Armchair Dragoons Public Affairs Office, 16 August 2021
With the cancellation of last summer’s in-person conventions, including Origins Game Fair, the wargaming community has spent a year adapting to a new online world. This includes The Armchair Dragoons, who have held 3 virtual game conventions, plus co-sponsored a professional wargaming conference, all online, over the past 13 months.
However, in-person game conventions are now making a comeback, and the Armchair Dragoons are currently planning to re-establish the Wargame HQ at Origins Game Fair this year, even with a limited slate of offerings.
Thanks to both the pandemic, and the change in schedule for when Origins is being held this year, the Dragoons are operating on a skeleton crew, but are still planning to provide a variety of games over the main 3 gaming days of the convention (let’s face it, no one shows up for events on Sunday).
The current plan for wargaming at Origins is as follows
- Tank Duel by GMT
- Age of Dogfights by Forsage
- Commands & Colors: Napoleonics by GMT
- Tank on Tank by Lock ‘n Load Publishing
- Second World War at Sea by Avalanche Press
- A Distant Plain by GMT (as a Team COIN game)
On the schedule, we are currently projecting the following[table “10” not found /]
What we don’t have this year are any planned Origins War College talks, as we’re running short of people to help with those presentations.
As always, we will have a variety of prize support, as well as pick-up games, live broadcasts, and occasional interview or report from the floor, and the always-nutty prize raffle at the end for whatever’s left.
More information, including pre-registration, can be found on the Origins Game Fair website.
See you at the show!
