    So it looks like quite a few people are arriving afternoon\evening on Thursday 4/10. Maybe our pre-PAX gathering should be 9pm ish? Late enough that most should have arrived by then and early enough people can get to sleep early if they so desire. I still think doing a second one later on in the weekend would be great as well.

    Also, I will be helping with setup all day and leading tours for new enforcers at 4pm and 8pm, so my suggestion is a bit selfish.

    That would interfere with the Pokecrawl, so I'd prefer it to be earlier... Regardless we could probably do a few meet ups each day, so whatever.

    I would think the later the better. I know people will be coming in from out of town.

    My plan so far is to use a corner of the Thursday night tabletop section, starting early and finishing late. I'll likely have a copy of Tsuro out since it is quick and simple for new people, and a few others such as Pandemic for longer games.

    The idea isn't to have something "Xpm to Ypm, attend the entire thing or you suck" but more "I'm going to be here, come along and say hi." I'll be at the entire thing, but that doesn't mean you have to be. I totally get that Jet Lag and other things are going to be happening, so this is more of a casual meet up. I'll be posting on the PinnyPal twitter account regularly to say where I am and where I'll be, so we can do impromptu flashmob Pin trades and give each other updates.

    Forewarning: Friday and Saturday nights are likely to involve alcohol. For those underage or disinclined I will have a pre-bar meetup, but the late night one is bar-bound.

    I guess we need a drunk Kemper picture to use for that meet up.

    Yay booze!

    I literally cannot think of anything more awesome than a booze-infused pinny pals meetup.

    Alas, I'll have to attend the pre-bar meetup, as I'm chaperoning my teenage brother. Another year, perhaps, I can join the Pinebriation.

    Pins! Pins everywhere!

    There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?

    I'm sure he'd be fine for a little while alone :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Also, what hotels did everyone get for PAX? I have Thursday night at the Seaport and Friday/Saturday nights at the Westin Waterfront... and I'm insanely grateful I scored these this year (though I'm still hunting for a Thursday Westin)

  • darkinferodarkinfero BOP-IT Malden, MARegistered User regular
    I'm at the seaport all weekend. I will bring my full set of cah

    I didn't get into the Westin this year, I had a problem with the group system. I think we are staying at the Residence Inn Boston Downtown/Seaport. I'm up for hanging out whenever.

    Looks like our first Pinny Arcade trading session will be at 3PM on Sunday (assuming the schedule doesn't change).

    YAY

  • BekerBeker Child's Play Program Director SeattleRegistered User, Penny Arcade Staff regular
    3pm Sunday? What is this from? I don't see anything Pinny related then, although maybe it changed already. I see one 5pm Saturday.

    I will be in line for the merch booth as soon as attendees are allowed into the building.

    Hopefully the convention center staff is more organized this year. Last year they let a makeshift line form around the sidewalk area, then opened one door, then about ten minutes later opened up all the doors before the line that had formed barely moved. They should take notes from Enforcers.

    I'll be staying at the Seaport only on Thursday night, so I might be able to, or you can hang with my friends and myself and get in line together (unless you have other people you're with).

    Are there any breakfast places inside of the Seaport?

  • darkinferodarkinfero BOP-IT Malden, MARegistered User regular
    Ya seaport you can eat breakfast and they have a 7-11 and dunks across the street.
    I plan to wait in line early. I need to get those pins for my pin pals.

    Breakfast meet up sounds good. We could all crash the Merch booth together afterwards, full of pancakes.

    I think we'll have to hit a place earlier than that if we want to hit the line, or just get something to go... I may need help nursing my Pokecrawl hangover though.

  • TheAggroCraigTheAggroCraig Ultimate Lucky Douchebag MassachusettsRegistered User regular
    Oh, and did everyone see the Club PA email? They want to do a meetup on Saturday night near room 261 (which I assume is 2nd Floor...) so it may be another awesome trading opportunity.

    "Pancakes".

  • ClixClix This guy I know Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    It sounds like we're all b-lining it to the merch booth on Friday. Other then a pin lanyard, anybody considered any way of identifying yourself as a community pin pal?

  • foehammerfoehammer procrastinator extraordinaire melbourneRegistered User regular
    how about a sticker of the kemper stamp on your badge

  • CowpuppyCowpuppy Squirrel Squad (EAST) Registered User regular
    I would definitely attend a breakfast meet-up.

    last year I just stopped at the dunkins down the street from the expo, the line is usually massive but I assume we'll all be getting there early so hopefully not too bad.

  • darkinferodarkinfero BOP-IT Malden, MARegistered User regular
    Updated OP.
    It will be a good idea to meet up around 7am. Get a nice Coffee and a bagel.
    Head out together so we can wait in line so we can get our Pax merch pins.

    You'll probably be waiting outside if you do that. The BCEC staff didn't allow attendees into the building until just a couple hours before the expo hall opened. Granted, the merch booth started sales shortly before the expo hall opened, but that was likely because the PA staff was ready early. But if you get in line that early you'll just be standing in line to go stand in another line.

    Oh I know. I figured the 3 hr wait will be worth it once I get the Aniv. Pin. :P.

    Plus I think I'll have a fellow collector waiting with me so it shouldn't be too bad. ^.^
