    Blizzard wasn't there last year? I specifically remember playing Overwatch a couple times.

    I've opted to divide up the events that are announced into either attendee run or developer run. I'll be updating the first post with the information.

    Thanks!

    Thanks so much for starting up this thread! I logged in to make sure someone had for 2016. :) I'm a bit frazzled, so I doubt I'd have the time to dedicate to this thread this year!

    I'm back!!! My favorite thread with regards to Paxeast!!! It's still early but I'll keep my ears open when it comes to Royale (and the other clubs in that location, they change the names on a monthly basis). I'm hoping that there's at least one major party at Royale. Last year's party was insane. I got to hang out with Cliffy B (like for real, we did shots together). You can't beat that. Good luck and remember to help out your fellow gamers.

    Play SPACE STATION at Boston Museum of Science's Charles Hayden Planetarium!

    On April 21st, the Museum of Science is letting me turn the Charles Hayden Planetarium into my own personal game table. Play "Parsely: Space Station" with full 360° graphics! Those of you who know/played Action Castle have a clue what they're in for. If you're in Boston the night before PAX East and looking for something to do, come on down!

    Thank you! I've updated with the Pig Roast and the gathering. We're just waiting on additional confirmation for the boardgame at this time.

    In Allston (part of Boston) is a place called Common Ground. Thursdays are 80s, Fridays are 90's, and Saturdays are 00's.

    If anyone likes the band The Spill Canvas, they just announced a tour and they'll be in Boston during Pax Weekend. They're playing at The Middle East.

    Not during PAX but Harmonix is doing an Amplitude Live Event at the Middle East on the 26th of this month. There will be live performances by Freezepop, Symbion Project, Kodomo, and Autoblaster. They'll have stations for you the play the game and the devs will be there too. Sounds like a PAX Party that just happens to not be during PAX. https://www.facebook.com/events/1133777296646488/

    I don't see any details about the event, but Harmonix is offering VIP access to their party as a reward ($250+) in their FIG campaign.
    As a Fig VIP backer, we welcome you to our party at PAX - in Boston, MA, April 22-24 - with full VIP treatment (special VIP area access, free food and beverages of choice), and an opportunity to meet key Harmonix and Rock Band team members! (Does not include admission to PAX itself.) https://www.fig.co/campaigns/rock-band-4-pc

    I just talk to the owner of Royale (the joint usually host 1 or 2 parties) and so far there's no word of any parties... yet. I'll keep everyone posted. If scheduling plays out the same way as last year then we know deals come together very quickly (just weeks before pax). That's all I got for now. Track me down during pax... Gamers gotta stick together and drink together! I just made that shit up.

    Hi! It was suggested I post here, if you aren't into parties, but still want to do something with a group, we'll be running a game of Johann Sebastian Joust at the Lawn on D (powered by Citizens Bank), right next to the convention center on Thursday evening. We've done this the past two years (in the Westin lobby) and it's a lot of fun. Here's hoping for good weather!

    Thursday, April 21st

    7:00 – 10:00 pm
    Johann Sebastian Joust
    Location: The Lawn On D Powered by Citizens Bank, 420 D Street, Boston
    Recommended for: All ages!
    Admission: $0.00

    Has anyone had any inkling of any other events that are being run? I know most may show up on Twitter but I rarely use it.

    I haven't heard anything but Eventbrite is another good site to check since a lot of the parties use them for ticketing. I think we'll start to hear more starting next week or the week after :)

    posted this originally in a wrong thread :? i'm pretty sure this counts as a party. Wargaming is holding a player gathering at Laugh Boston (right next to the Westin) on Saturday April 23 from 5-9 PM. Details and RSVP are here: http://worldofwarships.com/en/news/common/boston16-gathering/
