Origins 2023 ~ The Wargame HQ With The Armchair Dragoons

Armchair Dragoons PAO, 10 April 2023

It’s taken some time, but our events are finally loaded into the Origins 2023 event system, where you can register for them once ticketing opens up in a few weeks.

Origins Game Fair is 21-25 June and we’ll have plenty of coverage leading up to, and at, the convention

This is the sortable grid for our events.  Note that there are 3 Origins War College talks included in this grid, since it’s our people giving those talks1.  We’ll have the rest of the Origins War College events with the consolidated wargaming event grid coming in a few weeks.

Note that there are over 60 events in the grid, so you will have to page through it a few times, but it is also sortable by event title, day, and publisher, as well.

So why do we list all of our events as “Armchair Dragoons Presents: ___” ?

Two reasons:  First, in the era before they had “hosting club or organization” as an optional field in event description, it was the only way to find our stuff.  Second, even with that field, sorting by title will always show our events as a unified block, and signal to anyone looking through the grid that wargaming is definitely here and not going away from Origins any time soon.

Stay tuned for our usual barrage of Origins coverage over the next few weeks as we approach the convention, with event extracts of all the other wargame / wargame-adjacent events that aren’t ours, plus an extract of the vendors of interest, and previews of our events.  At the show, we’ll have multiple photo galleries, plus several reports from the convention about what’s going on.  We’re going to try to broadcast live a few times while we’re there, too.
