MAGFest Versus!

What a horrible night to play videogames...

Deep within the halls of the Gaylord, the evil Count Baron Buff Von Stud-Horse awaits you...his only wish, to destroy MAGFest and ruin videogames forever!

MAGFest Versus is a game-show like no other, which pits you against other contestants in a test of trivia, video game skill…and maybe just a little bit of luck a chance to face off against Count Buff Von Studhorse himself!

The only question left is: do you have what is takes?

But enough videogames... have at you!

What is Magfest Versus?

A game-show like no other, MAGFest Versus pits you against other contestants in a test of trivia, video game skill and maybe just a little bit of luck... to win a chance to face off against Count Buff Von Studhorse himself.

Based on Nick Arcade (one of our favorite shows when we were young) this show is a proper fan remake of the classic concept, while showcasing the latest in games and technology available. Not only will you play games, but we will put you IN the game (should you make it far enough into Buff's lair).

We debuted our first show at MAGfest Laboratories, and we can't wait to show you what we have coming this January!

When is the show?

MAGFest Versus will be happening on the evenings of both Friday and Saturday (6th & 7th Jan) during MAGFest.

Can I participate as a contestant?

Yes you can! To register as a contestant for our Friday night show, visit our booth at the Arcade help desk. Only those with the videogame skill and knowledge will be worthy enough to enter Castle Gaylord... the question is: do you have what is takes to take on Count Buff Von Studhorse?
