Gamer Geek Icon Wil Wheaton To Keynote PAX East in March in Boston


Gamer Geek Icon Wil Wheaton To Keynote PAX East in March in Boston

BOSTON – Feb. 9, 2010 – Wil Wheaton -- celebrated gamer geek, D&D nerd and reoccurring villain Fawkes on The Guild – will bring his distinctive take on gaming to PAX East, Friday, March 26 – Sunday, March 28 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston.

A frank and elegant speaker on video gamer culture, Wil has been a perennial favorite of PAX attendees. His keynote at PAX Prime 2007 is still one of the most talked about in the history of the show.

“We’ve always considered Wil as the keynote speaker for PAX, so it’s only appropriate he kick off the first PAX East,” said Robert Khoo of Penny Arcade. “Wil is one of us. We accept him. Wil speaks to all gamers, from the console jock to the keyboard fanatic to the pen-and-paper devotees.”

The PAX East festival will bring gamers from all over the United States and points beyond together for three days of celebration of gaming culture. The Boston show will be jammed with panel discussions, concerts, tournaments and an exhibitor hall filled with the latest new games for pen-and-paper, tabletop, CCG, PC and console video game fans.

Show organizers want to remind all attendees to help create an enjoyable experience for everyone by obeying Wheaton’s Law: Don’t Be a Dick.
