Greg Wicker (or “Greggo” as he’s fondly known) has been producing and hosting game shows at anime conventions since 1999, when he premiered Anime Match Game at Project A-Kon in Dallas. Since then, Greggo has done anime-themed versions of several classic game shows, created a few games of his own, and even had an original project that very nearly turned into an actual television show on Anime Network. These days Greggo is concentrating on perfecting his craft and making game shows available for conventions everywhere, bringing his rapier wit and friendly personality with him wherever he goes. You can see some of Greggo’s past game show efforts on his YouTube page at www.youtube.com/gregdasgo or visit his website at www.facebook.com/greggosgameshows.

Wow! We’re at 4 days post-con now and we’re still overwhelmed by the experience. The love and support you all showed us is immeasurable! On the other hand the attendance #’s we could indeed count and honestly they were stunning. Throughout the entire weekend we had 1,850 paid attendees pass through our doors!!! We were quite shocked on our first count; however, the tally kept coming out the same after checking 2 more times. So that’s it…thanks to your help we increased attendance by 268%!
Now the question in part is where do we go from here? Well we’ll be letting you know ASAP our 2014 dates; however, you can be thinking towards next year’s Anime Blast Chattanooga right now by letting us know what you liked, what you didn’t like, who you want to see as a guest, what events you’d like to see, and definitely be thinking about any panels you yourself might want to submit for Anime Blast 2014.
