Counting Down to Origins 2022 ~ Consolidated Wargaming Events!

Armchair Dragoons PAO, 20 May 2022

Registration for Origins 2022 is almost upon us, and to help out our fellow wargamers, we’ve pulled an event extract of wargaming, and wargame-related, events beyond just ours.

To help wargamers planning their schedules, here’s what we’ve identified broadly as the ‘wargame’ events at Origins Game Fair, 8-12 June 2022 in Columbus, Ohio.

A few caveats:

  • THIS IS NOT EVERYTHING. It’s not even everything from our team. Tabletop.events is slow updating the downloadable version of the events. This might actually be everything now, as this extract was pulled based on the events that were released for registration.
  • There are multiple pages to this table!
  • These were tagged as “Wargame” or “War College” or were tagged as “Historical” and then we filtered out the RPGs.  There are a few in here that are flagged as “Sci-Fi” or “Strategy” but are still wargame-related, as you’ll see, and then we added the current NSDM events and some others that looked wargame-connected.  When in doubt, we made some judgment calls, but usually to screen in something that might not be a full-fledged ‘wargame’ rather than screen something out that might be of interest.
  • We did not provide room locations as many of these are changing, including ours!  So do not get locked into the location listed on the Origins registration site, as there are some definite changes to be made.
  • Event numbers are fixed / good to go.  Those should not be changing at all
  • We did not include descriptions because that would make this table way too big
  • The “category” column is an amalgam of several columns in the Origins event spreadsheet, which for some reason has multiple “sub category” headers (some with a hyphen, some without), plus an additional “category” column. So not everything in that column will be found in the “category” header on the Origins event listing.
  • We did not put the Battletech events in here because that would’ve doubled the size of the table.

As we’d noted previously, this table does not include any events we plan to run “off the books” that were organized after the submission deadline was passed.  Additionally, this does not include the inevitable ‘pick-up’ games of ASL or M’44 or other popular wargames that’ll get organized in the Board Room as people check out those games to play.
