Conquest @ PAX

Conquest are running a table at PAX Aus 2022. Come join us!

Missed out on Conquest this year, or want to see what we’re all about? Thanks to ARC Presents: PAX Aus at the Table, attendees at PAX Aus 2022 will have a chance to try out sample-sized versions of the games some of our talented GMs have to offer.

What is PAX Aus?

To paraphrase what’s described on the PAX Aus website, PAX Aus is a celebration of gaming and gaming culture featuring panels, an expo hall, game demos, musical performances, tournaments, vendors, and of course free play games of the video, board, and tabletop varieties.

Nestled in the Tabletop section, you’ll find PAX Aus at the Table, home of Tabletop RPGs at PAX.

 

When and Where?

PAX Aus is held across the 7th to 9th of October 2022, and is located at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
