*prizes might change.WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
Sometime during PAX you'll also need to pick up your party packet from me. I'll be hanging out in my hotel room (which is literally next door to PAX) for a few hours on Friday and Saturday night expressly for this purpose, and I'll make myself available on Twitter if you'd like to find me at the expo. The packet will contain your bracelet, raffle tickets, and maybe other stuff. You'll need this to get in, and I strongly encourage everyone to get it before the party. I don't want to spend half the night of the party handing them out.
You should also bring your appetite, any card games or whatever you think might be fun, and your "A" game for consoles and pool.
