Now Accepting Submissions!

Hello Mysterium attendees and friends!

With 2017 drawing to a close, we are excited to open up the submissions period for Mysterium 2018! In addition to the logo contest, we are seeking two other types of submissions:

Room Art

Since 2017, we’ve been incorporating posters, decorations, and other artwork from our talented community as decorations for the con room. We’d love to see what folks can create with this year’s theme of Sounds of the Ages. With fewer requirements than the logo contest, this is an excellent opportunity to let the ideas flow and demonstrate your skills to the community. Submissions are due by February 9th, 2018. For more information, check out the Room Art Submissions page.

Events

Mysterium can’t happen without the ideas of our community. If you’re interested in running an activity, panel, or presentation, we encourage you to submit your ideas by June 8th, 2018! Detailed submission instructions can be found on the Events page. We can’t wait to see your ideas!

 

That’s all we have for today. We’ll have some more updates to share in the coming weeks. Until then, the Committee wishes you all the best in 2018!

Mysterium 2018: St. Louis, MO

!Shorah tishmahtee

As announced this past year in Orlando, we are excited to be hosting Mysterium 2018 in The Gateway City, St. Louis, Missouri from August 3rd-5th, 2018!

The Theme

Continuing with the trend from last year, we have chosen not to have a specific Age as our theme. This year, our theme will be: Sounds of the Ages.

Logo Contest

With our theme announced, we are officially opening our Logo Contest! We encourage you to integrate this theme, along with inspiration from any Cyan game, in your designs. You can submit designs for the front and/or back of our shirts. More information about the design requirements and submission process can be found on the Logo Contest page. Submissions are due by by Friday, February 23rd.

Who’s running this show?

An excellent question! This year, the Mysterium Committee is being co-chaired by Odo and Drea!

If you’ve attended sometime in the last ten years, you might know him as “That Fellow Behind the Reg Table.” Odo has an extensive history of coordinating our location and liaising with the hotel events manager. As someone who has spent time working in St. Louis previously, he is excited to make Mysterium a reality in the Gateway to the West.

 

 

Drea has been our unofficial official puzzle maker for many years. A long-standing attendee and Committee member, Drea is always full of ideas for making Mysterium a fun and engaging experience for everyone.

 

 

 

We’ve already begun planning some exciting events and excursions that we hope to share with you all soon! That’s all we have for now. We should have some more information ready to announce in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

Mysterium 2017 Wrap-Up

Shorah all!

It’s been two weeks since Mysterium, and wow, I already miss you all. Is it 2018 yet?

Some wrap-up notes:

We’re looking to make a photo roundup available. If you’ve got any photographs from this year, please shoot committee an email with a link to it. We’ll be including a link to the Flickr group if you’d like to share photos there.

Please note: If you’re linking us to a photo album on Facebook or Google+ or other social media, please make sure it’s not set to friends-only viewing! Otherwise there will be lots of people who can’t see them.

For those of you looking for video, we’re working on it. We’ll make a post when that’s available.

I think 2017 was a lovely Mysterium. We had some really awesome events, and a gorgeous hotel. Mysterium’s heart has always been its attendees, and so I’d like to issue a final thanks to all of you who attended and made this a magical time. I’d also like to thank the stream viewers for tuning into us even though you couldn’t be here.

Thanks again, from the bottom of my heart,

Don’t Forget To Book Your Hotel!

Shorah all!

 

We want to remind everyone who’s planning to attend that the last day to book a guaranteed room in our block at the hotel is Monday, July 3! If you haven’t reserved your room yet, check out our locations page for more info about the hotel, or go straight to our booking page here.

If you’ve already got your room but are staying longer than the convention runs, have you requested your extension? You can book online for Thursday the 3rd through Tuesday the 8th, but you’ll need to use our extension form to request a longer stay.

The committee can’t believe Mysterium is only 5 weeks away.

The committee has been putting together a list of what they’re most looking forward to at Mysterium. My list is:

  • Seeing all my Mysterium friends
  • The theme for this year’s version of WWAB (it’s gonna be great!)
  • The Mysterium pool parties
  • Visiting EPCOT!
  • Being back in my home state again – ahh, sunshine

 

Can’t wait to see you soon,

Location Guide Updates

Shorah!

Two weeks ago, we posted a quick overview of major attractions in the Orlando area that you might want to check out while you’re at Mysterium. Today, we’re unveiling our more detailed location guide.

The guide should help you get acquainted with Orlando before Mysterium happens. We have a section on transportation options and how to get to the hotel from wherever you arrive in the city. We’ve got an expanded list of attractions you might want to visit – not just theme parks, we’ve got some museums and cultural attractions in there too. I know some people were planning theme park trips on our Facebook page, so if you want to go with others, try asking there. If you’re looking to bring home some souvenirs, we’ve listed places to shop. There’s also a local’s guide to great places to eat, including a few places for people with special dietary needs (like your con chair).

We hope this helps you plan your trip. If you’ve got any questions, please leave a comment or drop us an email. The chairs are happy to help you plan for a magical Mysterium!

As always, we’re looking forward to seeing you in Orlando!
