WHAT IS PAX TOGETHER?
PAX Together is a program which celebrates diversity, underrepresented groups and stigmatized topics, both at PAX and in the gaming community at-large.
PAX believes that games should be for everyone and made by anyone. Whether you're here to meet old friends or find new faves, we aim to have something for everybody.
WHAT ARE PAX TOGETHER PICKS?
PAX Together Picks is a curated selection of games, events, and panels which are recognized by PAX for celebrating and centering marginalized groups and stigmatized topics. A PAX Together Pick uplifts those of underrepresented backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences within gaming.
WHAT IS THE PAX TOGETHER INTERSECTION?
The PAX Together Intersection aims to be a reflection of the intersectional identities of gamers. This includes a variety of nonprofits and community groups focused on elevating underrepresented groups’ experiences and addressing stigmas in gaming culture. It is a safe and supportive space for anyone who wants to find community and commonality with other people who play games.
WHAT IS THE PAX TOGETHER INTERSECTION GAME LIBRARY?
The PTI Game Library features tabletop board and roleplaying games from small and independent BIPOC creators and creators of stigmatized identities. For PAX Unplugged '22, Games Unbound partnered with the PTI and will be helping to organize game sign ups, manage library submissions, and be on site in the PTI to facilitate games and answer questions.
