We are looking for game facilitators to join us at Origins Games on Demand 2023, held as part of Origins Game Fair (June 21-25, 2023) in-person in Columbus, OH. If you volunteer to run 4 slots for us, you get a free badge to the convention!
Everyone needs something to look forward to in February. It’s cold, it’s icy, it hasn’t got any long weekend holidays. People have disliked February as far back as the Romans!
So here’s our solution to the February blahs: Games on Demand Online’s Winter Games on Feb. 24-26! Join game designers, game hosts, and players from all over the world at a convention held entirely online. No need to drive on ice or fight weather delayed flights! Make a cup of hot tea, wrap up with your favorite warm blanket, put on your fluffy slippers, and log in.
We want this convention to be available to everyone, so it’s free! We’re also working on accessibility, inclusion and safety guidance for game runners and players. We anticipate the game proposal form will be available by the end of the year. In the meantime, join our Discord for the latest.
If you’d like to help spread the word in the meantime, drop this image into your social media posts!

Speaking of GMs, it’s NEVER too late to volunteer to run games with us! If you know the format, consent to all of our requires safety tools, and have a game ready to go, stop by and we’ll set you up with a slot.
We are particularly interested in welcoming people of color, women, non-binary and LGBTQ folx as volunteers (and players) at our event, so please let us know if there’s anything we can do to help make that possible for you.
