Get Ready for PAX Prime

PAX Prime is taking place this coming weekend in Seattle, and several GeekDads and GeekMoms will be in attendance. I’m looking forward to it myself, having missed a few of the other big gaming conventions this year, and I’m sure there are a lot of awesome games and panels to check out. Okay, I’ll be honest: I’ll probably skip most of the panels to play board games. But there is at least one panel I won’t miss, and if you’re going to PAX you should put it on your schedule: the GeekDad/GeekMom panel will be on Sunday at 1:30pm in the Kraken Theatre on the first floor of the Grand Hyatt. We’ll be covering a few different topics about parenting and gaming, and we’ll be giving away a whole lot of swag: games, books, DVDs, toys! Thanks to our generous prize providers: Calliope Games, Catalyst Games, Game Salute, Hasbro, Pokemon, Shout Factory, Stratus Games, Sony Playstation, Thinkfun, ThinkGeek, and Wizards of the Coast. (Sorry if I’ve missed a few—these are what we’ve received so far.)

As for me, I’m looking forward to meeting some of the GeekMom writers that I haven’t met yet, catching up with some of my favorite board game companies, and playing a lot of games. We’re still hoping to rope in Wil Wheaton for a game or two, but I think his schedule is pretty busy. Oh, and GeekDad Erik Wecks and I may be running a few demos of our own game in the tabletop areas. Watch for folks wearing GeekDad and GeekMom T-shirts, and if you see us at PAX say hello!

Not attending PAX? The panel will also be livestreamed through Twitch.tv — more on that as soon as we have the URL.
