Space Pope – Gaming can save lives

26. September 2016 Captain NoBeard Activities, Arcade and boardgames, CosPositive, Guests, Panels and workshops 0 Comments

When Charles White isn’t sending rockets into space with NASA you may just find him playing EVE Online. Better known online as Max Singularity, the Space pope, he has had tremendous experience with the game, and has worked with the company to improve the development of in-game roleplaying. This is a game is incredibly community-oriented with high levels of player interaction, and the pope himself has some amazing stories to tell to prove it. He will also talk a bit about the “Broadcast for Reps” program, an initiative where suicidal players in need get help from other players.

NASA – A new rocket for space

26. September 2016 Captain NoBeard Activities, Guests, Panels and workshops, Stage shows 0 Comments

We all know Star Trek, Star Wars and tons of other sci-fi space adventures. But the universe doesn’t need Vulcans or Jedi to be interesting. Space in real life is endlessly exciting and intriguing, and we are very happy to have a guy on our stage who knows more about it than most. Join Charles White from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory for a special presentation on the building of NASA’s new SLS rocket and what is planned in the next few years for manned spaceflight. He’s also going to tell you a few things about the solar system they did not teach you in school.

Kpop Dance Roulette

25. September 2016 Captain NoBeard Activities, Dances and parties, Fun and games, Stage shows 0 Comments

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!

Freeze!

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.
