Gaming Events: Board Games By The Bay!

We at SeriouslyBoard reckon there are few things better in life than playing board games, so we’ve decided to provide you with extra opportunities to do just that by launching Board Games By The Bay!

With the notable exception of Wellycon, there seems to be a shortage of events geared specifically towards board gamers.

The simplest way to solve this unfortunate problem was to create the events ourselves, and a recent poll suggested to us that you liked the idea, too!

We’re starting off with a two day event in Auckland in July, and we’ll be following that up with one in Tauranga in October.  We have other locations in mind where we hope to host events in the near future, too.

And because Andrew Rae and the Wellycon team do such a great job for the folk of Wellington and Palmerston North, we’re working hard to avoid date clashes, meaning the road warrior can attend events all over the North Island!

Board Games By The Bay will feature spot prizes for those who register early, games for sale, and the first New Zealand screening of the soon-to-be-released American board game documentary, Going Cardboard.

These events will be designed to not only cater for gamers, but also as a friendly, welcoming place for people to try a modern board game for the first time – and that has to be good for the board gaming community as a whole.

So clear your calendar, check out the website, and register early for a discount:

We hope to see you there!
