There’s plenty of love for PAX and what they do with their video game events, PAX Unplugged 2017, the first tabletop-focused PAXevent, will focus exclusively on Board Games and other Tabletop fare.
PAX Unplugged has announced their stable of prominent exhibitors, including Wizards of the Coast, Paizo, Fantasy Flight, Asmodee, and CMON, among many others.
The Tickets for the show, taking place November 17-19, 2017 at Philadelphia’s Pennsylvania Convention Center, are available now.
The announcement of Penny Arcade’s expansion in a Tabletop direction was in response to the Tabletop sections at each PAX in the United States (and in Australia) growing year on year.
Part of Penny Arcade’s international roster of events, PAX Unplugged will reflect the experience millions of PAX attendees have enjoyed for more than a decade, but with a spotlight on card, board and other tabletop games, celebrating the medium’s rich and thriving culture. Attendees will have the opportunity to see the reveal of new and exciting titles, go hands-on with upcoming games, partake in tournaments and sit in on panels headlined by the industry’s leading minds.
“The breadth and depth of the inaugural PAX Unplugged exhibitor roster is a sight to behold,” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder, Penny Arcade. “I want to go to there.”
While PAX Unplugged will cater to the tabletop industry and affiliated communities, a selection of video games featuring board and card game elements will also have a place at the show.
