    Name: Do you see that enemy over there?

    Rules: You can ask what act the enemy is in but not the specific zone. Questions must be answerable with a yes or no and sometimes maybe. Player who wins must shout "Glorius!" at the top of his lungs.

    Blizzcon Candy Pot!
    Needed,
    3-5 glasses or bowels.
    *Several Bags of M&Ms. (you can buy only blue or red ones for a warcraft theme)

    Everyone brings or is given a bag of M&Ms . Then when the PVP and/or starcraft matches start one person starts by putting in a set number of M&M in one bowl/glass and someone can take the other side and put in as they did. The winner gets the whole Jar or glass of M&Ms. This game can be modified with other sweets or treats but since a week after halloween I know we are going to have a bunch of candy left over :).

    Damnit, there goes my idea.

    Okay, here's my second idea. Aptly titled "Where's Waldo Thrall?"

    Here's how you play. With 2-players, each player writes the name of ten characters on seperate slips of paper, and they are all put into a hat, and the hat is then shuffled. Each person then draws one slip of paper at the start of the festivities. Their role is to then watch and try to find their character (whether that character is a costume, on a poster, in a video, etc). Once they see their character, the player yells "Yahtzee Murky!" then puts their slip aside and draws another. This game continues until a specified time as decided by the players, or until the viewing is over. At the end, the player with the most slips wins. In the event of a tie, the remaining players play a game of Roshambo Hearthstone, and the winner of that game is declared the winner of "Where's Waldo Thrall?"

    The Name of the Game: Blitzcon
    Objective: Have a good time drinking with your friends while watching Blizzcon

    Rules: At the beginning of your Blitzcon game, everyone will write their name on a piece of paper. They will then place that piece of paper in one of two cups: one cup is marked 'New Class' and the other is marked 'No New Class'. This will come into factor later.

    Triggers:
    Your class is mentioned in conjunction with 'nerf' or 'nerf bat'. Take 1 shot. BONUS: If the phrase 'to the ground' is mentioned in the same sentence, Take a bonus shot while everyone else points and stage-laughs at you. They may choose to laugh genuinely if they have the mean-spirited nature required to do so effectively.

    Someone mentions the Dance Studio. Take a drink.

    Someone mentions new character models. Take a drink.

    Someone mentions faction favoritism. Take 2 drinks if you are a member of that faction.

    Anytime someone says OP or Overpowered. Take a drink.

    Someone in your group says OP. They take a drink.

    Anytime someone asks a lore-based question that you did not remotely follow. Take 2 drinks to wash away the sorrows of your ignorance.

    Blizzard recycles an old dungeon or raid. Take a shot and yell, 'COME ON, BLIZZ!' You know you're thinking it on the inside. Bonus: If it's a troll dungeon, Take a shot and 2 drinks and yell, 'OF COURSE IT'S A TROLL DUNGEON!'

    The guy who broke his leg in the dance contest at Blizzcon appears again. (Youtube it if you dare, but I still cringe when I think about it) Take a drink and hope he keeps it on the ground this time.

    They mention legendaries. Take a shot. (2 Minute Cooldown. Seriously, honor the cooldown. I won't be held responsible if someone finishes their rum before the hour is up.)

    Someone in your group says 'Called it' or 'Man, I totally called that' or any similar phrase as judged by the group at large. That person takes 3 drinks because nobody likes a wise-arse.

    Bonus Games:

    When the new World of Warcraft Expansion is mentioned, get out the 2 cups from earlier. When the details are out, everyone who guessed correctly gets to distribute 3 drinks. They may take them for themselves or they may give them to anyone who did not guess correctly. Caveat: No person who guesses incorrectly may take more than 8 drinks. Drinks may remain undistributed in the case that only one or two unlucky sods guessed wrong.

    Anytime Blizzard says or prints 'SOON', the first person to yell 'TM' or 'TRADEMARK' gets to assign a shot to someone, themselves included.

    Definitions:

    Drink - when the game specifies a number of drinks, this is a number of swallows of your beverage of choice, whether it's beer, cocktails, or the hard stuff. You set your own pace, but typically a drink will be larger than a sip and smaller than a gulp. If you're unsure if your swallow is too large, I recommend a diet and exercise until it's flight speed is that of an average unladen European swallow of similar size and disposition.

    Shot - This is 1 ounce of the hard stuff. Hard stuff is a relative term, but it's recommended that you go with something at least stronger than wine and weaker than a Pan-Galactic Gargleblaster.

    Trigger - A trigger is a condition that is or is not met during your Blizzcon viewing. If a trigger is met - that is, the thing happens or is said - then you do the proscribed activity.


    Addendum: While this game does encourage social drinking and entertainment value associated with such, alcohol poisoning is a very serious thing and it should not be taken lightly. If at any point you feel you've had enough, declare it thusly and take a break until you happen to feel you'd like to get back in the trenches. Should you think your friend(s) might be overserved, feel free to express concern and suggest they switch to water or coffee or tea for a while. Anyone who is currently sitting out from the drinking portion is still more than welcome to engage in the related shenanigans as this is - above all - a social game centered around the company and content that we all love (or love/hate. or wish we could break up with but picture in a cowboy hat while mouthing, 'I can't quit you!') and you don't need alcohol to express that mutual-love-hate-weirdcowboy thing.

    Gamblecon!

    The rules are simple, make small bets either with money or food or drinks or whatever you want, on what new content you predict. If someone's prediction is right on what new content will be announced, the win the round. The game is reset for every panel where they are sure to release new information on their games.

    The BlizzCon Drink-A-Long

    The objective is to get as wasted as you can as fast as possible. The winner will not remember a damn thing!

    To play you will need:

    1 bottle of Blue Curacao
    1 bottle of Vodka
    12 Pack of Mtn Dew Voltage

    Mix them all together in a large bowl/pitcher.

    Now for the rules.

    1 Shot:
    when Metzen says "Alliance will have their moment"
    when Greg Street smirks
    if Pet Battles are shown to have been a success
    for every fat Tyrande in the costume contest
    For every Sylvannas in the costume contest

    2 Shots:
    if LFR is brought up
    if CRZ is mentioned
    if Flex Raiding becomes the new normal
    for any Minecraftesque Costume in the Contest

    3 Shots:
    If some crappy band plays on the final night
    Everytime Metzen says "For the Horde"
    If Mike Morhaime mentions anything about Titan
    If said Minecraft costume falls over

    Down it all:
    If The Dark Below is the next expansion
    If the Live Raid actually defeats everything this year, even the hard cheating GM stuff
  • #14 GirlyKittyBoy
    Horde vs. Alliance Pride
    Party members split into teams representing either the Horde or Alliance and start with 50 'health'. Each time a faction battlecry (i.e. For the Lok'tar Ogar/For the Alliance) is heard on stream two points are subtracted from the opposing factions health. If said by a Blizzard representative, 5 points are subtracted instead. The first faction to reach 0 points or the faction with the least points at the end of the event is deemed the loser.
