The highly anticipated PAX Unplugged 2023 exhibitor list has started to roll out, with Disney Lorcana by Ravensburger leading a star-studded roster of tabletop gaming giants. Hosted by ReedPop and Penny Arcade, this tabletop-centric expo returns to the Pennsylvania Convention Center from December 1-3. 2023.
Disney Lorcana, a standout title from Ravensburger, is set to share the limelight with renowned games such as Warhammer 40,000 by Games Workshop, the Cyberpunk series from R.Talsorian Games, Avatar: The Last Airbender RPG by Magpie, and the Gloomhaven RPG crafted by Cephalofair. In total, over 330 exhibitors are gracing the convention.
The weekend isn’t just about the exhibition, though. PAX Unplugged 2023 promises an exciting array of panels and live entertainment. The event kicks off with actor and game master Matthew Mercer hosting the Storytime keynote on Friday. Among the highlights is the latest Acquisitions Inc. episode, where Penny Arcade’s team collaborates with other tabletop personalities, adding another chapter to their long-standing series.
Classic games enthusiasts can delve into the Classic Cardboard section, while Omegathon offers a vast tournament, staying true to the PAX tradition, showcasing tabletop games from various genres. For those new to the tabletop scene, the Learn & Play zone provides a chance to learn from industry leaders. Attendees can also engage in community meetups and dive into both classic and contemporary games in the freeplay areas.
Jerry Holkins, Penny Arcade and PAX co-founder, shared his enthusiasm in a press release, stating: “PAX Unplugged is such an amazing way to wrap up the year. We’ve got an incredible show planned and I can’t wait to get down there and buy a wheelbarrow full of games and dice.”
For those interested, PAX Unplugged passes are available for purchase, with three-day badges at $85 and single-day ones at $40. There’s also a special offer for families, with Sunday Kids Day badges for children aged 7-12 priced at $13.
