Due to the ongoing pandemic, PAX East was an online-only affair in 2021.

However, after a successful in-person PAX Unplugged this past weekend, PAX East will be returning to Boston this April from Thursday, April 21st through Sunday, April 24th.

Just like with PAX Unplugged, there will be new safety precautions in place, meaning that ALL attendees must be both fully vaccinated as well as wear mandatory face coverings at all times while in the venue.

Having narrowly dodged a possible disaster two years ago, when another Boston-based convention (the same weekend as PAX East 2020) turned out to be a super-spreader event at the start of the pandemic, I am thrilled that PAX will be back and that the folks in charge have added the new measures to keep attendees and staff safe and healthy.

We’ve just received word that badges for this four-day gaming extravaganza in Beantown will be going ON SALE LATER TODAY at 3pm EST / Noon PST.

Due to the two-year hiatus, these tickets will likely sell out rather quickly, (especially Friday and Saturday), so grab them as soon as possible.

If you live on, or near the East Coast and are a video and/or tabletop gaming fan, then you should really consider attending at least one day of the show. Thursdays and Sundays tend to be a little less crowded but equally as fun.

We’ll update this post with availability once sales open, but single-day badges will sell for $62, with four-day badges available for $235 and there will likely be some exclusive merchandise items that can be purchased when buying your badges.

This is an absolutely fantastic show, which I’ve attended every year since it started on the East Coast, so again, I highly recommend checking it out for at least one of the four days.
