Mostly size, but also there's a pretty big damage risk. At least for a paranoid FlutterMai like me.

Looking forward to the social stuff at PAX a lot. My travel-buddy who was there a couple of years ago has done a really good job of selling me on the con ^_^ I think we're going to book our flights tonight or tomorrow; just have to decide how much time to allow for being Boston tourists since I failed at that last time I was there

I would say get into BAWWSTOONN early Thursday and leaving everything but the evening free. Once Team ANARCHRIS REIGNS gets our collective shit together, FUN DRANKING TIME IN ENSURED!

Also HOLY SHIT, expect this crowd to ruin other cons for you. PAX PEOPLES ARE BEST PEOPLES, THEY ARE OLDER, NICE AND CHILLAX, YOU WILL LOVE THEM!

Are the crowds really that different from other cons? I mentioned this before - I've never been so I don't really know.

Despite it's size, PAX East is way more relax as a con. The crowd is older, so you don't get a lot meme screaming children, and the cosplay scene is at maybe a 1/4th of the attendees. It's very much more about the programming and games than it is standing around posing for photos.

That being said, you also need to stay on top of shit. I waited in line for about 2 hours for both the Mass Effect and the Gearbox panels. Was it worth it? YUP. Do you need to do it for any of the big games/panel. YUP.

Not to mention the halls are lined with SUMOs so you can just flop down wherever you like. XD

I'm looking forward to seeing the evolved PAXeast - the first year was awesome despite all the first-time hiccups!

You'd better not be planning to put that contraband chocolate in my suitcase >_>
I'm a terrible liar. They'd never believe I didn't know.

Friendship is magic FlutterMai. And that magic often requires friends to smuggle candy for other friends.

Does anyone have any advice I should know as a first time attendee? Besides getting in lines waaaaay ahead of time. That goes without saying.
