Board game maker Gloomhaven will showcase a “surprise new title” at PAX

A “surprise new title set in the Gloomhaven universe” is coming soon, and it’s going to be revealed and first performed at PAX Unplugged on December 2. According to a Nov. 8 PAX announcement, Isaac Childres, designer of the massive board game, will lead the panel.

The Gloomhaven: Announcement and Live Game Experience panel will take place at 1:00 p.m. EST / 6:00 p.m. GMT. Childres will be joined by “a ragtag group of mercenaries” – also known as PAX co-founder Jerry Holkins, gaming journalist and streamer Tanya DePass, Cephalofair cosplayer Monica Paprocki, Roll20 community manager Danny Quach and designer of Cephalofair Alexander JL Theoharis.

PAX Unplugged is a tabletop gaming convention held in the American city of Philadelphia. The Gloomhaven reveal panel will last an hour, and the PAX website says it will take place in the venue’s main theater.

No information has been revealed about the as yet unannounced Gloomhaven game. However, many of the panelists are heavily involved in the world of tabletop RPGs – DePass has starred in several D&D games hosted by Wizards of the Coast, and Quach has both written and live-streamed TTRPGs in the past. An official Gloomhaven RPG might just be on the cards.
