Origins Game Fair 2019 Recap and Haul

Sharing is caring!

Let's recap our awesome Origins Game Fair 2019 trip and see what board games we picked up!

We had a fun time attending Origins 2019 together as a family.

The kids loved fighting with foam swords in the arena and spending time in Critter Care, the onsite daycare service.

We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
