Origins Game Fair opened today. I wasn’t able to go, but it has me thinking about the next convention I will be able to attend, Gen Con. For great reporting from that event (second, of course, to Purple Pawn), I look forward to the twice-daily podcast, This Just In From Gen Con. With new hosts this year, the show is also planning a 5 minute morning preview and a live-blogging Tumblr feed.

To raise money for the production of This Just In From Gen Con, hosts Daniel Perez and Rich Rogers have launched a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo. Perks for contributors include stickers, t-shirts, and hugs, but for a little more you can sponsor an episode and get some advertising exposure.
