What is PAX?

PAX stands for Penny Arcade Expo.

PAX is a three-day game festival for tabletop, videogame, and PC gamers. We call it a festival because in addition to dedicated tournaments and freeplay areas we've got nerdcore concerts, panel discussions, the weekend-long Omegathon event, and an exhibitor hall filled with booths displaying the latest from top game publishers and developers. Even with all this amazing content the best part of PAX is hanging out with other people who know their **** when it comes to games.

How much does PAX cost?

The three-day pre-registration rate is $45, which is a $5 discount from the at-the-door price. Details and the pre-registration link can be found here. We'll be mailing pre-reg badges the second week of August, so when you register, make sure to think ahead when you enter your mailing address.

Your PAX badge is all-access, and is good for all events, concerts, parties, panels, and freeplay areas. Only the TDL LARP and "sealed deck" tournaments, both of which require new physical product in order to be played, will have any sort of additional fee. You don't have to buy "tickets" for individual activities. Just show up and enjoy the whole festival!
