    Ok team Snorlax needs a colour.

    A color would take EFFORT. You really aren't getting into the spirit of this, are you?

    Ottawaans? Oh sweet, I just moved from there to Oakville. How you guys getting down? Maybe I can schedule the same plane or train or something, if you're looking for nerds to 'pool down with.

    We're driving, but hit us up, we're still in the planning stages!

    You are making me seriously consider going full lazy and joining Snorlax the more you post.

    Also snorlax would be rocking the color you see when you close your eyes and go to sleep, like a reddish black, duh

    So... I realize that it's probably somewhat a mystery, but... what is the MewTwo Challenge? or, if that can't be answered any clearer than "A challenge," might I ask, what was last year's Mew Challenge?

    NO! Cabsy, join Charmander Group A!

    Or hell. Team Snorchilaaax sounds so much cooler. Just don't block our route!

    We don't have to put any effort into it. It's just that everyone else has a colour and we don't.

    You're right, I am over-thinking this.

    Hey we should make a challenge around this. You encounter team Snorlax. You have to buy the team a round to encourage them to move.

    Meh.

    I haven't done one of these before so pardon the n00b question:

    Do the drinks in question have to be shots or can they be of the sippin' variety? As a man who drinks 5 pints for every 1 shot he takes, I'd be much more comfortable on my quest if I didn't have to pound every drink handed to me. That being said, I'm down for whatever; just wanted to clarify.

    This came up last year and it was kind of left in the hand of the individual Professor's for substitutions. Last year there were more shots to do than beers but I was letting people drink beers instead of shots or if they couldn't do the beer than a double shot.

    This year I want to do something similar but add in little challenges. Like answer a trivia question or do the snoopy dance.

    After having an awesome time last year on Team Squirtle, there's no way I could miss this (or switch teams). I choose you !Squirtle again...this time Team A (+2)

    Just a warning there's a Bruins game that night at 7 (the Faneuil Hall area is about a 15 minute walk from the Garden) and it is a week before St. Patrick's Day, not to mention a Thursday, so don't expect less crowds than last year! So learn from last year's mistakes..if you can't go to the next bar on the list, go back to the one with bowling and karaoke!

    I don't know what the MewTwo challenge will be, but here's a hint about last year's Mew challenge: Mew is the 151st Pokemon =D

    And if that number doesn't ring a bell, boy, you're in for a surprise.

    I seriously don't know how I got away with not drinking enough at the Triwizard. I am thinking of bringing snacks and water... which means, I'm tempted to wear a medic pack and bring snacks for everyone.

    Keyword: tempted. Reality: Lazy.

    Ooh. I've never joined a team before, so I'm pretty in the dark about actual expectations too. Mini-challenges sound entirely fitting and awesome. I'll be sure to have my lucky d20 on hand!

    i'm going to try to go in costume, but its going to be heavily modified. it is boston in march after all.

    sooo how does becoming nurse joy work? or are those positions still on hold for other people?
    cause if all else fails i can just join team snorlax if i need to.

    All set on the Nurse Joy position.

    !Charmander Group B

    Also... could you throw a + 9 (troubletown, stickman, oddball, halp, yellow, nack, bill, edquin, ryst) on that? ^_^

    Per my PM are you still down as PokeAsst?

    this is my first year at PAX, since I don't drink I would like to volunteer to be a DD for ant team. Just let me know.

    Please don't take this personally but due to the fact that the last few crawls have had issues with people who volunteered these positions are only open for people that I know from previous events. However if it gets to a point where we need more help I will keep you in mind. Thank you for your enthusiasm!

    With the last TWDT I created challenges that were a bit more open to interpretation. While there will still be a certain to adhere to for the challenge you will more than likely have your choice as to the type of drink you consume.

    YES! *starts working on costume*

    and i was thinking about bringing the equivalent of a med pack in case anyone is in sudden need of care.
    like water. nausea meds. hand sanitizer. excedrin (and ibuprofin for you aspirin intolerant people).
    some napkins too. somehow they are always needed when out drinking.

    plus some snacks and stuff.

    THE MOST FORMIDABLE OPPONENT.

    It is rather telling that I don't recall seeing you on the Tri-Wiz... unless you count Fried Food meetup beforehand, in which case, I had absolutely no alcohol in me and was obviously warming up my Drunken Master technique.

    Be sure to be careful handing out ibuprofen if someone has reactions to aspirin. They are very chemically similar and many people react the same to them. My sister was in the ICU for a week after making that mistake :(

    Seriously, we ended up at that bar (Kings?) every night that weekend, I think. Had a great time. Got some great video too.

    Only problem was, it was two days before we realized it was only a block or so from the Hotel!

    Yep. Kings. We spent a lot of time there too.

    Bukowski was our favorite. Awesome food and a good beer selection. My Bukowski coaster is sitting on my desk right now.
