A-Kon Gaming with the Stars

A-Kon presents a new and unique way to meet and interact with your favorite convention guests. 'Gaming with the Stars' allows you to play various games with the guests.

There is a nominal fee involved, but that money goes to charity!

Whichever A-Kon Guest gets the most money, by having the most con-goers play against them, he or she gets decide which Charity receives all the money made from 'Gaming with the Stars'! So it's two competitions in one!
