The Geek Olympathon is returns! Assemble your own super team of geek knowledge and skill, and engage in a day-long contest of epic proportions, culminating in a fantastic geek party and Award-a-Thon!
STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION!
How It Works:
After registering your team with the PayPal link above, your team should consider its costuming and strategy for competing in the 6 hour long contest window. There will be almost 30 individual contests hosted at locations all around Portland! After Opening Ceremonies at Guardian Games at 10am on the 25th, teams will be released to go forth and conquer as many contests as they can before gathering at the Awards Ceremony at 6pm for materials turn in and scoring. Contests themselves range anywhere from video game performance, to comic book trivia, to song performance, to zombie slaying! Your team should be selected based on covering as many geek bases as possible! As we near the date of the Olympathon, descriptions of the actual contests will be released. For now, here is last year’s contestant’s guide to give you an idea of what you might expect. Once again that link is just an example.
