thousands of fans waited in line for hours to witness heroic
storytelling from some of the most entertaining D&D players in the
world. This year, rather than fans being turned away, they are able to
experience PAX West through a VIP and up-close cinema experience.

“D&D fans are not going to want to miss this special event. Watching the

experience a part of that magic, laughing and hanging out with their
friends as they watch the antics of Acquisitions Inc. on a big screen.
That’s what D&D is all about.”
