“PAX Unplugged is an exciting analog-focused extension of their already existing portfolio of PAX events.”
PAX Unplugged focuses on a side of gaming that is sometimes forgotten; Tabletop Gaming. This convention made a spectacular debut last year at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. I was fortunate enough to attend last year; and got a real sense of the future of tabletop gaming. (Also, I really enjoyed the cookies from the Cookie Brigade.)
PAX Unplugged is back for it’s next turn at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on November 30 through December 2! It’s a three day event with over 200 exhibitors, panels, tournaments, performances, pin trading and more! Tickets are currently available for purchase on the PAX Unplugged website. A 3 Day Badge is $65*, 1 Day Badge is $30* and Sunday Kids Badge is $10*; you can also purchase exclusive merchandise on the site as well.
Guests will be able to interact with their favorite gaming companies and be able to see what’s new to come from them. Often exhibitors give out free swag to those who play/test games, so explore as many booths as you can!
PAX Unplugged will have a family room for little gamers and will have Family Day on Sunday! So consider bringing the whole family.
My favorite part of the con last year were the panels! This year guests can enjoy panels by Acquisitions Inc., The Waffle Crew, Shut up & Sit down and Dice Tower to name a few. You can see a full schedule for each day on Pax Unplugged’s website.
If you’re going alone or with a small group, I recommend the LFG Area. You can meet up in the LFG Area and meet new friends who want to play similar games from their extensive lending library. It’s a great way to enjoy the convention for those who are a bit introverted.
Whether you are a tabletop gaming newbie or an expert, PAX Unplugged 2018 has something for everyone to enjoy!
