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!

We are the Cookie Brigade. We'll always save the day... We'll always find a way

WHO WE ARE:

The Cookie Brigade is a ragtag group of Penny Arcade Forumers who have assembled since PAX 2007 to provide our fellow gamers with delicious baked goods! Cookies are baked by forumers, brought and shipped from afar by forumers, and distributed by forumers!

The Cookie Brigade does not sell cookies. We give cookies away for free.

Brigadiers also accept donations to Child's Play, which are entirely voluntary but greatly appreciated!

And it's very convenient to get a cookie and give a donation at the same time.

Starting in 2007, the Cookie Brigade began a mission to give these cookies in exchange for donations to Child's Play, the charity started by Mike and Jerry that provides entertainment to kids in children's hospitals. Since starting on this mission, the Cookie Brigade has raised over $300,000 mostly by the handing out of cookies and the reception of donations from the incredible, amazing, and generous PAX community! In 2016 alone we raised over $70,000 for Child's Play! Woooooot! Thank you everyone for your generous donations; you have helped an awesome cause!

I WANT TO HELP IN THE BRIGADE!


If you're interested in
  • Baking delicious cookies
  • Distributing to people during PAX
  • Helping organize cookies and distributors

We can definitely use your help! Sign up at our website, http://cookiebrigade.org if you wish to participate in the organizing, baking, and/or distributing!

An important note: due to certain external pressures on the Brigade we have to keep some of our more sensitive planning operations private. If you sign up on the Cookie Brigade website you will have access to our public forums but will need to submit an application through the site to become a brigadier. Thank you for your understanding!


BASIC BRIGADE GUIDELINES

  • We give out cookies, we do not sell cookies! We do happily pass all donations along to Child's Play, so feel free to give us donations if you want.
  • Keep it PG and family friendly. We love to give cookies out to kids and as such we ask all brigadiers to remain family friendly with their cookies (sorry no dickerdoodles) and distributing activities!
  • Have fun and enjoy PAX!

    Yes, the PAX cookie sirens are returning! Our South crew is pretty small, so please consider joining our group of awesome people. Distributing cookies can really add to your PAX: you meet people you otherwise wouldn't, they make a good ice breaker, and most people like you after you hand them a free cookie :biggrin:

    Still waffling on whether I'm going to cookie this year. I did year 1 and made a bunch of chocolate chip cookies (All By Myseeeelf) and it was a lot of work. I really wanna do peppernuts, but those are an even more ridiculous amount of work to mass produce. If i can rope in a couple friends to parallelize the baking process maybe.
    This year I'm driving down so I'm not as limited by luggage space too.

    Edit: But handing out cookies was fun. Everybody loves seeing a cookie bearer.

    Ok, i happened to run into a friend who has mass produced peppernuts in the past for her job, and she gave me a few tips. Gonna make a batch or 2 this week to see how it goes.

    This is the coolest idea! I'll try to bring some but I'll be there cosplaying all day and there might be... logistical issues.

    I will be at PAX South this year guys! I am a gym leader in the PAX Pokemon League, so i will NOT be going hardcore like i have in previous years. BUT I am happy to still stock and distribute cookies in the Pokemon area if needed :)

    I think they tend to prefer candies. RARE candies.

    Just don't ask what the candies are made of.

    Cosplayers make great distributors! You're already drawing attention to yourself, why not give out cookies at the same time?
    What sort of logistical issues? If your face is covered or you don't have a free hand, we can pair you with someone else to help.

    I just had an idea: Someone should sit in handheld as the "pokestop" and hand out cookies. Quick! Someone make me a spinnable pokestop hat!

    Bonus points if you're cosplaying as No Face from Spirited Away. Holding out cookies going "Ah. Ah."

    I wish the cookie tins were going to be available at South, but I'll make due waiting for the shipping availability and just get additional cookies.

    We raised just over $12,000 for Child's Play!
    We wound up with about 15 distributors and plenty of cookies (even a few leftover).
    :D <3

    I completely forgot to grab my cash stash that I keep for conventions, which effected my merch purchasing, but I made sure I kept the little bit of cash I did have for some cookies!

    You all did an amazing job! I was able to snap up some anise cookies...pillowy soft, even on Sunday! I'm hoping there will be some of those Pokémon cookies next time, those looked so awesome.

    Glad you liked the anise cookies! I ended up making way too many of them.
