New PAX Convention Focused on Tabletop Games

January 31, 2017 - 7:15am
Yes! More board game conventions please! Penny Arcade just announced PAX Unplugged in front of tens of thousands of PAX South attendees. PAX (Penny Arcade Expo) is a series of extremely popular gaming conventions that primarily focus on video games, and now they are excited to branch out into the tabletop gaming world. Together with ReedPop, the world's leading producer of pop culture events, PAX Unplugged will be the sixth addition to the international line-up of PAX events and will debut at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, November 17 - 19, 2017.

"PAX Unplugged will take all the elements that have drawn millions of gamers to PAX - the chance to play and see the reveal of highly-anticipated upcoming games, attend game-inspired music concerts, participate in tournaments and watch panels with industry leaders - but with a renewed focus on fostering the best event for the burgeoning tabletop gaming community.

PAX Unplugged will be a destination for attendees to share their common passions and socialize over board, card and other tabletop games, which have experienced a renaissance in recent years. Penny Arcade and ReedPOP are happy to embrace the thriving tabletop scene and provide those around it with a welcoming atmosphere to take this resurgence to even greater heights."

Badges for PAX Unplugged will go on sale this Spring.
