PAX East Gaming Conference Returns To Boston

April 10, 2014

If you see someone dressed as a fairy or a warrior walking around South Boston this weekend, don’t be alarmed. Some 70,000 diehard gamers are gathering at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center for the annual PAX East conference. The three-day event features live music and product demos, but it isn’t all fun and games. 

Panel discussions will tackle topics like the lack of racial and gender diversity in gaming and how to get a land a job in the industry.  


  • Ethan Gilsdorf is part of a panel discussion called “Why Dungeons and Dragons is Still Awesome.” He’s also the author of the book “Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks.” Read his survival guide to PAX East on
