Everyone knows the story of Santa Claus dispensing gifts to the good children on his list, but in provinces of the former Holy Roman Empire, he has a dark companion: Krampus. This horned, cloven-hooved figure, who dates back to pagan Europe, travels alongside Santa, dispensing justice to wicked children with his birch switches. Though the Krampus tradition is thousands of years old, he has long struggled to escape the shadow of Santa—that is, until the Kramps Con Bizarre Bazarre 2018 at ABU Games. On Saturday, Dec. 8, swing by the popular game shop for all-day gaming, a costume contest, guest speakers, vendors and more.
