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 2017 Room Shares - please read the OP!

While strict enforcement of the one post per person rule has cut down heavily on the reposting to get on the front page, it has also caused some problems with posts that need modified late in the game but are stuck on an old page.

There is still a one post per person policy, but I will be starting to cull posts from the thread that have been struck out or marked as no longer valid. I will try to do this as necessary, but there will not be a hard schedule for this purpose. This will mean that there should not be a wall of inactive posts to sift through in order to find active ones. Also it means that if someone had a post that was culled from early on, they can freely re-post it later if shit went south. If you abuse this, your ability to post in this thread will be revoked entirely.

Post here if you are looking to share your room, or looking for a room to share. Please keep your posts up to date!

YOU MAY NOT POST HERE TO TRADE ROOM SPACE FOR BADGES.

You get ONE post in this thread per UNIQUE room share situation. Do not re-post your offer/request. Re-posts will be deleted.

If you need to modify your post and cannot edit it yourself (accounts below a certain participation threshold), PM me and I will make the edit for you. Not having permission to edit is not a valid excuse for re-posting.

If you *really* think you have a good reason to post for a second time, PM me first.

    Additional Notes/Requests:
    I ask for a non refundable deposit to hold your spot this is just to cover my backside so I dont get screwed over if people drop out cause believe it or not even with the deposit I have had people drop out. This will be my 4th year doing this and have never had any issues at all. Any questions you can feel free to ask me or the people that have roomed with me and they can tell you about there experience. The deposit will be 60.00 and once I get that I will hold your spot. Rest of payment will be needed a few weeks before pax so I have all the money in my bank account when the hotel takes it out. All deposits and payments can be made through paypal. Any questions just ask and look forward to hearing from you guys.

    Additional Notes: Usually I organize, but this year I missed out. I'd strongly prefer one of the closer hotels (Westin, Element, Seaport, Aloft, Renaissance) as I often need to go in and out with some photo gear. Floor is workable as I can bring an air mattress, but of course I'd rather have a bed!

    Additional Notes: I'm an old married fart (I'll have just turned 40 a few weeks before PAX) so I'm a pretty low key roommate. I'll probably be out for the concerts both nights, and really just need a floor to crash on for the two nights and a shower. I've missed the past few years, but this will be my fourth PAX East overall. The only caveat I'll give is that we may be in the process of buying a house and that might mean I can't give you a deposit until early 2017 if you want one (downpayments suck).

    EDIT: ALL SET!

    Additional Notes: I don't smoke, don't drink, don't party. I'll probably be at the concerts. Just need a space to sleep and somewhere to shower in the morning. I don't need a bed, I'm totally fine with the floor. I tend to buy a bunch of board games so somewhere in walking distance would be great. Ideally, I'm looking for 1 spot at the Westin. I have funds put aside for this so a deposit isn't an issue. Let me know if there's any questions at all! Thank you.

    Notes:

    This reservation is for a single bed room. There is a sofa in the room, but will not know for sure if its a sofa bed or not till closer to the convention because of how they currently have listed on-peak. The hotel has 2 types of rooms. (King only and King + Sofa Bed).

    So I prefer to go on the conservative end because the king only rooms are smaller.

    Enough exactly for 2 people on the bed, 1 person on the couch and room for 1 twin airbed in front of the kitchen or door area (hardwood floor so airbed is recommended).

    Additional Notes: Before I agree to split the cost with you, I want to get to know you a little. I'm a private kind of person and I've never done room sharing with a stranger before. I'm a quiet, laid back person but I have a schedule for myself when it comes to my stay in Boston. I also visit the gym while I'm there so I have a spot where I put my workout supplements as well. I might go to one party and I do occasionally go to the bar in the hotel in the evenings. If you think we can get along, feel free to send me an email with "room sharing" in the subject line and I'll get with you when I get the chance. Thanks in advance!

    **EDIT** Thursday through Monday have been taken. I do have Wednesday open if you are looking to stay a night for whatever reason.

    In an interesting bind, because I already have an Air BNB, so I'm either looking to cancel it and join someone, or have more in my room.

    I am legally blind (and a cosplayer), and the max number of people I want in the room total is 4, for safety and mobility reasons. On my end, it's me and one other, nonsmoking, so I'm looking to add 2 people or join 2 people.
    I need a bed or pullout. I'm blind and older (30+), and don't want to sleep on the floor.

    HAVE SPACE AVAILABLE:

    Hotel: Air BNB a block from hotel (<5 minute walk). Includes a queen and a pullout bed in a luxury apartment with kitchen.
    Total Cost: $125 per person per night (won't charge you for days you come late or leave early)
