    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!!

    I'm pretty sure they're in the Faneuil Hall area - T-accessible (south st I think?) but you might have to get a cab back if its late.

    As many have already mentioned, Team Blue already has a fantasticle shirt. :)

    @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:

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

    I like the concept, and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

    Sorry no newsletter, and I tend to only Photoshop for drinking related events, an odd caveat I know but one that I have chosen to live by. ;)

    Team Snorlax! Would you like a shirt design?

    Here they are, on white (I humbly suggest this design for a white shirt), transparent, and a picture showing ideal placement. (Well ideal placement in my opinion)

    I'm pretty sure they're in the Faneuil Hall area - T-accessible (south st I think?) but you might have to get a cab back if its late.

    He is correct that the bars are going to be in the Faneuil Hall area, but the T information is incorrect. That area is best reached by the Government Center stop on the Green/Blue lines and State St. on the Orange line. If on the Red line, I would go to Park St. and take any Green line train one stop to Government Center to get there.

    Also, definitely agree on the last part. The trains stop running sometime between 12:30 and 1:30 (from my experience it depends on the night really), and bars close at 2am (mostly). So unless you leave the crawl around midnight to catch the T (since you might have to change lines somewhere down the way and aren't guaranteed to make a connection if you are on the "last" train), you are most likely going to be walking about a 30 minute walk to the convention center area if you are staying around there in temp probably around freezing, or split a cab ($5 a person if you get a few people heading the same way).

    I do not think, though, that The Pokecrawl is about collecting shirts; it is about getting so drunk that you do not remember how you turned your shirt inside out. (inside out right)

    This!

    Honestly, I don't think Team Yellow will have an abundance of shirts unless one of the people in the Team goes all out. I suspect that people will print the design on a transfer sheet or something. That's what I am going to do most likely.

    GalFriday, maybe not ALL about the shirts, but your designs have certainly helped. I know that I wasn't sure what I was going to wear with the Bulbusaur themed skirt I'm making. That shirt design will be perfect on a cream coloured T. I've got transfer papers left over from when I made a friend an Oregon Trail shirt.

    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?

    I don't have any concrete guides for the sober assistants other than to work closely with the Professors and Assistants to ensure everything goes smoothly. I think the two biggest responsibilities will be helping the group navigate from bar to bar as well as getting taxis for people at the end of the night.

    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, buzzkills, bad etc.).

    Dropped you to a +2 for now.

    Yeah the T is iffy hence why the Pokecrawl starts and "ends" earlier than usual so people do have the option to jump on the T if they choose to do so.

    Challenge 5: Clone Battle vs

    As your journey comes to a close Mewtwo reveals his final trick: He has cloned your Pokemon! You must now face off against them in a mirror match.

    Choose a partner that looks like you from your other team's group. One person buys the same shot or drink for the both of you then the other does the same. Keep drinking with your clone buddy until you realize what it truly means to be alive or whatever bullshit Mewtwo Strikes Back was trying to teach us.

    For example, Team Blue Group A's Keith sees that he looks very similar to Team Blue Group B's Kyle. He approaches him, shakes his hand, and declares his intent to kung fu clone battle him. Kyle accepts. Keith buys himself and Kyle a Scooby Snack. In return Kyle buys himself and Keith a Sex on the Beach. This continues until they both break down and cry, now knowing what it truly means to be alive. They may then stop. Really. Stop.

    The challenge clearly states that you must continue drinking, " until you realize what it truly means to be alive" so if trickery is the route you are taking... well now just what does that say about you? :shock:

    Better to drink until stumbling into a liquor induced Nirvana just to be sure you earn the button. :wink:
