It is a mini-cosplay event designed to give you, the cosplayer, an extra event to participate in, without long waits for judging and showing. Hosted by the GPX Gaming crew.
Everyone gets to participate in our take of this old school game show (Hollywood Squares). We will pick cosplayers in the audience to participate as our squares (unless the convention provides guests) and contestants from the audience. The game is simple. The cosplayers/guests will be seated in Tic-Tac-Tie configuration and you will choose the spaces, we ask them a question, they can tell the truth, or totally deceive you on their answers. You get to agree or disagree...if you are right - you get the square. Prizes fountain out to you and the rest of the panel.
Test your old school gaming abilities against Todd Rogers (One of the greatest Video Game Hall of Famer's) in score attack, time attack and head to head on various of the old school arcades GPX will be delivering to AMA.
Are you a hungry Otaku / Gamer? Have you eaten at the con this weekend? What's that? No...? You have not eaten yet! Come and test the mettle of your stomach, see if you can eat the fastest or pack away the most Ramen! There are some surprises in store. We will be giving away all kinds of prizes to the last man standing. If you don't win, You at least get nicely fed.

Two video rooms will screen a mix of classic and the latest anime available in the U.S. We show subtitled and dubbed movies, OAVs, and television shows. Dubbed anime is usually shown to highlight the talents of voice actors who come to AMA as featured guests. We also like to mix in a few samples of live-action Asian cinema as well. A full schedule will not be posted until a couple of weeks before the convention. We are a family friendly convention so video ratings will be posted and printed for parents of younger children. More mature titles will be shown later in the evenings.
