Thanks for the heads up! I was about to plan a weekend roadtrip, but then discovered Archbold OH is on the WESTERN side of Ohio. If only it were the EASTERN side...

OH MAN! I wish I could make the 3-hour drive, but I don't think I can... I second soakman, you should come to the Eastern side for some demos! I'll try to catch you at Origins, then!

Where are you setting up at Origins?

I'd love to give the production copy a whirl.

I'm currently planning on running games in the Board room. It's been a few years since I've been to Origins, I can't remember if there is a non-board room open gaming area.

There was last year. On the north end of the second floor.

Above where the math trade happens on Saturday.

I did not take advantage of the space last year though. I was only at Origins on Saturday and I spent most of the day roaming the exhibition hall.

EDIT: The open gaming space will be available this year as well and in the same location as last year, per the Origins 2014 site book (p34).

Hmmm, then I may hang out there, so people don't have to get the board room badge if they don't want to.

Deal, you host a mid-Ohio game day, invite a ton of random internet strangers, and I will attend =-)

Also Joe, you are welcome to come to our monthly game days here in lovely Montpelier!

I would drive up from Cincy this weekend if I didn't already have family down from Michigan. Bummer.

I'll have a Plaid Hat, and possibly a PHG shirt. I'll also GM you my phone number.

Jon, just wanted to make sure I came here to thank you for making the effort of being available to play this game at origins! It's really awesome you'd engage like that and I feel very lucky I got to play this game at Origins and with you!

I came in with the highest of expectations, and the game still managed to blow my mind. It was all we could talk about on our drive back and I can't wait to get my copy so we can play it some more! (first thing Tom did when he got here? preorder the game!) Thanks again, and good luck with the demo's throughout the rest of the weekend!
