SESSIONS ARE ALWAYS SUBJECT TO CHANGE 

SEPTEMBER 17, 2016: The schedule is now as "final" as it ever gets! Which means that, yes, there will probably still be changes here and there, but generally only to resolve when we’ve accidentally placed one panelist on two panels at the same time, or if a panelist has to cancel.)

Are Games Art?
Roger Ebert set off an internet storm when he suggested that, unlike movies, video games were not art, and never would be. Are video games art? If not, will they ever be?

The object of the game is to match as many of the ‘celebrities’ as you can.

At the beginning of each round, one contestant has a choice of two questions (A or B) leaving the other one for the other contestant. Each contestant is read a statement with a blank at the end or near the end. Then the six ‘celebrities’ write down their answers to fill in the blank. When finished, the contestant in control gives an answer of his/her own after which the stars reveal their answers. Each time the contestant matches, he/she scores a point.

The game will be played in two rounds and the player who has matched the most at the end of round two wins the game.

Kill Doctor Lucky - In The Flesh!
It’s not that you dislike the Doctor. It’s more of a seething hatred. He wronged you and we’ll leave it at that. Tonight you will attend a dinner party which will prove to be the perfect opportunity to take your revenge. Unfortunately, there are others attending who have the same idea....

Join us for a rousing, live action version, of the James Ernest board game "Kill Doctor Lucky". (1.5 hr)

• • • • 
For those familiar with the original board game, imagine the mansion from the game board laid out on an open floor, scaled up to support humans traipsing through them. And then imagine yourself acting as one of the pawns, creeping through the mansion rooms, keeping an eye out for that annoying doctor ... so you can kill him ... just as long as no one else can "see" you. 

For those who are NOT familiar with the game, well aren't you in for a treat! Whether you want to try your hand at playing or just want to watch the antics of those that do, it's sure to be a great time. Check out the following review of the board game from The Game Grumps Wiki:

"In this notorious game, which is an inversion of Clue, you hate Doctor Lucky. Maybe he left you out of his will. Maybe he killed your pet rock. Whatever the reason, you want him dead. Unfortunately, so do the other players. Since you don't want to go to jail, you need to make your attempt in secret; if anybody can see you, whistle nonchalantly, and let the Doctor live ... until next time. "

"Players move around the mansion, collecting murder weapons (to make the murder attempt stronger - doubly so if the weapon is used in an appropriate location); failure cards (to thwart opponents' plans); and movement cards (to try to get together with Doctor Lucky in a secluded location for his inevitable demise.)"

(Not So) Family (Friendly) Feud
NOT SO FAMILY FRIENDLY FEUD...

Vancouver's SEXIEST game show is back for our 3rd year running!!

It's just like regular family feud, except all the regular wholesome "normal" questions have been replaced with something just a little more fun. 

That's right, the questions are kinkier, the prizes are smuttier, and your knowledge of popular-kink will be tested in front of a live audience. And if you'd like to help set the top answers for the questions, you can fill in the official game survey!

Of course, this show is strictly 18+[*]  

A Note from Fandom Feud, the hosting organization:
We'd like to offer special thanks to VCON for continuing to let us get away with this amazing show, year after year!

[*] Well, okay, not strictly 18+... those under 18 may be allowed to attend if we receive explicit permission from a parent or guardian.

The object of the game is to match as many of the ‘celebrities’ as you can.

At the beginning of each round, one contestant has a choice of two questions (A or B) leaving the other one for the other contestant. Each contestant is read a statement with a blank at the end or near the end. Then the six ‘celebrities’ write down their answers to fill in the blank. When finished, the contestant in control gives an answer of his/her own after which the stars reveal their answers. Each time the contestant matches, he/she scores a point.

The game will be played in two rounds and the player who has matched the most at the end of round two wins the game.

Toxic Hostility Versus Women in Gaming
What is the cause of the hostility of the, mainly male, vocal minority in the gaming community towards the women in their midst? Why are so many women game designers, game reviewers, and game players regularly harassed - both online and in real life - sometimes in the vilest and most disturbing ways? What can be done by everyone, especially by other male gamers, to flush this toxicity out of the system?

Human Battleship
Would you like to whack someone over the head with a giant inflatable hammer? Stab someone with an inflatable sword? Throw a Styrofoam ball at someone across the room?

Of course you would!

Buy could you do it by following someone else’s instructions? While blindfolded? Now that changes things!

Human Battleship is a large-scale game where two teams battle it out to sink each other. Each participant represents a “warship” with a harmless, inflatable weapon and a blindfold. You’ll receive battle commands from your team’s designated Admiral (the only one who isn’t blindfolded). With any luck, he will guide you to victory.

Hilarity abounds as blindfolded people fail about in the desperate hope of hitting their target. Be a part of the crowd or be a part of the game! Join the fleet! Play Human Battleship!
