On the Road – Origins Game Fair 2012

Greetings WizKids Fans and Supporters!

Another year, another convention season is about to begin.  Last year, WizKids and HeroClix returned to the show and this year will be no different as WizKids will once again be at Origins Game Fair  (link) on May 30 – June 3, 2012.

Players will have the chance to play in many tourneys at Origins this year between HeroClix Nationals, Battle Royales, a Galactic Guardians Colossal event, a Star Trek event, a Lord of the Rings event, a Street Fighter Team-up event, and even Origin Game Fair’s first Quarriors! event.  HeroClix National grinders return and we’ve doubled the number of them from last year.  Can you battle it out with the other players and emerge as the winner while claiming a LE prize and entrance into the National’s Final Event on Saturday?  At the Nationals finals, emerge as the top player and you get a badge to GenCon as well as additional prizes.  Do you have what it takes to be the HeroClix National winner?

In addition to all of these tourneys, you can now do demos in the WizKids tourney hall as well.  Want to learn Quarriors! so you are up to speed for the Quarriors event on Saturday?  Do you want to claim the one ring for yourself, then demo the Lord of the Rings Nazgul board game.  These and many more games will be available for demo at the show.

In the coming weeks, we’ll talk about the special LE prizes for these events and also update all of you on the GenCon list of events.   Can you survive another convention season or will fate be against you?

The full list of events for Origins is below and we look forward to seeing you there!
