Philly getting a tabletop invasion with PAX Unplugged

Today the Penny Arcade team is leading a new charge with PAX Unplugged coming to Philadelphia November 17-19, 2017. The event will focus strictly on the tabletop, card and board gaming in the Pennsylvania Convention Center, taking elements from past PAX events to create a familiar atmosphere that lets fans engage with the industry.

PAX Unplugged is set to include musical concerts, tournaments, panels with industry figures to talk industry and the future of tabletop. The goal of Unplugged is to provide the same atmosphere to share enthusiasm and passion for board, card and tabletop gaming and see the latest creations on the market and coming soon.

From the brief:

With the rise of popularity of board games, we wanted to provide a dedicated space where fans can come together,” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder, Penny Arcade. “We will continue to have tabletop games at every PAX, but Unplugged will focus on stepping away from the TV, monitor and phone to foster face-to-face multiplayer experiences.”

Badges are set to go on sale for PAX Unplugged this Spring, for more updates those will follow on Twitter and their new site.
