    Thanks to BotCon.com

    http://www.botcon.com

    Free games.....OH HELL YEAH I'm so there :rock 

    So I guess this more or less makes Dave and Busters the Official after hours hang out for BotCon

    Sweet bonus! Just hope I get a chance to use it -- I'm envisioning looooong lines at registration pickup on Thursday.

    Might not be as long as you think, the update say to registered guest upon check-in to the Hotels. Not to pre-registered guests.

    The way I interpret it, it goes to the people who's names are one the computer for the room. If it's the other way, that's alot of free games since who knows how many of us are sharing rooms with 2+ people

    Kinda annoying with that roomsharing thing. Oh well, I don't know what this Dave and Busters is so I don't care much.

    Yeah, I know that's when we get the card. But I don't know if we're all going to have a chance to actually go and play the games if the Primus package pickup lines are horrendous.

    There's six hours between the start of pickup and the movie, though. Surely that'll be enough time to do other things in between.

    Well that is nice for those who booked one of the botcon hotels, Im glad I booked a hotel that didnt cost an arm and a leg, with the left over money I could buy a few games at D&B's.

    I can't believe how much and how far FP and the crew are going to. To make this BotCon so great....I mean sheesh how much more can they add now?

    He's from the Netherlands...I doubt they have a Chuck E Cheese overseas :lol  So he won't know that reference either

    Hi-Q, Dave and Buster's is basically a bar/pub. Where you can play a variety of games. Think of if like an arcade/amusement centre for adults :)

    hey thats pretty cool of them! Although how many fans are going to want to play games instead of wait in line for the movie? I guess groups could take turns going back and forth and not losing space in line

    It only applies to those who booked the room through the BotCon Group Rate. I booked mine as a package through Expedia thus am not qualified

    Excellent. If they are anything like the ones up here, you can pint while gaming as well.

    Dave and Busters -

    Adult styled arcade. You have to be 21 just to be able to get in, and you have to be 25 to get anyone under the age of 21 to come in. Basically, think of an arcade that serves food and booze.

    The last time I went, it was Jaeger's Night Out ... got a bunch of free Jaeger crap.

    That sounds like it will make the hotel less painful. Has anyone found a cheap hotel close to the convention. I have a room at one of the official convention hotels at $170 a night. I was hoping to find a real close Dirtbag Inn for $40 a night or so. I would have to bring my rollout and sleep on the counter, but if it gave me more money to spend at Botcon I'd be happy, with a can of Lysol.

    Hmmm... sounds like the type of place I generally don't like. If I get such a card I'll give it to someone who didn't.

    I was kinda hoping for a real kinda useful update. This is a nice little gift and all. I'm just sayin'. Maybe telling us a guest or two? I dunno, something.
