PAX Australia & Melbourne Day 3

After surviving my first day at PAX, I was slightly more confident about where I was in the city of Melbourne. Walking through a drying town that had been rained on, but I was still dry, I got to see more of its faces.

Hot Chocolate and a cupcake.

Unlike my first time around, I found a perfectly healthy breakfast and didn’t have a sugar crash later in the day … at all.

Another day, another queue, but I was more prepared this time, arriving well after my previous outing and missing the formation of line number three. It was also fun to watch all the news crews around the place, where you could see those who understood what was happening and those who desperately did not.

The Resistance.

Today I wanted to take some time to explore one area that takes up a good 1/3 of the show floor. The tabletop area is packed full of tables and players delving into everything from classics to testing brand-new games. After loaning the game from the library, I played some in-person Among Us with a bunch of friends.

There was a lot to do during the day, including having a big lunch with friends and dodging another rainstorm. But that evening, I had seen ‘The Grand Mario Kart Milk Run’ from ETTO on the schedule, and well, you had to check what that was all about. I am not sure what I was expecting, but there was a lot of milk and Mario Kart, and a kid won an esky, so that was a delightful time. I then finished the day with the wonderfully wild Great Debate.

It was then time to take a walk back along the Yarra River because, at this point, I think I forced myself to get those extra steps in, which does get slightly undercut when you have an HSP for dinner.
