I tried the line 3 times, being forced to quit the first two because of events I wanted to participate in. I was finally able to get in on Saturday.
I have to say, I know why Paizo had to handle the line that way. I also know (from talking to multiple vendors) that ICC was being particularly persnicketty this year with how they wanted people to handle their booths (and from a few rumors I heard on Sunday, it might be even more annoying next year); so kudos to you guys for handling it the way you did.
As for the whole experience...yes, the line may have been annoying, but:
1.I met new people while waiting in line, with whom I had very entertaining conversations about gaming.
2. I got a chance to just people watch, as the gen con hordes came and went. It actually gave me an excuse to watch the cosplays!
3. When I finally made it in, I got to talk to Lisa and Chris and Stephen and Erik and James and an especially awesome Paizo employee who swapped my goblin for a red horned demon (who shall rename nameless in case this might get 'em in trouble lolz) and it was just FREKIN' AWESOME AND PERFECT.
So a big applause to you guys. Paizo has, for 2 years now, been the highlight of my Gen Con experience.
