I'm definitely not going to be at Origins (a long way from Japan), but I'd be willing to help with the preliminary judging. Distance could also be a problem when it comes to meeting and discussing the games...
I'm not likely to find more than one opponent, but both of us have tried a fair number of icehouse games, so if there are two-player games, we'll be happy to try them out and give some feedback.
