Columbus, OH – Steve Jackson, owner and founder of Steve Jackson Games, will be attending Origins Game Fair this June! Jackson has received over a dozen Origins awards, and has created timeless games such as Ogre and Illuminati. Origins attendees will have the opportunity to learn to play different games that he'll demonstrate, get his signature, and participate in a special event!
Steve will be demonstrating a few of his classic games at this convention, including Illuminati, one of Steve Jackson Games' top sellers. Participants will learn to take over the world, with Evil Stevie himself as their guide, at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, June 13. If players would like to find out more about space warfare, Steve will be available to demonstrate how Triplanetary is played at 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 16. Finally, Jackson's first RPG will be returning soon! At 1 p.m. on Thursday, June 14, attendees can get an advance look at The Fantasy Trip by playing with Steve.
Those who love evil cybertanks and strategy will have the chance to play Ogre! At 1 p.m. on Friday, June 15, Steve will take on 12 players at once. How many games of Ogre can he win? We'll find out! As a bonus, Ogre Line Editor Drew Metzger will be at Origins as well. Attendees will have three opportunities to play Ogre with him, including at 4 p.m. on June 15 and 16, and at 9 a.m. on June 17.
Finally, Steve Jackson Games will have its own special room in the convention. To chat with our very own Steve or simply hang out with him, go to Office Hours with Steve, which will be occurring at 1 p.m. on Sunday, June 17, in room C150. If attendees can't be present at this special event, they'll have two additional opportunities to meet Steve. He'll be available for signatures at 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday in the Steve Jackson Games room.
Steve Jackson Games staff will be around to teach players other games, so those who are planning to take part in Origins Game Fair should pay special attention to our Facebook page and our Daily Illuminator. We'll be posting more information on our social media as we get closer to the convention!
