New Game Shows for 2016

Posted by Amber on Jul 13, 2016

Fake Artist Goes to Ai-Kon
Players take turns collectively drawing a picture, but one player doesn't know what the drawing is supposed to be. Can the fake artist hide that fact or will they get caught? And who will figure it out? Thanks to Cre8ive Supplies all participants will walk away with a Mr Sketch smelly marker and have a chance to win some very generous gift certificates!

Anime Wits and Wagers
The ultimate combination of anime trivia knowledge and gambling. Guess the answer, but bet on which of the answers given you think is right! Game Knight has generously donated the prizes for this game show including a copy of the game, a very stylish trophy and more!
