In 2004, the folks at Penny Arcade decided they wanted a show exclusively for gaming. Sure, comics, anime, and other nerd hobbies were cool, and those activities all had their own shows… so what about games? From that idea spawned a small 4,500 person event in Bellevue, Washington, focused on the culture and community that is gaming.
Since then, the show hasn't looked back. Doubling in size each year until venue capacities were reached, in 2010 the show expanded into Boston for PAX East, drawing tens of thousands of attendees in the inaugural year. The shows in Seattle and Boston represent the two largest gaming events in North America!
We went in 2011 and have been going through withdrawals ever since. So, we are going back in 2013. This convention is a don't miss for any serious gamer! Three days packed full of video, pc and board game heaven.
Three day passes are now on sale. THEY GO REALLY FAST so get yours now! Even if you are not sure you can go, purchase your passes now and if you find that you can't go, sell them. PEOPLE WILL PAY A LOT OF MONEY FOR THEM.
