Dates and times are subject to change. More events may be added as the con nears. Check back here often!
The Survival Horror Picture Show
Macabre gamers, heed this invitation! This game is itchy, tasty - and not just the Jill sandwiches! There was a hole here, it's gone now - and replaced with the greatest, darkest contest for survival horror video game fans! Do you know your scenes and stories? Join us in the Witching Hour to prove it!
Mississauga Room, International Plaza, Friday at 11:59PM
It’s the trivia game of answers and questions! The main event is on Saturday afternoon, but there are only three available player spots. To be selected as a player, you must first take the on-site tryout Friday at 3:00 PM in the Mississauga Room (International Plaza). Please be aware that this is before the convention officially opens.
Make sure you brush up on your overall anime knowledge, as the tryout will cover a wide variety of shows!
This is a fast Name That Tune variant. Players take turns choosing categories and must identify anime shows from music. With three difficulty levels, both newcomers to anime and seasoned viewers will feel comfortable. There’s something for everyone!
True to its name, Speedtune is faster-paced, but it’s also a bit like speed dating. You’ll get to learn a bit about every anime show that’s featured in the game. Information from over 200 different anime shows will be displayed, so taking notes is encouraged. You’ll definitely discover something new!
Fandom Musicals Event: "Animezing" Live Sketch Comedy Show
In this live stage show, Fandom Musicals opens up the world of anime, conventions, and otaku culture to their unique brand of sketch comedy and musical performance! See Pokemon finally go to court on PETA! See how "Free!" REALLY got it's name! Watch the WRONG way to use the Dragon Balls! It's all here in this live performance with tons of original and parody songs, and hilarious sketch comedy!
Anime Name That Tune
Anime North's longest running game show, now in our eighteenth glorious year! Please join us as we continue with the same format, same host, and many of the same songs. Test your musical knowledge, and have a little fun. Can you identify a song from just a 10 second clip? Well now it's time to prove it. Many have tried and failed, then wept bitter tears of shame. Now it's your turn...
Wacky Melty Happiness Show: Season VII
Come on down and play some strange games to win some very strange prizes. All are welcome, few a chosen, none shall comprehend the madness. At this event you are invited to play a few mini 'party games' direct from Japan, involving balloons, firecrackers, pantyhose, and a lot of laughs.
Anime Question Countdown
Another classic Anime North game show. Contestants are given an ever increasing number of clues to identify an Anime series, but for each clue you get will lower the points you could win! As your knowledge is challenged by the other contestants, your errors will be mocked by the audience, so it's a lot of fun for everyone!
Can you recognize almost any anime out there? Test your knowledge in this fast-paced game to see who can recognize more characters and shows! As the picture is uncovered, will you be the first to get it?
Are you an aspiring meme-creator? Compete against others to see who can come up with the quickest, and funniest captions for some of the strangest and most random pictures out there!
Anime North Family Feud
Just like on TV! Can you think like an average anime fan? We surveyed 100 fans about various anime-related questions! Two teams of five attempt to guess the top answers on the board. Whether logical answers are up there or not is anyone’s guess!
Dangan Ronpa Murder Mystery
UPUPUPU~ Someone has been murdered! And it's up to you to help us figure out who the culprit is. Talk to students, gather clues, and either sentence the murderer to death, or die trying in this completely interactive panel.
The Price is Right
Here it comes, for its second time at Anime North! The most exciting two hours of fantastic prizes! It’s time to come on down!

Anime Name that Tune: Team Tournament
This revived classic takes eight teams of two from the audience, and they're entered into a single-elimination tournament where quick knowledge of anime music makes or breaks your chances for big prizes. Audience members will also be eligible for prizes where the contestants are stumped. Bring a partner or meet one there!
Corey Hates the Internet - and So Can You!
