But wait, there's more. (Cue the "oohh's" and "aahh's".)

We've got a lot in store for all you con-goers this weekend, including cookies, games, and prizes!

Where to Find Us:

Meet-ups & Freebies:

  • If you're looking to score some freebies, don't think it'll be so easy -- you'll have to know how and when to get them:
    • Come by our booth anytime to earn yourself a lil' somethin' somethin' as long as you say the magic words -- for Friday it's "warp pipe", Saturday it's "Fus Ro Dah", and Sunday it's "lawful good".
    • Swing by at 11am or 5pm for the opportunity to meet with Timmy, the Away Team monkeys, and win some awesome new shinies (as long as you're willing to face the Gom Jabbar).
  • The AbleGamers Foundation
  • You'll find us lurking in other areas of the con, too. Locate the AbleGamers Foundation booth in the Band Lands to learn more about their mission and maybe even snag a freebie! AbleGamers is a nonprofit charity dedicated to making video games accessible to anyone, especially individuals with disabilities. We've donated plenty of goodies to them this weekend to use to help fundraise their noble cause. Meet up with the ThinkGeek team on Saturday from 7-8pm to play a couple rounds of Pachinko for Charity! Come discover the joys of Pachinko.

Contests & Prizes:

    Cookie Brigade
  • If you're a fan of delicious treats and Child's Play, then we're sure you're familiar with the famous Cookie Brigade. We've partnered up with them, so if you make a Child's Play donation to a brigadier, you may also earn a raffle ticket and a chance to win one of three $100 ThinkGeek gift certificates! Just drop it off at the box at our booth to be eligible to win.
  • Play PINGO! (Or PAX Bingo, for all you muggles.) Download our PINGO board, fill it out throughout the con, and enter to win!
    • HOW TO WIN: Share photos of the items in the squares on Instagram, Twitter, where ever you like with the hashtag #PINGO. When you've completed a row for PINGO -- or the entire board! -- email a link to your photos to PINGO@thinkgeek.com. After PAX, 10 entrants will win mystery prizes!

We hope to see you there!


Get your PINGO board & start filling out those spaces now!

meaningless icon! Wil Wheaton at PAX East this year? or is that a ruse? or will Think Geek have a cardboard cutout of him at their booth that we can take pictures of?
