And the Winner Is…
After a long night partying and a long day playing Centipede, the guests of Pandoracon 2016 were eager to learn how their Houses had performed. It had been a long weekend. Apart from the live action arcade games, there were actual video game tournaments and other participatory events where attendees vied for points. Over the three days, the Houses rose and fell, jockeying for position as Closing Ceremonies drew near.
Then the final hour came, Aloysius Fox thanked visitors, volunteers, staff members, and special guests. And then, at last, the final House order was announced. House of Clubs sat in fourth after a long, tiring battle with the House of Diamonds for third. Hearts won second, and none other than Stixen Stones, Queen of House Spades took first for her House.
