Big thanks to all of the Enforcers, exhibitors, and attendees for making the show happen, and we hope to see you next year!

Getting to PAX!

PAX East is exactly one week away! We hope you’re as excited as we are to get this show on the…road? That might not make sense. Whatever, just go with it.

Anyway, we wanted to run down the process of getting to the show. Obviously the BCEC does have a parking lot…several, actually, but parking is limited and it costs $18 per day, so we do strongly recommend public transportation whenever possible.

The #7 bus, Silver Line, and South Station all offer very convenient access to the BCEC. We’ve also very smugly warned Lyft and Uber that we’re kind of a big deal, so I would expect service will be pretty dramatically ramped up during PAX. Additional information can be found here, and as always, if you have any questions feel free to shoot us an email at pax_questions@paxsite.com.

Thanks everyone, and we’ll see you next week!

Magic Schedule

There’s always a whole ton of content run by exhibitors and other partners that never makes it onto the official PAX Schedule, but we especially felt like the schedule of Magic events deserved a shoutout. If you’re a magic player, you’re going to want to pay very close attention to all the events found right here. Big thanks to Pasttimes.net for putting this all together!
