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.

In case you forgot, here’s the amazing time we had last year.

GoD at PAX South

GoD at PAX South

Hey everyone! Who here is interested in seeing Games on Demand at PAX South? Andi Carrison would like to help us make that happen!

“I manage the Tabletop department for PAX South, and I’m looking to find the right folk to lead and coordinate a Games on Demand presence there. Last year (its inaugural year), there was no GoD at PAX South. I want to remedy that going forward, as it’s important to me that GoD has a presence at PAX. In short, I’d like to invite GoD to PAX South.

PAX South is January 29th-31st in San Antonio, TX at the Henry B

Gonzalez Convention Center. I’d love to talk about what this could look like.”

So who’s interested in stepping up to make this happen? 

Indie+ Hangout Panel About Games on Demand


The Indie+ team organized a Google Hangout panel discussion about Games on Demand. It aired live on Sep 19, 2015 and featured Rich Rogers moderating a conversation with Kristin Firth, Evan Torner, Renee Knipe, Ross Cowman, Natalie Holt, and Steve Segedy.

“At big cons like GenCon, Origins and PAX, as well as little gaming conventions, brave souls organize and sign up to run games on demand. Why do they do this thing? How do they pull it off?”
