Sonic, the Master Chief, and me

Today was day #1 of PAX, and it was fast and furious. Over 60,000 eager attendees entered the Washington State Convention center to play, interact, and to discover what is on the forefront of the world of board, card, and video gaming.

One of our favorite things to do on the first day is to walk the show floor and experience the quirky world of cosplay. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it is short for costume play; which is way more than the mere act of “dressing up.” Cosplay is a subculture of the gaming industry where participants assume the personality and persona of a specific character or idea…and PAX didn’t disappoint. See what you think!
