At Origins Game Fair 2019 (June 12-16, in Columbus, OH), Ares Games, with the help of Ares Aviator and Buckeye Gamers, will run 40 events, many of them focused on our miniature games. The largest one is expected to be "Battlestar Galactica - the 33 Campaign", at Ares' booth (A105), on Friday at 1:00 PM, with up to 66 people fighting simultaneously with Battlestar Galactica Starship Battles, our starship combat miniature game based on the Battlestar Galactica™ TV series.

“Battlestar Galactica – the 33 Campaign” is a series of events inspired by “33”, the first episode of the Reimagined series. The Battlestar Galactica and the rest of the Colonial fleet are relentlessly pursued by Cylons; 33 minutes after each faster-than-light jump, they arrive again, trying to exterminate what’s left of Mankind. After the launch at UK Games Expo, the 33 Campaign jumps to Origins. All attendees are welcome – no previous knowledge of the game rules is required. Players will receive an exclusive “Admiral Adama” promo card as a reminder of the event, as well as a limited-edition event promo card, a discount coupon to bring the ship they’ve battled in home, and additional prizes offered by Ares and by the co-sponsor of the campaign, Slitherine Software, publisher of the official videogame for PC and consoles “Battlestar Galactica – Deadlock".
