PAX has been a staple of gaming for many years, and the growth of tabletop as a medium meant that PAX has created its own event just to showcase the tabletop experience. Going on right in my home town of Philadelphia, it is sure to be a great start to what I hope is a tradition. Tickets went on sale just a little while ago, and are going fast. Read below for more information.
Tickets for PAX Unplugged 2017, the inaugural tabletop-focused addition to the international line-up of PAX events, taking place November 17-19, 2017 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, are now on sale. Single day badges cost $25, 3-Day badges are $60 and Sunday Kids badges (for 6-12 year-olds) are available for $10.
Providing a familiar experience that has entertained millions of PAX attendees for more than a decade, PAX Unplugged will give tabletop, card and board game enthusiasts a dedicated event to celebrate their rich and thriving culture. Attendees will have the opportunity to witness developers reveal new and exciting titles, play highly anticipated unreleased games, participate in tournaments and observe panels headed by industry luminaries.
Although PAX Unplugged will focus on tabletop gaming, video games featuring tabletop game elements will also be present at the expo.
“Tabletop gaming can mean a lot of different things, but whatever it means to you, I want PAX Unplugged to be a home for it,” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder, Penny Arcade. “There’s a renaissance right now in the space, and I can’t wait to see what’s next.”
