Hotel block is live, though not openly advertised yet.

There's already people calling the Hilton and referencing "Origins 2018" and getting the $149 rate, which is stupid cheap.  But those are going to go very fast, so call ASAP

(614) 384-8600

I just tried, and the room block is not open yet.

after I posted that, GAMA put some info out thru Facebook about the block opening next week.  So I think they got wind of the Hilton booking people early, and shut it down.  Sorry :(

Well, that sort of sucked.  I ended up getting a room in the Marriott Courtyard because my first 3 choices were booked.

Booked a room at the Hyatt for $149.00/night for the entire convention. You know, in case someone wants me to run Fields of Despair for Grogheads.  :-"   :P

Yeah, Brant.  How do you turn down free labor?!  That volunteers for enforced servitude, no less!
Come inside and vote on the latest music bracket!  Going to attempt to come up with one song to rule them all from 1960 to 1999.  Next up:

Is Barth's team at work planning on ripping a hole in the T-S continuum that weekend and transporting their town back to 1600's Germany?
