Rage2017

For many years, rAge expo has been a staple event on my social calendar. As soon as I know the dates, I clear that weekend, apply for leave and mentally prepare myself for the coming excitement. Spending a weekend in the TicketPro Dome, surrounded by the sights (and smells) of other geeks and gamers is a thrilling experience. Okay, fine, maybe not the smell part, but everything else is awesome!

This year, rAge is celebrating 15 years as South Africa’s annual video gaming, computer, technology and geek culture exhibition. In addition to cosplay, gadgets, tabletop games and enough merch to bankrupt you several times over, the main attraction is, of course, the games. LANs, esports, hardware, playable demos, overclocking and probably much, much more.

Here are all the important details:
