mark the loss of the pinata frenzy event which ran in the 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 allows 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.This drop has animals of various sizes (3''-5'') thrown 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 600 balloons being individually dropped, each with one to three prize items inside. The receiver 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-laden balloon accurately enough to possibly hit someone with it below them.

Miniature Golf

Rated: Everyone


Hole-in-One Miniature Golf, every day at ALL-CON.

When researching indoor golf courses, we learned about two different philosophies: ''Pro Putter'' (complexity of layout) and ''Obstacle'' (complexity of ornamentation). We designed a hybrid with a little bit of each.

Each of the ten-plus holes is built on a sixteen foot long green, some with an additional eight foot dogleg which just means they aren't just a single straight green.

In addition to the miniature golf course there also is a ''Pool Golf'' game. It's the same rules as shooting pool but with putters and golf balls. Three ball in the corner pocket!

What better way to practice social distancing with your friends than to spread out on our indoor mini golf course, located right in the spacious new convention space at the Hilton Lincoln Centre! You don't even have to leave the convention. Catch a round or two in between panels or to relax before the Cosplay competition.

Putters and balls will be disinfected in between players.

Try it out! Miniature Golf is now one of our new feature events. It's just one more way we continue to make ALL-CON ''Your Favorite Con.''
