A French Farewell

By David and Angela / October 13, 2009

At SeriouslyBoard, we don’t like bad news, but we discovered something today that we wanted to share. On the night of August 5th, when the Tongan ferry Princess Ashika sunk beneath the waves, 74 lives were tragically lost.

Endeavor: Putting New Zealand On The Board Gaming Map Since The 18th Century!

By David and Angela / October 10, 2009

If you’ve played any board game involving a world map, you’ve probably noticed it. If, like many Kiwi kids, you grew up with Risk, you’re bound to have seen it. If you’ve played Twilight Struggle or 2009 Spiel des Jahres nominee Pandemic, it can’t have gone unnoticed. For the record, I’m referring to the country…

By David and Angela / September 2, 2009

Board Gaming Aotearoa

By David and Angela / August 5, 2009

Kiwis have always been an ingenious bunch. A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to see (and touch!) the only remaining McLaren M8A Can-Am car. I say this because Bruce McLaren has always inspired me with his attitude of just digging in and getting it done despite a lack of support on a local…

Welcoming Wellycon 2009!

By David and Angela / July 29, 2009

One of the things we love most about board games is the opportunity to trial out new games with new opponents. And there’s no better opportunity to do precisely that than at a board game convention. And so it is with great pride that we announce, (drum roll, please!), that Seriously Board are sponsoring Wellycon…
