Demo our new releases

In the First Look Area or at our booth!

Every year, PAX Unplugged organizes the First Look Area, which is full of the latest and greatest games that first premiered at Essen SPIEL. PAXU staff is scheduled in this area to teach you the rules and answer questions, so you can easily discover the new hotness.

We have TWO games in this area:

Of course, we are also giving guided demos at our booth #3107. Swing on by and try all of these great, new games:

Learn & Play events

For Turing Machine and Akropolis!

PAX Unplugged has selected Turing Machine (10:30am-12pm) and Akropolis (5pm-7pm) for two Learn & Play events hosted on Saturday!

Games will be taught, with the first ten tables of players given the chance to play the game in full. No registration is required. Players will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis leading up to event start time.

Scavenger Hunt with Queen & Rook

Demo Movie Mind, win Turing Machine!

We are partnering with local Philly game cafe Queen & Rook as one of the stops in their PAXU scavenger hunt!

Stop by their booth #3622 to receive the instructions and map for the hunt, then hurry over to our booth #3107 for a demo of Movie Mind. We'll give you a sticker for your map, and you can continue your search (or stick around and play more games with us!).

Turn in your completed map at the Queen & Rook booth #3622 to be entered into a raffle to win a variety of prizes -- one of which is a copy of Turing Machine!
