This year’s theme for Origins is Space. The submission deadline is March 1, 2015.

Please Note:
Demo Games are only to be run either 1) at a booth in the exhibit hall; 2) space designated in a sponsorship agreement. Demo games should not be listed on the event schedule and are to be free to attendees. Demos are games that are shown to the perspective buyer to allow them to understand the game mechanics they do not constitute a “full” session of the game. This does not include games run for beginners, where rules are taught, but are played to their conclusion.
Tournaments – GMs running events as tournaments will need to report to Origins the name of the winners of your tournaments.
Events that do not run – Origins is happy to provide GMs with compensation for the time they spend supporting our show. Currently, Origins policy is to credit GMs before the show for events submitted and accepted. To make the approach work optimally for all concerned, when a scheduled event does not run, the GM is responsible to check in at the area headquarters. GMs may be asked to assist in other ways during the period in which their event would have run.

Events must be submitted via email using the excel spreadsheet. Send submissions to Event Coordinator at There are no other accepted avenues for submissions. If you have any questions or problems, please call the office at (614) 255-4500 or email us at the email above.


Thanks again for being part of our family and making Origins a great event!
