WHO WE ARE:

The Cookie Brigade is a ragtag group of PAX Community members who have assembled since 2007 to provide our fellow gamers with delicious baked goods! Cookies are baked by the community, brought and shipped from afar by the community, and distributed by community.

The Cookie Brigade does not sell cookies. We give cookies away for free!

Brigadiers also accept donations to Child's Play, which are entirely voluntary and greatly appreciated!

And it's very convenient to get a cookie and give a donation at the same time.

Starting in 2007, the Cookie Brigade began a mission to give these cookies in exchange for donations to Child's Play, the charity started by Mike and Jerry that provides entertainment to kids in children's hospitals. Since starting on this mission, the Cookie Brigade has raised over $343,000 mostly by the handing out of cookies and the reception of donations from the incredible, amazing, and generous PAX attendees! So far this year we've already raised over $40,000 for Child's Play! Woooooot! Thank you everyone for your generous donations, you have helped an awesome cause!


WHERE CAN I FIND OUT MORE?


Looking to Volunteer? Head to http://cookiebrigade.org/ for more information!

You can also find us on the following social media locations,

Hashtag: #cookiebrigade


I WANT TO HELP IN THE BRIGADE!


If you're interested in
  • Baking delicious cookies
  • Distributing to people during PAX
  • Helping organize cookies and distributors

We can definitely use your help! Sign up at our website, http://cookiebrigade.org if you wish to participate in the organizing, baking, and/or distributing!

An important note: due to certain external pressures on the Brigade we have to keep some of our more sensitive planning operations private. If you sign up on the Cookie Brigade website you will have access to our public forums but will need to submit and application through the site to become a brigadier. Thank you for your understanding!


BASIC BRIGADE GUIDELINES

  • We give out cookies, we do not sell cookies! We do happily pass donations along to Child's Play, so feel free to give us donations if you want.
  • Keep it PG and family friendly. We love to give cookies out to kids and as such we ask all brigadiers to remain family friendly with their cookies (sorry no dickerdoodles) and distributing activities!
  • Have fun and enjoy PAX!

    This is a big year for Cookie Brigade! This West will mark 10 years for us! The traditional gift for a 10 year anniversary is tin, so we're making cookie tins. Each tin will have 12 cookies made by our talented bakers. We're taking preorders right now. You can order a tin and pick it up form us at West (or Unplugged or Aus) or you can have it shipped to you if you want the sweet Cookie Brigade experience delivered to your door.
    Order your tin on this page.
    Disclaimer: All funds collected from the tins will go to the Brigade's operating/internal costs, not Child's Play.

    Best place to check is usually tabletop, at least during East this year we had some brigadiers stationed there pretty much full time with a sign. You can also ask on twitter and if someone is available they'll send a brigadier over.

    Just to update Punzie's post, we're now only 12 tins away from meeting our initial goal of raising $1,300. Though we'd absolutely love to raise more. 8-)

    Give me time to get to the bank and put money in and I'll be buying mine. We can do more than one right?!

    Of course! Who needs just one tin of Cookie Brigade noms when you can have two, or 10...

    I've been going since 09 and JUST SAW THEM LAST YEAR, like some kind of magical unicorn (I was beginning to think CB was an elaborate prank the Internet was pulling on me). Unfortunately I had no cash and was deep in a Smash game. I ran out into the main freeplay hall when the game was over but they had already despawned :(

    I love the cookie brigade. I've hit them up at every PAX I've been to, usually a couple times. I haven't had to use the twitter to get them yet even.

    HAHAHAH it looks weird but im sure it tastes great.

  • ransimransim Registered User regular
    The overwhelming opinion from my coworkers is they taste amazing. Going to spend some time working on the design so they look a bit neater.

  • punziepunzie Cookie Pimp Registered User regular
    We made our goal for the tin preorders. Thanks everyone who ordered early! If you haven't bought one yet, never fear, you can still do so :)

    You'll have to find a brigadier in order to buy your pin, but we're making it easier than usual by having some preset meeting times. Blog post: https://www.cookiebrigade.org/wp/cookie-brigade-has-an-official-pin/

    At this time, we don't know if we'll have them for game night. It depends on when we physically get them in hands.

    We had a great pax! We raised $28,500 for Child's Play (they donated all that weekend's funds from the barcrawl, cookie brigade and their booth to Houston children's hospital and a flood relief shelter), we sold all but 8 of our pins, and we sold our entire available stock of tins that weren't preordered.
    Thanks everyone!
