Surveys show that more people fear public speaking than death. Therefore, we are happy to present Battledecks, the raucous PowerPoint game that will cure society’s phobia. Contestants present on random topics using a slideshow predesigned and provided for you. In place of judgment, there will be humor, and in place of stage fright, there will be confidence. Bring your friends and come just to watch, or be one of the audacious improvisers to take the spotlight!
