With Origins taking place both in person and virtually this year, part of the hunt for pins has moved online!
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, many publishers and vendors offer special enamel pins that you can earn or purchase during Origins (and other large conventions, check out our guide to hunting for Gen Con Pins HERE).
There are so many beautiful enamel gaming themed pins out there. Sometimes it’s a little fuzzy as to what’s an official Origins or Pin Bazaar Pin and what’s not. I decided to err on the side of including more pretty shinies and have included anyone who is has a booth at Origins this year, virtual or I.R.L., who also happens to have a pin (or two) available for sale on their site.
Earn Free Rares!
Purchase pins from participating companies and email copies of your receipts to firstname.lastname@example.org for free rare pins! ($3 shipping fee applies if not ordered with something from the Foam Brain Games webstore).
6 Pins: 1 Rare Pin
