This year’s theme is “Superheroes,” and we are looking forward to an extra “SUPER” show.

We once again want to thank Mayfair Games, our show Co-Sponsor, for the third year!  In addition, many of the great events that happen at Origins are a direct result of our wonderful exhibitors. Please be sure to let them know how much we appreciate them.

I also want to announce our Special Guests Ioan Gruffudd and Kevin Sorbo and our Guests of Honor: Artist Charles Urbach, Game Designer Steve Jackson, Author Patrick Rothfuss, Game Designer Steve Kenson, and Game Designer Steven S. Long.

New this year: look for MORE company-sponsored play events in the main gaming hall. More than 10 of our largest sponsors are setting up play space just for you!
