    Who's interested in a table-top gaming meet up in Seattle? Probably a Saturday... meet during the day, and go as long as we want to. Since I don't live in Seattle, I'd likely get a hotel. The last time we did this, we met at the Sheraton, and gamed in the side Lobby/Bar area... Which worked out great because there was more than enough room, and people were able to get drinks.

    just wondering if any fellow pax people are going to the Legend of Zelda Symphony on March 26th?

    I don't have my tickets yet, but I will be there for sure.

    We are taking over a datacenter in sodo and doing a 200 person event :D

    Cost is $45 (large buildings in downtown aren't cheap :P)
    The event will be 48h (will go all nights!)
    We will be buying pizza for everyone on sat for dinner.

    We will have a seating chart and such up later.

    I'm definitely planning on attending this. Red, if you need/want any volunteers to help out with anything, let me know.

    It should probably be noted, concerning the big 200 Man LAN, that you can reg for the LAN now, and pay at a later date. The seats are still based on a first payed first served, but registering for it is a separate step.

    How do you pick a seat?

    Hey Matt,

    Since I've never technically been to one of these LANs, any chance I could snag a "n00b" seat?

    Man, I wish I had pushed my moving schedule up so I could make the LAN. As it is now I won't be moved in until the 16th of Feb. I'll be looking forward to the next one and the next Forum event.

    Sounds good... we've got most of the people from last time as well. The Facebook group and event page are here, http://www.facebook.com/events/203337226431373/, http://www.facebook.com/groups/187747611293547/. I posted the event page a bit late, but already got people before I made the event page, so its al good.

  • RedwingedblackbirdRedwingedblackbird Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    I'm probably bringing Battlestar Galactica, Zombies, Zombie Munchkin, and Chrononaughts.

  • LexiconGrrlLexiconGrrl Registered User regular
    We'll bring some games we've bought but not yet played: Ninja Burger, Elder Sign, Ticket to Ride

    Happily on Sabbatical. Don't bug me.

    We might not make it after all - Somebody at our house just found out that he got into the Diablo III Beta. We might not make it out of the house today. Pity, since it's one of the 3 sunny days we're alloted this spring.

    EmeraldCityLAN Update:

    We got the MS store to give us a bunch of software and they are doing a display of some gamer products in the LAN.

    LoL tourney is confirmed complete with shoutcasting

    Instead of pizza we are doing Jimmy Johns sandwiches

    Also we are giving away a copy of SWTOR:

    We'll do another one soon... hopefully before the Emerald City Comic Con.

  • BigRedBigRed Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    This will likely be buried again with all the East stuff happening but...

    Woohoo! Half the LAN is registered!

    Since I didn't see any thread for the upcoming Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, I decided to make one. This years event is suppose dto have a larger gaming element, probably something like what PAX and Sacura Con have with the multiple gaming rooms. However, the con closes much earlier than PAX... at 8PM, 7PM, and 5PM respectfully. So there will much more time after the con. While not the size of PAX, there will still be allot of people there over the 3 days, and it would be great if we could get some tabletop gaming going after the con closes. The con itself does not have forums that I could find, so I would encourage people, to post on this thread regarding meetups during the con. I have also created a Facebook event page for this... starting with our local gaming group, and is open for anyone to see and join.
    http://www.facebook.com/events/113637352098207/

    Even though hotels will not be totally sold out like during PAX, most of the group rate rooms are already booked. So I'm probably not the only person who would like to share a room, just to cut down the cost... 3 nights hotel in Seattle (over a weekend) is not cheap, lol. Autographs and photos with the media guests could run you a couple hundred alone, depending on how many you wanted. So if people want to start a room share thread, that would probably be great.

    Unfortunately I now have to cancel on EmeraldCityLAN. My travel budget fell apart when others could no longer make it, and I can't afford to drop $100 on short notice bus/train tickets at this time.

    :(
