FRIDAY, APRIL 7

12pm-10pm: Artemis Starship Bridge Simulator
Teams of six join forces to crew a Star Trek-style starship on brief missions of exploration and combat. It’s a real-life Kobayashi Maru (but winnable).

5pm: “Welcome to Fandom”
“What is this place? What are all you people doing?” Join us for a very brief overview of what awaits the adventurous heart. Everyone welcome especially newbies. Our programming staff and coordinators will be available to discuss the upcoming events.

6pm: “Partying Safely”
Lexi Taylor hosts a discussion with members from BarFleet, The Royal Manticoran Navy, and others focused on how to both enjoy and throw room parties responsibly and safely for all involved.

6pm-12am: “Live-Action Roleplaying (LARP) – Vampire: The Masquerade, Blood and Bourbon”
“For quite some time the Independent Alliance has had a negligible influence on the events in Louisville, Kentucky. The Giovanni have decided to fix that. In honor of his recent arrival Don Antonio Giovanni will be hosting a Salon on Friday evening. All guests are requested to RSVP, but exceptions will be allowed on a case by case basis. The Don looks forward to seeing everyone soon.”
Hosted by The Underground Theater. Sign-up information in the Game Room

8pm: ConGlomeration 2017 Opening Ceremonies
And so it begins: Welcome all our Guests of Honor to ConGlomeration 2017, meet a few of the staff responsible (for better or for worse) for this year’s convention, and maybe even get the skinny on a few “unofficial” parties and events.

9pm-11pm: “Let’s Play Otome!”
Can’t watch anime and play games at the same time? Then try otome games! Tons of genres, multiple endings, and hours of fun! Come hang out, try some games, and get help beating them! (PG-13 games included; audience be advised)9pm-12am: “Murder Mystery Interactive Theater”

9pm-?: Open Filking
Filking?” No, it is not illegal (mostly). Yes, it is a lot of fun. No, you don’t have to play an instrument or even carry a tune (Oh c’mon, I’ve heard Mark ‘sing?’) Pull up a chair, or some floor, and relax.

9pm-12am: “Murder Mystery Interactive Theater”
Hosted by LEGENDS. Sign-up information in the Game Room.

Sarah Peek and her assistants work with the intrepid, the timid, and the bold to perfect that performance worthy of awards.

6pm: Dinner Break
Leave the building; consume healthy foodstuffs. It’s go-time.

7pm: Art Auction
Art Show items that have received three or more written bids go up for voice auction.  Bid early and bid often!  That art needs to come home with *you* and your bidding foes must be defeated!  ConGlomeration Art Show Awards, themselves pieces of art, are given out at the midpoint of the auction.

7pm-12am: “Live-Action Roleplaying (LARP) -Vampire: The Masquerade, Community of Corpses”
“A modern take on the Vampire mythos, Blood and Bourbon is the story of Louisville after the sun goes down. It is a game of treachery, danger, and the ultimate question. What makes us human?”
Hosted by The Underground Theater. Sign-up information in the Game Room.

8pm: Cosplay Masquerade
This year’s Masquerade will be epic. After all, the Klingon High Chancellor is one of the judges and Il Troubadour is performing the half-time show. Being less than stellar might be painful this year. Bring on your best act and cosplay to win the day…er, night!!
