Origins Events

Online event registration is now closed.

Origins is all about a great play experience, and that means great games, or as we call them, events. Events cover a large variety of activities, but are not always focused on gaming.

There are large scale tournaments such as worlds, nationals, and regionals; as well as small scale casual events for beginners and experts alike.

To participate in for events, you will need a badge to the show and an event ticket, a ribbon, or some generics. To find out more about signing up for events please visit the FAQ page.

We’re excited to announce the events for Origins Game Fair 2017!¬†Click below to see the Event Grid!
