No Brand Con Puzzle Hunt

Nobody quite solved the puzzle hunt at the convention, though some came close, so we’re continuing it online!

Some small changes have been made to a couple of the puzzles to enhance clarity, but no answers have been changed.

Part of the General Store was a scavenger hunt where you had to locate 15 pictures of fictional thieves around the convention. Rather than force you to locate 15 pictures of fictional thieves hidden around the entire internet, I’ve condensed them into a single image. You’re welcome.

The first five No Brand Con 2016 attendees to email the correct metapuzzle answer to win free preregistration to No Brand Con 2017.

Good luck and happy puzzling!

Getting ready for STEAK VI!

We had a lot of fun at the Eau Claire Comics Hobby Expo this past weekend! For a first year event of it’s kind in the area, they had a very strong turnout! We definitely look forward to returning next year!

Next up on the No Brand calendar of events is STEAK VI! What the heck is STEAK you’re possibly wondering? STEAK was started up back in 2006 as a Fall table gaming event run by the UWEC Gamer’s Guild and No Brand Con Table Gaming committee as a kind of bridge event between each No Brand Con that happens in the Spring. Since then, STEAK has expanded from a two-day table gaming event to a three-day gaming event that includes table gaming, a video game room, and viewing theater for anime! The best part of STEAK is that it’s completely free to attend!

STEAK VI will be taking place in two and a half weeks during the weekend of October 7-9 in the UWEC Davies Center Skylight Lounge. The Skylight Lounge is located directly above the UWEC bookstore. There will be a handful of video game and table gaming tournaments run over the course of the weekend. We also do a food drive for the Eau Claire area Feed My People food bank. Anyone who brings in a non-perishable item will receive a free STEAK event button which we only give away during the weekend of STEAK! If you’d like more information about STEAK VI, feel free to check out the STEAK facebook page or ask a question on our STEAK forum. We’ll be posting updates as far as what tournaments will be run during the weekend as we get closer to the event. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates on STEAK as well as other con related announcements.

We hope to see you there!
