    Wait a second, I thought it was the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of September?

    I need confirmation of this ASAP because I've already got a room on hold for Sept 2-4 at a timeshare and if I have to change it, it needs to happen NAO.

    I don't know for sure but couple weeks before or after PAX East (which is March 11-13). They are going to be a little bogged down with that event coming up, so somewhere within that time. Passes do not usually sell out until month before (don't quote me on that). So just check in around that time.

    Sweet sounds good to me, have more time to get money together for everything then.

    I'm sorry that I was unable to attend, I have a spinal condition and by that time I was pretty out of it and just following my group. That does not excuse me missing the meeting. I hope to see you this year we have a large group of fun costumes going with us.

    I asked off for work yesterday. Because PAX Prime is a week earlier, I won't be able to get time off for it, so I probably won't be there :-( I work at a university and PAX is now during our first week of class. I can get off work at the end of the second week, but not the first.

    Going to try over the next few months to at least get Friday off so I can fly out Thursday evening or Friday morning... I was really looking forward to attending again :-(

    Sorry, bit new here, hope somebody can answer a bit more clearly than the PAX Prime site. So the Badges for 2011 Prime haven't even gone on sale/open for registration yet right??

    When I go to the PAX Prime site it says all badges are Sold Out, don't know if that means for 2010 badges or 2011 ones.


    And yes it will be my first PAX ever, I hope!

    Pax Prime 2011 badges are most definitely not yet on sale. Usually the con-goers don't see any Pax Prime action until Pax East is over (though there is much work going on behind the scenes I'm sure).

    Glad to have a new member, the tickets are not sold out (that was from 2010 message). I don't expect them to go for sale until March unless they have time to set it up. With PAX East happening around the 14th of March, they are very busy getting ready for that. They don't usually sell out until July but get them when they come out. I hope this has helped and that you enjoy your first PAX Prime.

    Thanks, was just checking it was a bit confusing hitting the PAX Prime site and it saying Badges are all gone.. lol.

    And thanks for the greeting! I've kind of always been one of those long-time listeners with PA crew and PAX and this was my 'first time caller' so-to-speak.


    Needed to because I've been working on going to PAX for 2 years now, and I think this year will finally be it!

    Well looks like PAX lines up with my first week of classes. I guess I will be missing national syllabus week! Oh darn. If any of my teachers have a problem with it then I am going to say too bad cause I have had plans for PAX since last years PAX and they didn't have the schedule for classes posted then. Hooray skipping! If any of them have a huge problem then I will go to the attendance office to get it excused as a family wedding (which for some reason they fully excuse for at our college but not family reunions)

    I didn't see any threads about this, so forgive me if I've overlooked somewhere to ask about this.

    This will be my first year going to PAX Prime. My biggest concern is reserving the hotel room. I know there is a reservation system available but I wanted to know how it worked.

    *Do you get to choose your hotel or is it basically first come first serve?
    For example, I go to GenCon Indy every year and I use their hotel registration system. With their system as soon as they open reservations all of their hotels surrounding their convention are filled within a half hour. Then you have to frantically search for other rooms so you don't end up all the way across town. The only way you can get the hotel you really want is to pay extra money for a "Very Important Gamer" pass and you'll get to choose your hotel early, plus you're guaranteed one of your top 3 hotel choices. Is this similar to how the registration works?

    *If you don't get the hotel you wanted, is there a wait list?

    *How early does hotel registration begin?

    *Are there any group rates?
    Another example, Gencon (sorry, Gencon is the only con I've done hotel registration with) has great deals if you go through their registration. If you look on the hotel's site or even somewhere like travelocity the hotel you want could be 400 a night but with the GenCon hotel reg it's knocked down to 180 a night.

    *Are there any hotels close to PAX that can house over 4 people? I have a group of 5 that may turn into 7. I know some hotels have a limit while other hotels can be built for larger numbers.

    *Overall, is PAX hotel registration a better deal/easier to book than going through a third party like expedia/hotels/etc?


    Sorry if some of these questions seem obvious. I looked around the PAX Site and couldn't see any FAQ on the hotels.

    They'll have group of hotels available to choose from that will have discounted PAX rates.
    No wait list, but you can always try to book directly at the hotel at their normal rates.
    Think all of the PAX hotel rooms max out at quad occupancy. If you need more, probably have to book with hotel and not at PAX rate.
    Easy enough. Register, pick hotel, pick dates, enter billing, done.

    Good afternoon, first time posting, so I apologize if this has been asked in the past.

    I was wondering if it's possible to buy passes for friends as gifts, or if I have to actually have them sign up on their own. Was planning to take a friend as a surprise birthday gift, but am worried about ruining the surprise if I have to have her fill out everything on her own. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Thank you.
