The Great TitanCon Quiz

Time: 12.00 pm
Room: King's Landing

Our author guests take on the Game of Thrones guests in a Family Fortunes (US: Family Feud) format quiz. This promises to be a lot of fun!

As I'm sure you probably know, the format of Family Fortunes is "we surveyed a hundred people and here's the most popular answers." Well, we need 100 people to answer the questions in the survey below and tell us the first answer that comes into your head. Your contributions will be essential to making The Great TitanCon Quiz an awesome success.

You don't have to be coming to TitanCon 2014 to fill in the survey, anyone can send in answers. Please see our Great TitanCon Quiz Survey page for the questions. Thank you.

We'll be thanking all the guests, contributors and volunteers that have helped run TitanCon and make at an enjoyable day.

We have some fantastic prizes up for grabs in our Raffle Prize Draw including signed goodies donated to us by George RR Martin himself. Raffle tickets cost £2.00 each and are available from the TitanCon Merchandise Desk opposite the Dragonpit (Dillon Room) in the main corridor throughout the day.

George also donated something truly special, a copy of Inside HBO's Game of Thrones hardback book written by Bryan Cogman that has been signed by Bryan Cogman, George RR Martin, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. We are going to open bidding on this special item signed by four of the principal creators of HBO's Game of Thrones at £100 and we expect it to sell for a lot more than that. We can only accept cash payments so please remember to bring plenty of money if you intend to bid on this rare collector's item.
