Staff pick: Origins Game Fair at the convention center

From the May 24, 2012 edition

Time travel is the theme at this year’s massive Origins Game Fair, which begins Wednesday. Thousands of game enthusiasts (and people who like to see adults in out-there costumes) will descend on the convention center for four days of card-based, miniature and other games, as well as live-action role playing.

Wil Wheaton, a “champion of geek culture” famous for his roles in “Eureka,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Stand By Me,” will be at the fair, as will Felicia Day (“Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog,” “The Guild,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) and Adrienne Wilkinson (“Xena: Warrior Princess”). Game designers, artists and authors are also making appearances.

A day pass to the event is just $10, and that gets you spectator access to non-ticketed events.
