If anyone is interested in taking part in a gaming get together, Achievement Fest 2014 has opened seat reservations.

You can check it out here.

It's usually a good time had by all, and many people do the 5-day pass.
I wish I could go at least once, but with wife and three kids (not to mention work) I'm just not in a position where i can tell the wife I'm going to Indiana to play games for three days. Oh to be younger again.
Who needs to be younger? You are actually in the median age. Most of us are married, with kids, and are 35-50 years old.

My wife comes along, and is already registered (LibrarianBeth).

So, bring the wife and kids, if they don't want to game, let them go to Indianapolis for the weekend, see some sites, do a museum, take a tour, whatever...

I hope you meant enticing. Inciting would be very different...

And you should go. Meet other gamers. Play on the EU and Japanese consoles. Take part in the Guinness World Record Attempt(s). Boost out difficult achievements.

Almost everyone there will have a 360 AND a WindowsPhone AND a Windows8 tablet/PC with them. Usually a few Android and iOS devices for anyone that needs those versions of Wordament. But, we were all turbo boosting the Red Dead Redemption Poker and Liar's Dice achievements, while also grouping up for WP MP achievements.

Very easy to coordinate when the other people are standing right next to you.

Been thinking about it since it started 2 years ago, going to tell a few friends on TA and do it

Thanks for the heads up Futiles
Don't forget to register at achievementfest.com. We are trying to get people using the forums there, make it one central location to plan out boosting sessions, after hours activities, sharing rides, sharing hotels, whatever else.
I am chatting with BoZack, too. Hopefully we will have information on discounted hotel rates and a block of rooms reserved for AF2014 attendees.

Sadly no...no update.. but there is still a sleight possibility...slight.....

Waiting to see if 5 of my friends are going, i don't think some of their wives are letting them cause we all went to the GiJoe Con for the weekend in April, will text them for an update.

Hotdogmcgee, dacoto, CKinAL, Buckswana, LibrarianBeth, and I add the two remaining seats in our room, which lets us put 3 people on each side, and that is well worth the slight extra cost.

My suggestion would be seats 56-63, the Red Room.
