Shorthand for the Origins International Game Expo and Fair, held every year in Columbus, Ohio, in the month of July. Origins is America's second most prominent annual gaming convention - the number one spot likely goes to Gen Con, which (like Origins) is managed by Andon Unlimited. Unlike Gen Con, Origins is specifically chartered to serve adventure gaming in general, including wargames and miniatures gaming, which you don't tend to find as well represented at Gen Con. Origins is the site of the annual Origins Awards ceremony.
