PAX East Returns in 2022, Mandates Vaccination: From a press release sent to CHG: “PAX East 2022 returns to the Boston Convention Center from Thursday April 21, 2022, to Sunday, April 24, 2022. Badges will soon go on sale for the long-awaited return of the East Coast’s largest gaming event.

After moving 2021’s show online for the health and safety of the community, entry to PAX East 2022 will require a completed vaccination series and mandatory face coverings for all in the venue. Proof of vaccination will be required for all PAX events in the foreseeable future.”

Discussion of the Week

Why GMing Isn’t More Popular: From Reddit, first r/dndnext and then r/rpg, a good thread has cropped talking about both why GMing traditional games can be difficult and why gamers are often disincentivized from doing so. While the conversation hits on a lot of GMing topics, one of the strong undercurrents of suggestion is to play games other than D&D 5e, which we wholeheartedly agree with.
