Hi Everyone!

 

 

This is a little late...but its almost time for PAX South 2018!

 

Who's going? 

 

I'll be headed there. Should be a good time. This is my 10th PAX. Been to a lot of Primes/West, a few Easts, and a few Souths

General Info for PAX Newbies

Under the spoiler are tips for enjoying PAX and all the info about food, transportation, and miscellaneous info (like Seattle sightseeing) from last year's thread. All this stuff is old hat for most of the people who follow this thread, but for those who are new to PAX West, hope this is useful :)

Helpful Tips

- Wear comfy shoes! Comfy clothing, too, but comfy shoes are more important.
- Bring the following stuff with you every day: PAX badge, schedule book/Guidebook app and lanyard (available at the show), bottled water, cash, hand sanitizer, camera of some kind (you mean a smart phone?), poster tube, handheld gaming device(s) of your choice.
- Be especially courteous to the Enforcers! They are volunteers who are there to help you, and they are awesome.
- Take showers (and practice proper hygiene in general) every day! A shower only takes 10 minutes each day and guarantees you won't be "that guy/gal with the confunk".
- If you're cosplaying, use common sense! Here's PAX's policy on prop weapons.

I went last year, but didn't get a chance to go this year. How was it?

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

It was pretty good. I went in 2015 and 2016. I enjoyed that it was laid back. Not many of the panels interested me this year but I had a great time not waiting in line and playing a ton of Indie games
