Another year, another PAX East come and gone…
We had a pretty good time this year, and didn’t really feel pressured to cram in as many panels as possible like the first year, or to demo all the games we could like last year. We got to see friends, old and new, and had some incredible food (Pasta Beach, I’m lookin’ at you).
The swag for day 3 was pretty slim…I went by the Chessex booth — yes, again — and snagged another bag of D20s. I got a Penny Arcade shirt on our way out of the expo hall; it has a D2o on it, “1″ side up, with “I feel shame as a minor action.” XD I did manage to snag another Secret World beta weekend code, another tauntaun pet code for SWTOR, and a handful of limited edition artifact codes for Novus Aeterno. I will be giving codes away in the coming days with some sorts of contests or something, so watch my Twitter feed!
I strolled through the tabletop area while looking for Green Armadillo and saw these crazy little wooden semicircles called Skallops. You can get a kit that includes gobs of the little doohickeys and a deck of cards; you connect the cards with the Skallops and let your imagination run free! The inventor (which of course was some guy in his early 20s, hehe) was manning the booth, and he gave a mighty good pitch. They were making hats (one guy even made a neat crown), skyscrapers, and all kinds of crazy stuff. Plus, he was using Square to take payments, and that made the booth even more awesome! Here, take the money! TAKE IT!!
Here’s an album of the pics I took, and here are the pics specifically from our Saturday night tweetup. I’m the world’s worst at remembering names, so if you guys can help me fill in some of the blanks, I’ll be your BFF.
