PAX is Penny Arcade Expo – a really HUGE game convention. From the website: “a supernatural gaming event!” We were there tonight setting up and having a great time.
Here’s the PAX website, lots of info and directions.
HUGE is the word, though. Thousands! People were lined up the whole way around the long block waiting to get in this afternoon. PAX was already so big this year that it had spread events out from the Meydenbauer Center to 3 area hotels as well. Check out the list of sponsors, mainly because that’s also the list of exhibitors who have a huge rockin hall full of loud gaming action happening:
