    I just want confirmation one way or the other: I'm guessing you guys are good on volunteers at prime?

    I volunteered at east, would love to volunteer again as a drinking volunteer.
    You might want to PM atlus directly for that. I haven't heard one way or the other.

    well, if you guys are just looking for a number, then bring $500. Give to childsplay whatever you have left at the end of the night.

    Apologies to anyone who has PMed me about the TWDT in the past week. Apparently my notifications weren't working so I had no idea. I'm going through and responding to everyone today.

    I don't think I would be bothering to ask for numbers if i had that much money to personally out-of-pocket spend on a charity in a single night.
    But nice zing :p

    You can treat it like a geeky bar crawl with interesting drinking challenges and be perfectly okay. But wearing something of your house colors really adds to it.

    I have only read half of the first book. I don't know shit about Harry Potter and I am the Head of House for the Slytherine Death Eaters. You'll have a ball. :D

    You can even use the house colors of wherever you end up to do a completely unrelated costume because yay costumes! I do recommend having something house colour related on you just because it makes it easier to get you pointed in the right direction if we spot you lost or with the wrong group.

    Not at all.

    It definitely helps to enjoy the lore and such a bit, but, the entire night is focused around bringing geeks together in an event focused around socializing and alcohol.

    They won't be quizzed on whether it's Leviosa or Levio-SA.

    Different houses may have different attitudes, though. I've only been in Gryffindor. For the most part, it's about relaxing and having a good time whilst wearing wizard robes.

    We should renew the HRAA. Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws go way back.

    For those trying to budget, some drinking maths!

    Last year, to complete your scorecard took somewhere between six and thirteen drinks, depending on what bonus challenges you were after, how many years you'd been at the crawl, etc. So, let's assume the average attendee will drink 8-13 drinks. (2-3 at the opening ceremonies, 3 during house challenges, 2-3 at the closing feast, plus potentially a couple bonuses).

    I think I usually spent about $5-10 per drink. You can spend more if you want, and there might be a few very specific challenges that could be more expensive, but that's a good average to start with. I'm going to raise that $5 to a $7, and add a bit to account for taxes, tips, and the price variations at different bars.

    That would mean that $60 is the least you could expect to spend if you intended to complete your scorecard, and that is probably kind of a low estimate. Bear in mind that you can choose not to do everything: I think you could have a great time on $35-40, if you were someone for whom a handful of drinks is plenty... less if you're the kind of person who likes to just have 2-3 drinks and then hang out.

    Or, let's assume you are DRINKING TO WIN, and that you're not buying well drinks anywhere - mid-to-top shelf for you! 13 drinks at $12 each would be $156. I don't think I've personally EVER paid more than $11 for a drink at the crawl, with the possible exception of two final secret challenge drinks my first year.

    So, how much money should you bring? $60-$160, depending on your tolerance and fanciness. I'm sure you could spend more, and there WILL be tempting charity stuff, so if you want to round it out to $200, just to be safe...

    These estimates are based on foggy recollections of four years of drinking. Someone with more detailed knowledge of seattle drink prices might be able to give better information/current pricing updates.

    I keep refreshing the eventbrite page, for I live in fear of missing registration and thus the crawl.

    This is healthy, right?

    I remember that.

    Honestly the reason I even ordered this thing is because @RedHalo's megaphone died last year. Having to do everything via sailor powered yelling meant I couldn't talk at all the next day. :(

    Don't forget the 12-1 AM stop for pizza. It's a necessity.

    Man, I'm taking a 7 AM EDT flight into Seattle Thursday morning, and then planning on doing this after going to the board game event.

    Maybe I should take a nap in between...

    Nap in the afternoon = Yes
    Food in the evening = Very Yes
    Water all the time = Yes Game+

    Water in between each stop should really be an official rule. Makes all the difference
