Hi Fellow PAXers,
I am in the early stages of organizing a meet up in Philadelphia before PAX. Before going to far with this I wanted to see what kind of interest there was out there. If you are interested please let me know. I think this will be kinda cool and a lot of fun. I look forward to hearing your responses.

Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462
Phone: 610-832-9200

    I don't quite live in Philly but I live in a suburb right outside of philly and I still consider myself a true Philadelphian. I would be all for a pre PAX meetup.

    I'm in Lancaster county and only an hour train ride away! I'd probably bring my friend and Pax east compadre with me. He lives in Reading.

    I pretty sure my boyfriend, PeasantDave would be interested since we're not too far from Philly. I would definitely be interested if I'm in the states at the time of the meetup. So glad PAX East falls during my spring break this year.

    I'm down. I live right outside of Philly.

    I would love to meet up with some people in Barcade.

  • ZeroHourHeroZeroHourHero Registered User regular
    I may be down depending on time/date/if I can find transport. I live up in Allentown, so its not that far.

  • MTSonic11MTSonic11 Registered User regular
    You guys are awesome for bringing up Barcade, just fyi. I had no idea there was a Barcade here. I knew about the one in Brooklyn, but not in Philly. I only recently moved back to the area, so I had no idea.

    On the main note, I'd totally be up for a pre-PAX meet up. My boyfriend (who posts occasionally here) would be dragged along as well. If it was at the Barcade, there is no doubt that I'd be there. I don't drink, but would totally buy some munchies/food to support such an awesome place and probably end up buying some drinks for others anyway.

    However, if I'm not mistaken, it's 21+ only, so it may exclude any younger folks that would want to meet up before PAX. Just throwing that out there, it doesn't effect us though.

  • dalaamprincedalaamprince Registered User regular
    Barcade is a great idea. I've only been there a handful of times but it's always been pleasant. It is 21+ though but it's an option.

    I live in the Poconos which is like 2hrs from Philly.. me and my friends and my bf could try meeting up..but..idk :( sounds fun though..

    You know why people have eyes in the front? Because they have to move forward to see the landscape in the distance. If you had eyes in back all you could see is your home town getting farther away; you can't move forward like that. If your eyes are in front what you see in the distance keeps getting closer. That's what lets people move forward.
  • ArighArigh Registered User regular
    I'm in Manayunk, but I haven't had a proper excuse to actually go to Barcade. A pre-PAX meeting? Now, that sounds like an awesome reason to get over to Barcade.

  • WingedillidanWingedillidan Registered User regular
    I'm in the Philly area, along with a few friends going to PAX, and we would love to go to a pre-PAX event. But we're in the under 21 demographic, so if it's a 21+ thing... then have fun :D

    I'm up in the Poconos, so it's like a 2 hour drive, but I could always drive to a Septa stop and train it in.

    ZeroHourHero, xHiddenMemories, we could all figure something out, I'm sure.

  • nataliepinataliepi Registered User regular
    I'm in Bethlehem which is the middle of no where. But I'd drive down to Philly for this, sounds like it would be fun.

    I work in retail. Your argument is invalid.

    I am intrigued. I have two other people going to PAX with me and I am sure they would love to meet up with people. I am from the North East/Mayfair area.

    So are we thinking a week day or weekend day for this?

  • nataliepinataliepi Registered User regular
    I think weekends would be better since (I think) most of us have to work during the week?

    I can only make weekends.

  • mgriff3456mgriff3456 Registered User regular
    Nice Media. That's only like 10 minutes from me. Also I can pretty much go anyday as long as I know at least a week in advance so I can take off of work.

  • JohnnyciscoJohnnycisco Registered User regular

    This sound amazing, I wouldnt think that there would be much PAXer's from the Philly area! I would definitely be down to hang out and get to know people from the area that are all about games! Unfortunately I am only 19, so any bars would be out of the question unless they dont scan ID's (shh) I live right in Philly and attend Drexel, ill definitely be looking for more information about this meet-up!

  • thr4sherthr4sher Registered User regular
    so nobody from our area is going to pax for the byoc besides me? thats disappointing.
