Origins 2018 – Minis!

While not hugely prominent, there’s no shortage of minis-based gaming ~

GrogHeads Newsdesk, 27 June 2018

Minis games are spread across 2 different gaming halls, and you can always find other minis tucked away in other gaming, too (like OGRE!).  Some of the minis displays in the exhibit hall can be borderline breathtaking.

Origins 2018 – My First Time Running an Event at Origins

A behind-the-scenes look at a GM for an RPG event ~

Avery Abernethy, 26 June 2018

Although I’ve run a Cons before going all the way back to 1983, I’ve not run at Origins.  My experience was quite favorable.


Rogue Cthulhu

My event ran under the Rogue Cthulhu group.  Rogue is quite strict on whom and what they allow to be run under their logo.

They must see you as a player before they will let you run an event.  The leaders of the group also review the materials before you run to maintain a certain level of quality control.  Rogue does not run anything that has been published previously, although they will run one or two new, unreleased scenarios by Chaosium every year.

There’s no shortage of gameplay at Origins, across the show.  There’s some great wargaming going out outside of the GrogHeads area.

If you can’t find a game you want to play at Origins, you’re just not trying hard enough.  Our wargaming we highlighted in an earlier article, but here’s plenty of other games to check out – including a few wacky, home-brew, and off-the-wall ones – and we’ve still got more to come.

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.
