About the Post

Author Information

One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

From June 11th-15th this year the Origins Game Fair will be returning to Columbus, Ohio for its 18th year in a row. A traditional tabletop gaming convention, Origins will host a myriad of events for board games, card games, RPGs, LARPs, and much more. Not to mention there’s always some pretty awesome celebrities from the gaming industry roaming the halls and playing some games at the convention, and that’s something you don’t want to miss!

Speaking of celebrities, this year’s guests include: Alaina Huffman from Supernatural, Tracy Hickman from the Dragonlance series, and John Kovalic from the Dork Tower website. As always, these guests will host Q&A sessions and be available for photos and autographs, so make sure you get to the con to soak it all up! In addition to the guests, Origins will introduce the Live Long and Game program, which will include a health fair and a 5k run.

Badges are on sale right now, and you can get everything you need for yourself and anyone else who plans to attend. A full five-day badge will come in at $55, and all kids aged 9 and below are free of charge. One-day individual badges are also available, and they’ll cost you $15. For more information head on over to the Origins official site, and get ready for some sweet gaming next month!
