HIIII okay so we finally got our passes for this! PAX Unplugged, for those who don't know, is a convention for tabletop and board games! This year it'll be December 6-8 in Philly. Posting here because after the meetup there was talk about potentially doing an unoffical Unplugged mini-meetup, and I wanted to see if there was still interest in that.

TAGGING MY EAST COASTERNERS! @I am nobody @Random User @ScottyMcGee @steeze
If I didn't tag you and you think you wanna go let me know too b/c I'd love to see all the VGF people! <3
(also, yeah, sorry for being kinda late on this; I'm told passes can sometimes sell out but it didn't look like it was anywhere close to that point just yet... work has been slow af so I wanted to make absolutely sure I could justify this purchase.)

I'm probably going, but still figuring out the details. It'd probably be for Saturday if I end up going.

Consider me a maybe.

I'd like to go and I could probably get the time off, but I'm not sure yet whether I can afford it.

I just calculated costs and it’s fairly cheap for me to go! I’m 87% confident that I can and will go. :)

This sounds tons of fun, but there is no way I'd be able to make it this year; I'm sorry.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Dude, I’m all graduated now. And I can leave Friday night and come home Sunday night. Even Mr. UN might come.

I'd love to come along but I've got a lot up in the air right now and there's almost no way I'd be able to manage a trip out east at this point :(

Oh hey what? Never been to PAX before. The only tablestop stuff I play is D&D. Philly is only a short train ride away from my apartment so I'd be down!

Sorry little sMoL, I can never take time off in December. That's the busiest time of year for my job unfortunately.

I should give an official answer by the end of this week as to whether I can make it to PAX. Won't be able to make it to MAGfest though. What days are we planning? I'd most likely do Saturday and/or Sunday.

I'll be there all three days (and so will squeege; I'm doing mag and he's not). Been put through the wringer IRL lately but planning on figuring out room-related stuff asap.

@United Nations @Valigarmander @ScottyMcGee Whatcha thinkin'? I'm going to ask Squeege to deal with the room etc since I'm handling MAGfest (and he's not even going to that lol).

@I am nobody Are you still thinking just Saturday?

I will be going for just one day. I assume everyone's going Saturday? I'll go whatever day everyone is going.

Unfortunately, it's not looking like I'll be able to make this one. :frown:
