From Game Trials to Free Board Games! Photos taken from the PAX East 2018

 

Starting from today (April 5th), PAX East 2018 will be held for four days in Boston, USA.


PAX is somewhat different from other game shows. The title does not include any words like “game convention” or “game show”, and there aren’t many exhibitions and announcements from major game companies. It is an event that is dedicated to gamers only, with tons of exciting games that the participants can actually play.


The booths from major game companies had game trials and events, and a large area was designated for gamers to play TRPG, board games, and card games with other gamers. There are also places where participants can bring their own computers and play games, and where participants can borrow a PC. Literally, it’s an event that you go to in order to play games.


It was a game show where gamers are the core of the event. Below are some photos taken from PAX East 2018.
