The Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts and Design has unveiled the list of nominees for the 37th Annual Origins Awards that will be held at the Origins Game Fair in Greater Columbus Convention Center on June 22-26 .
Five nominees have been named in each of the 9 categories (except for Best Historical Board Game) through a vote by game retailers in March 2011 during the GAMA Trade Show from a shortlist by a jury of game professionals and knowledgable enthusiast.
The winner of each category would be voted by attendees of the Origins Game Fair and the award ceremony would be held on June 25, which is the second last day of the fair.
The nominees would be vying for the Calliope trophy in the Best Roleplaying Game, Best Roleplaying Supplement, Best Board Game, Best Traditional Card Game, Best Family, Party or Children’s Game, Best Gaming Accessory, Best Miniatures Rules, Best Historical Game and Best Game-Related Publication categories.
