The Origins Games Fair is held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center
in Columbus, Ohio. Known for it’s friendly mid-west atmosphere, Origins is an absolute blast every year. In 2016 it will be held June 15th – 19th.
The event will take place in the Hyatt-Fairfield room and will run in three sessions each day, from 9am-1pm, 2pm-6pm, and 8pm-midnight on Thursday through Saturday and 9am-1pm on Sunday. There will be LARPs on Demand as well, which are detailed in the main event book!
Stop by with 2 generics per 4 hour game, or buy tickets for timed slots ahead of time. If you want to see what’s on the menu, stop by about 10 minutes before each session and you’ll see what games you’ll have the ability to demand from our talented and friendly GMs. No games are guaranteed to run, but we try our hardest to offer the newest small press games out there!
What games can you expect to see? Here’s a list of likely suspects: Continue reading
Origins starts next week, June 4th-7th, and Games on Demand will be there!

Indie Games on Demand at Origins
We Want You!
Origins Game Fair in Columbus OhioÂ (happening June 11-15th) is our favorite game convention of the year. Why?
It’s super laid back and fun, and you actually get to hang out with people, eat delicious Columbus food and drink delicious Columbus drinks, and play all of your favorite indie games with all my favorite indie people without running around like mad like at a gigantic convention like Gencon.
Evan Torner, Jim Crocker, and Kira Magrann are organizing Indie Games on Demand again this year!
Here’s what we’ll have this year:
– A new streamlined signup process
– An amazing team of GMs and players
– The hot new small press and independently designed games you want to try
– Support for people new to gaming and GMing
– Jeni’s Ice cream
– The awesomeness that is the indie/storygaming/people that like edgy and new games community

The Game Directory for Origins
Is here! This is a list, although not exhaustive, of games we’ll be featuring at Indie Games on Demand at Origins. Take a look see!
Most certainly there’s games not on this list that our GMs would be interested in running. If you’re curious about something you’ve heard of but it’s not on this list, just ask. Also, not all GMs can run all games. Although that would be an amazing feat, we are limited by the games we enjoy and know how to run.
We’ve already begun to organize for next year! If you’re interested in GMing, send an email to Kira Scott at anansi at gmail. We’ll add you to the already bustling list of GMs ready to rock the event this year!
Also join our Facebook group to meet the community of GMs and players: Indie Games on Demand – Origins.
We look forward to seeing you all in Columbus Ohio, rolling dice and playing games!
The Indie Games on Demand room is all set up and ready to run games tomorrow at 2pm. Stop by and visit us!
Hey! You! Gamers! Are you coming to Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio this year? The convention runs May 30-June 3, 2012 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center located right downtown. We would love to see your game faces at our Indie Games on Demand event!
