Return with us now to the thrilling days of a few months ago– check out hours and hours of Classic Track panels from 2016!
Challenge of the Super Nerds is a trivia game, and it’s also a delivery system for geeky gewgaws and nerdy knick-knacks straight from our attics, our shelves, and our storage boxes — straight to you. As always, we invited audience members to clean off their own shelves and bring in cool stuff to give away as prizes.
Everyone at Challenge of the Super Nerds wins something. Whether you like it or not. (Watch out for Hulk cologne.)
The third Planet of the Apes movie was the only one with Ricardo Montalban, to our everlasting regret.
