It is Saskatchewan’s longest running gaming expo and fundraiser and it’s happening in Moose Jaw on July 12-14, 2019.
GAX (GAmer’s eXpo) has been a semi-annual event hosted by the Moose Jaw Gamers Inc. (MJGA) since 2010 and this year’s event features all aspects of gaming from Role Playing games(RPG's) like Dungeons & Dragons and others, to card games and board games, classic and modern consoles, and PC games. Including the ONLY National SETTLERS OF CATAN Qualifier in the province.
Attendance has continued to grow year after year. With record attendance at last years GAX events, organizers are hoping this year’s expo will be an even bigger success at our NEW location inside the Moose Jae Cultural Centre.
Attendees to GAX can expect 3 days of excitement featuring LAN gaming, popular and obscure board and card games, RPGs run by veteran Game Masters, classic and modern console games on projection screens involving 1-8 players. Plus, one of the fastest growing trends in gaming will be showcased with top E-sport games and tournaments, and highly ranked E-Sport Gamers in attendance.
Organizers with MJGA say the event boasts vendor booths, door prizes, a Virtual Reality test area, and includes a free pizza party Saturday night for all in attendance. It is definitely a visitor friendly, relaxed, and supervised environment suitable for all ages.
With the MJGA being a Non-Profit Charity, a large portion of the event proceeds in past years has benefited local childrens charities such as, Literacy programs at both school divisions, Hunger In Moose Jaw, Moose Jaw Paediatric Ward, Children’s Wish Foundation, and the Saskatchewan Paediatric Auditory Rehab Centre, to name a few. MJGA was also recently nominated, for a second time, for an MJBEX award. This year we will be donating to the Moose Jaw District Food Banks NEW PROGRAM “Mighty Munchies”, providing snacks for school kids to get through the day.
MJGA Organizers are encouraging attendees to bring their board games, card games, gaming consoles and computers from home to enhance the event. There are also going to be competitive console tournaments with prizes. We have two tournaments scheduled thus far, with Mario Kart & Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
Console fans can expect everything from Classic Atari games, Sega, Nintendo and more including a Wii-U featured on a projector for large groups to play. Meanwhile, other gamers can expect everything from traditional and non traditional card games, board games and role playing games like Dungeon’s & Dragons with plenty of table space from everyone.
This year’s GAX will be hosted at the Moose Jaw Cultural Center, 217 Main St N, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan July 12-14, 2019. LAN and PC gaming seats are $25 if purchased by June 28th, 2019 or $30 at the door.
