I believe every last one of you have received your games, and are happily engaged in Superpowered Card battles. If you somehow got missed, please shoot me a message!
I’m happy to report that our Board Game Geek rating has settled at a very solid 8.0. We’d appreciate more ratings and comments if you have the time! You can leave yours at:
As promised, here is the 3rd expansion preview Origin set - Alien Parasite!
This set features another fun mechanic, in which you can put certain cards under other cards, to empower them or to cause harmful side effects...in true Parasitic fashion!

Hi everyone! Last weekend, we had a blast exhibiting at Board Game Geek Spring Con at the Hyatt Regency at DFW airport. Everybody that sits down to play really enjoys the game! (Many thanks to my brother Richard and my son Lucas for coming out to support!)
In other news, the good folks over at Two-Gun Pixie are featuring an Originz giveaway (tomorrow night at 8pm EST), and then another live play-through on Saturday. YouTube and Facebook links for the content are below:
As for logistics - Almost everybody has gotten their games, which makes us very, very happy. We do a have a few backers whose shipments got stalled, so we are working with UPS to send out new copies. Don’t worry, the games are on the way! Please reach out to us if you haven’t received the game and you don’t have a solid tracking number (if you haven’t already). We are committed to all of you.
Lastly, I promised another Origin set preview from the “Inner Conflict” expansion. Last week we showed off the slick Mystic Ninja set. This week, Behold the legendary, supernatural power of Vampire Mutation!

Most of our US backers have received their pledge rewards already, and are actively playing Originz! It’s been so fulfilling to hear so much positive feedback on your gameplay experiences.
Our international shipments will commence as soon as we wrap up domestic deliveries.
For those of you receiving your game, here are a few reminders:
1) Your respective Origin decks come pre-constructed, but not pre-sorted. When you get your box, just organize the cards into their respective decks by matching Origin Symbols. You also will receive some extra KS promotional cards, including some alternate art Hero/Villain cards, made in the likeness of our top-tier backers. These are extras! You can just pick your favorite art of the 2 options to play with, and put the others aside. Also, the 8 extra Power Cosmic cards are there for fun during advanced play, when you start to mix and match your Origin decks.
2) For those of you that want to jump right in, there is a Digital Quick Start Guide available on the Originz website at www.originzcardgame.com.
It’s not a comprehensive list of rules and keywords like you have in the rule book, but it will get you going quick! Feel free to message us for any questions!
3) Your playmats and your Games will arrive in 2 separate shipments. We had one backer receive a box with a significant manufacturing defect, which we are replacing. Our manufacturer is confident these types of issues happen less than 1% of the time, but feel free to contact us if you encounter one!
4) We have surplus games and playmats if you decide you’d like to purchase extras or gifts for friends and family. Just let us know.
If you’d like to visit and play with us, we are planning to have a booth at the upcoming Board Game Geek Con in Dallas, TX (May 24-27 at the Hyatt Regency DFW).
Lastly, we are continuing work on an a stand-alone expansion featuring new Origin decks. We’ll share details and previews soon!
Thanks again for everything!
Evan and Alex

It’s finally happening - our friendly neighborhood UPS has begun shipping out your rewards! Domestic shipments will arrive by UPS (in 2-3 weeks) international shipments will arrive by USPS (in roughly 4-5 weeks). These are only estimates. If your rewards don’t arrive in this timeframe, please reach out to us - we’ll have the ability to track them.
Your Originz box comes in a nice, snug package. Playmats will arrive separately but around the same time, neatly rolled up in tubes of various sizes (depending on how many you ordered). See pics below.
We can’t wait for you to get your rewards and to hear your feedback. We have every confidence your going to love the game! Along those lines, we’d really appreciate your ratings & reviews of Originz on:
Next update will include preview cards and details on the upcoming stand-alone 88 card expansion. Cards & their respective art have already been completed for 3 of the 4 NEW superpower Origins decks! They are pretty awesome :)
Lastly, we’ve got extra inventory (which will eventually make its way to Amazon) if you decide you want to order extra games or mats. Just let us know!
Thanks again for making this game a reality!
