    I would love love love love to be put on the waitlist for Thursday, but I have a group of 4... I will keep my fingers crossed, as none of us have done this tour before and it sounds magical, but I know it's kind of a shot in the dark. <3 ^-^ Sign me up +3 just in case!! Thanks.

    Hey guys,

    I remember last year there was a thing where people who arrived early to Seattle conjoined for a tour of Valve's offices. I'm not sure if it's too late now to book with them, but I think it would be awesome to do something similar again this year, especially for those who haven't seen it yet!

    First and foremost we should do a headcount. Please post below if you're interested; include the days you're available.

    UPDATE: Thursday and Wednesday are currently capped. There will be a wait list available, but there's no guarantee for those who are signing up just now for those days. Sorry.

    The days available last year were the Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday before PAX. Thursday might be full already by a private group, as that was something that happened last year too. However, I'll shoot Valve an email to see what's open. For now, post your opinions and free days and I'll compile a list. Thanks!

    Update (6/5/14)


    LET ME KNOW IF I MISSED ANYONE OR MAKE ANY MISTAKES
    [/spoiler]


    What are the times for the days?

    The point is we need to know times to plan properly

    Per @Wulfenshtein‌ on the first page (and I remember this to be correct), They usually do tours Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 3:30 PM PST.


    This should answer your question. Please note that Wednesday and Thursday pre-Pax are filled.

    This sounds amazing, I'd be down for Tuesday with a plus 1, if there's slots open still!

    Well, I guess my bf and I can't really join in the Tour after all. Sorry about that. Please take me off the list.

    @Lazorz‌ - can you move me +2 to the Tuesday tour, rather than any day? Thanks!

    @Lazorz‌ I'm definitely interested. I'm presuming its open to all ages? I'm with my 15 yo...
    That would be 2 of us, and we'll take Tues if there's space, or waitlist on any of the days (whichever is shortest would be awesome).

    The international is over! Let us hope that @Lazorz‌ is able to get in touch with Valve and set up everything. I will be a sad panda if this falls through.

    Should more of us also see if we can try to contact Valve as well? Or do you think that would be overdoing it?

    Nothing wrong with one or two emails, but if everyone sent one, they would think of it as spamming I am sure. I don't think others contacting them would hurt anything as long as it's a coordinated thing. Just my two cents of course.

    Don't worry guys, I sent an email yesterday morning asking about tour booking again. However, I haven't received a response back yet. I believe they're still packing up and dealing with the aftermath of the International (seeing how big of an event it was this year), so a flood of emails won't necessarily help with the response time right now. I'll try again in a few days and keep you guys updated.

    If anyone else really wants to send them an email too, just be sure to mention it here. The last thing we're looking for is to spam them as BadNews65 mentioned.

    Anyway, thanks again guys. Let's hope this all goes well.

    @Lazorz I sent you a PM a while back. I wasn't sure if you got it. I figured it'd be easier for you than adding a reply here. Hindsight 20/20, probably not. Either way, thanks for organizing this and have fun to the people that get to go!

    Sorry to change this, original one but instead of a +1, would it be possible +2?

    Hey OP Lazorz,

    Just curious has anyone from Valve responded yet because I may know someone who works at the front desk at Valve as they deal with visitors all the time.

    Shoot me a PM if you're interested and I'll give their email address there.

    Hey Lazorz,

    I feel I might be a little late for sign-up but I would like to be on the waitlist for Thursday is at all possible.

    It would be me and a +1.

    Thanks!

    Hi Lazorz,
    If you could add me to either Wednesday or Thursday waitlist. I didnt know we could have signed up earlier and now may be too late. Either day is fine.
    It would just be me. Thanks!!

    Hey guys,

    I've been trying to send out a ton of emails to the front desk, their front desk workers, their Office Manager Joel (who was the one who originally told us to email them after the International)... but it seems like absolutely everything is getting ignored. I'm not sure if they decided to already fill the slots, but seeing how Valve is notoriously bad at communication with consumers, I guess I should've seen this coming.

    PAX is less than three weeks away now, but there's still time to try to grab a reservation. I know things are looking gloomy, and it really bugs me that my inability to get a response screws up a lot of people's pre-PAX plans. We do have time, though, even if it's not a lot.

    So if wants to try to email Valve to see if they can get a reply, the address is
    frontdesk@valvesoftware.com
    Ask them about tour availability, and please post if you get results.

    Thanks. Let's hope for the best.

    I've sent my email out. I've also mentioned the plethora of people that want to go, so if I hear anything back you will hear from me

    I saw the beer tour is going to be on wed and I'd like to go to that, but I'm currently on the waitlist. If I can get in on the beer tour, would it be possible to change my preference from Wed to Thurs? It's would be just me, no +1's.
