ReedPop and Penny Arcade announced that PAX East 2022 will return to an in-person event in 2022.
The event will take place from April 21, 2022, through April 24, 2022, at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
Returning will be the expo hall floor and various panels that con-goers attend. Further, players can enlist in a variety of competitive and casual games to play with others. Four-day and single-day badges will go on sale in the coming weeks, with exhibitors and a schedule to be announced in the lead-up to the show.
Show organizers ReedPop and Penny Arcade canceled PAX East 2021, prioritizing the health and safety of the community, and hosted PAX Online East in its stead. After hosting a safe PAX West over Labor Day weekend in Seattle, PAX East will feature even more stringent health and safety requirements, including mandatory vaccination and face coverings for all in the BCEC, with proof of vaccination to be required for all PAX events in the foreseeable future.
The tabletop focused iteration PAX Unplugged, taking place Friday, December 10 to Sunday, December 12 in Philadelphia, PA at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, will also mandate vaccines and face coverings as part of its health and safety guidelines. The event will be kicked off by a Storytime keynote from tabletop gaming veteran Aabria Iyengar.
Iyengar is a regular guest on the popular D&D show Critical Role, joining regulars Matt Mercer, Marisha Ray, Krystina Arielle, and more. She was the Dungeon Master on the beloved Exandria Unlimited miniseries, game master for Misfits and Magic and Into the Mother Lands, in addition to often appearing on Livestream tabletop roleplaying game series as a dungeon master or player, like on Saving Throw and The Adventure Zone.
Four-day and single-day PAX East badge prices and availability will be announced soon.
