How I Spent My Origins Vacation
Chris, Pete, and special guest Sharon discuss our experiences at the recent Origins Game Fair 2012 in Columbus, Ohio. The convention was held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center from May 30 – June 3. Chris and Sharon went with their daughter Alicia and we all had a great time. Our discussion recaps our experience, and focuses on Sharon’s impressions as a long-time gamer, first-time convention-goer. Sharon had a lot of anxiety going into the con because it was all terra incognita to her. As a blind gamer, she makes adaptations to play games at home that aren’t always available at the convention, but as it turns out, she had nothing to worry about.
Before the discussion, Pete and Chris recap the 2012 Origins Awards winners, and afterward, Chris makes a few game recommendations and shout-outs based on stuff he learned and people he met at the con.
