PAX's First Look area is our "hot games" section located in Hall D, and will be open during all show hours (Fri & Sat: 10AM to Midnight, Sun: 10AM to 6PM). These are the games we feel you should play; whether they be the hottest new titles direct from Essen, unreleased titles, or other titles without US distribution that we think are expressing new and important ideas in tabletop gaming.

The PAX Enforcers are our show staff, and a team of First Look Enforcers will be present at all times to facilitate play. We cannot guarantee every game will have a dedicated teacher, but we will do our best! The area is enormous and we're excited to see you all playing your new favorite games. To that end...

Deploy your thumbs!

PAX Unplugged badges are available for sale at unplugged.paxsite.com

A special thanks to Capstone and Spielworxx for helping us bring you all of these games!
