Heroscape @ Origins (Columbus, OH) October 7-11, 2020 ?

Origins is the second largest US boardgame con after Gencon, but the miniatures/wargame area is larger than Gencon. I have ran Heroscape events in the past with moderate success (2017, 2011).

Due to the pandemic the pre-scheduled Origins dates of June 17-21 has moved to an "Online" but the in-person one moves to October 7-11. What is the interest of Heroscapers interested in coming to this convention if we had Heroscape events there this year? The con is normally $85 but if we do I will register Heroscapers or my local boardgame group as a "Club" so you will get 30% off registration making it $60 to attend which is slightly over half of Gencon (not counting, travel, hotel, food, event tickets, etc). My guess is people's desire will be different based on these scenarios with Gencon:
  1. Gencon cancels completely for 2020 (or moves to virtual)
  2. Gencon has event as scheduled July 30 - August 2
  3. Gencon postpones to Fall/Winter of 2020.
My guess is for scenario 1 a lot of people would be interested as this would be the closest alternative, if scenario 3 then very few people would be interested as they would almost be directly competing, but scenario 2 is where it gets interesting. Some people would still go to Gencon, but others might shy away due to concerns on health or current $ situation. I know we do not know for sure what Gencon is deciding to do, but I wanted to drum up interest and discussion here, especially if Gencon is going forward as scheduled.

So quote/copy below and tweak how interested you would be in attending Heroscape events at origins on a scale of 1-5 (5=Definitely, 4=Probably, 3=Maybe, 2=Possibly, 1=No interest) in each scenario above:
  1. 5 (Definitely)
  2. 3 (Maybe)
  3. 2 (Possibly)

Re: Origins Game Fair (Columbus, OH) October 7-11, 2020

1. 4 (Probably)
2. 4 (Probably)
3. 4 (Probably)

Basically I'd like to do this regardless of Gencon's decision but can't yet be 100% certain I'm free then. Thanks for doing the initial research here, this sounds quite intriguing.

I was unable to attend Gencon either way and Columbus is much closer. Depending on my availability at the time, I would be interested, especially since I have never attended any of these events. How much notice would be needed, and how many days would you actually have Heroscape events running?

Re: Heroscape @ Origins (Columbus, OH) October 7-11, 2020 ?

I should clarify: my interest is dependent on Heroscape running events the whole time, not just one day / one event. Its quite a drive out for me that I'm happy to do for a Gencon-level # of games but I can't justify it for just a one day event.

I would be interested either way. Always looking for a good tournament. Only way I probably will pass is if Gencon is in the fall.

What GenCon taught me was to assume only one skull on three dice!

Re: Heroscape @ Origins (Columbus, OH) October 7-11, 2020 ?

Being Gencon canceled for 2020 (Heroscapers Online Con 2020 is still happening), would anyone be interested in going to Origins (Columbus, OH) October 7-11? This also is dependent on it not later being canceled, but if it did happen and we had a few Heroscape tournaments, who would go?
