Our Dice go to great authors!

4 June, 2012 (22:37) | Rich, ShowUsYourDice | By: rdowney

So I am walking through Origins’ dealer hall and who do I see at the back of the room but Timothy Zahn.  He is a great author and has done a ton of Star Wars books.

Also thankfully he is a good sport, and I asked for a picture with our dice.  But not of him, just his badge!   Thanks Mr. Zahn, wherever you are!

And Mr. Zahn gets a die!

Well folks it is all over.  Wow!  What a great, wonderful, spectacular time!   We gamed and gamed some more!  We previewed our new dice from Chessex, which were also Coupon dice!  Awesome, and thanks so much to the folks at for that little gift.    Also, some of the members were able to see both Wil Wheaton and Felisha Day and they walked away with some custom dice, and I believe Felisha got a coupon die!  Sorry Wil, we ran out!

From the feedback, I personally am very humbled.  Everyone had a great time.  I got some great feedback on some games, and like every year got to see my friends, Matt, Paul, Todd, Henry, and that Really Great Guy (you know who you are, as you sir have that on your business card!)

We changed up the feedback sheets this year, and here is what I collected for games people would like to see.  Realize that I am only one of our RPG DM’s.  I know that Trish and Mark had other items they had been looking to play.  The big winner here was Dresden Files!  Everyone wants to play it!  My friend Matt and I were the only two at the whole show so I know people are look for it.   So anyway below is my list!

GI Joe 1
Matrix 1
Doctor Who 2
Dresden Files 11

Origins events

23 May, 2012 (11:08) | Conventions, Origins | By: elindsay

Event reg for origins is now closed. We sold out 43 of our 97 events.

But don’t fear! If you’re interested in one of our rpgs, and that rpg is listed for 5 seats, you may still be in luck. Our 5 seat rpgs are designed to seat 6. So show up early with your generic tickets.

And if you’re looking for something to do Saturday night show up to our gameshow. Sure to be a good time for all.

See y’all at origins next week!
