    Edit: False alarm, found it. Thanks!

    I haven't seen anything on it this year, but if I remember from a few years ago it was $3-$5 per day

    Is it cash only? I'm going to make a point to have cash on me for it, but in the event that I forget lol!

    Looks like not, the space it was in last year appears to be Tabletop Quiet Play. A shame, although I admit I rarely spent much time there.

    Pins? Pins!

    I don't think I've ever had a coat check that accepted card so I would assume cash
    Also keep in mind with card for anything during Pax, there are thousands of transactions happening at any given moment and terminals can go down. Cards can fail, cash can't

    I spent only a little time in there too, but checked it out for a bit while there was a lull. Maybe a couple hours each year. I just feel like the things I really enjoyed are slowly disappearing from East.

    The developer panels, the arcade machine room, Jamspace, the good giveaways. I still really enjoy the event, but for me it is phasing out.

    I make sure to bring my PAX money in the form of cash. It's the one way I can budget myself.

    Boy, this year’s app is pretty bad for making your own schedule. A single long list of “favorites” that has no filtering or formatting or tabs. How did the most important function of the app get so overlooked?

    The south version of the app had the same criticism. The Google Play store has a 2.9 rating for South version (East is at 1.9 right now).

    Not sure why they changed it up without any BETA testing. Should have run it alongside the Guidebook version for a few events to get the issues out. Or just continue to use Guidebook.

    It's the same app vendor ReedPOP uses for some of its other cons, so I think the idea was likely unification of vendors?

    Will there be any web version, like Guidebook so we can get hi-res maps and easier exhibitor lists?

    That would be great honestly. In the years past I print them out and my notes on them so that I don’t have to rely on any internet connection (or lack thereof).

    the app works even in airplane mode so as long as the app has downloaded all the relevant maps/events/etc you don't really need internet to use it

    It's admittedly a bit of a niche request from me as I like to research the booths and make a custom map, so I have a plan of attack for maximum efficiency. Some say I'm overthinking it. Others say I'm overthinking it. Whatever...it makes me happy! This year, I ended up pulling from the pdf of the program that they posted and did some Excel-Foo to rip out the vendor names and booth numbers.

    Example of my custom maps (name that year for bonus points!):

    Man, the schedule filtering (or lack thereof) and the missing add custom item to schedule is a major loss of usability compared to the old app. Also, I really miss the ability to set custom reminder times on things - meaning i would set a 15 minute reminder for something I know will not cap, but an hour on something that is guaranteed to cap. Definitely helped with time management.

    Is the app ever going to get an updated schedule? The Obsidian panel on Saturday still isn't there.

    The app is garbage, cant sort the giant schedual and zoom doesnt seem to work it just rotates the map, oh and the crashing.

    Sadly it looks like this is my last pax it sucked when the arcade left they did it for free and pax charged them to do it, they got rid of jam space, there arent any good concerts they have what one this year? Foods gotten worse every uear, you cant even get a beer anymore...

    Thanks! I've just grabbed what PA provides and color it in to make it easier to hit the floor quick so I can spend as much time in Tabletop as possible. I just finished this year's and it's by far the most barren I've ever seen. I think that has more to do with the fact that I've shifted so much attention to tabletop and will only be at the con for two days, but still. Yikes. I also left off all of the game shops since I always end up bumping into them anyway.
