    First things first:

    All teams are closed.

    While there are a few random spots here and there we do have some stragglers.

    I choose you !Squirtle Group B + 3 friends

    I had a blast at the tri wizard pub crawl some time ago so I am looking forward to this, thanks Atlus Parker

    I moved you into Team Green Group B since Team Blue closed.

    Attention! Team Yellow Group B! Currently you are a group consisting entirely of wild Pokemon as all leadership positions are open. Currently looking for volunteers to step up.

    Now as we get closer to the event I'm going to start revealing the challenges. For example:
    Challenge 3: Warmup Trainer Duel vs

    At the beginning of the bar crawl each trainer will be issued a Pokemon card along with their scorecard and button. For this challenge they must partner with a member of the opposing team whose card type matches theirs and take a shot or drink based on their card type.

    For example, Team Blue's Jimmy was given a Gastly card which is a psychic type. He then finds Team Yellow's Jonny whose card is Nidorina which is also a psychic type. They meetup, shake hands, and get fucked up on a shot or drink of Jaeger.

    Type List:
    Psychic (Purple): Jaeger
    Colorless (White): Wildcard!
    Lightning (Yellow): Tequila
    Fire (Red): Rum
    Fighting (Brown): Whiskey
    Grass (Green): Gin
    Water (Blue): Vodka

    Note: If a trainer loses his or her card they must drink a double shot of their professor's choice. Don't be bad.

    I will be posting the challenges ahead of time this year so there are no questions about what each one entails the day of the event.

    As Team Red will not be outdone by other, lesser teams we will also have several items available during the crawl.

    -We will tentatively have a Delibird on hand with his sack full of presents. Don't question it. He's a foreign exchange student...from the future. For a donation to Child's play you'll be able to reach deep into his sack and pull out a random Burger King Pokemon toy from 1999. You know, these badass toys.

    -We will also have shirts available with all proceeds going to Child's Play. They are perfect for going to the gym, a sporting event, or just going outside and getting exercise. We will have a good mix of sizes available. Take a look:

    So if you've picked Team Red you've made the right choice!

    @rentfn; Yes, your shirts are awesome! Adorable and yet condoning drunkedness; a duality unmatched by most other garments. :D

    A quick note on shirts; if someone from Team Yellow or Team Green or even Team Snorlax wants me to make a design similar to the one seen right here:
    ShowOffPokeShirt.png
    Then please respond in this thread or send me a PM. Team Red is having them professionally printed by VistaPrint, if you order in the next day or so they will reach you on time and if you get back to me quick like a bunny you can get the shirts for 50% off. (The VistaPrint sale goes on until then end of the day Sunday)

    Maybe you want something a little different; that's fine! I will attempt to use any skills of an artist that I have to whip up what you ask for. Be kind; no bedazzling or glitter, that's just bad.

    My turnaround time is pretty quick so just drop me a line. I'll provide the design, you order the shirts. Super easy!

    After I go drinking I usually like to enjoy something to eat before I go to bed. Anyone know places that will be open after the crawl? I'm guessing later than 2am. Something close preferably but I'm not opposed to a cab ride.

    Also, if this isn't the appropriate place to post this let me know.

    South Street Diner will be open. The good news: it's great. The bad news: it barely fits 30 people, and it's consistently packed at 3am from Thurs-Sun.

    I recommend looking up numbers for Domino's. Boston's not a good place to wait outside for a table.

    Ooooh, I'm totally buying a shirt.

    So, I scrolled the thread and may have missed it. What do we non drinkers do? Just don't take a scorecard and help wrangle the rest of the drunken herd?

    Oh, might be a good time to mention, there are some excellent Blood Alcohol Level calculator apps for iOS and Android. You input your weight and how often you drink, and then start a session and input your drinks as you have them. It'll tell you where your level should be over time. Helps you count your drinks and slow down if you're overdoing it. We've found them to be a nice hangover prevention measure.

    Hey all,

    Unfortunately, many of my +7 who were planning to join me have since changed their minds for various reasons (Arrival times, boyfriend/girlfriends not being of age, changing their mind about drinking before PAX, Peer pressure, etc.). The most relevant one being arrival times as several people aren't going to be in Boston until late Thursday night. Therefore, my + 7 is definitely getting reduced (potentially to just being me) Several of them want to join in, but seeing as they may not be arriving until 9-10, Idk if I should have them on the list.

    I will have a definite amount shortly. Sorry for this short notice.

    Thanks; to be fair the the Team Red shirt design was Atlus' idea.

    Hi there Team Yellow and Team Green Professors! :mrgreen:

    Rather than having three teams with a thematic shirt design I have made two entirely different designs for your respective teams. You may print them out on transfer paper, have them professionally printed, or skip it entirely, it is up to you. I hope that you like them. :)

    Team Yellow:
    TeamYellow2.png

    Team Green:
    TeamgreenShirt.png

    PS
    Right now they are on opaque white backgrounds because it is my assumption that you will be printing the designs onto white shirts, if you want a copy of the design with a transparent background just let me know, that is totally doable. :)

    You get to laugh at us all, take incriminating pictures, and torture us the next day by telling us we did things we don't remember doing (whether those things actually happened or not).

    Blue were the first ones to show shirt designs. I think there's a more recent post, but this one shows the design: http://forums.penny-arcade.com/showpost.php?p=18307381&postcount=354

    n00b question: I know bars haven't been announced yet, but are they going to be around the convention center, or in downtown/some other part of Boston that we need to take the T to get to? I'm trying to figure out what time I'd need to get bus tickets to Boston for, factoring in travel to and from the hotel to wherever we're meeting up.

    Huge apologies if this has been answered already but the search function is broken and flipping through didn't turn anything up. Thank you!!
