    Sounds like a ton of fun! I could probably talk my group into going before/after Fire & Ice that night.

    I would also like something slanted a little more towards a gathering than a full-on party. I do think good food, drink, and games could be combined to find a happy medium between the two. If it's somewhere with other diversions such as pool, bowling, etc., then there would just be more fun stuff to do. Mostly, I'm just not interested in anything that combines obnoxious, loud music and drunken idiots in any form.

    I will have a 13 year old with me, so I am interested in the lower key event as well. Good food, company and yes drink (but not drunk). Games in whatever form would be welcome. Company most important !!!

    I know there's usually a bunch of people chilling in the Westin PAX Sunday night every year playing games, trading pins, being responsible with their drinking. If you want something low key, there's that.

    As for an after party, there's been various ones throughout Boston for the last 2 years.

    That's great. Now we're at least thinking about trying to do something a little more organized that incorporates some of all of that. :-)

    At least in my experience, drinking responsibly (maybe even mildly irresponsibly) doesn't have to mean low-key. There are ways to have a good time without having to get wasted. Besides, most people would be traveling on Monday, so hangovers would seem to be a rather poor idea.

    If there is underage involved then wouldn't there be a time limit on how long they can be out?

    Ok so it sounds like there's def some interest. Now to get an approximation of volume.
    I'll post a survey here later tonight.

    I know it won't be anywhere near as exact but at least we'll know if there's 3 thousand of y'all or maybe less.
    Survey will also ask about the type of event you'd be looking for, alcohol, cover charge, etc..

    ed: ugh, survey will have to go up tomorrow. gotta hit the hay right now

    Only place i know that has all 3 its D&B in Braintree

    Get some cookies, so you can eat 'em and grow up big and strong and kick Piston in the butt-butt.
  • SchmulkiSchmulki Registered User regular
    A MUCH better version of D&B used to be Jillians, but that's across town. I say used to be, since we used to love going there in college. The bottom floor is a dance floor which we avoided like the plague, the second floor was a giant arcade (this is the part which looks like might have been at least partially taken over by bowling), and the top floor was pool tables and things like that. It was great stuff all around.

    Me and my homies will be in town until Monday as well, so this sounds like a great start to a plan for Sunday night!

  • TripleozeroTripleozero Registered User regular
    Hmm. Playing Resistance or Cards Against Humanity with random people recooping from PAX while watching Game of Thrones (since it will be Sunday night and all). Sounds like a plan.

    Picking up Redshirts to bring along ... looks like a fun twist on the whole Star Trek red shirt crew member thing ... object - kill off your all red shirts first ... it is deck based game but should be good for a few laughs.

    The survey's been out for a few weeks. Only have a few responses so far, so maybe it's a matter of bumping the thread, as well as the big drive of forum activity not picking up real momentum until closer to the event.


    So, will leave this out for the time being and will post some preliminary results in a week or so.

    Yeah, there's a huge holiday lull in the pax east forums from mid november until mid january. I wouldn't expect lots of activity.

    If this comes to be, I can provide a large sized projection screen and high lumens projector at no cost for the event.

    Jillians is now 2nd floor pool tables and 3rd floor bowling, no video games that I saw at last years Turbine Party hosted there.

    Looks like we've had a couple more survey answers in the new year.

    Soon.

    Well, that's just sad. Used to love that second floor arcade :(

  • MordegaldMordegald Registered User regular
    I'm down. Drinks and games with some PAX people sounds like a good time to me.

  • MMMigMMMig Registered User regular
    We had 46 answers back in December.

    Now we're up to 72!


    Hmmmmm.... the next step would be to start seeing who might be able to help put something together...

    I'm working on a massive, massive Sunday evening boardgame night at the Westin - much like the Thursday evening one. Nothing is definitive yet, but we should know in the next few weeks if it will be happening.

    Happily on Sabbatical. Don't bug me.

    So long as it's all ages, I think I could convince my sprog to go. We're local so we'll be around. This is our second PAX and since we were boxed out on attending two days this year due to the ridiculously fast sell out, we're looking to cram as much fun as possible into Sunday.

    If it's anything like the Thursday pre-pax one they're putting together, you can see all the deets here. It sounds uber baller mode extreme 9,000

    hello world!

    Last year, we ended up going to the Frontalot/Protomen concert Sunday night. I'd probably go again, if they plan something similar, but I think a comfortable gathering like this would be better to decompress for the long ride home Monday morning! If it's a copy of the Thursday board games, even better!

    Awesome! To me, this is the perfect after-party. I will definitely be there! And I will probably have purchased a few new games to play!

  • LexiconGrrlLexiconGrrl Registered User regular
    So the Sunday Boardgame event is a go. It's a good all-ages event to take your spawn to. Expect it to be bigger than the Thursday event.

    However, if you're looking for a "proper" party with dancing and music and schtups, boardgames are prolly not going to scratch that itch.

    Happily on Sabbatical. Don't bug me.
