The first-ever PAX Unplugged, a PAX dedicated to tabletop gaming, is just a few weeks away (Nov. 17-19) and I couldn’t be more excited!
Today some announcements about featured events from Penny Arcade’s Acquisitions Inc., Geek & Sundry’s Critical Role, and Wizards of the Coast’s Dice, Camera, Action came through and I figured I’d share the details. These are pretty much straight from the press release sent out:
Boasting the longest-running show on Dungeons & Dragons‘ Twitch channel, Dice, Camera, Action! LIVE at PAX Unplugged will see Wizards of the Coast’s resident Dungeon Master, Chris Perkins take Holly Conrad, Jared Knaubenbaur, Anna Prosser Robinson, Nathan Sharp, and an unannounced special guest, deeper into the jungles of the Chult on Friday, Nov. 17, 8:30pm -11:30pm at the main stage.

The team will dive into the past adventures of Vox Machina, what may be in store for the next campaign and answer questions from fans.

Tickets for PAX Unplugged are still on sale if you’re interested and can make it out to Philadelphia for what seems like is going to be an amazing convention. I’ll be there covering new game releases, some exclusive events, and pretty much anything else cool I can lay my eyes on.
