PAX East 2011 D&D Events

From the official PAX East website:

PAX East is a three-day game festival for tabletop, videogame, and PC gamers. We call it a festival because in addition to dedicated tournaments and freeplay areas we've got nerdcore concerts, panel discussions, and an exhibitor hall filled with booths displaying the latest from top game publishers and developers.

PAX East takes place in Boston, March 11-13, 2011 -- and Wizards of the Coast will be there with great D&D events! Check out the D&D highlights below. If you’d like to DM some games at the show, contact Willi Burger, our D&D organizer to get set up. Free badges and other goodies await for those willing to help! For more information on the show itself, head to the official PAX East website to get the details.
