In this show we talk about our first experience at the Origins Game Fair and play two segments recorded at the show. 1) We interviewed Anthony Gallela, Executive Director of the Game Manufacturers Association (GAMA): the organization behind Origins, and 2) Jeff Combos of Exile Game Studio took the third seat to discuss the Origins Awards and to let us know what was coming for his game, Hollow Earth Expedition, and the Ubiquity System, in general.
