Comic-Con 2015: The Nerdist Conival, BATTLEBORN Laser Tag, Panel Schedules, and More!

Pew pew pew! Gather your cosplay, phone chargers, hand sanitizer, and laser gun holster – ’cause we’re going back to Comic-Con, y’all! Last year, many of you came through in your finest con attire to check out our massive Borderlands-themed Laser Tag arena at Petco Park. This year, we’re going bigger, better, and even more badass. Join us, Felicia Day’s Geek & Sundry, and Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls back at Petco Park in Downtown San Diego for the Nerdist Conival!


We’re partnering with 2K and Gearbox Software for Battleborn Laser Tag, where two teams go head-to-head in our carefully constructed maze inspired by the new shooter game. Not only is the entire event free to the public, you’ll be able to play Battleborn‘s 5-player co-op story mode including 10 of the 25 characters coming to the game. The Conival will also have Geek & Sundry’s take on The Joust, a TableTop area for game demos and open play for game lovers of both the analog and video variety. Not to be outdone, Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls will have its own section dedicated to arts and crafts, and learning how to build robots (use them for good, not evil!) with Meredith Walker and our resident STEM smarties.


And of course, it wouldn’t be Comic-Con without all your favorite nerd stars. We’ll have live interviews on stage with Felicia Day, Wil Wheaton, Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, Daniel Radcliffe, and much, much more. Check out the full schedule right here right meow!
