    Official NoobToob Schedule for PAX![/CENTER]

    [CENTER]
    When: Thursday, August 25 - Noon
    Where: Seattle Center
    What: Excursion at Seattle Center

    [/CENTER]

    We would like to try something new for this year's PAX invasion. One thing we've heard in the past is, as a group we don't really have the chance to explore Seattle or see any of the attractions it has to offer. So we would like to lead an excursion to the Seattle Center (view map) on Thursday afternoon.

    [hide="Details"]
    • Noon - Meet as a group on the top floor of the Westlake Center (the mall)
    • 12:10 p.m. - Ride the Monorail to the Seattle Center (cost: $4 roundtrip; travel time: 2 minutes)
    • 12:15 p.m. - Arrive at Seattle Center; Eat lunch
    • 1:30 p.m. - Visit the EMP (Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum) to see Battlestar Galatica The Exhibition, Avatar: The Exhibition and more exhibits (cost: $18); Visit Space Needle (cost: $18 to go up to the deck) and other attractions
    • 5 p.m. - Meet back at the Monorail
    • 5:10 p.m. - Return to Westlake Center; Refreshen up before Meet n Greet at 8 p.m

    [CENTER]Times are subject to change. Check Twitter for the latest.
    [/CENTER]

    The Seattle Center has numerous attractions so some members may wish to visit something other than the EMP and that is fine. Visit the Seattle Center website to learn more. The Monorail does run every 10 minutes so you can join us late or return to your hotel early as desired.[/hide]

    When: Thursday, August 25 - 8PM

    Where: Rock Bottom Restaurant Brewery
    What: Thursday Meet n Greet!
    [/CENTER]

    Nervous about coming to PAX for the first time? Don't know many people? Well, after a long flight why don't you come down to the Rock Bottom Brewery and break the ice with fellow NoobToobers. Located on 5th Avenue and University St, it's the perfect place to wind down and relax with good food and good friends. The reservations will more than likely be made under NoobToob so stop on by and witness a bj or two.

    The reservation is made under Crystal Ward (or NoobToob). PLEASE BRING CASH!


    [CENTER]Let us know you are coming!

    When: Saturday, August 27 - 8PM
    Where: Console Free Play Room
    What: NoobToob Night (formerly KickleFest)
    [/CENTER]

    This *is* the event to come to. If you can only make it for one day this PAX, make sure it is this one. NoobToob is taking over the Retro Gaming Room for a fourth year in a row. Note: Pizza will not be provided this year so bring your own food and drink if desired.

    8:00PM - Gather in the Retro Gaming Room
    8:15PM - Game Swap
    8:45PM - Group Photo
    9:00PM - Mortal Kombat Tournament (live stream subject to Internet availability)
    , high-score challenges and many more games!

    [hide="Game Swap Details"]Share your gaming likes with a fellow NoobToob member. To participate, bring with you a current generation console game ($20 max limit). Games can be used, but should be in working condition.

    This isn't a chance for everyone to pawn off their copies of Halo 3 or Call of Duty. Bring a game that you enjoyed, but others most likely haven't played. Wrap the game in paper to conceal its identity. Everyone who brings a game will be eligible to pick a game from the pile, one-by-one. You can keep the game or steal a game from another member! You won't know what game you'll get to take home until the very end.

    Feel free to be as creative as you wish. You can wrap you game in anything from newspaper to comics; paper towels to toilet paper. Do you best Gameshark impression and take a black sharpie to the paper wrapping. Base it on a theme like wrapping Bayonetta in paper covered in hair (ew!) or be evil and make it completely unrelated to throw people off. [/hide]
    [hide="Mortal Kombat Details"]Post in this thread to guarantee your spot in the tournament. More details will be provided as soon as we know how many people wish to participate.

    Live Stream - We'd like to stream this event for all those unable to attend PAX this year. However, we'll need to wait to see how the wifi connection is that night in the room.[/hide]

    The seminars for Sunday may not be as good as the two previous days, but that doesn’t mean us here at NoobToob are going to take it lying down. Close off the events of PAX with one final ‘official’ get together.

    Notes:
    For the game swap, does it not matter what is offered for systems as long as it's PS3, Wii, or 360? I don't want to piss anyone off if I put a Wii game in the pot and that's not cool.

    EDIT: Not doing the game swap.

    Friday I'm going with the group whereever. I'm with Doc in that I'd rather be drinking, but since everyone here has a boner for Giant Bomb, I guess I'll be doing that.

    For the Farewell dinner, I'll be there but I have to leave at around 9pm. My flight is at 11:30p on Sunday, so I'll need time to pack + 45 minute train ride + traveling time out and about. Hopefully I wont have to leave too early.

    We were thinking PS3 and 360 as we were planning this since that's what most members have. But personally I don't have an issue if you bring a Wii game. Several members have that too.
