    Heleor is a jerk for hosting events when I can't make it. What a jerk. It's like he's a jerk or something. ;-)

    This thread is also a continuation of the discussions about the all day tabletop, LAN, and console gaming event in Seattle, now scheduled tentatively for the October 2nd. The facebook page for this event is http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/event.php?eid=153200951374572. We may end up using the same location for the event on the 2nd, as for Heleor's event on the 18th. So I would encourage people planning on going to one event, to go to try and go to both!

    It's okay, we can all teach :). (It's not like any of us know how to play all the tabletop games, anyway, so everyone is always learning.)

    I'm gonna see what I can do about attending both of those. All depends on my work schedule. I pretty much had to cancel going to Warped Tour and Hempfest just so I could go to PAX (it was totally worth it btw). So I'm not sure if I could secure more time off so soon. I put maybe on both facebook pages and I'll update them to "yes" if I get the green light.

    I could do the 18th. And I have some non-Forumers who may be interested in attending if this is open invite. We're usually hanging around playing Rock Band anyway on Saturday nights.

    Since I'm not trying to stuff everyone into my room, it's definitely open invite! The more the better. :)

    For the event on the 2nd... For now, we're still keeping the Sheraton Lobby/hotel room as the primary idea for the tabletop and console gaming. But the apartment complex party/media/conference rooms would be better, so we'll continue to look into holding it there. I would like to start getting a list of what games those who are interested plan on bringing? This is especially necessary with the console gaming, since we will need consoles, monitors/TV's, network cables, one or more hubs, and several copies of whatever games we want to play. We don't need xbox live to play, just then gear to system link. I've never done system link play with PS3, but I assume it's a similar set up. We're not sure yet if we can do a LAN, since the power usage may cost more if we do it the apartment venue mentioned above. But team fortress 2 is pretty cheap for xbox, so we wouldn't need a LAN to play that game. So if everyone could post what they intend to bring, then I can consolidate the lists and post it here and on the facebook page for all to see.

    I've got Orange Box for 360, as well as on my Lappy, so I can bring both. As for Tabletop, take your pick, I've Munchkin and Star Munchkin (Each with a few of the expansions.) I also have Munchkin Quest and it's lovely expansion. Also, if people are willing to throw down some RP, I've got 4e, Dark Heresy, and for something a lot more light-hearted and less intensive, Paranoia. :mrgreen:

    I have no idea. They didn't say there was any extra charge, but I'm still wary of doing full setup, especially since they only allow reserving for 24 hours.

    I'm a total forums lurker, but I'm also an Eastside resident and want to get to know my fellow Seattle PAX folks better. I've tentatively signed up for the LAN/Tabletop event.

    I can bring Carcassonne (the big box) and Monty Python Fluxx.

    I'd love to play other tabletop & RPG games (especially like to try Paranoia!).

    From what I read of Kobolds, it'd be hilarious to try.

    I <3 Paranoia so much. My favorite way of describing it is "The Marx Brothers and the 3 Stooges get jobs in Orwellian London.

    Well... this is only supposed to be a 24 hour event anyway. I don't think we would get banks of PC's... We've already got 13 atendees and 7 maybes... But I want to be on the safe side and assume only half of the people that RSVP as attending will actually show, because I know stuff happens and people have to drop out of events sometimes. So I don't think we're going to get more than 5-10 computers if we did do a LAN. People are alreadly intersted in this without LAN being for sure. I just want to have all 3 gaming worlds there, if possible. So people can switch instead of playing one type of games all day. So how would I go about reserving some of those rooms? Or do you have to be a resident of the apartment to do that?

    You have to be a resident to reserve things, which is the only reason it's so cheap.

  • RedwingedblackbirdRedwingedblackbird Island CountyRegistered User regular
    edited September 2010
    I figured that would be the case... which means we would need someone who lives there to reserve it. Do you pay the deposit in cash, card, check? And when do you pay the deposit?

    I'll thinking of bringing my Laptop for PC gaming and my Xbox with the flollowing games: Halo 3, Bioshock 2, Ghostbusters, Gears of War 2, Modern Warfare 2, Rockband 2, and the possibly the Orange Box and Halo Reach if I buy them before then. I also have 3 controllers and can probably bring a guitar for Rockband.

    AS for tabletop games, I was thinking of bringing Axis & Allies Pacific, and buying Battlestar Galactica.

    For the BBQ I'd prefer it to be a more social thing - I'd rather people didn't set up their computers, but obviously I wouldn't stop them.

    Tabletops are what I'm hoping people bring lots of!

    That's what I figured... you're just looking for basically an evening get together to hang out and socialize over tabletop games, that don't require extensive set up... not a whole day an dnight of gaming, like I am. So setting up computers wouldn't be worth it. I should be able to show, and I'll bring a couple table top games in addition to some food item to contribute.

    Yup! I'm not saying LAN parties aren't fun - but they need to be organized with more than a week and some change in advance.
