PAX West is a four-day game festival for tabletop, videogame, and PC gamers. It is called a festival because in addition to dedicated tournaments and freeplay areas there are nerdcore concerts, panel discussions, and an exhibitor hall filled with booths displaying the latest from top game publishers and developers. Even with all this amazing content the best part of PAX West is hanging out with other people who know their shit when it comes to all sorts of games.
