The National Piak Cockroach Championship and National Water Bottle Tornado Championship will both take place, with winners of each tournament getting the chance to bring home $888 in cash.
In addition, the iconic Beam of Pain from Artbox 2023 will return as the Hopscotch of Pain, with an additional twist. This time, participants will make their way across acupuncture mats by only hopping on one leg. Qualifiers and finals will take place throughout both weekends.
There will also be Creators’ Deathmatches, where SGAG personalities come face to face with your favourite creators in a series of challenges. Deathmatches will take place all over the weekends, so keep your eyes peeled for the next upcoming one.

Your session will take place in a cozy, decked-out soundproof karaoke container, so you can belt out your best tunes with zero fear of judgement from anybody else.
On top of the free karaoke session, Artbox ticket holders will also get a free VR or Switch gaming session at the Gamestop Arena.
For the more competitive among us, check out the Arcade Alley. Challenge your skills on the rows upon rows of racing games like Mario Kart, or try your luck on any of the claw machines to bring home a new cuddly friend.
