PAX West 2016: Handheld Tournaments (Friday)

Welcome to PAX! There’s just something about being in a huge convention center with thousands of your geek friends that makes competing in a tournament—being sociable with strangers!—actually appealing. All handheld tournaments will be held at Handheld HQ on the North Galleria Level 2. PAX vets, yes—this is the same spot as in previous years.

Sign-ups for handheld tournaments begin at 10am on the morning of each tournament day. It’s first come, first served, but you’re always welcome to head over even if you’re not competing! Remember that Handheld HQ has bean bags where you can take a load off and relax, and there are often charging stations available and game checkouts to try out some new-to-you titles!

Reminder that you must bring your own devices and games to participate in the handheld tournaments.

  • 3pm-5pm – Mario Kart 7 (3DS)
  • 9pm-11pm – Dragonball Z: Extreme Butoden (3DS)

It’s also worth checking at the handheld desk to see if anyone will be hosting their own unofficial tourneys—sometimes there’s a crowd that wants to play together and has open lists going.

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
