PAX Unplugged, the tabletop-centric gaming convention, is returning for the first time in two years, taking place December 10-12 at the Philadelphia Convention Centre.
The three-day event is the most attended tabletop gaming convention in the Eastern United States, and attendees can expect to see new game demos, exciting tournaments, panels with prominent members of the industry, and more. Badges will go on sale “soon” according to a press release, with a three-day badge costing $75 and a single-day badge for Friday, Saturday, or Sunday costing $35.
There is one major change this year, however, as the show will require all attendees to provide proof of their full COVID-19 vaccination series, and will also require everyone to wear a mask. There’s more information on the official PAX Unplugged site, in the health and safety guidelines section. These are the same steps PAX West recently took for its attendees as well.
Anyone that attends PAX Unplugged can expect a wealth of updates from some of the biggest tabletop makers out there. Here’s a description of the event from an official press release,
“Hundreds of game publishers, independent creators, and vendors will showcase their wares in Philadelphia, PA, including many of the biggest names in board games, role-playing games, miniatures, and card games.
