    @Goose! You should probably put the East dates in the title (Thu, Feb 27 – Sun, Mar 1)

    I know I've already seen a few people say they're probably not going to go due it being in February in Boston.

    Gonna be the first east I’ve missed in like 6 or 7 years :(

    I'll miss ya, and everyone else that can't make it. Last year was already a pretty tiny East as far as forumers go. Wonder if we're gonna bottom out this year.

    EDIT: I initially posted the hotel reservation queue instead of the badge queue because they tweeted it wrong at first. I corrected it, and here's the hotel link: https://queue.passkey.com/?c=lanyon&e=paxeast

    I keep thinking the kids are almost old enough to go. But then I realize I am too old to not have a close hotel room. Maybe I'll look earlier next year.

    If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing

    Yeah, I think I'm going to go through my original idea to make East an occasional thing. Last year was really fun but that's a long-ass flight out to Boston, and it's barely a month after South.

    I'll still be hitting up South and West.

    This is the first year in taking my daughter. She's super excited and a few of her friends are coming too.

    I changed my mind and have decided to go for one day this year, so I'll be around on Thursday but that's it

    Doing the whole weekend so soon after South would be impossible

    I will be there for the whole weekend, living off nothing but seafood.

    I'm usually hard to pin down to anything PAX East weekend cause I just let the winds take me for most of the weekend. A few scheduled events in the evening's with a bunch of my meatspace friends, but other than that I kinda just let the ADHD drag me around the expo hall all day.

    I'm going Friday, but with my daughter and some friends, so I won't have time outside off PAX. I'll probably be in the tabletop area by the afternoon.

    Daughter very excited. Asking me all sorts of questions, like, "what do the booths look like" and "why is tabletop all the way in back?"

    I'm like, we won't find out if you don't get any sleep! But it is fun to see her excitement over her first time.

    IF YOU WANNA DO A FORUM MEETUP WITH PHOTO THEN LISTEN UP:

    Day: Saturday
    Time: 5pm EST
    Place: The area behind Albatross
    Who: I will be wearing my old SE++ jersey with my original forum name (Rorus Raz) on it

    If you are a shutterbug, then PM me if you wanna take the photos. Otherwise we’ll be unleashing the photographic power of my iPhone. It’s a really nice one though!

    Glad to say I haven't seen any Ahegao gear. I really didn't want to have to explain that to my daughter.

    Damn straight! Hopefully, I can get there when the expo halls opens tomorrow to get my FFVII ticket. And a picture with Tom Nook.

    When I was at PAX South 3 years ago, there was a couple dressed in SS uniforms. Not the highlight of that one.

    Hey y'all.
    I heard there was an incident involving this dude in full Ghostbusters regalia at PAX East.
    I've had personal interactions with this guy and he is a complete shithead.
    tk1g4795iob0.jpg
    He goes by "Johnny Ruckus" and is part of the New Hampshire Ghostbusters. He's burned plenty of bridges before with his trollish behavior within the fan community but never anything this public.

    As a franchise leader I extend apologies to anyone who had to interact with him.
