SHUX 2019

You can pick up your badge/s at check-in Thursday night or any time during show hours at the Registration booth in VCC East. The person who purchased the tickets will need to pickup all badges bought under their name with photo-ID. If you will not be checking in with the person who purchased your ticket – and you have not already let us know – please get the person who booked the tickets to email us with the name and email address of the person picking up their badge/s.


We are so pleased to be working with the MegaGame Coalition this year for the incredible MegaGame lineup below. Peter Nixon and his team have been working for years creating great MegaGame experiences throughout the US and we’re are excited to have his work and passion at SHUX’19!

Join the MegaGames team for 5-8 hours of intrigue and subterfuge! Click the pictures below for more details. There will be a different game or two each day, so pick the one that excites you the most.

Tickets can be purchased in USD or CAD, make sure you choose your home currency. And please note you must have a SHUX ticket to join a MegaGame.
