PAX Unplugged 2018

-

Philadelphia, PA, USA, United States

When we founded PAX, we were always careful to carve out a part of the show for Tabletop games. It's always been a part of the convention people could define for themselves, make new friends, and it would be hard to count the number of games who had their start at those tables. It's a point of pride for us that no matter how much space we give it, the Tabletop section of any show always fills up. Eventually, we had to realize that this part of PAX had its own identity and its own culture inside the larger continuum, and we wanted to give it a place to stretch out a bit. Welcome to PAX Unplugged.
