Armchair Dragoons PAO, 23 May 2022
Registration for Origins 2022 is ongoing, and there are still seats in plenty of wargaming events, so check out our consolidated listings and get registered! Meanwhile, as you’re planning your loops around the vendor hall, we’ve tried to map out the key locations for you.
As wargamers are planning their assault on the exhibit call, here’s what we’ve identified broadly as the ‘wargame’ vendors (and wargame-adjacent ones) at Origins Game Fair, 8-12 June 2022 in Columbus, Ohio.
The usual caveats:
- Not all of these folks are wargame-specific, but many have wargame-related material, too.
- There are going to be some retailers selling wargames (especially more casual ones) alongside a lot of non-wargame content, but we don’t have any good way of ID’ing those from the vendor hall listing. Feel free to drop us a line or a comment if there’s someone we need to add.
- The general rule we’re sticking with is largely “if we’d include them in Tuesday Newsday, then we include them here, too”
- See the map below for the vendors in the table, highlighted in light blue
|Ares Games SRL||712|
|Black Oak Workshop||1008|
|Carolina Game Tables||913|
|Catastrophe Games (including Blue Panther, who will also be rep'ing Hollandspiele & White Dog Games)||1235|
|Free League Publishing||1044|
|Sea Dog Games Studios||822|
|The Dietz Foundation||856|
|The Game Crafter||344|
|TTCombat / Hawk Wargames||1210|
The game hall map has us labeled as “War Gamers” again, but we’re trying to at least get credit for who we are on the map!It’s been updated! For the first time since we started this whole program back in 2014, the Wargaming HQ has our name on it and not just “War Gamers”! Yes, we’re as shocked as you are. The full map is on the Origins site here.
