Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
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!
[EAST] Pre-PAX East 2012 Gaming Night - Thursday, April 5, 2012 - Westin Waterfront Hotel
Haven't seen a thread about this yet, so I figured I'd go ahead and make one.
This was one of my favorite events last PAX. Last year, a bunch of us gathered in the lobby at the Westin and a lot of people had TTG's. It was a great way for those like me who went to PAX alone to meet new people, yet also try some new games or play a few classics too. I recall a few epic games of Pandemic, and a little bit of Munchkin and Dominion as well.. and it was a great time. So, I want to see it happen again!
Ideally, the night begins around 6:00pm on Thursday, April 5th. at the Westin Waterfront Hotel. We will be gaming on the mezzanine level, a change from last year [thanks, @LexiconGrrl]. The hotel has stated they will set up tables and whatnot for us.
I recall last year having about 50-60 people at least. A concern some had was that it runs right along with the Pre-PAX Dinner/Crawl, and the train doesn't get in until later... but we seemed to have plenty of people regardless, and more just joined as the night progressed. There's only two things we need for this to work:
So if you're interested, feel free to post! I myself will be bringing along Zombie and Cthulu Dice - flying with other, larger TTG's is kind of unpractical.
Edit: Go ahead and add Cards Against Humanity and Pandemic! to my list, as well.
Looking for a game/group at PPE Gaming Night, or the entirety of PAX for that matter? We will be using the hashtag #ttlfg on Twitter. You can also follow @TT_HQ for updates on games throughout the weekend.
Don't use Twitter/don't have a smartphone, etc., but want updates? If you've got a cell phone that can send/receive text messages, you can text follow tt_hq to 40404. I did this my first PAX for the lines, and the Official PAX feed... it helped me keep up with everything, and didn't rely on shaky data connections!
