Wow! There are less than 40 days until PakEX. I guess it’s time we started telling you all about it! Over the next couple of weeks, you can expect a lot of exciting news as we highlight the events and activities we’ll be running and introduce you to the wonderful sponsors who have helped ensure PakEX can run as a free community event. 

PakEX 2020 - Cardinia's first Board Game & Hobby Expo - A Free Community Event!

What is PakEX?

PakEX 2020 is Cardinia’s first board game and hobby expo highlighting and showcasing worlds of excitement and adventure from the comfort of your lounge room. The inaugural PakEX will be held on Saturday March 14th 2020, starting from 10am at the Outlook Community Centre.

Have you ever seen a game on the shelf and thought “I’d like to play it, but I don’t want to buy it and discover it’s not right for me?” If so, PakEX is for you! It’s an opportunity for you to come and try out board games, card games, role playing games (RPGs), and various tabletop games with no risk of buyer’s remorse! There will be volunteers running demonstrations of all different games to give you a chance to try things out, and see if you enjoy it.

What’s at PakEX for me?

Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be posting about all the games that will be available to try out at PakEX. If you’re looking to broaden your horizons and try your hand at some different games, we’ve got you covered. Wondering why RPG’s like Dungeons and Dragons are so popular at the moment? We’ll have the answer for you. Maybe you’re a bit more experienced and you’re just looking to try out some new games before you make a purchase? Come on down, our volunteers would love to run you through a couple of demos’.

How much does it cost?

The organisers of PakEX have worked hard to ensure that it’s a free community event. Our sponsors and traders will be running small stalls inside the venue, and there will be an optional gold coin donation on entry to help kick-off fund-raising for next year.

Did we mention it’s free?

When and where?

PakEX will be running our free community event (did we mention that already?) at the Outlook Centre in Pakenham on Saturday the 14th of March 2020. Doors open at 10am with most demonstrations running until approximately 4pm. But as the demos’ wind up, that doesn’t mean the fun stops! We will continue to run full games throughout the evening, so during the day you can arrange a game for later, and then immerse yourself in the full experience after dark.
