The Divine Dragon Caper expansion follows on December 16, and includes cards designed to work with the Ritual of Dragon Sorcery deck and new trump cards.  This expansion will be packaged in five-card booster packs, sold in 30-pack displays.  The total set will include 104 cards with these rarities:  2 GR, 8 RRR, 12 RR, 22 R, and 60 C.  There will also be 2 SGR parallel and 12 SP parallel cards, and 5 special reissue cards from the SP Clan Pack with new artwork packed randomly in some boosters. Each booster will have one R rarity or above card. As an incentive, those who pre-order will receive an exclusive playmat for each carton ordered.

Origins Game Fair and Otaku Hobby Gaming

May 30, 2016

Orgins Game Fair is this June 15th through the 19th at Columbus Convention Center in Columbus.  It is one the largest gathering of gamers and games in the country and they have some anime/Japanese themed games and events for all.

Last year they started Anime themed programming by partnering with Wasabi Anime, local anime conventions, and others.  This year they have expanded that programming.  There will be panels, screenings, workshops, a manga library, and more.  They will have events Thursday through Saturday only though.  They have the use of three rooms for events and the library.  Special events include an Anime Name That Tune game show, Trulie Awesome Show (an anime inspired comedy duo), and playing anime games with the maids of Cafe Peitet Joy.

The Special Media Guests for this year’s con are two anime voice actors, Darren Dunstan and Wayne Grayson.  Darren has voiced on Yu-Gi-Oh! (Pegasus), the 2003 TMNT (Splinter), Chaotic (Kaz), and several other 4Kids productions along with doing voice direction for a number of series.  Wayne has done voice work for over 20 years, his best know work though is Yu-Gi-Oh! (Joey), Utena (Ruka), Samurai Deeper Kyo (Benitora), and the 2003 TMNT (Michelangelo).  The two of them will only be there for Saturday and Sunday, helping to judge the costume contest, holding a Q&A, and a signing on Saturday.  On Sunday they will be in the Konami area of Battelle Hall all day.

Bushiroad, Pokémon, and Konami all have plenty of tournaments going on, all different styles and sizes.  Special promoted ones include Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Origins to win a prize card “Minerva, the Exalted Lightworn”, Pokémon Unlimited Tournament celebrating 20 years of Pokémon and Pokémon TCG Win-a-Trip Tournament to go to the 2016 World Championships in San Francisco, Cardfight!! Vanguard G Team League Spring Fest 2016 Regial Qualifer, Weiss Schwarz Neo Showdown Spring Fest 2016 Regional Qualifier, and Future Card Buddyfight Buddy Challenge Spring Fest 2016 Regional Qualifier.

There are a few RPGs with anime themes.  Kuro from Cubicle 7 has three different sessions to play, all starting at 8am though.  Plus some Big Eye Small Mouth sessions, fantasy and post-apocalyptic ones.  Windmill Game Co is running several sessions of their game Advanced Dimensional Green Ninja-Educational Preparatory Super-Elementary Fortress 555 (ADGNEPSEF555), which is designed as a free for all anime inspired game where anything should happen set in a school.  They will also have game of it based around wuxia and henshin heroes too.

For those interested in LARPS there are some anime themed ones.  The Pokémon company’s LARP is just having you challenge other players with your 3DS or 2DS and a copy of X, Y, Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire to collect gym badges to then beat the Elite Four and the Champion to win a prize.  It goes on all day on Thursday through Sunday.  Not really a traditional LARP unless you put some character into, which I think would be a lot of fun.  A more traditional LARP is ADGNEPSEF555: The Movie!! The LARPening!!! on Sunday starting at noon.  Inspired from the above RPG.

On the miniature side of things we have some unique items.  One man has modified rules from other games to make his own Starblazer’s space game (two sessions) and Area 88  fighter plane game (one session).  Cool Mini or Not has some “miniature figure board games” to check out too.  Arcade Quest about playing a guild of heroes fighting evil, Rivet Wars a sort of WWI battle with cute and wacky figures, and Kaosball a fantasy sport league.  Plus Super Dungeon Explorer and Ninja All-Stars from Ninja Division.

Board throughout the long weekend include Kitsune: of Foxes and Fools (the only game actual using the Anime track listing), Lanterns: The Harvest Festival Tournament, King of Tokyo games, Hanabi, and Samurai Spirit.

There will also be videoing too.  Pokémon handheld, Mario Kart, Pokken, Smash Bros, Street Fighter, and a retro game challenge tournaments are all planned.

Early Bird registration pricing ends tomorrow, so sorry this is so late.  Ribbons, generics, and event registration will not be available online.  Badge Registration will remain open through the show though.

This is a con for all fans of gaming to check out at least once.  Though it can get a bit expensive of five days.  I will actually be at this one.  I have not been for a few years so I am excited for it.
