Everything awesome about sci-fi, fantasy and historical gaming converges under one roof during the Origins Game Fair. On Wednesday, role-players, dice-slingers, card-stackers, board-rulers and other fans of otherworldly adventure gathered from distant lands to overtake the Greater Columbus Convention Center. They'll hold the fortress through Sunday.

Origins is filled with non-electronic social games like "Magic: The Gathering" and "Shadowrun." If you've never attended, you'll be able to play new games, compete in classics and meet the authors, illustrators and publishers behind the best titles.

A $5 day pass gains access to the art show, exhibition hall and open gaming.
