I live in Minnesota, but I decide to make the trip down to Ohio for Origins this year (June 26th-29th). Just made this list for those curious.. While the list isn't editable (it's the events I'm going to, after all), feel free to either comment on this list or make another list of what you're going to ^_^. If you're signed up for any of these events at the same time as me, let me know ^_^

"Silent Death 3:1 Red Shirt Smash", Thursday morning, 9am-12:45am. Silent Death is currently one of my favorite games, and I'm particularly looking forward to this one. Hopefully I don't have any problems with picking up my badge, since this event is right at the start of the convention ^^;

"Giant Warhamster Rally", Thursday afternoon, 4:00pm-5:45pm. After a break I set aside for looking at the dealer room, comes this event. I haven't played this one before, though I do own it ('Cause it has the Dork Tower characters!).

"Carabande" Thursday night, at 6:00pm-6:45pm. I like Carabande a lot, so it was an easy choice to sign up for this one.

"Battletech: A Trial by Fire" Thursday night, 7:00pm-12:45am. Originally had signed up for 'Bus' because it fit nicely between two 'Carabande' events, but decided I'd much rather play Battletech for the first time in years, even though that means I'll only be able to attend the first 'Carabande' event.

"Formula De Championships" Friday, 8:00am-3:45pm. In the description: "Players will be divided into multiple leagues running four races". Lasts almost 8 hours, but as of the time I write this, of the 32 seats available, there's only 4 people (including me) signed up.

"Space Hulk: Traitors Among Us" Friday, 4:00pm-8:45pm. Too bad its 2nd edition (I prefer 1st edition with its timed turns and command points), but I've liked Space hulk for nearly a decade now, and don't get near as many chances to play it as I'd like.

"Munchkin in a Blender" Friday evening, 10:00pm-11:45pm. I own Munchkin 1,2, and Star Munckin, as I like the art, though I've never gotten around to playing them. It fit nicely into my schedule, so I signed up.

"Zombies: A Zombie Corps". Saturday really early morning (between Friday Night and Saturday morning) Midnight-2am. From the description: "Play this special midnight version using Zombie Corpse glow in the dark Zombies and special rules". I own Zombies, but never played it. What the heck, an excuse to see how well it plays with special midnight rules.

"Frag Evil Stevie" Saturday morning/afternoon, 11am-2:45pm. From the description: "multiple Frag boards, special rules, 30 players - and one of them is Evil Stevie Jackson himself, ready to take you down!". I wanted to go to the Bitter Woods deluxe edition demo, but after some debating, I chose this instead. Despite the complaints other people have about the cost to component-quality ratio, I really like Frag, and am looking forward to playing it in a way I couldn't normally (heck, I rarely get to play even 4 player games).

"Twilight Imperium" Saturday night, 5:00pm-10:45pm. I have the game, and spent many many hours cutting out the pieces, but still haven't played it. Since newcomers are welcome to this event, I thought it'd be a good way to learn the rules (though they don't look all that complex). However, as of the time I write this, I'm the only person signed up for this event.

"GIANT Settlers of Catan". Sunday morning, 8:00am-9:45am. From the description: 'The basic game on a huge 3 D board setup'. Basically, another case of just trying out a game in a way I can't at home.

"Hack N' Slash". Sunday morning, 10:00am-11:45am. No entry on the BGG for this game yet, so for now, it's going under "Misc game accessory" for lack of anything better. Never played it, don't know much about it (not all that much on their website), but might as well give something obscure a try.

"Macro Insecta", Sunday afternoon 2:00pm-5:45pm. Another game that I have, but never played. This event is "Newcomers welcome", so I'll learn the game this way.

"Wizard Kings: Keep Your Hands off my Princess". Sunday evening, 6:00pm-7:45pm.. and to close off the convention, I'll give Wizard Kings a try. I already have the game + all the expansion armies and maps, despite having never played it. I've read through the rules, but just haven't gotten around to it.. I'll see how much I like it here.
