    Just checking to make sure—this is legitimately sold out 2 hours after registration opened? I'm guessing yes. The hype is out of sight...

  • RappakRappak Registered User regular
    Yes it is. It sold out really quickly

    It was comparatively slow to sell out this year but never fear tickets will return to the pool as people get their registrations straighten out and cancel extra orders. I've seen a few duplicates in the orders that will be cancelled if they don't get figured out soon. So keep an eye out!

    It always does. Don't worry though - people who determine they don't need them will put them back up for grabs.

    TEAM RED R HYPE! This will be mine and my friends first time doing the East crawl, I did the south crawl this year and LOVED it

  • RappakRappak Registered User regular
    Don't forget about the Facebook groups! Team red will try another chat program i think since it worked well last year.

    What did they use last year? Was it something like Discord or Slack?

    Veteran of several of these, my Enforcer duties prevent me from joining this year, but my liver joins you in spirit!

    Group me. I haven't used discord or slack but I'm leaning towards one of those two this year.

    Hope some more tickets get released! Now that I'm in the city on Thursday it makes the Pokecrawl a much more attractive proposition...

    EDIT: ITS TIME TO CRAWL. Green B! Do I even own a green shirt?

    Are these two slots for those that want to volunteer or just general admission?

    The volunteer positions are separate from the tickets. The tickets are for non-volunteers who want to participate :)

  • VegaObscuraVegaObscura Registered User regular
    Officially on the prowl for some released tickets. Wasn't sure we would be able to do it, but things apparently change. I need my badge fix, after all.

    Boyfriend just decided he wants to go. Also prowling for tickets.

    I volunteered last year, but am in Omegathon this year and can't guarantee I'd be there for exactly 730 due to needing to meet PAX staff people for the Omegathon stuff beforehand D:

    Less than a week until we hit Boston! Starting bars are locked! Rest of the routes are in progress.

    Starting Bars:
    Red: Hong Kong
    Green: Black Rose
    Yellow: Hennessy's
    Blue: Clarke's

    Reminder, we are raising money for Child's Play and the competition is fierce. From PAX South's A Shot of Ice and Fire:

    Another PAX and another bar crawl is complete! I want to give a giant thanks to all of you guys who made this event such a huge success.

    We doubled last year's total and raised SEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS ($7,005, to be exact) for Child's Play! That is more than any crawl at any PAX ever has raised! ...

    That's almost 3 times more than the Pokecrawl raised last year.

    Hey guys, this year will be my first every pokecrawl and I was wondering if this was a thing where cosplay is encouraged? And if so exactly how crowded things get... I don't want to wear something bulky in really tight spaces.

  • zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
    It can get super crowded depending on the weather and the bars. Many people do cosplay, but I would stick to something that is not going to prove an issue in those tight spaces.

  • RappakRappak Registered User regular
    Cosplay is encouraged but keep in mind, you're drinking. People spill drinks. Keep it a simple cosplay that you don't mind getting dirty or wet. I can't tell you how many drinks get spilled on me as a professor. My lab coat gets kinda soaked.

    To RandomFools point that this is for charity, please donate if you can!

    Recent years the crawl has seemed to become an expected attraction, which has lead to many folks joining in that aren't very familiar with Penny-Arcade, Childs Play Charity and the like. Last year especially I found that asking for a small donation at check-in was met with "Why are you asking me for money, get lost I'm here to get drunk." (I believe last year might have been our smallest donation yet)

    Believe me the event is meant to be fun, but it helps to remember all the volunteers and work that goes into the event is to help the charity AND have a good time. They don't have to be mutually exclusive, tell a friend!

    Yeah, that's correct. Scheduling no repeats is basically an impossible task.

    Mobile ticket is preferred. It's easier to scan in a dark bar.

    The Pokécrawl raised $2617 for Child's Play this year! Congrats to Team Yellow who came in first with $846, officially ending years of Team Green domination. Thanks to everyone who donated, I hope you all had an amazing PAX and look forward to seeing you all next year!

    If you have suggestions for next year please let me know!
