    Hi. I go alone every year. Lots of fun to be had. Lots of cool people to meet.

    Support the Cookie Brigade!

  • rascrushrascrush Registered User regular
    i am going for the 2nd year alone would love to meet up with someone for a party or something like that

  • DolarrahDolarrah New JerseyRegistered User regular
    Ras, we never did meet up last year, I am only going on Saturday since I am going to South this year, but if your around Friday Night or Saturday during day, would be awesome to meet up.

  • rascrushrascrush Registered User regular
    ya man hit me up with your number i am sure I will be around do u plan on going to any parties friday night?

  • flasheflashe Craft Beer Aficionado US - East CoastRegistered User regular
    If you arrive a few days early, for what ever reason, punzie typically starts a MMT thread each PAX for Wed and Thurs. It a good way to see the city and meet up w/ fellow PAXers. This is what I did for PAX Aus and I had a blast w/ Jazzy and Squire_Pug showing us around town.

    You can also do the pokecrawl (participate or volunteer to help) in which case you'll likely to run into someone who knows where the parties will be Friday/Sat.

    Unfortunately both of these requires getting to Boston a day before the start of PAX East.

    I was debating what to do on thursday since I plan on going to boston on that day.

  • darksteelreaprdarksteelreapr Registered User regular
    I'm going to be going solo as well and I'll be in Boston early on Thursday. Hopefully I can get my early check in request and do some sight seeing

    Solo here as well. Did make a few friends from the dinner last year but it was a bit expensive for what was available for the selection so this year i plan on doing the bar crawl if i can make it.

    Get some cookies, so you can eat 'em and grow up big and strong and kick Piston in the butt-butt.

    I'm going by myself as well. Still debating if I want to split cost of my room at the Seaport with someone or have it to myself. 800 vs 400 or less is a mighty consideration.

  • xpphantomxxpphantomx Registered User regular
    I went solo last year which was my first time. And I had a great time

  • upstateny-danupstateny-dan Registered User regular
    I'll be around saturday solo and to any parties fri or sat, would be great to meet some cool people.

  • BigaceBigace Registered User new member

    Magical Mystery tour might be an option, depending on timing.

    Hello friends!

    I usually go with a group of friends, but last year mostly set out solo. This year I'll likely be doing the same (friends were vastly more interested in the outside of PAX parties and such, which is cool and all, but the actual event at the con is way better =D).

    I'm always happy to have some company or meet new people, as I consider myself friendly/polite, but I am terrible at just striking up conversations with random people! I love League of Legends, Marvel Heroes, and Hearthstone, and will gladly BS about any of those topics for hours =D

  • SoulairSoulair Registered User regular
    Going on Sunday alone not sure if im gonna cosplay

  • scottyb1218scottyb1218 BostonRegistered User regular
    Looks like I'll be soloing it this year for the first time. Would love to meet up!

  • ZombiethebobZombiethebob Registered User new member
    First time going. I, too, shall be going alone. Only on Friday, though. Because PAX was lame and didn't announce when tickets would be sold efficiently.

  • flasheflashe Craft Beer Aficionado US - East CoastRegistered User regular
    PAX is one of the few places where going solo isn't so bad. As meeting ppl and making friend is pretty easy, just say Hi!

  • grayfawkesgrayfawkes Registered User regular
    This will be my fourth PAX going Solo, as always. Love it everytime.

    Going with my son, but he's not interested in anything I am, so I might as well be alone. If you want to game, RPG, board, whatever shoot me a note.

  • miyomiyo Registered User regular
    I am alone and am going to be in Boston before noon due to flight. If I can drop off stuff at my hotel, I might wander over to the aquarium since it's only a few blocks away. Fishes rule.

  • MarsCheliosMarsChelios Registered User regular
    If you're looking for another way to meet people, you should check out the Assassins Ball community game I run! There will be meetups every day and it'll give you a reason to chat up other players you might not have talked to otherwise!

  • millerm277millerm277 Registered User regular
    I'll also be going solo, 4th time attending East. Staying out in Riverside although I don't expect to be there much beyond to sleep.

    I usually attend a lot of panels, especially the broader more genre/industry focused ones. (Ex: Roguelikes panel, Effects of DLC panel, etc). Also fond of seafood and don't mind taking time out from the show for going into the city to visit to some of the good restaurants, and I know the city well. So if anyone is looking for someone to go out to eat with, message me.

  • melzwaymelzway Registered User regular
    I'll be "solo" as well. My son is traveling with me but once we get to the expo he prefers to do his own thing. This will be my third year "alone" but I always have fun and meet a few folks.

  • GeekyPanda404GeekyPanda404 The Geeky Panda ConnecticutRegistered User regular
    Rolling Solo myself since my group of friends who planned to go didn't got a badge in time. Not too bad since I will be going around the convention center recording Cosplays for a Cosplay Music Video and my Youtube Channel. I am willing to meet up with other people though.

  • littlelion2klittlelion2k New YorkRegistered User regular
    I'm a solo attendee! First time at PAX, and in fact, first time at any kind of convention. I'm a bit intimidated, but it sounds like it'll be a great way to meet people and make some new friends!

    I'm coming for the full weekend, but I'm also interested in doing some sightseeing in Boston- are there some sightseeing groups?

  • marmaduketwistmarmaduketwist London, UKRegistered User regular
    There's the PAX Magical Mystery Tour which is organised for Wednesday and Thursday before PAX.

  • littlelion2klittlelion2k New YorkRegistered User regular
    Oh wow, that looks amazing! I may have to consider coming in early.

  • BeastybunnyBeastybunny San FranciscoRegistered User regular
    I am coming solo as well. I'm in Boston for 8 days to do sight seeing. I love Boston. Just hope it is a little less snowy by the time I arrive. :P

  • SneetherSneether Registered User regular
    A Local of Massachusetts here going for Sunday Only

  • GHOST.OneGHOST.One Registered User regular
    Going alone this year as well, finally won't argue with people in what line should we wait.

  • koreofmythkoreofmyth Registered User new member
    I'm a local - first time at Pax and also going by myself! I'll be there for all three days and am up for meeting up prior/during etc!

  • dominion500dominion500 Registered User new member
    Going alone! I'm only going to be there on Sunday, but I'll be swag-crawling. PM me for a phone number!

  • melzwaymelzway Registered User regular
    I love the Mystery Tour. It's a great way to be a tourist and possibly meet new friends. I'll be touring with my son but we usually part ways once PAX starts and I'm on my own.

    Got my badges today! I'm solo again this time also went in 2013. I am arriving on Tuesday and plan to do the tourist thing. I will also try to do some if not all the MMT one or both days depending on the stops they settle on.

  • ElzemereElzemere BostonRegistered User regular
    Another solo local going on Friday and Sunday. Also looking to get in on the Pre-Pax Dinner on Thurs.

  • yolomcswaggytotsyolomcswaggytots Registered User regular
    I'm heading solo, but only attending Friday and Sunday. I'm a local of boston, born and raised. I'm 14 tho so keep that

  • marmaduketwistmarmaduketwist London, UKRegistered User regular
    This is my third PAX East solo. My friends fail to see the brilliance of PAX, so would never travel over from Europe. That actually doesn't matter, as I always meet up with a fantastic group of people at the various pre-PAX events.

  • Mysterious Nut BreadMysterious Nut Bread Brookline, MARegistered User regular
    My third solo PAX , though now I live in the area. I have a badge only for Friday and would enjoy meeting new people at PAX on that day and also outside the Convention.
