Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

PAX West 2017 Forum Badge

kropotkinkropotkin Forum Badge CreatorLondon UKRegistered User regular
That's right it's the thread some of you may have been waiting for, possibly. It's the thread where we design the forum badge that will be used during PAX West 2017. With the tickets now on sale, well they were until they all sold out, we can now plan ahead how us forum users will identify ourselves at PAX West 2017. Last year I foisted a single design onto everyone and we honed it into something we all wanted. This year we're going to go back to the 'choose the best theme' as we did for PAX East 2017. So here they are, the three choices on offer:

1) Legendary Collectable Card Game card from a mythical game we make up
2) NES Game box (we did something similar a few years back with Atari 2600 and it proved to be very popular)
3) Kickstarter board game - a fictional game based on attending PAX West 2017

Let me know which one grabs you the most by responding to this post with 1,2 or 3 and we shall put it to the vote on THURSDAY 6TH JULY At which point the top two will be selected and a prototype of each design developed. There will then be another round of voting and we shall select the final design. So what are you waiting for? Get voting!

    IIRC, the board game was done before, but I don't recall the collectible card game having been done, so my vote is for 1.

    And, as tradition, I support this endeavor. :)

    I love those retro game covers myself, so I'll go with 2

  • AlphonsisAlphonsis Registered User regular
    My vote is for #2, because all my NES games were lost in a fire and I would love to have a forum badge in the same style.

    Given that I had a Famicom, I'm not nostalgic about the NES at all. I do like #1 though.

    This is a forum members thing where Kropotkin makes a badge for us, with all of our names on the back. The front has a place for you to write your name or handle in sharpie, and there's a badge holder provided as well. It's a fun extra piece of PAX life.

    Aww, no love for #3? Well, it gets my vote.

    Also, yay for this. I can't wait to add this year's badge to my collection.

    #2 for me. Retro or bust

  • kropotkinkropotkin Forum Badge Creator London UKRegistered User regular
    Thanks for the positive responses everyone. Just to clarify the board game option, last time it was a parody of a Euro game. This time around it will be a ridiculously complex game that you sometimes find on Kickstarter.

    I love #1.

    Especially given that MTG always seems to have such an awesome presence at Pr...West. I look forward to seeing what they do every year, though I don't play xD
