    Otakon 2019: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

    This stopped happening in the past couple years, but in the years prior to that, there would be a page on the website with information on Premieres and Special Screenings. It would be really nice if that would come back. I asked on social media this year if it would be back and got a "maybe" gif response, but nothing happened. Can we please get the Premieres and Special Screenings page back on the website to make these events more visible?

    Let's See Some Swag!

    Was it just me, or was there a serious lack of giveaway swag from the industry booths this year?

    Rate your Hotels

    Name of Hotel: Embassy Suites Was it part of the official block? Yes Price: $217 / night Type of room: King Suite The Good: The suites are spacious, with living area which includes a table and chairs, sleeper sofa, coffee table, arm chair, and a large TV. The room included refrigerator and microwave, and had a second sink on the counter outside of the bathroom, which made getting ready in the morning a bit quicker. The bedroom had its own large TV. Hot breakfast was included with a made to order omelette line and a line for buffet-style breakfast. Breakfast included sausage and bacon, fried potatoes, eggs, and a different starch each day (pancakes, waffles, french toast) with warm syrup. Fresh fruit, pastries, yogurt, cereals, and beverages round out the options. I didn't take advantage of this, but they also had an evening reception each day with complimentary alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages and light snacks included. The location is great. It is a short walk from the convention center (0.4 miles) and located with convenient access to a nearby CVS, parking garages, and food options. Staff was friendly and efficient. The hotel's bag storage on Sunday was quick and easy to drop off and pick up. The Bad: Nothing really bad so these will be minor nitpicks. The hallways are open on one side and overlook the lobby, so noise may travel up into the halls at times. The pool was crowded on Friday night and a band-aid was spotted on the ground of the pool area. Manage your expectations if sleeping on the sleeper sofa. It is somewhere to sleep, but not nearly as comfortable as an actual bed. The room had a paper bag marked as a bag for recycling, but when housekeeping took the bag on Friday, a new one was not left for us. Final thoughts: An excellent place to stay. Highly recommend.

    Good to know that the ones posted on the website is accurate. Is the care and thoroughness being taken with this year's attendance number a compensation for announcing the 2018 attendance of 29,293 last year, even going as far as releasing it in a press release 3 days after the convention, but then ending up over 1,100 off the accurate attendance of 28,116 on the website?

    The battle for supremacy is on as we engage to match wits in Game Night - Unofficial Otakon Quiplash. Friday, 07/19/2019 at 9:00PM EDT We've loaded the Jackbox Party Pack favorite Quiplash 2 with dozens (over 5 dozen!) of custom prompts relating to Otakon, anime, and anything else we could think of! Players are given a prompt, such as "Why Shinji really didn't want to get in the robot". Players then put down their funniest, wittiest, or whatever answer they think will get them the votes! The answers are put head to head and the best, or sometimes the worst, response wins! Win or lose, this is one event you won't want to miss, as Quiplash is already a fun time, so Quiplash + anime + Otakon should be an amazing time!
