Phoenix is currently without a dedicated gaming convention, so I am throwing my support behind an effort to launch a new convention, Maricopacon.

Origins Game Fair 2010 Exhibitor and Vendor Web Sites

Origins Game Fair released the pre-registration book which included the Origins Game Fair 2010 exhibitor and vendor list.  Sadly, the list is just text and does not contain links to the various vendor web sites.

Advice for Gamers Attending Origins Game Fair 2009

Which, sadly, does not include me. There was a brief moment a few months ago when I considered attending both Origins and Gen Con, but the harsh economic realities quickly quashed that idea.
