Origins Awards Nominees

Awards this Weekend

Published: 05/30/2012, Last Updated: 06/01/2012 12:52pm
The Origins Awards nominees will form the ballot for the awards this weekend. These nominees were selected by retailers that attended the GAMA Trade Show in Las Vegas last spring.  The winners will be selected by the vote of attendees at the Origins Game Fair. 

Note:  We were informed on June 1 that the list of nominees that was published on the Oirigns Website was incorrect.  Two titles that were on that list have been removed, below, and we're told that this list is now the same as the list on the ballot.  More info soon.
