Magic: The Gathering - September 15th

Come Saturday, we'll be hosting a Standard Constructed tournament alongside our organizing partners, Sci-Fi Genre beginning at 10:00 A.M. All proceeds from the competition will be donated to Gamers Helping Gamers, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping young Magicites get to college, founded by Magic pro Jon Finkel (who, by the way, will be attending Saturday's event!).

Entry to the tournament is $25.

Multiplayer Tournaments - September 14th, 15th, and 16th

We'll be hosting numerous gaming competitions all weekend long, featuring titles such as Halo, Street Fighter, and Gears of War. Each day of the Expo will feature one 4v4 single elimination shooter-style tournament, and one 1v1 single elimination fighting-style tournament. As the events draws nearer, we'll be announcing additional games and details.

Tournament entry is $10.

Cosplay Contest - September 15th

We hope to see all sorts of Doctors, Chells, and Captain Mals through the Expo, but Saturday will be something special. Anyone planning on attending in Cosplay can now sign up for our Cosplay contest. All registered cosplayers will first be seen by an independent panel of judges led by Chiki of the D20 Girls Project, and after, we're hosting a fashion show! Winners will be chosen by a combination of their costume craftsmanship and the level of applause they can muster from their fellow Escapists.
