I'll also be going solo, if anyone wants to hang out. I'll be volunteering with Cool Mini or Not, and in my free time, I'll probably be in the tabletop or League of Legends sections.

After the Omegathon I'll probably try to grab a table in the Westin mezzanine (if the hotel allows it) and play some tabletop games I've been lugging around. If anyone's into that.
But, there are some awesome perks to going solo:
-The year I went solo I got through many AAA lines very quickly--because the groups ahead of you don't always make perfect numbers they usually ask if there is a solo in line, make sure and jump at that Seriously, that was the only year at Prime that I saw everything I wanted to.
-As mentioned by several others, go where you want, when you want.
-I meet a lot more cool people this way. When I'm with my group we meet people on occasion, but we don't really group up.
Any Ingress players - will go UPC/UPV/Mission Mosaic hunting after the convention hours.
I'll see you at the tabletop area bud. I'll be heading over to the harpoon brewery at some point during the weekend. If anyone wants to meet up over there let me know.
This year, I'm flying up on Wednesday again, on purpose, and have tickets for all three days. I'm signed up for some of the same events I went to last year because they were so much fun, and I came on here tonight to look for community related stuff to fill in the gaps. I don't have any plans for most of Thursday during the day, so I was hoping there would be a good romp all over town again (and it looks like there is - spread over two days, even!).
Extra Life 2015: Help me 1-UP last year! My 2015 Page
I'm open for whatever and play ingress so will be hunting down some UPCs and UPVs
I land Wednesday evening and will be staying somewhere near the airport
Keen to meet some cool people and make some new friends and visit some bars and have some drinks
I usually attend a bunch of panels, especially the sort that are more about the state of the industry, bigger concepts, and that sort of thing. Ex: I've loved the State of Game Reviewing and Romance in Games panels in previous years. I'm also a fan of Mass Effect and have in previous years spent a lot of time at the Bioware Base (RIP).
Otherwise, I try to get out to breakfast at Trident at least once, and a good dinner somewhere, along with a party or some bars. I've spent a lot of time in Boston and miss it, so I try to get out a bit while I'm here. Staying at the Westin this time around, so that should be nicer than my arrangements in the past.
I met some cool people off this thread last year and I'm hoping to again. Waiting on panel lines, the nightlife, etc are always more entertaining with other people, so drop me a note if it sounds like you've got similar plans for your PAX!
Will be doing PAX solo Friday only. I don't really have any plans yet. Gonna check out the floor, and I still need to make a schedule of pannels I want to see.
Here's the less than stellar part. I broke my ankle two weeks ago, and have a walking boot. I can certainly walk, and standing for long periods of time is ok too. So, if you're looking for someone to hang out with on Friday, and don't mind walking along at a painfully slow pace, I'm your man! (I will be attempting to get a medical badge on recommendation from some of the great people on this forum, so at least I have that!)
PS. I love beer.
I have already explored most everything, and am quite open to really doing whatever! My tastes vary vastly, so I'll definitely enjoy whatever you want to do!
18 Male, A cool Dude?
Trying to find something to do.
I am going to head down in a bit to try and grab a spot myself if they're still available. If you're around and not doing anything come over. Going to bring Exploding Kittens, Bad Medicine, Truths Too Terrible and Drunk Quest. I had more games upstairs though if anyone wants to borrow. I have Betrayal at the House on the Hill, Resistance, Dead of Winter and Pandemic.
