At the Origins International Game Expo held over the past weekend in Columbus, Ohio the Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts and Design announced the winners of the 33rd Annual Origins Awards.  This year retailers voted on nominees presented by game manufacturers at the GAMA trade show (see 'Origins Awards Include Retailer Votes') and the five entries in each category that received the most votes became the finalists (see 'Origins Finalists Announced'). 

 

This year's winners included both Dragon ('Best Non-Fiction Publication of the Year') and Dungeon ('Best Fiction Publication of the Year') -- awards that may well have represented a fond farewell to the two publications, which were recently cancelled (see 'Dungeon & Dragon Magazines to End'), and which have meant so much to the world of adventure gaming over the years.

 

Other key awards went to Looney Labs' Treehouse (Board Game of the Year), Privateer Press' Hordes: Primal (Miniatures Game or Expansion of the Year), WizKids' Pirates: Davy Jones' Curse (CCG or Expansion of the Year), Burning Wheel's Burning Empires (Role-Playing Game of the Year), Mayfair's Settlers of Catan Event Deck (Game Accessory of the Year), and Wizard of the Coast's Colossal Red Dragon (Miniature of the Year).
