PAX East 2024 Daily Schedule

Has it really been an entire year since this chicken skipped around the PAX East expo hall? We can’t believe it, but PAX East 2024 is almost here, so it’s time to share all the cool stuff we have planned for the weekend!

From March 21-24, you can find us at Booth #16061 from 10:00am-6:00pm daily! Come by for our stellar arcade cabs and stay for our silly chicken dances. If that’s not enough, then perhaps some friendly yet chaotic competition will change your mind? No? Purrrhaps a Cat Guard photo contest will do the trick…

Buckle Your PAX Cat Guard Photo Contest

Our feline security detail has been pretty bored these past few years, and we want to fix that. This little (big?) fellow is traveling all the way to Boston from California just to take silly photos with you!

BUT WAIT, there’s more! You could win a $100 e-gift card to our online store AND Cat Guard piggy bank by entering our social media photo contest! Here’s the intel:

  • Take a picture with our Cat Guard any day of the show
  • Post your photo on Instagram or Twitter (*cough* X) with the hashtag #BuckleYourPAX
  • A winner will be announced each day on our social media
  • All winners will receive their e-gift card after PAX concludes

Don’t have social media? You can still enter for a chance to win a $100 e-gift card by signing up for our mailing list at the show!

Come get a free chicken scarf!

It’s pretty chilly in Boston, and we have an excess amount of feathery chicken scarves ready for you. Swing on by the booth at 11AM any day of the show if you’d like one, while supplies last!

Daily Competitions

We’ll also be hosting a rotating competition on one of our arcade cabs from 3:00-4:00pm daily! Here’s the intel for each show day:

Thursday: Back Off Barbarian

“Back Off, Barbarian!” That’s what you’ll be saying to your friends, family, and random strangers named Barb from the show floor as you secretly wish for their demise (only in this casual competition, of course).

Outwit, outplay, and OUTLAST your foes to win the GRAND PRIZE of a handcrafted Back Off Barbarian trophy, NEW Necromancer tiki mug, and Necromancer socks!

Friday: BattleBlock Theater

Next up is a BattleBlock Theater 2v2 Ball Game tournament! To enter, you’ll need to form a duo and sign-up at our booth sometime between 10am-1pm on Friday. Next, just show up at 3:00pm and be available to compete in the hour-long time block.

The winning team will walk away with a handcrafted BattleBlock Theater trophy, Cat Guard piggy bank, and comfy Behemoth socks. Yahoo!

Saturday: Alien Hominid Invasion

I really like the word extravaganza, so it’s time for another Alien Hominid Invasion BONUS EXTRAVAGANZA (co-op edition!). 

To enter, grab a pal and clear our Invasion bonus level as quickly as possible! All participants will get a small prize, but only one duo will win the grand prize of a handcrafted Alien Hominid trophy, Youtooz figurine, and socks!

Sunday: Can YOU Beat THE Behemoth Chicken?

Well, can you?

Show up at 3pm on Sunday to see if you can beat a dev in a chicken suit at their own game. That’s all. We have no other context to share for this competition. See you at the show!

PAX East 2024 Gift Shop Menu

The chicken has been in the KITCHEN cooking up some new merch and carefully curating this year’s PAX East gift shop! Here’s a quick preview of what you can find at Booth #16061 during the show:

Some highlights include comfy Castle Crashers socks (always), new Alien Hominid Invasion gear, A NECROMANCER TIKI MUG, and our most fashionable big chicken apparel yet. Speaking of big chickens..

Presenting… your PAX East 2024 exclusive t-shirt and hoodie design!

Yup, we have muscle chicken tees and hoodies aplenty. Wait, you’re just looking for muscles? We’re fresh out of those.


Because even villainous overlords crave a sugary drink from time to time. For those who can’t make it, tiki mugs will be available in our online store later this year!


We only brought the Castle Crashers donut box to last year’s PAX West, so it’s only fair that we share the love with the East Coast, right? RIGHT?

Well PAX East attendees, have we got a special treat for you! You, too, can get your very own donut box filled with Castle Crashers physical edition for Nintendo Switch, a Blacksmith plushie, and more goodies. The first 100 purchases will also receive a limited edition Castle Crashers medallion! Donuts not included (our sincerest apologies).

… and lots of aliens!

Our Alien Hominid Invasion button-ups and bucket hats are ready to debut in Boston! We can’t wait to skip through the PAX East expo hall wearing our alien horde fits. What better way is there to spread an alien invasion?

FREE gifts with each purchase include a collectible postcard (rotating daily in our shop) and shiny Alien Hominid bag (pictured above).

We have one last surprise — FREE chicken scarves!

It’s pretty chilly in Boston, and we have an excess amount of feathery chicken scarves ready for you. Swing on by the booth at 11AM any day of the show if you’d like one, while supplies last!

Aaaand that’s all for this year’s gift shop preview. Stay tuned for information coming soon about our in-booth daily events, and see you soon! BAAAAAWK.
