Encyclopedia > Origins Awards

The Origins Awards, presented by the Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts and Design, are presented at the Origins International Game Expo for outstanding work in the game industry. Awards are given for the previous year, so (for example) the 1979 awards were given at the 1980 expo.


Originally, the Charles Roberts Awards were given out at the Origins Expo, in five categories: Best Professional Game, Best Amateur Game, Best Professional Magazine, Best Amateur Magazine and Adventure Gaming Hall of Fame. In 1978, the Expo also hosted the 1977 H. G. Wells awards for Roleplaying games and Miniature wargaming. Starting with the 1987 awards, the Charles S. Roberts were once again given separately, and they have since moved away from the Origins Expo.


Since the first ceremony, the game categories have widened to include Board games (Traditional, Historical and Abstract), Card games (Traditional and Trading), Miniature wargaming (Historical, Science Fiction and Fantasy), Roleplaying games and Play by mail games. There are additional categories for Graphic Design, for game expansions and accessories, and for game-related fiction. During the 1980s and 1990s awards were also given to Computer games.
