Origins 2018 – Gameplay Gallery I

CentCom2018 SPLASH gameplay

The game’s the thing… ~

GrogHeads Newsdesk, 21 June 2018

There was a wide variety of gaming going on all over Origins, and we’ve already focused on our wargaming corner of the world in an earlier article.  What we’ve got here are a couple of galleries of different games on tables, with much more from the gaming halls to come soon.

First up, author & game designer Larry Bond leading a naval minis wargame over Main Gaming Hall A.

Origins 2018 – Scenes from the GrogHeads Central Command

For the fifth year in a row ~

For our fifth year at Origins (and our fifth straight year of not having our name right in the site book!) the GrogHeads crew set up our Central Command for wargaming at Origins.  Located over the C-Hall, one of the two gaming halls, we were a little further back from the front doors than in years past, but still hard to miss near the CABS Board Room.

Interestingly enough, we were probably one of the 4- or 5-most-filmed booths at Origins, mainly because we were in the background of most of the video the guys posted from The Dice Tower, who were right across the aisle from us.  We were in hailing distance of Academy Games’ playing area, and wedged in between the minis paint-&-take, and the Star Realms deckbuilder.  Most importantly, we had our own little chunk of concrete for gaming, and we made the most of it.

Origins 2018 – A Floor Report

What’s Happening on the Ground at #Origins2018? ~

Brant Guillory, 16 June 2018

What?  A quiet moment to write?  Naaaaaaah….

Actually, yes.  Origins weekend is usually the same weekend as the annual Columbus Pride Parade, so if you want a parking space that’s any closer than the airport, you need to get here early – and that means 0730 for me, with Bayonet Jr in tow.  It also means, that since our first ‘thing’ today (family photo with the Grogs!) isn’t until 0900, there’s time to write.

What’s been going on?  If you follow us on either Twitter or Facebook, you’ve had the chance to see plenty of live video and updates from the show.  Those are giving a look at what’s happening, but only superficially.  Here’s the detail of what’s going on.

The GrogHeads Central Command was so jumping we had a hard time finding a break to load pictures.
