    This was the most memorable part of my PAX last year. Was also my first PAX. Great conversation with a fun group, and this was the only thing I did that resulted in actual facebook friend additions. The game aspect added some variety to the night, and the pubs were excellent. Honestly, can't say enough good things about it. If you have a basic Lovecraft interest, and want to meet some genuinely great people, you should join!

    I will be a fucking shill for this event until the day I die.

    When Pax gets closer this thread stays pretty near the top so we have not pinned the last couple years. (Sorry it took so long to reply, I was on vacation for two weeks.)

    Is the listing really going to get that huge? I was expecting maybe half a dozen more parties at max, though this is my first PAX

    It's usually half a dozen or so per night, you can find last years list here -

    forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/177710/pax-prime-2013-parties/p1

    also you tend to find a lot of the vendor parties aren't listed until just before PAX (or even they get announced AT pax) so the full-ish list doesn't really get there until a few days beforehand

    *Laughs* well the problem with that is that I have nothing else to do but plan and plan. Admittedly it has let me find some really good deals on stuff. I'm usually a procrastinator, but I'm just so excited for my first PAX

    I completely get that; I was the exact same way during my first PAX. I still am even though this is my fourth one, actually. ;)

    Like others have said, more parties will appear on this thread as more get announced. :) Normally during the last two weeks or so before the convention starts, we'll be bombarded with information on the PAX parties. Also keep a look out for gaming websites announcing their parties (such as IGN or Kotaku), as well as game developer twitter accounts announcing a potential PAX party they might be hosting (if they have an upcoming game that they wanna show off, or just because.)

    I don't know if this list is going to be more specific to parties or if other events like concerts can be included, but I'm aware of a couple that are coming up so...

    Monday 9/1:
    MC Frontalot, Dr. Awkward (more unannounced guests)
    @ El Corazon- 109 Eastlake Ave. East Seattle, WA 98109
    $8 advance, $10 at the door
    Shows are generally all-ages, but the lounge half of the building is restricted to 21+

    Actually I guess that's all I have info for. I know of another show that is being planned for Friday night and a couple of the acts that will be there but I can't say anything until it's officially announced so... I'll post again when I hear.

    I treat my party list like my panels list:

    Pick one per day/night that you absolutely must go to. It'll make your life infinitely easier. In general for parties, there's one major industry party per night, apart from other invite only parties. It's usually smaller venues that will overlap with each other for time.

    This here's sage advice.

    Overplanning in general is a recipe for PAX frustration.

    Wise words. The year Double Fine and CAH had their after parties at the same was the year we tried two in one night. It worked out ok going to CAH second because it wasn't size restricted. Not advised for most parties though.

    If I remember right from last year it's 21+ event right?

    Yes, last year's Pink Party Prime was a 21+ event, due to alcohol being served.
    In addition: Neighbours Nightclub is also a 21+ venue.



    I wonder if Curse/Twitch are holding an invite only party again as opposed to general admission.

    Also, I'm a little disappointed that Mad Catz skipped out on PAX East entirely. Hopefully they return for PAX Prime this year.

    Yep, just confirming the Pink Party Prime is 21+ due to alcohol being served.

    GLBTQ-friendly PAX party with Jennifer Hale as the special guest? That sounds like my PAX dream scenario. I'm so excited! :#
