Origins Award Winners

The Game Manufacturers Association (GAMA) and the Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts & Design announced the winners of the Origins Awards 2024 at Origins Game Fair on Friday, June 21.  Some really great games got the nod this year.

Origins Award Best Gateway Game – Wandering Towers

Get your wizards to the keep first, by running, using magical moving towers and potions to your advantage, all while trapping other wizards along the way. A fun, almost party level game of racing, memory, and chaos. There’s a lot to like here: laugh out loud fun, wide player count suitability, fast playing, and amazing table presence.

1-6 Players, 8+, 30 Minutes, 7.4 Rating

Origins Award Best Light Strategy Game – Leaf

You are the wind, guiding leaves to the forest floor. Each fallen leaf connects to other fallen leaves, and each connection creates an action you can use to build up a collection of acorns. Collect the most acorns, and you win, Wind!

1-4 Players, 8+, 30-45 Minutes, 7.5 Rating
