Queen’s Birthday Conventions

In just a week and a half, there will be three conventions celebrating the long weekend, and we at SeriouslyBoard are involved in sponsoring them all in some form or another – so if you’re in Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch, make sure you don’t miss out!

Probably the best thing about Queen’s Birthday weekend is that for most people it means a long weekend, with Monday being a day off work.

And the best thing about long weekends is that it gives everyone more opportunities to play board games!

We at SeriouslyBoard are excited to have a hand in three different conventions on Queen’s Birthday weekend.

ConText – New Zealand’s 32nd Annual National Science Fiction And Fantasy Convention – is happening in Auckland from June 3rd to June 6th.  There will be board gaming on the agenda, and you’ll be able to get a SeriouslyBoard discount if you’re there!

Another convention that will enable you to have a discount is Buckets Of Dice, which is being held in Christchurch, also from June 3rd to June 6th.  Primarily a roleplaying and wargaming convention, BoD 2011 also has board gaming, and a SeriouslyBoard presence.

And speaking of a SeriouslyBoard presence, we’ll be in Wellington on June 4th and 5th to attend Wellycon.  We’ve sponsored Wellycon in the past and we’re really excited to be there in person again.  We’ll also have a stall set up so if you’re looking for an internet price with a brick and mortar delivery time, make sure you come and say hello!

And if, for whatever reason, you can’t make any of these events, remember to keep an eye on our Board Games By The Bay events.  We’re really looking orward to running these events in Auckland and Tauranga, as well as adding new venues as we progress.
