My Haul from Pax Unplugged 2018

Pax Unplugged is quickly becoming an annual tradition for me. Three days of board games? Yes please! Like any convention I go to, I wanted to buy way more games than I can carry…

First off I bought this Dice Tower playmat.

I got Rooster Rush and Click Clack Lumberjack from Mayday Games. In Click Clack Lumberjack, you get to swing an ax to chop a tree down (it is like a cross between Jenga and Don’t Break the Ice) and it looks like a really fun kids game. I can’t wait to try it and probably the game I am most excited about.

A mystery box is a must for me in any convention and I got a Board Game Booster Box. The games that I got are Arkham Ritual, Creative Clash, Provincia Romana and two Jak and Poi decks. Honestly I haven’t heard of any of these games but Arkham Ritual looks interesting.

I also got a bunch of freebies and promos. I am very excited to get Button Men buttons and I really want to give Kids on Bike RPG a shot!

Finally the Exploding Kittens booth was a ton of fun. You get a random item for $1 and trust me, it is really random. My friends and I got a batch of asparagus, a corn with a fake mustache attached to it, sunglasses and a lei, a pool noodle that said ramen noodle and a watermelon that said this is art. It is really something to see my friend carrying a watermelon around the convention…

All in all, another good year (even though my back hurts from carrying so many games). I highly recommend Pax Unplugged for anyone interested in board games or role playing games and in the Northeast area.

    Do you ever attend Dexcon/Dreamation in New Jersey? They’re my favorite gaming cons, and not too far from Philly….
