If you’re a fan of games, any kind of games, and live in New England, you should consider going to PAX East, and possibly even bring your kids. It is more family friendly than most cons.
PAX is the Penny Arcade Expo that features up and coming video games, tried and true franchises, board games, card games, dice games, role-playing games, game consoles, rooms filled with people playing games, arcade classics, music, shopping, panels and other nerd-fun.
So check it out! You’ll have fun with the whole family, and maybe even play Dance Central in front of God and everyone!
