Anime Name that Tune
In this popular contest, players must guess the name of the anime title of the tune being played in 15 seconds or less to gain a point. The contestant with the highest score at the end wins.
Are you a seiyuu?
Test your budding voice actor skills in a friendly showdown. You will be challenged on a variety of interesting scenes. Some scenes will be as easy as saying "PikaPi!", while others will be more complicated like a soliloquy from Death Note's Kira!
Bingo (Otakuthon style)
Who here has never played Bingo? Numbers will be replaced by words or sentences taken from the anime universe. Will you be able to keep up?

Guess What's Up?
Can you guess the hidden image on the screen with the help of the crowd that can only answer with "yes" or "no"?

Mimic Like You Want to Win
An interactive memory game where you need to get physical! Are you flexible? How good is your memory? What about your acting skills? Watch a short video clip of a dance, of a one-liner or of a "technique" then mimic what you saw. It could be anything from the poses and the dialogue of the Sailor Moon introduction to the Kamehameha in DBZ!
The goal of this game is to figure out which answers are the most popular to a series of questions that were asked to the public.
Note: There will be two different versions of the game: one is rated PG while the other one is rated 18+.
The Pokémon Challenge
Come have fun with two types of challenges: the Pokémon version of shiritori and with "Who's that Pokémon?" You will need to know the Pokémon names and be able to recognize the Pokémon from all 6 generations before attempting this challenge! We will use the American names.
Trixy's Surprise Egg
Ever wished to win the lottery? Well here is your big chance to win big time! Participants of all ages can come and try their luck. It's a simple choice between a plain envelope and the Golden Egg. Will you play it safe and take the revealed prize in the envelope or will you risk it and give up the envelope prize for a chance to get what's inside the Golden Egg?
Whose Line is It?
This game tests your knowledge on anime characters and their corresponding lines. You'll be given a voice track of the character and its translation and your job is to guess who the character is. It could be as easy as "BAN-KAI" to as difficult as "...-Ron".
