Saturday's WIZARD TRIVIA, sponsored by Markster Con, was hosted by HUNGOVER ENTERTAINMENT at the Savannah Taphouse. It was no surprise that the event was packed and reached max capacity early on and after several rounds of tough questions trivia teams Slytherdor, Chuddly’s Cannons and Flitwicks walked away with the most points and some great prizes!

After it was all said and done the WIZARD PROM crowd was presented their Wizard King & Witch Queen. The judges picked their Top 3 from the male and female entries and then the crowd helped pick their King and Queen by cheering and clapping. So many wonderful costumes, make sure to visit the photo links above to see more!

During the Wizard Pub Crawl attendees collected points (via badge punches) by visiting the various venues and by also using Snapchat filters to secure bonus house points, which were tallied at the Graduation Gathering at Savannah Smiles at the end of the crawl.

Blue House (Eagles): 1,740 points

Will there be another WIZARD WEEKEND? Will there be more events like these?

Savannah's WIZARD WEEKEND was such a great experience and success! We've already had many attendees ask when we'll be doing it again. Well, first off, in addition to these Wizard themed events Markster Con will be bringing more of it's tried-and-true geek-themed events to Savannah this year (and next) so keep reading below find out more. And yes, we will be bringing back WIZARD WEEKEND in 2019! The most common complaint we heard was about something that we don't have control over— the heat — so we have decided (tentatively) to move next year's Savannah WIZARD WEEKEND date to April 13th & 14th, 2019 (tentative) in hopes that the change in date by two months will help alleviate that issue.
