Mayfair Games, co-sponsor of the 2011 Origins Game Fair, will be going big at Origins and increasing the scope of its activities at the show to enhance the experience and enjoyment of the attendees. The Origins Game Fair will take place at the Greater Columbus Convention Center June 22-26, 2011.
In addition to going big in the exhibit hall, where Mayfair will utilize over 5,000 square feet of demo tables, tournament space and the new Mayfair Family Fun Area, Mayfair again hosts “The Mayfair Room” with tournaments, a library fully stocked with their games, and over twenty giant games including The Settlers of Catan™, Seafarers of Catan™, Tigris & Euphrates™, Pompeii™, Gangster™, Atlantis™, and pre-release versions of Bull Run™(Martin Wallace), White Water™(Frederic Moyersoen), Five Points™(Andreas Steding), and Imperial Airways™(Martin Wallace). Thursday through Saturday evening, Mayfair will host a Room Party with complimentary soft drinks and snacks.

Mayfair will also continue to run the Great Mayfair Ribbon Quest (where you can become a Knight of Catan and win valuable prizes).
Mayfair Games continues to sponsor the Kid’s Program and Origins Theme Areas. The Origins Kids Room grew 25% in 2010 and offers fun for families and young attendees in 2011.
