Hetalians and people of Banzai, have you ever had a question only a nation could answer? Well this is your chance to ask it! Bring your questions and come along to CosGame Production’s Hetalia – Ask a nation panel!
In Italy back in 2006 some sporty nerds came together to form the first LudoSport academy, a place where people could come together to practice the techniques designed for “real” combat with lightsabers. It has developed to a true sport and spread across europe. We are incredibly excited to have it at Banzaicon for (as far as we know) the first time in norway! Come along for a demonstration of the sport , as well as the chance to try it yourself! If you have your own combat saber (not vfx saber) feel free to bring it along. If not, make sure to show up early for the chance to borrow one.
May the force be with you!

We like to build stuff, and we know you guys do as well. That’s why we talked to some other folks who are really passionate about building stuff, namely the lovely people at Lego Norway! They are lending us a small mountain of legos, and we’ve dedicated a whole room to building and displaying your creations.What sort of world will you make?
Materials and techniques, characters and fandoms, conventions and well-known cosplayers, these are all subjects that may pop up in this cosplay quiz hosted by the CosCast. Lots of people are passionate about cosplay, but who can claim the title of the biggest cosplay geeks? Bring your friends, form a team and find out!
The CosCast also hosts the Cosplay Talkshow.
Our arcade is open all through the con, and filled with games both old and new. Whether you like to race, shoot things or even challenge your friends to a dance battle on DDR, we got something for you.
In addition to the regular gaming, the arcade will host the following tournaments and contests:
Friday 18.30 – Tetris Pluss
Friday 20.30 – Smash Bros Melee
Saturday 13.00 – Pokken
Saturday 16.00 – Tekken 3
Sunday 11.00 – Mario Kart 8
Sunday 13.30 – Altered Beasts
All weekend – Duck hunter – highest score.
After a long Saturday at the con maybe all you want do is go home and rest. Or maybe it’s just the opposite? Banzai never sleeps, and if you’re not ready to let the day go just yet, grab your dancing shoes and glow sticks and join us at our famous Saturday dance night!
Are you into Kpop? Have you spent hours glued to your computer or TV screen obsessing over dance steps? Well, here’s your chance to show off your moves in a kpop dance roulette! We’ve made an hour long compilation of some of the most known kpop songs and choreographies in the form of short clips. If you hear a song to which you know the steps, then don’t be afraid to throw yourself onto the dance floor! Each session will last for 1 hour and include a varied mix of songs from girl and boy groups throughout the past decade. This is not a competition so there won’t be any prizes, except of course street cred and maybe some new friendships! And loads of fun! If you like kpop but don’t know any dances yet, don’t be afraid to come and watch, because the more the merrier!
Warm up to saturday’s show-extravaganza by cooling it down with a game of Freeze! This is one of our our traditional Banzai games, where the audience gets to participate in improvising short scenes on stage, until they are interrupted and the scene takes a whole new turn. If you like things that are funny, impulsive and creative, this is your kind of game.
What’s better than blasting your favourite disney song and singing along at the top of your lungs? Why, doing just that together with your friends and all the other lovely people at Banzaicon of course! Join our mascot Kei on this journey through the best of disney music. Improvised performance, air guitar and dancing is encouraged!
