We have short 20 minute walk-up PF RPG delves going on for most of each day and historically, seminars usually have extra seats open. There's also a board where we put unsigned-up-for-event tickets and people can leave tickets that they decide they won't be able to attend. Anyone can grab a ticket for an event off of there. Also, you can also check in with a GM to see if a ticketed player hasn't arrived at the start of the game. Its up the GM how long they want to wait or if they want to accept new players. Be open to trying new games or replaying old adventures, there's an atmosphere at conventions that can make even adventures you've already played a lot of fun, but so much of that convention atmosphere is what attendees themselves bring.
Pick up games also happen, but because I'm working during the con, I don't have much experience with those other than always making sure we've got open tables for people to use. During the 1p-6p time on all 3 days, the OP room (grand ballroom) will have a ton of open tables and there should be space in Evergreen 1 or 2 during the other slots.
Keep in mind, this is the first year we've done 4 days and left the 1p-6p time slot "open" where there is no PFS going on. It may mean seminars/games are a bit more crowded during that time. My suggestion would be that if something catches your eye on the event list, enter the lottery for it. You can always trade or give it away once we run the lottery.
On Monday, the event schedule is pretty light, but its the last day of the convention and you'll find lots of people are hanging around, making connections and chatting. 6 years ago at PaizoCon 2009, I sat and chatted with Cosmo, and some other employees. I had no idea that a few months later they would be looking for a CS rep and the rest is history :)
After discussing this a bit internally, Robot Chris and I think its best to remove it from the lottery and allow it to be open registration.
[PaizoCon 2015] EVERYTHING IS AWESOME! (Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Clowns) - Sunday afternoon, 1-6 pm
As soon as the tech team is able to turn that off, I'll be going through the people that managed to sign up for events and booting them so it doesn't affect their lottery results.
I can see there are quite a few people that have hopped on the PFS/non-lottery train while this has been up. if any of you see this can you please remove yourself from the event, it will save me a lot of time.
I am currently drooling over the list, and it doesn't look finished.......
Not even close. I've got Friday's games entered and I have about 18 more seminars. Unfortunately I need to call it a night, but I'll be back in bright and early to enter more! I've also have an assistant tomorrow as well to make it go faster.

I finished up the draft of the schedule Friday afternoon. Jeff and Erik are reviewing it o make sure things look good. I need to then enter events from my schedule onto Paizo.com. I don't think all the pieces are going to be in place this week, so I am shooting for sometime next week. As Chris said, we will plaster it all over paizo.com, facebook, twitter, email, etc when its ready for lottery selections.
Just wanted to give a quick update on where we are at with the schedule of events. I've tallied up all the submissions from Paizo employees and other companies and community members and we're looking at 176 events ranging from seminars, workshops, games and "other". This does not include Pathfinder Society RPG or ACG.
My goal is to have the event lottery up early or mid-April.
How the lottery selection works:
Kids Badges are not eligible for the Event Lottery process as they are meant for younger individuals who would not be doing as many games/events but are still interested in taking part in the convention. If a younger attendee is looking for a full convention schedule, they should purchase a full 4 day badge. Kids Badges can sign up to events when open registration begins if their badge has been transferred to an individual's account. There is no buddy system for open registration. There are some evens specifically targeted at kids which are left out of the lottery system specifically to make sure kids have the opportunity to sign up.
