PAX East 2014 Parties

We… Like… To… Party. We all do, really. PAX East is one of the best places to do so, too. It’s relaxing, it’s a great group of people, and it’s smack dab in the middle of one of our favorite cities, Boston.

With the expo just two short months away, April 11-13, the parties are officially being announced! That means that, as usual, we’re here to post them! We know you want the info, so we’re going to give you our biggest, most awesome guide yet!

Keep checking back here and we’ll update this guide with all the goodness!

Pokecrawl PAX East Party

5th annual Pokecrawl – Episode 5: The Spell of the Unown!

[SOLD OUT]

Time: 7:15pm – 2am
Location: Faneuil Hall area

[THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT]

Please respect the limit that we’ve placed on the maximum number of people per team and do not try to attend if you are unregistered.

This is an extremely popular event, and if you don’t manage to snag a registered spot, we’ll miss you! There are a lot of other events that night: bar crawls, game nights, dinners, and parties. It puts great strain on the system we have set up when extra people are on the teams and in the bars.

You may remember us from the other PrePAX bar crawl, The Triwizard Drinking Tournament. Or if this is your first PAX, maybe not. In any case, the Pokecrawl is a barcrawl/scavenger hunt that’s Pokemon themed. The goal is to get as drunk as possible while participating in drinking games designed to get you there. Oh yeah, it’s also a great way to meet fellow PAXers and make friends before the convention itself. As always, attendees will be encouraged to come dressed as characters from the Pokemon universe.

This event will be held in Faneuil Hall bars and the closely surrounding areas. All bars will be walking distance to each other. We come as a group, and leave as a group, so don’t try to get left behind!

Registration is free, but we will be collecting donations for our chosen charity, Child’s Play, when you check in. We are asking for at least $1 to cover any buttons you receive/win and your scorecard. We’d love for you to give more, after all, it is for a good cause. Most teams will also be selling various merchandise, food, or other auctioning off other swag to hep raise money.

Please respect the limit that we’ve placed on the maximum number of people per team and do not try to attend if you are unregistered. You will need a ticket either printed out or on your phone to participate in the crawl.

Our formal announcement will come in Janauary, after MAG Fest so stay stuned for that.

What’s this charging for tickets? You guys sold out!!! Don’t worry, we still have the free tickets, but  parties aren’t cheap. For $10 you get an official Drunken Indie pass. It includes one game code, some food to snack on, and some other survival items for the convention. Above all, paying the $10 guarenteees entrance into the party and gets you into the drawing for our grand prize! We have unlimted free tickets, but the Drunken Indie passes are limited, so buy them now while they still last! Above all these tickets help us cover the cost to make Indies Need Booze possible! With the eventbrite fee each ticket comes out to $11.54, but you know you’ll spend that much on a hot dog and soda at the convention center.

There are unlimited free tickets, but there is no guarentee you will make it into the party this year. It’s first come first serve and you don’t get an awesome survival kit in a cool ass paper bag. Paper Bag!!!  You also need to buy a pass for a chance to win the grand prize.

We got a lot of last second “Can I get ins” last year, so heres the rules for this coming year. Drunken Indie Passes close a week before our party so on April 4th no more will be sold. We will be giving away a few Drunken Indies Passes this year,  but just remember that you might not get in if you don’t plan ahead. You get into the party for free if your game is showing at PAX East or you are showing a panel. If you are press, you either have to apply for a free pass or buy a Drunken Indie Pass. The other way to get guarenteed entrance is to become a volunteer. We need people to help set up tables, attend to the indies showing at the party, and finally checking in our guests. Shifts run for each hour and we will need more to start and more to end with. If you want to volunteer email us at gaminginpublic@yahoo.com with Volunteer as the subject line.

EVE Online PAX East Fan Meetup

Time: 8PM-Midnight
Location: JJ Foley’s, 117 E Berkeley St, Boston, MA
Information: EVE Online Forum
Entry: 21+, First-come-first-served

What if I don’t have tickets to PAX East?
No problem, you don’t need PAX tickets to come.

Open bar?
CCP is not sponsoring a PAX East event this year because it falls so close to FanFest. Since I’m not rich, sorry, no open bar this year. Like normal Boston meetups, it’ll be a cash bar.

How long will it last?
Generally in the past, meetups have gone a few hours. People will trickle in and out. It’s pretty informal.

What should I bring?
Bring yourself and a good attitude. Feel free to bring a laptop if you like, but generally not many have done that in the past. Also, there’s no free wifi in the area (that I know about).

Can I share this on my corp/alliance/social media/etc?
Please do! The more the merrier!

Can I bring non-Eve people?
Sure, but they’ll probably get bored.
