290 – PAX East 2022 – The Family Gamers Podcast

PAX East
PAX East
Antonov AN-225

This week we kick back and talk about what we saw at PAX East 2022! It’s the first time the gaming convention is back in Boston after the pandemic cancelled the last two events and it was a ton of fun!

290 Fact – Long time listeners of The Family Gamers MIGHT remember that on episode 225, my fact was talking about the Antonov An-225. It’s the biggest plane in the world, with a wingspan of 290 feet.
