All Things Electronic!

Hey Gamers! All Saturday and Sunday there will be free for all Video Games in the Red Room!

We have everything from WiiU, Xbox, PS4 and a Mini SNES! And of course any of you that are more PC inclined are welcome to bring a Laptop and set up in the Video Game Room!

We also have a series of competitions over the weekend as follows, and just click on the name of the game for more info!

All competitions are just €2!


Mario Kart                                                     Morning Slot (10am – 1pm)

Let me tell you a story, when I started learning to drive, 3 lessons in my driver instructor looked at me, complete fear in his eyes as I had just rounded a tight corner, and containing the most fear I think I’ve ever induced in another person asked me “Why do you keep accelerating out of corners like that!?”. And I reflected, I dug deep, and I soon found the answer. I looked my instructor dead in the eye and said “Cause that’s how you play Mario Kart”

Moral of the story: I still don’t have my licence and I don’t play Mario Kart anymore.

But assuming the average con goer isn’t a mess like me, come along and compete on the virtual (and therefore safe) tracks of Mario Kart, throw squids, shells and bananas to belittle your opponents and claim those sweet, sweet tickets for yourself! And remember: There are no friends on the race track!


Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes!                                    Afternoon Slot (2pm – 5pm)

In the Red Room or Atrium

The Clockwork Door are running a Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes tournament here at Vaticon 24!

In Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, one player is trapped in a room with a ticking time bomb they must defuse. The other players are the “Experts” who must give the instructions to defuse the bomb by deciphering the information found in the Bomb Defusal Manual. But there’s a catch: the Experts can’t see the bomb, so everyone will need to talk it out – fast!


Super Smash Bros.                                      Afternoon Slot (2pm – 5pm)

Let me ask you one question, have you ever wanted to be Pikachu beating up Captain Falcon? No? Just me? Alright then, whatever it is you dream of at night, as long as it involves iconic video game characters beating up other iconic video game characters with an arrangement of odd objects from iconic video games well then you’re in luck! Pick up a controller and battle it out with up to 8 of you at once in our WiiU Super Smash Bros, Competition and win some prizes you feisty little electric mouse!
