The 2018 Origins Game fair was just this last weekend, and that means that the Origins Awards have been handed out to a select few amazing games that have proven to be the best in their fields. Come see if your favorite game won an Origins Award this year.
That’s right folks, it’s time to see what other awards Gloomhaven wins this year (even though if you think about it the game has been around since 2016, though it’s true that this is really the year of the official full release), because it’s time to take a look at the winners of the 2018 Origins Awards, presented by the Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts and Design. Not kidding about Gloomhaven either, this game has swept the categories in the cons/fairs this season, taking home Innovative and Game of the Year at BoardGamegeek’s Golden Geek awards. There’s a lot going on in that game. It satisfies and gets its hooks in you like no other game–but enough about Gloomhaven, let’s take a look at this year’s winners, courtesy of ICv2.
