Countdown to Origins 2021 (MAYBE)

Want to know where Heroes of Altamira is playing next or want to beg someone to bring HoA to your own local con? Look no further.

Ok, so youngest is now just about 4 weeks away from being fully inoculated. He was the reason for my holdout, so barring the usual barrage of unforeseen circumstances, I will be able to make it. My plan (such as it is) is to bring all the adventures and IF AND ONLY IF WE CAN ALL SCHEDULE TIMES! run playtests for all our remaining adventures (or at least as many as we can get through).

Other than that, no games unless Ken is planning something.

Oh and as a bonus, my oldest, David, has the time free and has been chomping at the bit to come to one of the big cons, so he (most likely) will also be coming...

She doesn't have the money saved up to go this year. But promises to go to GenCon next year (or maybe Origins, but she can only do one).

So called Hyatt this morning, no rooms available in September, only Oct 1,2, and 3. Booked the Sonesta (former Crowne Plaza) across the street from Tuesday through Sunday. Looks like I am going!!!

However, I have booked the Hyatt for the Origins dates for next year (2022) and used points for the stay!!!

Am I reading the website correctly - you have to buy an individual badge for each day? I did not see a listing for an entire event badge.

I saw what you did Deb. But given what I know about Origins, the chance they stopped doing it is far less than the chance they flat out forgot to add it in. So I'm betting it's just a mistake. (fingers crossed)

Now that I've given it more thought, it may be intentional. If they need to control the number of people in attendance each day, it is much more difficult to manage if they are offering both daily and full convention badges. Just a bummer to manage from the attendee perspective....

That makes a lot of sense.
