Dungeons & Dragons to Co-Sponsor 2017 Origins Game Fair

COLUMBUS, OH- Origins is pleased to announce Dungeons & Dragons as show co-sponsor of the 2017 Origins Game Fair! Dungeons & Dragons will be increasing opportunities to interact with the D&D team at the show, participate in Adventurer’s League events, and grab some exclusive items created specifically for D&D fans at Origins. The Origins Game Fair will take place at the Greater Columbus Convention Center June 14-18, 2017.

“We are super excited to expand the Dungeons & Dragons presence at Origins this year,” said Mike Mearls, head of D&D design and development. “I’ve been putting a lot of work into designing the epic all-day event this year. Fans of D&D are going to be really interested to see the twists and turns we’ve got in store.”

Dungeons & Dragons showcases the best in storytelling and social experiences, and our focus at Origins will continue in that vein. Along with tabletop play at the Hyatt Regency Ballroom, and the massive all-day event of the D&D Open on June 17th focused on the newest Dungeons & Dragons story, we also have new immersive experiences in the Ballroom foyer and at Barley’s Brewing Company.  By participating in these experiences, attendees will be able to pick up some Origins exclusive items such as the Barley’s D&D pint glass and the D&D Bag of Devouring.

Finally, D&D fans and creative Dungeon Masters at Origins will have the opportunity to attend seminars and activities led by members of the D&D team, including Mike Mearls, Chris Perkins, Jeremy Crawford and Chris Lindsay. The D&D team will work with attendees to flesh out their game ideas and mechanics, as well as get a sneak peek of what’s coming later in 2017.
