Not sure exactly, not a whole lot right now, being the first day. But plenty of people to play games with!

Day 3 decided to get Clank!, the expansion was sold out already at the show so couldn't get the expansion. Also got a Boss Monster  carrying case.

Played soooo many games today. Another good day at Origins.

2 days left in the convention, Tomorrow will be the busiest and some dealers are already low or out  of some product!!  Guess they should have planned better.

Couldn't make the last day at Origins, needed to pick up my sons from Boys State, which was a 2 hour drive from Columbus to where he was and a 4 hour drive back to my home in northern Ohio.

I had a great time at Origins. I know it isn't as famous as some of the other cons, but I feel there is a lot of focus on actual gaming, and that is what I enjoy about is so much. I enjoy it more than Gen-con. Smaller, but lots of games to play!
