Same, not planning on going this year but within the next few years and just want to get an idea of the prices so I can plan accordingly.

EDIT: About 15 minutes currently.

EDIT 2: Got in and the only passes available are Monday, damn those went quick.

Question can I expect the prices to stay the same or increase for next years PAX as I'm specifically planning a trip to Seattle next year?

I got into the queue about 5 minutes after it announced, waited roughly 10-20 minutes. Then got 4 1 day passes! so hyped

If you're in the queue right now, don't bother. Only Monday badges are left. Four day badges were gone within about two minutes of them going on sale.

I got into the queue about two minutes after it opened, and for some reason eventually got redirected to a server error page. Everything except Monday was gone by the time I went through the queue a second time.

Almost entirely sold out now, only tickets for Monday left.

A friend of mine and I both waited in the queue and we managed to get four 1-day passes each. But Christ, they're selling out at warp speed.

I got in 4 minutes after the Pax twitter account posted the link and after about 30 minutes I got in. 4-Day and Saturday passes were already sold out. Got 2 Friday passes.

I got in as soon as twitter updated, still missed the 4-day passes, but got 4 single day.

Still surprised how fast these go.

Managed to get Saturday and Sunday badges.
When does Giant Bomb usually do their panel? I hope I picked the right days.

Usually Saturdays, but that's no guarantee.

@ms_papercut: The GB staff don't have any control over the scheduling, so it could be on any day. You'll just have to cross your fingers and hope you get lucky.

I woke up 20 after the link was posted. A pretty depressing, soul crushing thing to wake up to: waiting in queue with a small glimmer of hope as all the tickets are being sold out.

Word of warning, according to co-workers. If you're in the queue now, it's probably too late.

Anyone have any past experience getting in at the door without preregistering? How'd that go?

My first year I just drove down to Seattle and walked in and bought a single day pass to check out what this PAX thing was all about, this was back in 07. Back in the good ol days when the tickets didn't sell out.

I can tell you if you're still in the queue, it's still possible for Mondays. Just got some. But dang it's fast.

@itwongo: Can only get 4 at a time.

I got in queue the moment it was announced on twitter and still missed 4 day passes. Pretty crazy.

I wonder what will happen next year - all ticket sold out before Twitter announcement?

In any case, we should probably have a GB party.

@alevan: Last Pax Prime I had a extra pass from my friend who couldn't go and I scalped it outside of the convention center. I was out for about 10 minutes before I sold it, didn't see anyone else selling tickets though.

Threads like this make me scared I won't ever be able to go.
