BackerKit will be at PAX Unplugged in Philadelphia from Friday December 2nd through Sunday December 4th. PAX U is one of our favorite cons to attend as it’s always a pleasure to scour the exhibit hall floor, attend the panels, play the games, and yes, buy the games. But above all, it’s about the people. A truly priceless experience to get facetime with the tabletop gaming community we all love so much. Be sure to visit our booth and take part in our Exhibit Hall Passport activity.BackerKit is once again teaming up with Knight Moves Cafe to co-host an amazing booth space featuring an impressive lineup of up-and-coming game designers playtesting their games. If previous years are any indication, the next big game will be playtesting here. Be sure to mark us on your map and check it out.
