A new PAX convention was announced earlier this year during PAX South. PAX Unplugged will focus on tabletop gaming. It takes place November 17-19 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. Tickets have gone on sale starting this week.
Single day badges for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday cost $25 each. You can buy a 3-day badge for the whole weekend for $60. Special Sunday Kids badges are available for the 12 and under crowd for a discounted $10. Children age five and under are free with a paid adult. Badge limits are in place, limiting each household to six badges. Tickets are non-refundable.
“Tabletop gaming can mean a lot of different things, but whatever it means to you, I wan PAX Unplugged to a home for it,” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder of Penny Arcade. “There’s a renaissance right now in the space, and I can’t wait to see what’s next.”
The Penny Arcade Expos now consist of six different conventions spread throughout the year. Previous PAX shows focus on video gaming, with some degree of tabletop gaming included. PAX South has an especially large tabletop gaming presence.
PAX Unplugged will be the first PAX to focus specifically on tabletop gaming. Though video games that feature tabletop game elements will also be found there.
Developers and publishers who wish to exhibit at PAX Unplugged 2017 can apply here. If you’re interested in hosting a panel about tabletop gaming, panel submissions are open now. Media personnel can apply for a media badge.
