PAX tickets sell out within days, or even hours, of going live (which happens 3 months before the event is to be held). So if you plan to attend you better have a game plan and cat-like reflexes. Pay close attention to announcements about when tickets will go on sale, and be ready with Eye of the Tiger on loop the morning sales open up.
Even if you are lucky enough to live in Seattle (like we do) and could travel to PAX daily, we highly recommend making hotel reservations within walking distance of the Convention Center. Standing around in line to play video games may not sound like a tiring activity, but considering the average activity level of video game connoisseurs, even a single day at PAX can be exhausting. Having your own clean bed to nap in is greatly preferable to the vast expanses of multicolored bean bags, glistening with the sweat of who knows how many other gamers.
