Penny Arcade Expo Set for August

The third annual Penny Arcade Expo is a go, according to a press release from the chaps at Penny Arcade. The three-day event, a nonstop celebration of videogames and gamer culture, will take place Friday, August 25th through Sunday, August 27th, 2006 in Bellevue, Washington. This year's PAX will include an expanded tabletop gaming experience as well as attendees' favorite elements from previous years. Pre-registration is now open to the public at

Last year 9,000 people attended the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX), where they were able to check out playable game demos, game-industry conference panels, music from artists such as MC Frontalot and The Minibosses. There were also a number of gaming tournaments including the Survivor-style Omegathon: a gaming Olympics where participants' names are drawn from the pre-registration list to compete in multiple game formats. Last year's Omegathon prize was a collection of every product ever made for the Nintendo Entertainment System, as well a state-of-the-art limited-edition Star Wars-branded Alienware computer. This year's Omega Collection prize will be announced in June.

"Now that we have some distance from it, I am able to look back at PAX 05 objectively and say that it was the greatest gaming event ever held in the universe," said Penny Arcade's Gabe. "The honest truth is that we would have to be idiots to think that we could top it. So...that's what we intend to do!"
