Just a heads-up, you're going to want to book hotels early.  Stuff fills up quick.  For the guys working the show, there are some rooms set aside for volunteers (still have to pay for them, just make sure they get one), but the rest of y'all are going to want to book early...

If you want to split a hotel with someone, post about it here and y'all can make your own arrangements.

I think I'm going to Gencon instead.  Origins has always seemed to have a heavy focus on boardgames - and I would prefer RPGs.  Let me know if I'm mistaken.

DragonCon got so massive that it does not appeal any longer - even though Atlanta is a 2 hour drive away.

There's a LOT of RPGs to play at Origins.  The Rogue Judges guys always put on a great show, and most of the banquet rooms on the 2nd floor of the hotel are packed with organized / scheduled RPG events

Can you register in advance for a spot in a game, or is it show up and hope for the best?

nope - you register in advance and get tickets for the specific events when you pick up your badge.  You turn in your tickets at the event.  One of the GM's responsibilities is to collect those tickets and turn them into the area coordinators after the event.

Depending on how work shakes out I'm planning on being there this year.
PanzersEast: Have to think to myself.... will I play the first one by the Winter Sale?  Probably not, then I should remove Dragonfall
PanzersEast: but that is thinking too logically.... and Steam Sales are about ignoring Logic

Tomorrow I pick my vacation for the year.  I plan to take the week after Origins off.  The reason is, I am hoping to be able to get Friday the 17th off to drive up.  Attend Origins Saturday and Sunday (and help with clean up and break down) and then stick around Columbus until June 21.  Peter Gabriel and Sting are kicking off a tour that night and I'd like to go to the show.  Anybody want to join me?  In any event, if I go, I'd be willing to share a room with someone.

Dumb question:  Do most/all folks stay the whole four nights?  Trying to plan out not only expenses, but time-off requests as well...

I'd say come for as much as you can afford. I'm gonna be there Wednesday to Sunday.
Are you gonna help out at Grogheads Central Command or just sightsee and play games?
