PHILADELPHIA – May 17, 2018 – Tickets for PAX Unplugged 2018, the tabletop-centric entry in the international line-up of PAX events, taking place Nov. 30 – Dec. 2, 2018 at Philadelphia’s Pennsylvania Convention Center, are on sale now.
Single-day badges for the event will be available for $30, while three-day badges will cost $65. Pre-sale merchandise, including branded blankets, socks, and dice will be available as well.
Established in 2017, PAX Unplugged delivers the experience PAX attendees have enjoyed for more than a decade, but with a focus on celebrating card, board, and other tabletop games. Now in its second year, the show will build on the success from the inaugural PAX Unplugged, where tabletop fans had the opportunity to witness the reveal of new games, go hands-on with exciting upcoming titles, play in tournaments, and participate in panels with industry leaders.
Produced by ReedPOP, in conjunction with Penny Arcade, PAX– West, East, South, Dev, Unplugged, and Australia – have become some of the world’s largest gaming conventions, each with tens of thousands of guests every year. Every show is a celebration of gaming culture, where prominent game creators connect directly with the gaming community via panels, demos, concerts, tournaments, and freeplay sessions.

PAX, or Penny Arcade Expo, is a festival for gamers to celebrate gaming culture. First held in Seattle in 2004, PAX has nearly doubled in size each successive year, with PAX Prime 2014 selling out of tickets in a matter of minutes. Connecting the world’s leading game publishers with their most avid and influential fans, PAX expanded with a second show in Boston in 2010 and a third in San Antonio in 2015, making it the three largest gaming shows in North America. The first international PAX was held in Melbourne, Australia in 2013. In 2017, Penny Arcade announced PAX Unplugged, its first tabletop focused show, to be held in Philadelphia.
