Battleground Games & Hobbies will be at this weekend’s PAX East convention in Boston at the Boston Convention Center Friday, March 6th thru Sunday, March 8th. Please be sure to stop by and visit our amazing booth (#C902) in the Tabletop Hall and try out some fantastic  FREE game demo’s! And who knows, perhaps demo participants may even receive a special reward for demoing a game with us.


Plus, this year, we’re featuring all kinds of amazing board games in stock; no one carries as deep an inventory at PAX East as Battleground Games & Hobbies! However, in the event we sell out of an item – no problem! We’ll special order it for you at the show and have it shipped directly to your home.  This is a new feature for this year’s show and one we’re really excited about. Please see show staff for details about having a game shipped directly to your house!


Need a little extra cash for the show? Have a lot of cards you wish to trade in? We will be buying Magic the Gathering single cards at this year’s PAX East! Turn those unwanted cards into cash – all weekend long!


Finally, our retail stores will have amended hours during PAX East, as follows:


Abington 4:00pm – 12:00am
Plainville 4:00pm – 12:00am

Abington 2:00pm – 11:00pm
Plainville 2:00pm – 11:00pm

Abington 11:00am – 7:00pm
Plainville 11:00am – 7:00pm


Regularly scheduled events, such as Friday Night Magic (FNM) will be run as normal.


Please stay tuned to our Facebook, TwitterInstagram and Tumblr all weekend long for all kinds of wild and crazy pictures and updates from the show. And don’t forget, please make sure to stop by our booth #C902 in the Tabletop Hall and say hello!


We look forward to seeing you all there! And most of all – HAVE FUN!
