    Count me in, I didn't know about this last year as it was my first PAX. Really want to get immersed in it all this year and meet some new people!

    I am flying in from perth so it'll be good to hang out with some rad cats on the day.

    Not wanting to divide the party, but the Games Laboratory (near intersection of Queen and on Little Lonsdale street) also usually runs a Pre-PAX boardgames night on Thursday as well.
    It has a bar downstairs, but I mainly mention it for the boardgames if you want to start Tabletop Free Playing at PAX early.
    As I don't drink this will be where I'm headed Thursday.

    Talking with other PAX people has to be the best thing about PAX, so I'd encourage everyone to go to one of these if they can.

    As a newb to Tabletop for the most part, this interests me, what level are the games that are played?

    So, the Magic players appear to take up most of the ground level, but then there'll likely be thursday pre-PAX games on the second level or at the bar beneath.

    Or alternatively, the games are whatever people want to play and that they have brought or that are in the store's library.
    So I'm pretty sure I played Codenames, that multiplayer Pictionary race game by the same designer and Heroes of Waterdeep there last year.

    ....also boardgames

  • vaderkillervaderkiller Registered User new member

    While we still have plenty of time before it happens, May I suggest we see of the interest of a pub crawl more like two years ago instead of a carbon copy of last year. We had a few people get bored at bartronica (which is fine).

    I'm not sure if I'm going to be here as Media or a standard pass - If it's the latter, I'm sure that'll mean I get to partake in drinkage far more! Looking forward to it.

  • QuestorQuestor Melbourne, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    Bartronica is fine, but the games are expensive.

  • SuperRoachSuperRoach BallaratRegistered User regular
    It is a bit on the pricey side for the drinks too. For people travelling in, it may seem a bit tame to go from Transport to there. We've picked spots along the river and browsed EB midway through venues in the past - and I thought it was kind of fun to take in the Melbourne atmosphere and vibe.

  • feralmasterferalmaster melbourneRegistered User regular
    More than happy to entertain the idea of a crawl, if anyone has bar suggestions, do feel free to leave them!

    What games usually get played? New to tabletop but very interested.

  • QuestorQuestor Melbourne, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    Anything and everything - though in the evening usually nothing much that's too long!

    Just a heads up, Bartronica has an event on at 5, dunno how long it will last, but chances are it'll be booked.

    I dunno if I'll make it this year, today was fun setting up 237 PCs in PAX :biggrin:

    Backup option is to go where the wind takes us, we can tweet on #paxbeer. There are plenty of options...

    Melbourne is a great place to get a drink, let me know how many you end up having and I'll let you know some of the better spots, some suggestions off the top of my head would be e55 and alchemists refuge (which has been mentioned)

  • feralmasterferalmaster melbourneRegistered User regular

    I'm on the way, running a bit late as I finished work at 6pm and the tram takes a while to get in.
