Origins Game Fair is just a little over a month a way. Even though Gencon is only three hours from my apartment, Origins is the only gaming con I'm attending this year. Never been to GenCon. I might go one day, but to be honest, I just don't like the idea of the crowds I've seen in photos. I also go to Origins because I can just Uber there if I really want to (it's less than six miles from my apartment).
Last year I only went a day and a half (even though I bought a full weekend pass). This year I plan on going Thursday through Sunday. I have a leadership conference for work that Wednesday or I'd go then too. I plan on actually playing in some events this year too. I'm definitely going to try to get into a Survive This!! - Dark Places & Demogorgons session and a Survive This!! - Zombies! session with Eric Bloat. I'd love to get into some Dungeon Crawl Classics sessions too. I've ran the game a few times, but I've never been a player.
Just curious, is anyone else planning on going to Origins this year? If so, let me know. If you're not from the area, I can definitely recommend some good spots to eat and wouldn't mind having a little meet-up.
