(SPOOKY MAGICAL FANTASTIC ULTRA AMAZING) SUPER HAPPY ENVELOPE PRIZE GAME!!!--- Sunday 3pm - 5pm
Want a good reason to stay for Sunday at Shuto con? How about the Spooky Magical Fantastic Ultra Amazing Super Happy Envelope Prize Game! This year we have really made the grand prize round super awesome. If you never been to the Super Happy Envelope Prize Game this is how it works:
Tickets are given at the event entrance. VIP badge holders get 2 tickets, regular badge holders 1. We will call contestants up on stage by random ticket numbers. Once on stage we will have 30 envelopes with prizes, all numbered 1-30. The contestant picks a number and gets the prize in the envelope. Once the envelope has been picked it is out of play till the next round. There will be 2 rounds with a final round following round 2. During rounds one and two, there will be 5 envelopes containing passes to the Final round. These passes will be divided between rounds one and two with 2 passes in round 1 and 3 passes in round 2. Those contestants who select these envelopes go on to the final round for the grand prizes. The order of tickets found will be the order the contestants pick in the final round. The Final round will have 5 envelops of best prizes. One envelope will contain the grand prize.
