If you want to include gaming, Xbox required badges but Nintendo did not.

The Hunger Games exhibit at the Hard Rock did not require a badge. I didn't go to the Pixels arcade nearby, but I believe that was badge-free, as well.

I think pixels was supposed to be badge holders only but wasn't enforced same with GOT.

You make a good point:GoT had signs outside saying a badge was required, but I don't recall anyone checking them.

Still, I would count it as 'badge required'. I will change the status of Pixels.

XBox lounge was but there was a community event where they just checked my ID and gave me a wristband.
