    This will be my fifth PAX, all 5 have been solo. I usually find someone to hang out with for a least a few hours most days. Sometimes it would be nice to have a group to help keep track of time. I don't know how many times I have gotten distracted and lost track of time and miss panels and stuff I wanted to go to. Even solo it's still the best 3 days of the year, and it's an added bonus to be surrounded by people who don't ask me if my Claptrap tattoo is a Transformer!

    It would be great to meet any of you solo-ers out there. I'm staying at a hotel relatively close so perhaps we could organize a meet-up or something along those lines.

    soloist meetup would be a cool idea.

    I will be there along with myself. I live in Framingham which is 20 minutes outside of Boston. I know the area very well and have been going to Pax East since 2011. I am 36M.

    Also solo-ing. Had a couple of room shares fall through on me so far already so please look me up in the room share thread if you are looking to reduce costs.

    Solo-ing as well. If you want to room share, I have a space at the Seaport Hotel very close to the convention center. Look up my post on the room share thread.

    This year I will be soloing as I already bought my badges and friends are backing out. Arrangements fell apart and searching rooms. It should be interesting as it is my real first time doing it.

  • melzwaymelzway Registered User regular
    I'm in Wednesday. My son and I usually go on the mystery tour Thursday. It's run by another PAX goer. It's very fun. They usually start a post for voting on places to visit.

    Finally registered today just to respond to this thread. Gone to PAX East a few times and this is my first year going solo. Bought 4 tickets for Sunday and my 3 friends have all dropped out this year one-by-one. Now I got three extra tickets to get rid of (hopefully trade for sat/friday) and need to figure out how to do this alone.

    Anyway, I live in Quincy (6 miles away from PAX) and definitely down for some Fire & Ice (yum). If anyone is staying around Quincy/Braintree hotels and needs a ride or someone to ride the T with to the convention, let me know.

    PAX East 2016 here I come

    this year was intended to be solo or at least with a buddy (both over the age of majority) ... but my daughter and his son are joining us (both under the legal drinking age) so it will be a bit more sedate on the party front but pax and boston has plenty to do otherwise.

    PAX East 2016 .... gots my Passes [x] Hotel [x] Flights [x] Packed [..] .... ok we're all good !!!!!

    This will be my 6th PAX solo. It's a great experience. You can choose exactly what you want to do, or not do, and when to do it. You've got like-minded friends all around you in every line you stand in! I personally think that solo traveling is a whole different experience than with family/friends, and if you enjoy it for what it is, you'll absolutely love it.

    I agree. My son comes with me but he does his own thing so I'm always solo. I've yet to be bored. It does have its benefits.

    I'll be kicking around Thursday.

  • aBByNormaLaBByNormaL Registered User regular
    Would remind everyone that if the Magical Mystery Tour is on again that that is a good way to link up with like minded folks too!

    The tour is always fun. That's the only thing me and my son do together. I'm a definite for Thursday.

    Soloing for first time after going with a group the first 3 years, they bailed this year. Convention itself probably fine solo, Doing The after-party scene solo might be pretty lame though. Maybe im wrong.

  • ProRican17ProRican17 Registered User new member
    I'll be rolling solo this year. Looking for some people looking to have a blast. Also to keep the party going after PAX, Friday night. Anyone in?

  • RenegadeTKRenegadeTK Central MassachusettsRegistered User regular
    I'm heading to my hotel on Thursday (Embassy Suites Logan Airport). Pre, post, during, my dance card is wide open so if there is a place to be, name the time, the place, and any applicable secret passphrases and I am there.

    This will be my 3rd year solo and I always have a fabulous time. I even tried the party thing last year and had a surprisingly good time.

  • W3G_GlakeW3G_Glake Registered User new member
    So this will be my first year going. I'll most likely be soloing, unless any of my fellow online friends will be attending.

    I'm 21, and will most likely be spending a lot of my time demo'ing new titles, and participating in whatever video game tournaments/events they have going on. I'm pretty laid back, so if anyone wants to hang out or tag along just shoot me a PM and maybe we can plan to meetup at some point ^^

  • Guy1919Guy1919 Registered User new member
    This will be my first time to PAX East. I'll be travelling with a couple of friends but one person might back out. We're both flying from the southwest and looking for people to hang out with, have some drinks and hang out at PAX. We are both pretty laid back, in our late 20's and open to trying different stuff out at PAX and Boston.

  • RenegadeTKRenegadeTK Central MassachusettsRegistered User regular
    Badges have arrived and the days are slowly counting down...

  • SovereignvsSovereignvs Registered User regular
    As of right now, I'm going solo this year. But I'd prefer finding someone to hang out with. Maybe I could ask one of the thousands upon thousands of people I'll see over the weekend.

    Of course, I would need tickets first...and a place to stay. Gotta work on that.

  • RenegadeTKRenegadeTK Central MassachusettsRegistered User regular
    I just got my ticket to the Pre-PAX dinner, I figured everyone there will be pretty like-minded and if not...at least there's a bar...

  • corsevcorsev Registered User regular
    I will be attending pax this year solo looking to meet up with others im 23 and play more xbox one games. Send me a msg if you want to plan a meet up

  • MagnusantiMagnusanti Registered User regular
    Arg, my homies bailed on me, so I am going solo as well. I'll be using the local web going solo, like this, http://1000ways.org/0257-solo-at-pax/ see you there!

    Gamer dad to gamer kids. Kerbalnaut first, then BF4. Will give any indie title a go.
