Someone has to click on your articles

I've heard that his demonstratives and possessive determiners are a bit dodgy as well.

Thanks, Brant for the info.  I found the geeklist and it does look like a lot of gaming is going to happen in the board room, so I guess I'll pick that up as well.  I went to Origins in 2016 as a booth monkey, but I was able to spend some evening participating in the grogheads events.  I'm definitely looking forward to being able to explore games that are hard for me to get to the table. 

I'm bringing my (much) younger brother this year and he's really into 40k.  I saw a few 40k events on the schedule, but not much else.  Does anyone know how much GW / 40k presence there is at Origins?

There's not a ton, honestly.  There's no official GW presence as a vendor, so the exhibit hall sales are limited to third-party vendors who are more interested in just moving product than sponsoring organized play or anything similar.


There's some groups that'll set up in the minis area, but that's probably what you already found on the event grid.

I've spoken with Paul (events manager) several times over the past 2 weeks, and he's got our events and everything looks fine, but he's waiting for a couple of other updates to come in and load the all at once into an updated event grid, rather than piecemeal the updates.  I'll post the full event list once I get it confirmed that we're in there

So I guess my "where are all the 'Armchair Dragoons Presents..." events (looking at the spreadsheet now available at http://originsgamefair.com/events/) ...

I usually try to plan my week from this so I have a plan of attack when the game event registration opens up.  Which I guess  for this year is next Saturday (I didn't see a time)

Not quite as critical as GENCON ... but popular events fill up fast (1st hour or so of online registration being made avallable in some cases)

So, I am looking forward to your post of the ADP events before then if able.  Thanks.

Can you PM me my time slots? I want to compare them to the event list so I can try to figure out if there is anything else I want to sign up for.

Any word on when the schedule will get updated?  Or is it possible to post a schedule here?

Let me see what I can do today when I get home.  I can probably get some form of the schedule up here

that spreadsheet hasn't been updated in 2 weeks and still doesn't have our stuff on it.

Registration supposedly opens on May 4 - 9 days away.  But the event schedule with the actual event numbers has not been posted.

Seems like Origins is having their normal level of "organization."

Glad those Executive Director changes have cleared up the problems!

I actually don't really like games.
