Contrary to popular belief, gaming isn’t the only kind of fun you can have at a game con. We are sensitive to the needs of the adventurous geek and gamer who has pitched in to be part of the con but may not want to spend every waking moment hovering over the table. Yeah… trust me. We know how to offer quality entertainment opportunities outside of the doldrums of endless gaming. For questions about these and other events, contact our event coordinator at [email protected].
Art of Escape Room: The excellent puzzle crafters from Art of Escape ICT are descending on TsunamiCon with a special, custom-built puzzle room scenario based on the popular board game Betrayal at House on the Hill.

Register for your group in advance at the Art of Escape website or sign up on site!

Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator was a hit at last year's event and returns for round two at TsunamiCon 2017! If you ever wanted to join the bridge crew aboard a starship, here is your chance! You can choose from one of several roles: Communications Officer, Science Officer, Helmsman, Weapons Officer, Engineer, Fighter Pilot… or, of course, the Captain. All Officers but the Captain have their own workstation and the Captain directs the crew to the far reaches of space. Bring your friends and help defend your sector from hostile invaders!
The game will be available on Friday evening, October 5th, after 6 pm in the Captain’s Quarter and will continue to run throughout the weekend during convention hours. Sessions run roughly every 30 minutes or so. Find out more at TsunamiCon.org/Artemis.
