From the twisted minds of Cole ''JediCole'' Houston and Andrew Farmer comes the most unique two hours you can spend at ALL-CON 2021! An amalgam of two former The JediCole Universe audio podcasts, ''Half-Ass Roundtable'' and ''Super Geek-Out!'', the hosts of ''Hey Kids, Comics!'' are bringing together a to-be-announced panel of guests to talk about movies, television, comics, and other geeky fare in the most random and organic way possible.

This audience participation-heavy panel will feature a rotating cast of participants, the advent of ''Speed Guesting'', a mini game show or two, and an embarrassment of riches in the half-assery department! If you love all things pop culture and don't mind a collection of characters with no filter in place, this is the show for you!

FRI 7:00 PM: 20 Sided Trivia (45 mins.)

Room: LANTANA I (Breezeway) Rated: Everyone

Produced By: Bacon Samurai Productions

Moderated By: Zach Schrotter


It's the return of The Notorious RPG. You'll need more than just a 17 Charisma to answer general pop culture questions, fight monsters, and roll a giant 20-sided die in your quest for everlasting glory and prizes...well, mostly prizes. Glory is not guaranteed. But still, it's Dungeons, Dragons, and a test of your intellectual mettle. Go forth and conquer.

Room: LANTANA I (Breezeway) Rated: Everyone

Produced By: Bacon Samurai Productions

Moderated By: Kasi Schrotter; Zach Schrotter


Do you watch a movie and say things like: ''Wait, that wasn't in the book!'' Do you still have your 6th grade library card next to your Blockbuster card because you can't let either of them go? Were you screaming at your TV at the end of Game of Thrones because that's not how George RR Martin would have ended it? (Okay, we were all doing that.) If so, this is the game show for you! Come test your knowledge about literature so good, they had to make a film about it. We promise, this has a better ending than either version of Stephen King's IT.

SUN 4:00 PM: Oooh! Oooh! Oooh! (with Grand Prize Drawing) (45 mins.)

Room: LANTANA I (Breezeway) Rated: Everyone

Produced By: Half-Ass Productions

Moderated By: Cole Houston; Andrew Farmer; Zach Schrotter; Shawn Padilla


Brainchild of Games and Theory Executive Producer Cat Houston, this is the game show where EVERYONE is a contestant!

The Games and Theory producers will divide the audience into teams and then ask each group trivia questions in turn. Anyone who thinks they know the answer is encouraged to raise their hand with an enthusiastic ''Oooh! Oooh! Oooh!'' with the first to acknowledge being picked to answer. A correct answer sends the audience member to the prize table to draw for a prize level and take home something fun. Each team makes the rounds until the questions arrive back at the first team and the rotation starts anew.

Audience members are encouraged to let others have a chance at prizes if they have already won two themselves, insuring everyone gets a little something for joining the fun. By far the most chaotic game show annually. It is also the show that has the highly anticipated Grand Prize drawing! All weekend long Games and Theory game shows, as well as many other non-game show events produced by the Games and Theory crew, give out two-part raffle tickets to all who attend these shows from beginning to end. On Sunday, after Oooh! Oooh! Oooh! concludes, tickets are gathered and one lucky attendee will take home the Grand Prize for 2020!

Last year, courtesy of The JediCole Universe and Half-Ass Productions, the Grand Prize was a 1:1 scale Star Wars Black Series Poe Dameron X-Wing Pilot Helmet with electronic sound effects valued at $90!
It never ha a chance, so...
That prize will FINALLY be given away this Sunday, as well as, a bonus SECOND Grand Prize (to a seperate ticket) for this year! WOW!

Your Favorite Con is drawing to a close after an amazing four full days. You've attended panels, game shows, parties, costume contests, and gaming events. You've met some great celebrity guests and heard amazing tales in their panels. You've taken in the scope of fandom and have plenty of goodies, photos, and memories.

While all good things must come to an end, following Games and Theory’s annual Grand Prize Drawing (as part of Sunday's ''Oooh! Oooh! Oooh!''), there’s still fun to be had at the ''It's a Wrap!'' panel! ALL-CON Games and Theory’s own JediCole and Happy Cat, along with any of the staff still remaining on site, bring you an interactive post-convention wrap-up. When the last game show has awarded its prizes and a lot of leftover stuff has been given away in raffles, the fun continues as the exhausted crew share the highlights and laughs from the long weekend they looked forward to since last year.

This panel has become a favorite end-of-convention haunt for many who are looking for a chance to share their own experiences with a casual crowd. Close out the weekend in style with the kids from the Game Shows track and friends!
