MindQuake carnival is all about getting to know each other with fun party games! Bring your carnival tickets and enjoy the following:
Khatsha Presents Consent Spin the Bottle
This fun activity lets us play with random people in a consensual way. We spin the bottle and the person designated has to suggest three activities they’re willing to do with the spinner. One has to be a no-consent-required activity such as reciting poetry or fetching a drink. The other two can be as hypnotic or sexual as you want them to be, from “very” to “not at all.” The spinner then gets to choose one of these activities, and the next person in the circle becomes the new spinner.
Are you feeling very sleepy – or wanting to make someone else feel that way? Come to the Hypnochair – the take-a-penny, leave-a-penny dish of trancing! Come and meet resident hypnotist Lily “millenomi” V, demo subject Noelle, and mentor SFHypno. Consent is key in the hypnochair!
Alizabeth’s Favorite Party Game
A great activity to find out more about each other in a low pressure environment, we start with a kinky hypno question and each participant writes their answer on a note card. We collect the answers and read them out loud, one by one, guessing who wrote the answer – and yes there are prizes!
Mephki Presents VR
For the VR demo, She is flexible… she can do what people are interested in. Beat saber. Mind melting machine. Soundself. Step up and try it out!
9:00 pm-11:00 pm
Get to meet people and trance them in a flash! Hosted by MrDream, this is a great way to practice trancing with a variety of interested people in a low-risk environment.
Alizabeth and Phil’s Hypnotic Variety Show Extravaganza!
8:00 pm – Ballroom
When it comes to late-night hypnocon entertainment, you can’t beat Alizabeth and Phil’s Hypnotic Variety Show Extravaganza – at least not without getting consent first. Don’t miss their collection of fun acts guaranteed to delight! The alluring and playful Alizabeth joins her Master, the equally sexy and hilarious Phil. The daring duo puts the “MC” in “emcee” with fantastic acts and hilarious jokes.
Pet Parade and Petting Zoo
9:00 pm – Party Floor
The Pet Play Party room hosted by Marque De Carabas invites you kitties and pups and bears to stop by to play and enjoy hypnosis to enhance your transformations. This party culminates in a parade and zoo in the halls, ribbons to the participants, and maybe onlookers can consensually play with the creatures created.
11:00 pm-12:00 am – Quiet Room
Break the rules of decorum and decency and join the famous mystical medium Mistress Ambrosia in the intimate spaces between the realms. We will contact infamous hypnotists from beyond the grave and ask them to step back into this life, using her earthly vessel to communicate now with the living. With the use of an Ouija Board, guests will be able to communicate directly through her receptive body with our hypnotist spirit. Playful antics from the likes of Mesmer, Svengali, and Rasputin will fill you with wonder and perhaps trances and hypnotic titillations as Mistress Ambrosia allows the intercourse of the spirits to flow through her. What will you ask of an entity from beyond?

Goodbye Movie Night- Donnie Darko $10
8:30 pm – New Parkway Theater
Sign up for the movie night on the 14th floor at the ops desk to watch Donnie Darko with all your friends. The New Parkway Theater is an amazing theater with a cafe and pub with a living room like feel. They are excited to host us and are even baking us a cake. The theater has couches, loveseats, and bean bag chairs; perfect for cuddling and snuggling. There will be non-convention-going vanillas joining us, but the venue is catering to us! We picked the movie, we get to go in and hang out before the movie, we pick the seating, they know who we are and why we’re there. An added bonus – the hotel shuttle will be able to take us to the theater!

Party Floor/Hospitality Suite
Thursday-Sunday All Night – 12th Floor
Check out the whiteboard on the 12th floor in the hospitality suite to see what kind of fun is happening. The 12th floor is reserved exclusively for MindQuake guests and you must have your badge. Nudity and kinky scenes are allowed! The 12th floor is sex positive, but please be respectful of those around you and have a towel between your naked self and surfaces. Staff always have the right of way, they are on an opt in basis and are aware of our conferences nature, they are not supposed to be on the floor unannounced, but the We Love Our Hotel rule applies if hotel staff is present.
The Hospitality suite has snacks and drinks if you need a quick pick-me-up; Probably a baked good or two from the official unofficial MindQuake baker Enscenic. You can also take a little break and use the space to socialize.
