Origins Game Fair is this coming up weekend in Columbus, Ohio. The dates are from June 12-16 and it takes place in downtown at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. This is a local con for me. Sometimes I only make it out for a day or two and other years I make it out for the whole convention.
This year is a year I will be spending a lot of time there. I have a multitude of folks from some of the online gaming campaigns I enjoyed this year on G+ coming into town for the con. There are literally people arriving from the north, south, east, and west to all meetup face-to-face for some gaming fun this year!
I was going to prep some Swords & Wizardry and run some of that system, but I had some last minute real life stuff pop up and I ended up defaulting back to Dungeon Crawl Classics for the games I am prepping. I will be running The Tower Out of Time at least once. I am also planning to run The Waystation from Purple Duck Games. I will likely read through Portal Under the Stars for a quick funnel to run for those that have not played it or read it too closely from DCC RPG rulebook.
I have access to The Tower Out of Time as part of the DCC RPG World Tour. Goodman Games has a system setup where judges that run a certain number of games can earn themselves some pretty cool swag. Judges for these events also get some swag to hand out at their tables as well. The box of player swag arrived late last week, so I am all set for Origins!
I still have a few more things to prep before the show is upon us and I am running out of time! The blog will likely be a little quiet towards the latter part of the week.
If you are interested in crossing paths while at Origins, be sure to follow my Twitter handle. I find Twitter a great tool for impromptu meetups at cons. I will also announce any last minute games I run (likely of the DCC RPG variety as noted above).
