Diversity Fundraiser

Please Spread the Word

We’ve been trying really hard to get more diversity to our lovely Games on Demand event at Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio. This year, Jay Treat has organized a fund raiser to help us do exactly that. As we all know, cost is one of the biggest barriers for women, people of color, and lgbtq folx to attend conventions. Help us bring them to Origins 2016 so they can run games, network with industry professionals, and have a blast at Games on Demand.

Origins Games on Demand 2015

Origins Games on Demand 2015

Hey friends! We’re starting to organize Games on Demand for Origins this year! I’m super excited! Last year was such a success, with great friends, food, and games both tabletop and LARP.

It’s held here in my city: Columbus Ohio June 3rd-7th

Games on Demand, in case you’re not familiar, is an open-gaming event put on at various game conventions. It typically consists of a designated area with tables, material and a constant supply of GMs prepared to run a variety of independent and cutting edge games. Here’s our website for more info: http://www.indiegamesexplosion.org/games-on-demand/

Are you interested in volunteering? Will I see your wonderful face there? Do you know people who are interested in volunteering?

Let me know! I’m sending out organizing emails shortly!
