Join us in welcoming the Adventure Group!

We're the Adventure Group, a group of Chicago-based friends that goes to conventions, eats hot peppers, and has fun!

We try to put on panels that we've always wanted to see at other conventions. Stop by at our events and say hi, and like our Facebook page!


Panels & Events

- Anime Improv! -

Attention entertainers, class clowns, goofs, and other sorts of characters! Come and join in on Anime Improv! We'll be playing games such as Scenes From A Hat, Party Guests, One Word Stories, Switch, and Terrible Dubbing...all with an anime twist!

- Cosplay Chess -

Cosplay Chess is exactly what it sounds like - a giant game of live chess...with cosplayers as the pieces! You do NOT have to know how to play chess to participate in Cosplay Chess. We will have two game masters who will be moving you across the board. It is your job to come up with an attack scene and a death scene to spice up the game if you happen to take a piece or be “killed.”

- Hot Pepper Panel -

Want to join in the fun of watching others inflict pain on themselves for your entertainment? Come to the Hot Pepper Panel, where lovers of all things geeky eat a hot pepper and then attempt to explain the plotline of different anime and video games! Fun, laughs, and tears from peppers will be guaranteed.

- Jojo’s Bizarre Gameshow -

Think you know everything about Jojo's Bizarre Adventure? Join us for some JJBA-related games for some prizes. And of course, some crazy posing will be guaranteed as well.

- Jojo Yoga -

Develop your Hamon skills and perfect your stylish posing with this panel's instructions hosted by a completely illegitimate Hamon instructor! Master the photoshoot! Make the inside jokes! Prepare to fight off vampires or forsake your humanity...or make a fool of yourself with other Jojo fans.


Have nothing better to do right now? Come play a giant version of the interactive game Ninja with us! Fun, strategy and crazy (and sometimes awkward) posing is guaranteed!

- Wario’s Kamp for Wayward Kon-goers -

Join the Adventure Group as we play wacky interactive games together! You'll feel like you're playing those crazy mini-games from Mario Party...except you won't (necessarily) catch on fire if you lose! 

- Use Your Words LIVE –

Think you are witty or creative? Can you subtitle a scene under pressure? Or how about captioning a picture or headline? Come to this panel and use your phone to fill in the blanks and get laughs in a variety of mini-games while scoring points. This is a game for funny people and their unfunny friends. 


- Jackbox! -

Be a contestant or participate in audience votes! All it takes is your cell phone, quick fingers, and quick wits! Games include Quiplash, Drawful, and Fibbage! This event is for all ages, and the games will be modified as such.
