PAX East 2019: Handheld Tournaments (Thursday)

Welcome to PAX, friends! 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.

Sign-ups for handheld tournaments begin at 10am today. 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.

  • 12:00am-2:00pm – ARMS (Switch)
  • 2:30pm-4:00pm – Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call (3DS)
  • 4:30pm-6:30pm – Dragon Ball FighterZ (Switch)
  • 7:30pm-9:00pm – Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon (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.

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
