'The Game Show Where the Entire Audience Are Contestants'' celebrates its fifth year at ALL-CON! This exciting show boasts over 40 prizes per edition and everyone has a shot at one of them! If you have ever been in the audience of an All-Con game show and felt that unbearable urge to yell out the answer that the contestants struggle to conjure up, this is the show for you!

Apart from some minor changes in structure the show remains largely unchanged from the pilot incarnation back in 2014. If you are in the audience, you are part of the show and could win one of the myriad prizes (valued from $1 to $5 for the most part). Be a part of All-Con's biggest trivia contest and feel free to yell ''Oooh! Oooh! Oooh!'' when you know the answer!

Cartoons. They're not just for Saturday morning! Especially now that cartoons are something of a rarity on Saturday mornings. There is certainly no shortage of cartoons, though, so they make an ideal subject for one of ALL-CON's newest game shows!

From classic Loony Tunes and Hanna-Barbara fare to the more contemporary fare that are staples of Nickelodeon, the Disney Channel, and Cartoon Network there is a lot of trivia out there. Do you know your stuff when it comes to animated television shows and movies? Be sure to get in early for contestant selection because this is one is bound to be in ''toon'' with a lot of people's trivia knowledge base!

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 wraipup. 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!
