What did YOU get/buy?

I didn't get much, but I did buy a lovely set of new D&D dice that I needed. And although I got it for free, I attained the Pokemon HG/SS bag. I feel like such a cool cat. My friends bought some card game that I can't remember the name of. It was silly and one of those games you'd play with your friends at two in the morning.


So, PAX Easters - what did you get/buy?

    We got our awesome BYOC goodie bags. My wife won a copy of Metro 2033 from the Oregon Trail contest. We bought a couple shirts, scarves, and a hoodie. Otherwise, some Turbine points, and random crap from different companies (marketing stuff). Edit: and a free game from Telltale. Not sure which yet... Monkey Island, perhaps?

    we got in earlier on friday and missed the keynote barely (my friend got in). i nabbed a skateboard after standing in line for a few minutes. at this time it wasn't too bad line-wise. i got a shitton of stickers from rockstar, skate 3, anamanguchi, and rock band. i got a few APB shirts and one of the free pokemon backpacks. also a shirt from THE GIG's smokey van.
    i bought a few things: pax east shirt (grey), glover for the N64, jet grind radio (STILL IN PACKAGING? came with two manuals for no reason), a "ask me about my zombie plan" shirt from rooster teeth, and a splosion man shirt from the twisted pixel booth. i also got an anamanaguchi CD and had them sign it, and i high-fived the lead guitarist after he signed my arm.

    overall i got a great haul :D

    The only thing I bought was a PAXEast t-shirt. I didn't see as many vendors selling video games. I was a bit surprised.

    Won a set of 3d vision glasses at the "3d" bad company 2 tournament!

    More of a curse than anything though, since I'll have to drop $1500 on my PC to get it ready to use them, but the end result will be worth it :D

    Other than that I got a ton of shirts and a rather nice ceramic Intel mug.

    First and foremost, I think I collected around 10,000 watts for the pokewalker this weekend by going around connecting with people. It seemed like I was linking up at least once every 5 minutes the entire weekend. I wanted to buy an Anamanaguchi T-shirt but they were sold out of my size when I finally got around to it. I did, however pick up some sweet stickers from them as well as a signed CD. I got the obligatory free t-shirts from Boston College and Power Gig. The Power Gig T has a funny story behind it. I just came from the Openchord.org booth where I picked up a button so I was asking the rep the difference between the two. I feel kinda bad because he seemed to give me a T-shirt just to get me out of there. What perhaps was the best swag I got all trip was winning the PA book in one of the line contests.

    Swag:

    Alas, I never have much money to buy stuff at the convention as I attend so many of them. Pax East is the seventh convention I've attended in this area since January, to give you an idea.

    Well besides the usual swag, I waited all weekend with the Game On Intel pin, but never got a card. Then on Sunday, right after meeting the guys from XPlay and getting their autographs, a guy from Intel comes up and hands me a card, and tells me 'I think you'll like this one'. So I go downstairs and wait in line, thinking I'm getting a t-shirt, then the lady scans it and yells,

    'Processor!!'

    Sorry for the story, but it was friggin' awesome.

    Also John Seggerson, very cool guy, gave me the complete series of Monkey Island.

    They had Zombie and Cthulhu Dice for sale at some point?! God, I'm sorry I didn't go to the SJG booth 'til Sunday...

    For myself:
    Skull the Troll plushie
    Signed copy of the first Starslip Crisis collection
    Move Minor Standard tee
    City of Heroes tee
    City of Heroes Hero Gear Kit
    Green APB tee (way too big for me, so woo, it's another pajama tee!)
    LOLbat and Retweet buttons
    Ugly American button (I don't know if they had different ones; mine had a leprechaun)
    Monster Slayer chit from the WotC booth
    Custom Magic card photo from one of the other WotC booths
    Munchkin Silver Piece

    And of course all the stuff that was in the swag bags. Neat haul, but next year I'm setting way more money aside for souvenirs! I would've added a signed copy of Memories of the Future and a whole lot more to my list if I'd had the money (and the time to wait for Wil Wheaton).

    My coolest snag of the convention was the skate deck that had the custom illustration of PAX on it and the "Draw yourself here" circle on the bottom. I managed to get Tycho and the VGO to sign it on Saturday, then my wonderful girlfriend got Gabe to draw, well, Gabe's face in the circle and sign it on Sunday since I couldn't make it.

    Can't wait to hang that bad boy up.

    Otherwise I got some cool stickers from the Rockband Lounge, put those on my guitar cases. Got a wrist band from there as well, which was neat. Lastly I got a Monday Night Combat shirt which I am wearing right now. :]

    Zombie Dice and Cthullu Dice were on sale (in very limited quantities) at the Complete Stragetis booth on the second floor. They actual release date isn't until later in the year, though, so you'll have to wait if you didn't get one.
