Enter the Kickstarter Games Castle at PAX East

Share this post

There’s only one place we know of where you can vanquish dragons and goblins, explore the furthest reaches of outer space, and battle an army of devious infants, all under one roof: the Kickstarter Games Castle at PAX East.

From March 10–12, game publishers, developers, and players will gather in Boston for PAX East, one of the largest games events in North America. We’re back at the event this year with an out-of-this-world mix of Kickstarter-funded video and tabletop games for you to peruse and play.

Featured tabletop games include Elan Lee’s Kickstarter record-smashing Exploding Kittens — which raised more than $8.7 million from nearly 220,000 backers in 2015 — and his newest creation, Bears vs Babies, brought to life with the help of more than 85,000 backers. Also on hand will be Secret Hitler, a game of devious political intrigue co-created by Cards Against Humanity creator Max Temkin. On the video games front, you’ll be able to dive into the beautiful, melancholic — and occasionally dangerous — worlds of the critically acclaimed The Flame in the Flood and Night in the Woods.

Read on for the full list of Kickstarter-funded games featured at the Kickstarter Games Castle at PAX East 2017 — and sign up for our Games newsletter to receive news and updates from the realm of Kickstarter Games.
