2018 Winter GAX - Moose Jaw
« on: January 08, 2018, 09:45:45 PM »
SASKATCHEWAN’S LARGEST & LONGEST RUNNING GAMING EXPO RETURNING TO MOOSE JAW

It’s Saskatchewan’s largest and longest running gaming expo and it’s returning to Moose Jaw on February 2nd-4th, 2018.

GAX (GAmer's eXpo) has been an a semi-annual event hosted by the Moose Jaw Gamers Association (MJGA) since 2010 and this year’s event features all aspects of gaming from computer, classic and modern consoles, card games and board games.

Attendance has continued to grow year after year and after record attendance at last years GAX event, organizers are hoping this year’s expo will be an even bigger success.

Attendees to GAX can expect 3 days of excitement featuring LAN gaming, popular and obscure board and card games, classic and modern console games on projection screens involving games for 1-8 players.  Plus, one of the fastest growing trends in gaming will be showcased with top E-sport games and highly ranked E-Sport Gamers in attendance.

Organizers with MJGA say the event boasts both competitive and non-competitive divisions with door prizes, is supervised and includes a pizza party Saturday night so it’s definitely a visitor friendly, relaxed environment suitable for all ages.

With the MJGA being a not-for-profit organization, a portion of the event proceeds in past years has benefited the Moose Jaw Paediatric Ward, Children’s Wish Foundation, and the Saskatchewan Paediatric Auditory Rehab Centre, to name a few.

MJGA Organizers are encouraging attendees to bring their board games, card games, gaming consoles and computers from home to enhance the event even more with the possibility of tournaments and prizes.

Console fans can expect everything from Classic Atari games, Sega, Nintendo and more including a Wii-U featured on a projector for large groups to play.

Meanwhile, other gamers can expect everything from traditional and non traditional card games, board games and role playing games like Dungeon’s & Dragons with plenty of table space from everyone.

This year’s GAX will be hosted at the St. Joseph’s Church Basement Hall, 1064 3rd Ave NW in Moose Jaw on Feb 2nd-4th, 2018.  LAN and PC gaming seats are $25 if purchased by Jan 15th, 2018 or $30 at the door.  General admission for non-LAN gamers is just $15 and players under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Well I sure am looking forward to going to this winter's GAX again.  I'm even lending a room in my house to a friend from Alberta coming back just to attend this (he's a video gamer, but I'm working on fixing that).

I saw on a Facebook post that it's a new guy running the board game side.  Do you know if he has anything new or different planned compared to previous GAX events?
