S.-based geek conventions across gaming, anime, comics, sci-fi, fantasy, and more.
PAX draws in crowds large enough to fill a football stadium – and in record time. And that’s weekend passes doubled from $65 in 2013 to $110 in 2014.) Short for “Penny Arcade Expo”, PAX is known for representing a comprehensive breadth of gamerdom: from retro to next season’s anticipated console release, from tabletop gaming to independent gaming, expect to find it there. I could easily write blog posts for a solid week about PAX, so I should stop while I’m ahead.
(Would you believe me if I told you they sold out tickets this year in 30 minutes? Hopefully that’s enough to whet your whistle and get you watching the official PAX Twitter feed for when tickets are up for a whole, oh, I don’t know, 10 minutes before they sell out.

Check out the first in the series – a list of anime conventions! But in my experience of attending conventions for 14 years, you haven’t lived until you attend a convention. The Penny Arcade comic creators could branch off into a comic convention.
Find a good one and you’ll be on your way to a 72-hour non-stop high with hundreds or thousands of people who are just as passionate as you are. But why would they when they have built up a critical mass of a gamer fan following with their comic of nearly 4 million readers?
