Great recount of one of the highlights of PAX. Each time I’ve been to PAX East (’10, ’11 and ’13), the final round of the Omegathon was extremely enjoyable. Being part of the crowd for the reveal, the twists and turns during the event, and ultimately, the celebration, was enthralling. (Challenges on 5 classic games in a row, ending with Contra, and giant Jenga). Giant Jenga was particularly enjoyable. It might sound silly, but when the tower wobbled, the tension was palpable.
If you go to PAX, you have to go see the Omegathon.
