Go Home With ASTRO Gear


PAX East attendees have the opportunity to test out the latest games, ASTRO products, and perhaps even win some gear. There is always a chance for attendees to win ASTRO gear at our booth, but this year there are chances all over PAX. The ASTRO Crew is going to #TagUp PAX East and give fans a chance to win in the process. We’re super excited to announce the #TagUp scavenger hunt with all the ASTRO Partners at PAX EAST! ASTRO has given each of our partners speaker tags to hide in their booth for you to find! Follow the Twitter hashtags “#PAXSTRO #TagUp” before & during the event to discover more details.

If you spy an ASTRO branded speaker tag anywhere other than a headset, you should pick it up and turn it over. If there is a code on the back bring it to the ASTRO booth and redeem it for a prize! Each ASTRO booth partner will have 9 speaker tags to hide over the 3 day weekend, but when and where is the mystery. ASTRO will also be hiding speaker tags in restaurants, hotel lobbies, outside, and in our booth so keep an eye out wherever you go. Be sure to stop by all our partner booths, play some games and keep an eye out for your chance to win the #PAXSTRO #TagUp Scavenger Hunt!

Some of the prizes will include:

If you find a Grand Prize speaker tag, be sure to leave your contact info with our booth representatives as we will be announcing the headset sweepstakes winners post-PAX. *If you are randomly chosen to win the Neon A40, we will contact you and ship the headset right to your door step!

Several of the #TagUp speaker tags are actually redeemable for admission to an extra special Disney event Sunday at 2pm. Disney & Harmonix have teamed up with Destructoid and ASTRO Gaming to give fans the opportunity to try the upcoming game Fantasia Music Evolved, with a chance to win ASTRO A50 Wireless headsets!
