Origins GMs Needed!

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!

Sign up to run for us no later than March 31.

I went back to Ohio.

Origins has not yet set a COVID/masking/vaccination policy, and will not formally finalize one until April 21, 2023. They assert that they will “follow CDC guidelines”.

UPDATE (Jan 6, 2023): We’re now taking submissions for games for this event! Sign up now!

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!

Seriously, February is the WORST.

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!
