You might be asking yourself…
Why is AppAddict going to a board gaming convention?
Isn’t PAX Unplugged supposed to be analog tabletop board gaming convention?
Yes, while generally on our site we cover apps and digital games, there has been a notable increase in the appearance of digital apps in tabletop board games.
- Companion apps to help streamline things like stats and score keeping.
- Integrated component which enhanced the gameplay, adding new variety, variable elements or they might outright eliminate the need for a human player to be the game master.
- Digital port a digital implementation of a cardboard tabletop game which allows for play on a mobile device or PC, AI opponents and competition against other players around the world.
We want to see your app-assisted, app-augmented and/or digital board games at PAX Unplugged!
If you are a game publisher or designer and are going to be attending PAX Unplugged, we would absolutely love to get a look at any app-assisted, app-augmented and/or digital board games that you might be working on.
Even if you may not have these available on the show floor, if you have a mobile device with a beta build, we’d love to set up some time to get a peek at what you have in the works.
Hope to see you at the show!
