BGBTB Auckland: Martin Wallace, Math Trade, And Much More!

Board Games By The Bay is arriving in Auckland in just 4 weeks’ time!

Historically the biggest BGBTB event on the calendar, Auckland will feature all the gaming goodness of previous events: a great place to play games, prizes to be won, and games for sale at below internet prices.

In addition to the above, we’ll also have a few other things that will make this a weekend to remember:

  • Martin Wallace – The award winning designer (London, Discworld: Ankh-Morpork) has confirmed he’ll be at our Auckland event.  If you want a game autographed, if you want to playtest one of his designs, or if you just want to meet a world famous designer, this is your chance!

  • Math Trade – After the suggestion was raised in February for us to run a math trade, we’ve decided to take the plunge.  The entire trade will be based on site, meaning you don’t have to be a member of a website to make it happen – just bring along your unwanted games on Saturday morning and you might walk away with something better!

    Not sure what a math trade is?  In short, it’s a way to trade a game you no longer want for someone else’s game that you do want.  A more detailed explanation can be found here.

  • Much More – As with recent events, we’ll have prizes to give away, plus promos, food and drink on offer, games for sale at discounted prices, and a library of gaming goodness for all attendees.  We also have a couple of other ideas in mind to sweeten the deal!Not sure if your favourite game in your collection will be there?  Bring it along and add it to the playing pool!

    We’ll be using a giant dice for giveaways. (Child not included!)

And to top it all off, gaming will last for 4 more hours than last year, with Saturday night staying open until 10pm!  That’s 20 hours in all!
