I am super-excited to have the full three day pass this year. Just curious about what other people are hoping to see and do with the return of PAX Unplugged.
Personally, I want to try another Mega-game (and hopefully the sign-up process will be a little less chaotic than last year) and check out more play-testing.
The biggest thing I want to do is socialize more. Spend more time playing with people from the forums, talking with developers, and demoing and playing games I don't own.
Sign ups for anything was just a mess and the tournaments themselves need work as well.
For 2018, our plan is to just try and demo all the things we think look fun and rent as much as we can to try new games. I'm sure we will find a game or two to buy as well. I say I plan to stay away from tournies with how poorly they were run last year, but I bet I try to sign up for something anyway, hoping things are a bit more under control.
I hope there is some cool new tabletop Penny Arcade merch this year.

I would say that signs point to it being likely, but I certainly don't know for sure.
Will be doing videos of all you guys while there and some interviews with game designers. Hope to get in a few games and meet some of you!
Been thinking about this a lot and I hope there's some more room for pickup games, and a faster checkout process for the lending library. I hope to find some groups looking for additional players, or some games that people will want to jump in and play when I have them checked out.
Also, bringing my wife and kids on Sunday, so I hope there are some fun workshops, learning new games, and fun, simpler games to demo on the floor so they enjoy the time. Of course this means I need to cram that much more into my Friday and Saturday.
I'm very much looking forward to going again this year.
