    This is my second year at PAX East but first time at the Pokecrawl... will I be shunned if I have never played Pokemon? :(

    I've never played a game of Pokemon in my life, but nobody shunned me last year.
    At least I don't think they did... I was pretty drunk... ;)

    I am so excited for this. I went in for Jury Duty today and didn't get picked. Time to celebrate!

    Oh right, hopefully I will be too sloshed to care anyway, haha :) I was mostly joking about the shunning - PAX folks seem like some of the friendliest people ever. Met some very cool people in the ridiculous lines last year. And they weren't even drunk, as far as I know, so this should be awesome!

    !Pikachu, I choose you! I'll take group B as it seems a little undersubscribed. Give me a bit of an allowance, I'm not very good at meeting/talking to people I don't know but its something I hope to remedy on this trip(not just the crawl, PAX as a whole. Hope to see you all there!

    So, people keep asking me about the pokecrawl and I don't have that much info to give them except what I read on the first page. Can someone tell me more? How do you win a duel and how do you fill your score card?

    I highly recommend reading the info from last years (especially the spoilers for the challenges) - helps give you a vague idea of what you could expect.

    Quick question!

    Is it okay for me to sign up even though I'm a new member? I have been to PAX before, but could never participate in the bar crawl because I always go in on Friday. This time however, I made sure my flight was Thursday so I don't miss this.

    SIDE QUESTION: I have some friends going, may I sign them up as well or should I tell them to sign up for the Forums and post?

    Of course its okay. One of the biggest points of this crawl is to help people get to know each other.

    Your friends don't need to join the forums if they don't want to. Just do something like

    Team Whatever, Group A or B - againstclint +2 or +whatever number of friends will be joining you.

    I've gotten almost everything together to be the best nurse joy. :D

    anxiously waiting for the reveal of the bars, not to mention some maps.
    i drank at last years crawl so i'm pretty fuzzy on how i got bar to bar. lol
    i remember following blue pokemon. :P


    Is there going to be a special meeting before the crawl (during dinner perhaps?) to go over everything?
    just trying to get everything in order now that the countdown has really begun.

    Um.... Ok.. Soo.. Charmander.. I choose..... .. you? Group B obviously. Since A looks to be marked full. Really just picking random.

    My husband will be with me. However, he won't be drinking. Sulfide allergy. He said he would be willing to help herd. He's very good at that. Links up well with the PrePAX dinner, I should say.

    Just a note about the hats, As long as you order before March 1st you will get your hat by March 9th (Wednesday before the con)

    If you want to place a reserve for at con pick up you can do so by messaging me.

    We also have a few new designs including a slowpoke for those on the team.

    Several teams have been closed since the last update. Check here if you did not make it to your desired team.

    DariusTriplet, Menolly07: Both Team Red Group A & Group B have both closed. Let me know via PM which available team you would like to join and I will get you taken care of.

    Sausage: Team Yellow Group A has been closed and I bumped you to Team B.
    redfield85 wrote: »
    There aren't any differences between A and B, right?

    No difference other than their route. Groups A and B for each team will start an end at the same bar.
    Kidd wrote: »
    Has a meeting place been established yet? Just wondering if I missed this somewhere. I'm kinda new to all of this.

    The bar routes are still being finalized as we are having trouble dealing with some of the bars thinking that they don't need our business. Rest assured they will be posted in advance of the crawl and everyone will know where to meet up with their team.

    Arkimides wrote: »
    What if we arent going to get into town and available to get to one of the bars till 10pm, can we still participate?

    While I won't outright say no to this, as of right now we are dangerously close to being completely full up and you would be missing half the crawl since we need to start rather early. You are welcome to join us but at that point we will probably be out of scorecards and buttons.

    While there is some room left you need to act fast as we are filling up quickly well in advance of the actual event date.

    1. Show up at your team's starting bar
    2. Donate $1 to Child's Play to receive scorecard and team button
    3. Drink
    4. Drink
    5. Drink
    6. ????
    7. ?????? (Really, what the hell happened?)
    8. Profit for children

    Also a few important announcements that I did not want to get lost in the shuffle:

    If you have previously offered to be a sober assistant: As we approach the event these spots still remain open. If you want to volunteer for these positions please PM me ASAP with your preferred team and I will get you placed. Don't think you'll know what to do? Have you ever herded cats? Well this is just like that except the cats are drunk. Also I will send out a outline of what you'll be doing to help out during the evening.

    Team Red Groups A & B and Team Yellow Group A are permanently closed: And will remain so unless someone drops out. Other teams are also coming close to being closed so if you want to signup now is the time. We currently have 359 people signed up. The hard cap is 400.

    Bar routes are nearly completed: These have proven to be extremely problematic due to the fact that we are trying to give everyone the best experience possible but some of the bars just aren't having any of it. Do not fret, everyone will know where to start at the beginning of the night.

    Buttons and scorecards are go!: They have been ordered and should arrive next week. Want a taste?
    HereAreTheFinalButtonsLove-1.png

    See everyone in 2 weeks!
