Killer Queen

Joshua DeBonis and Nikita Mikros

Two teams, each led by a powerful queen, face off to be the first to discover five precious jewels, equip their own queen, or assassinate the enemy queen.

“Killer Queen” is a live game which won Best in Fest at Come Out and Play 2011, and is the basis for the screen-based game “Killer Queen Arcade”, also showing as part of the Weekender at the Saturday night party.
