From excitement about trailers to excitement about box art and rulebooks
So E3 is winding down. My Video Game stuff isn’t stopping, but it is slowing to a trickle as I take in more of the stuff I am excited about.
But while the public spectacle side of E3 is winding down, over in Columbus Ohio the Origins Game Fair is just warming up!
The Game Manufacturers Association (GAMA) has been hosting Origins since 1975, and is five days of gaming. And not just Board Gaming – if it involves a table, someone is at Origins to represent! RPG’s, Miniatures games, Table Wargaming, even LARPers are there!
There is also the Origin Award to look forward to. These are awarded annually for contributions to gaming over the previous year and will be announced Sunday (Australian Time). While the Origins awards do not have the same buzz around the world as the Spiel Des Jahres, these nominees and winners are no less important for their contributions to gaming.
But that’s enough for today – tonight I will be eagerly combing through as much Origins news as I can, and I will start sharing my thoughts tomorrow.
