PAX East 2014

From the PAX website:

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!

At PAX, you can find gaming and gamers of all types, and anything related to games. Attendees can expect to check out:

  • Concerts from prominent nerdcore and geek rock musics like MC Frontalot, Jonathan Coulton, and the Minibosses.
  • An exhibit hall filled with game companies big and small
  • The Omegathon - a tournament between 20 contestants facing off against games new and old to find the best Omeganaut
  • Panels galore covering every facet of the gaming world, for developers, fans, and scholars alike
  • Gaming opportunities of every kind: try out any of hundreds of console, tabletop, or PC games

Organized by Penny Arcade

Penny Arcade started as a webcomic in 1998 and has since grown to include Child's Play (a charity to raise money to supply games to children's hospitals) and the Penny Arcade Expo (a series of annual gaming conventions held in Boston, Seattle, and Australia), among many other game-related pursuits.
