Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
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!

All Passes are now SOLD OUT! Anticipation for badges starts now!

    there are still 1 day passes for each day left, and soon the Have a Pass thread will be going up.

    Don't give up hope just quite yet :)

    I can't afford over 100 for tickets. This will be the first PAX prime that I've missed...

    maybe I'll catch a spare ticket from the thread.

    Wow that's scary awesome.. At least it didn't sell out in a few hours like what I had to go through to get my San Diego Comic Con pass, but it seems to be approaching that milestone in the coming years.

    ouch, harsh!

    :(

    Keep an eye out for the "Have a Pass" thread, some people may not be able to go and will sell their passes there at face value.

    also, there are still many 1 day badges available for Fri, Sat & Sun

    I fear the Halo fans have gobbled up the 3 day passes. This really troubles me, as they are not likely to take any interest in the rest of PAX. I really hope I'm wrong about that though.

    Of course, if all the Halo fans are exclusively over at the Halo Fest side, that means that's that many fewer people everywhere else.

    also, to be fair, Halo Fest wasn't announced until there were already less than 1000 3 day passes left.



    Edit: wait, I'm dumb.. and my statement was actually incorrect. :P but still, there were not very many passes left by the time the announcement went out. :P

    I'm a Halo fan who bought her 3 day the day the announcement of sales went up on Twitter. Halo Fest announcement was like the cherry on top of a bacon-chocolate-cookie dough sundae, decorated with fireworks, brought to me by a unicorn.

    The only affect Halo Fest likely had on ticket sales was taking the estimated 12 days and bumping it down to 9. (the announcement that at current trends, 3 day passes would be sold out in 12 days went out 9 days ago, the announcement about halo fest was this week)

    Urghhh. I was at work all day and couldn't register. (site is blocked) And now they're sold out. If anyone out there has a spare badge for whatever reason and is willing to part with it, please let me know. :(

    This is not the place to ask for passes. Right now there are still single day passes up for sale. When single-day passes are further along, a thread will go up for people looking to get rid of extra passes. Until then, please be patient.

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE HAVE PASSES THREAD

    Typically 3-4 weeks before PAX, we allow a thread to allow people seeking passes after sellout from people who bought tickets, but can no longer attend. This will still be allowed to happen with one exception: From here forward, all passes must be made available at face value (at current that is $60 for 3-day passes and $35 for single day passes). Anybody who wishes to sell their passes for more than face value must do so off site (i.e. ebay, craigslist, etc).
    Posts will only be allowed from people who HAVE a pass they are selling, there will be NO MORE posts asking for passes.

    If somebody tries to sell you a pass through this thread above face value: Either PM Moe Fwacky or report his/her post or private message. Appropriate action will be taken to preserve this rule.

    When will the have a pass thread be going up?

    Once 1 days passes are closer to selling out, we'll post the thread. Please hold on to your passes until this thread goes up. Thanks.

    Bummer - I had no idea the passes were even in danger of selling out, or were going that quickly, as while I check the main Penny Arcade site every day, I only check the forums here once a week if that, and never the main PAX site. I was holding off until payday next week since I figured I had at least until June :(

    TWITTER MATE!

    Also you can still buy tickets for each day. It will cost more but they typically don't sell out as fast so i say you use that pay check buy a sat and friday pass then next pay check or when ever you can buy a sunday pass.

    Out already? Man, that was faster than ever this year!

    This is starting to become like BlizzCon, selling out within 10 minutes.

    Edit:
    What I meant was, if the trend keeps up, I'm afraid that it'll start to become like that.

    FUUUUUCK! I, too, was at work and just found out now! Damnit! And I'm already having a hard time keeping any extra money.

    PLEASE keep posting if any returned passes come in. Otherwise, looks like I'll be missing PAX. You can say wait 'til the thread for selling passes gets posted, but with my shitty luck, I'll miss out. Especially with how fuckin' fast 3-Days sold out.

    Well, being that buying three passes will amount to $105, money's a bit tight. I could have mentally justified $60 and just gone without certain things for a week.

    God, I wish I'd have known sooner that passes were almost out. I don't have always have time to get on the Internet and check this stuff.

    For once I am one of the people who got my pass(es) a while ago. It feels weird not having just made it or just missed it. Almost waited too long on the hotel too; the only ones available for the 25th-29th were like 5 blocks away. Then I refresh today and bam, Roosevelt. The stars are aligning. Clearly this is destined to be the best PAX ever.

    If by some chance my friend flakes out, I'll see that my extra pass goes to someone in need. Of course I intend to try my damnedest to make sure that doesn't happen, but you never know.

    *can't wait*
