Origins 2009 Coverage and Interviews

It’s (finally) time for Origins — and that means the Chief Elf is on the move!

Armed only with a camera, digital recorder, paper, pens, pen refills, a freaking huge stack of business cards, a big refillable cup, and some games that I never get to play because I can’t find opponents anywhere except at this show, I’ll prowl the convention, looking for the coolest games, the best fun, and the most entertaining images. It’s all for you!! (And because it’s just so darned much fun to do stuff like this!)

Show coverage from your favorite Chief Elf

Provided the Internet connections work, I’ll post photos and updates here from Friday through Sunday, with a wrap-up post coming Monday or Tuesday. If you can’t attend, at least you can see what you’re missing!

For Exhibitors — looking for games to review

As always, I’m looking for new board games to review, particularly games that work well for families, as well as fast games — anything that plays in 30 minutes or less.

This year, I’m also looking for games to include in my new parenting book, “Dad Tonight: How to laugh, love, and live with your kids – starting tonight!”

For Media — interview schedule

I’m available for interviews about my new book, family and European board games, retailing tips, and other random topics any time during the show. To arrange an interview, you can catch me as I wander the halls, find me in the Board Room, or just do it the easy way and call me at 260-312-0562.

I hope to see you at the show!!!

2009 Origins Game Fair coverage

It’s that time of year again! Next Friday, I’m headed to Columbus, Ohio, for this year’s Origins Game Fair. I’ll be there all day Friday and Saturday, plus most of Sunday.

Watch this space for updates from the show floor, including new products (particularly board games, card games, party games, family games, and such), interviews with industry luminaries, photos, and whatever else catches my eye.

If you’re curious for my insights about a particular game, then post a comment and let me know. I’ll do my best to find info about it for you at the show!

(Disclosure: From 2000 to 2009, I served as a staff member, senior volunteer, and board member with GAMA, the organization that runs Origins. I’m no longer associated with either GAMA or Origins.)
