Date: April 8, 2018

Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Based on the popular board game, Anime Taboo gives teams of two sixty seconds to guess as many anime and videogame related characters and titles as they can. One player reads the name of the name/title on a card and tries to describe it to the second player. The catch? Each card has a list of five “taboo” words that he/she can’t say while giving the description… and the words are ones someone would usually use when talking about the anime/video game! This game show is as much fun for the audience as it is for the players and players are selected from attendees.

Music Videos

Date: April 6 - 8, 2018
