Hello Champions, my name is Cindy. As Head Planner for SheaCon 2023 I need to give a loud shout out to the amazing work of all the planners. They are responsible for creating many of the new activities and preparing old ones to return.
We have a slew of Shea/Sohma themed activities broken up into three categories for you to enjoy! Solo Activities for you to complete on your own, Interactive Activities for you to participate in via text chat channels, and Hosted Activities at scheduled times in voice channels run by a pair of hosts who will lead the fun.
- Returning and new solo activities will be in the Printable Activities channel and include Mad Gabs, Madlibs, Buzzword Word Search, Quote Cryptogram, Magical Creature Word Unscramble, and Trivia Crossword.
- In our puzzle channel you will find many virtual jigsaw puzzles of Kitty’s book quotes and cover images.
- Match your wits against a series of four puzzle challenges in our new Retha-themed virtual escape room!
- In our Art channel you can post Kitty fan-art or pictures of a KM Shea/AM Sohma character cosplay you’ve created.
- Do you like riddles? Do you like Emojis? Then step right into our new channel full of Emoji Guessing Games!
- The Vintertainment Writing Collaboration is back! Vin will start with a prompt and each Champion will have the opportunity to write a few sentences at a time to contribute to the new story.
- Vote for your favorite magiford snack in Snack Smackdown! Will it be Chips, Granola bars, Popcorn or Doughnuts?
- The fan favorite Drawing with a Twist will be back! Follow a series of drawing prompts and see which Shea/Sohma scene unfolds.
- Test your mettle in a round of K. M. Shea themed trivia Kahoot!
- Test your intelligencer abilities in Codenames! Codenames is a virtual card based guessing game with a spy theme.
- Pull up a Bingo card and listen carefully as your host calls out familiar Kitty related words
- Hosted Elven Star Stretches will get your muscles moving after enjoying so much time sitting during SheaCon. (These will be similar to Aldelbert’s Glory Stretches from 2022!)
- Read-alongs will allow champions to read one of Kitty’s short stories or a chapter of one of her books together.
- Vin will be running her famed Writing Sprints on Saturday.
- Vin will also be hosting a LotRO (Lord of the Rings Online) watch party as she and others from the kin run around Middle Earth. If you’ve ever wondered what Retha might look like, be sure to join in.
All this is in addition to the panels with Kitty, guest author panelists, and Retha and Dragons, a Dungeon and Dragons game with an Age of Retha twist! We are very excited to see you at SheaCon 2023, so be sure to mark your calendars for July 28th through 30th!
