    Come check out the plethora of console and arcade gaming stations in the PINK PARTY GAYMING LOUNGE, enjoy a few geek-themed featured drinks, and dance your heart out to our amazing music from DJ Krot and DJ Nome Goldie. Don’t forget to get your cosplay ready for the OFFICIAL PINK PARTY COSPLAY CONTEST, hosted by queer comic Nick Sahoyah (8-Hit Gaming, Cool Mom), where you can win cash and prizes.

    A portion of the proceeds from Pink Party X will benefit Seattle’s Center for MultiCultural Health and Entre Hermanos.

    In addition to getting tickets for Pink Party X online, you can also get them directly from the venue (for a lower surcharge). Just swing by The Runaway from 4pm to 2am everyday.

    Have no worries. Events usually push-in the last two weeks before PAX. Sometimes, parties are only advertised when PAX is happening.

    To be fair, I think most company sponsored parties function this way (save the smaller meetups). Bioshock was a mess because they gave priority to cosplayers and had the intentions of divvying RSVPs vs walk-ins but it kind of fell a part.

    EDIT: Looks like the RSVP ticket is going to be required for that Predator party - https://www.gamesradar.com/the-predator-gaming-after-party-comes-to-pax-west-2018/

    "*Entrance will be granted on a first come, first served basis for those who show an electronic ticket provided after registration or flyer and US identification."


    Not sure if this constitutes as a hangout, but this looked fun:

    Interesting find. But "... or flyer and US identification" makes it sound as if the ticket won't matter, no?

    You might be right there. Never hurts to RSVP though.

    Trion Worlds checked our names on a list upon entry and warned people in line not to bother if they didn't RSVP. Lenovo Lounge at Hard Rock last year also required an RSVP. Granted there was still a line outside and I don't think they officially sold out, but they did scan our tickets.

    Fortnite @ PAX West 18

    This one falls into that gray area that I had to consider. I believe this event falls within PAX hours, runs consecutively all 4 days and is more of a PAX Event than a Party. Please correct me if I am wrong!

    Things I consider before posting a new potential party:
    - Anything put out by PAX itself I try to avoid. Concerts and usual PAX West venue locations are examples. There are always exceptions to this and any rule here.
    - Anything invite-only. There are a few parties out there that I have opted-out from listing due to this.
    - The Event must have an event page posted up so I can link to it. I do try to reach out with any event posted to see if they have an event site or can make one. An events page gives more of a feel of authenticity.
