MOKTask On Origins Attendance

While it doesn’t ‘feel’ crowded, there were certainly more people there this year than last. The dealer hall had more people to ‘weave’ through, but still you could stop and have conversations without blocking anyone else. You almost can’t stop by some booths at Gen con, because you will be trampled (or hear people talking directly to you)

As I told my friends, to compare Origins and Gen con.

Gen con is like a Tarrasque while, Origins is more like a Siren. Both will certainly kill you dead. But the Tarrasque will stomp your guts in, and Origins just lures you into a false sense of security and drains you slowly.

I enjoy both conventions quite a bit, and if a person identifies themselves as a ‘gamer’ and has the means, should go to both.
