Origins 2024 Countdown! All The Other Wargaming Events

Armchair Dragoons PAO, 29 May 2024

There are a ton of wargaming events at Origins that are not sponsored by the Armchair Dragoons, especially miniatures games.  There are a variety of board wargames, NDSMG/LARPs, home-brewed games, and fanciful alt-histories.  This listing obviously does not include pickup games, wargames scheduled between friends to link up in the board room, or folks that just grabbed a random table to play (or playtest) something.  Nevertheless, there’s a LOT of wargaming here.

A few caveats – this is filtered through a couple of lenses, including the “wargame” category, the “history” category, and then also filtering the board game / minis game categories, and weeding out the things that don’t apply.  There’s also some things that did fit those categories that we still screened out – like someone submitting King of New York as a “wargame”.

  • Note that we also screened out all of the BattleTech events not because we don’t love them, but because they’d’ve overwhelmed the overall listings
  • Default sort is by start time, but the table can be sorted on any column header
  • Finally, any misspellllings in these listings were in the original submissions, like the dude who left the “s” out of “Austerlitz”
  • There’s almost 300 lines here, so you’ll need to flip through several pages of listings.

Thank you for visiting The Armchair Dragoons and mounting up with the Regiment of Strategy Gaming.
You can find our regiment’s social media on MastodonBlueSky, Facebook, TwXtter, YouTube, and even Threads, if we could ever get an auto-post to it.
(We have an Instagram page and it’s really just a placeholder & redirect to our articles.)
You can support The Armchair Dragoons through our Patreon, also, and find us at a variety of conventions and other events.
Feel free to talk back to us either in our discussion forum, or in the comments below.


At the Origins Game Fair, so vast,
Wargaming enthusiasts amassed,
With armies in sight,
They prepared for the fight,
And victory was theirs at last.
