Origins Game Fair 2011 Exhibitor and Vendor Web Sites









(Bumped, since Origins ended today.)

Summer game convention season opens this year with the 2011 Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio.  While not as big as the venerable Gen Con, it is still a formidable convention with many game offerings.  To make you con-going experience more pleasant we present the list of exhibitors and vendors attending Origins 2011, as well as their web site links and a brief description of each company.  If any of the vendors are interested in changing their entry to something more elaborate or adding a banner, please contact me directly.

There are some exhibitors I could not find, or had names so generic I was not sure which one is attending Origins 2011. In either case, if you have any information on the missing vendor or find any errors in the list, please put up a comment or contact me and I will update the list.


This year’s list is sponsored by the new Steampunk web series “Mantecoza.” If you are interested in more information on this web series, click on the banner below.
