Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Post-PAX Tweetup! Because nobody has fun like the Twitter Shitters

Do you plan to spend a good portion of your time at PAX pounding out 140 character messages? Will you be trying for service constantly to see where people are and what's going on? Are you going to check in to Foursquare inside a bathroom stall?

Are you a Twitter Shitter?

Those denizens of Twitter will be holding our annual post-PAX revelry, and if you've been, you know it's not a party to be missed. (Maybe just don't ask about the car bombs until after midnight, ok?) Everyone is welcome, and we use this time to encourage those have been communicating with each other all year to put faces to 40x40 avatars.

THE WHEN: 9 p.m. on Sunday after PAX, and it goes til question mark.
THE WHERE: HG Lodge, located at 722 East Pike Street. Yelp
THE WHO: all the @'s you know -- See the PAX Twitter List

The HG Lodge site does not indicate that they are open late Sunday, but I've spoken to the GM, and they will be that night. Additionally, bring your PAX badges, since they are waving cover for us til 11. No dresscode or anything crazy.

    Sounds like another good time. Just need to remember to leave from the Convention Center, as walking 20+ blocks (half of which were uphill, iirc) to get there after being on my feet for three days was not the smartest idea I had.

    Awesome - just took a look at their site - looks good.

    I don't know if I'll be able to stay super (or even quasi) late as I've got plans from 9:30-10ish on that night, but is anybody angling to be there a little earlier than 9? Because I'd definitely be up for grabbing beers and hanging out.

    So apparently they aren't open before 9? I'm going to try and email them again to see if they would open the doors for us a little early. :)
    Also, stop by after! We'll be there til 2, I'm sure.

    This is a different venue than last year, and AFAIK, it's a little closer/easier to walk.

    2~ish block difference according to Google maps. It's a non-issue, though. Was a good time last year, looks to be a good time this year.

    It's really easy to get to, though. Just follow Pike until you get there.
    It shows up as the War Room when I do a googlemaps search for it.

    I'll prbly show up. Considering not even going to bed that night, anyway, since I've got to catch a bus to the airport at 3:30 AM anyway. I'll make traveling a challenge by drinking and not sleeping first. Like a game!

    People under 21 come to PAX? How do you live?

    Sorry, jokes aside. It's easier to have it at a bar. Sorry. :-/

    Our parties are a guaranteed great time. From humble beginnings in 2008 to a bonafide smash in 2009 - who knows what the PAX Twitter Shitters will bring in 2010?

    A game you're guaranteed to win! It always makes the flight more fun.

    I may be a maybe - depends on my other party members & probably won't know for sure until the night of.

    Pffft... I'm not even PAX interesting, but I must blend in enough with everyone else that not many people seem to have noticed yet. :P

    I know it was in the original comic and all, but wouldn't "Twitter Sh@ters" be more thematically appropriate? ;)
