For Nightmare 5: we're bringing back the duo of Danny Hassel ("Dan") and Lisa Wilcox ("Alice") from Dream Master and adding the great Kelly Jo Minter ("Yvonne"), Erika Anderson ("Greta") and Beatrice Boepple ("Amanda Kruger")

Live Event*: Saturday, April 3 · 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT

Live 1v1 Video Chats: Saturday, April 10 · 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT

We sold out AGAIN, so of course we've added a FIFTH game night, Saturday, April 24, at 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT.

SPIN Features Wizard World Signature Series! has taken notice of the Wizard World Signature Series, with an item last week on its website and its weekly newsletter.

From the article:

The wealth of livestream opportunities emerged as a happy coincidence for Wizard World, which was in the early stages of bringing live-streamed footage to in-person events at conventions like Comic-Con.

Wizard World plans to target a wide spectrum of affinity groups focusing on popular subjects. The Wizard World Signature Series both underscores the importance of affinity groups and offers fans a way to connect with each other in their shared love for specific topics as well as with the primary talent and influencers in those areas.
