At PAX South over the weekend, Penny-Arcade founder Jerry Holkins announced that PAX is going Unplugged with PAX Unplugged, an event dedicated to tabletop, card and board gaming. PAX Unplugged, the sixth addition to the international line-up of PAX events, will debut at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, November 17 - 19, 2017.
"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."
PAX Unplugged will be a destination for attendees to share their common passions and socialize over board, card and other tabletop games, which have experienced a renaissance in recent years. Penny Arcade and ReedPOP are happy to embrace the thriving tabletop scene and provide those around it with a welcoming atmosphere to take this resurgence to even greater heights.
You can learn more about the event on the official site, though details are scarce at this time.
