"Artistic and technical mastery... mesmerizing." - Uncanny Magazine

Fight hate, support diversity in gaming, and join firespinning ninjas, bellydancing Wookiees, and sword-wielding warriors for an unforgettable night of nerdiness and dancing! We'll even have specially-crafted geek cocktails (because who doesn't want to drink Romulan Ale?)! Raks Geek presents a brand-new show inspired by video games like Bioshock, Super Mario Bros, and Mortal Kombat that will knock your socks off and do good at the same time.

A portion of proceeds from this show will go to I Need Diverse Games, a nonprofit dedicated to increasing diversity in the gaming industry.

The first 70 attendees will receive goody bags from Cards Against Humanity!
Door Prize: We'll be giving away full weekend passes to C2E2!
