I'm always amazed at how many gamers don't know what PAX is. There's so many different kinds of convention, I think it's important to understand what to expect.
has been my best seller. Otherwise have them watch the Pax East episode of PATV.
I went with 6 last year, I've more than double my group this year with the trailer = P
Not necessarily. It's a pretty hefty investment to travel a long distance for just a weekend, especially for college students like myself and my friends. All in my circle agree that PAX looks awesome, but they can't justify the cost quite yet. Told one that I saw Molly Lewis playing Still Alive on a uke though and I think I may have given her proper justification. Now to work on the others.
But hey, I've been warning them for months now, since badges went on sale. Ya snooze, ya lose

Penny-Arcade the Series Season 1 - Episode 15: PAX East
PS: JuJu Is that you in the pictures near the end with all the pictures? Holding the Pokemon thingy?
But... I'm not sure if showing a trailer or video will actually make people want to spend money they don't have on a trip. Besides, PAX (at least to me) was much more of a personal experience compared to other cons. I PAX works if you hare a fan (if not a potential fan) of Penny-Arcade. If you love PA then you are bound to love whatever else other fans will tend to enjoy. PAX rolls from there. It's why they say PAX is about the people first.
You may want to get them interested in PA in the first place and all things associated to it.
That is so true yet it does not make an iota of sense to me. Whenever I talk about PAX to gamers (and I swim through them each day at the IT firm where I work), I usually get blank stares asking what the heck it is. I also have quite a few long term friends who now work in the gaming industry and not all of them really knows what it is.
Almost all of my close and/or long term friends did not show much interest in PAXEast last year, however after I came back with + 1 billion points of happyness, they started asking a few more serious questions. Even the most notorious non-gamer one. I know a few who have shown some serious interest in coming but this time around I said nothing. Besides I'm going there as a couple (again, which could not make me happier) and everything has been planned along those lines.
