As per this suggestion, we want to get an idea of who would be interested in a Board Games By The Bay event in Tauranga in March 2013.

To put this into perspective, this would probably be on the second or third weekend of the month, with other events planned as per below:
May - Auckland
July - Hamilton
September - TBC
November - Auckland

These other four events will go ahead regardless, but a March event means less waiting in the New Year.

And of course, there is also Wellycon in June for people to consider.

Please let us know if 20 hours of gaming in March appeals to you or anyone else you can think of. Your registration of interest here would be by no means binding. We just want to know of there is enough demand to warrant the costs of venue hire, advertising, and so forth.

I would be interested in another road trip from Auckland as well. The event for 2012 was great.

It seems to me that the people have spoken!

We're working on dates, venue availability, and planning for an event in March in Tauranga.

Details will be mysteriously leaked to the media from an inside source at some point early in the New Year. thumbsup

Congrats! I daresay you'll be honeymooning?

We're looking at the weekend of March 9-10 at this stage.

If I could get a space on the Auckland contingent road trip then March should work for me

Put me down for a maybe too - I was disappointed to miss the "season" last year through moving to NZ too late in the year and I'm keen to give it a crack assuming I can get a pass out from the wife and kids!

Do you have accommodation in Tauranga sorted, or are you happy to chip in for shared accommodation at a nearby motel?
There was 4 of us who stayed overnight on Saturday last time and it cost about $53pp.

Four of us went down by car last year leaving Greenlane. Stayed at a cheap nice hotel nearby (more evening games) making the trip well worth it.

Once we have a date announced, I suggest we try to organise a car or 3.

Depending on dates I do have accommodation with friends but I'll be happy to join the motel if they are away/busy.

Alrighty, we're locked in for the weekend of March 9-10. It'll be the same venue as 2012.

One thing I'd like to look at is some sort of deal with a local motel, when billets aren't an option.

Where did you lot stay in 2012? Was it affordable/local?

We stayed at http://www.cobblestonecourt.co.nz/

Close to the venue and just over $50 each (4 sharing)

Hi all. Just a quick update that March 9-10 is ruled out, so we're expecting it to be the following weekend, March 16-17.

We'll confirm dates and venues as soon as possible.

Hi David,

Super excited about checking out BGBTB the weekend after next! I missed the Hamilton one last year...

Just wondering - will there be any chance of trying out games like Android, Android: Netrunner and Space Cadets? I don't see them on the Seriouslyboard website, but they're ones I'm interested in trying before buying :-) Tales of the Arabian Nights would be another one I'd like to try, actually...

Anyway, looking forward to it - see you there!

Hi Baz!

Space Cadets hasn't arrived in New Zealand yet but Android: Netrunner is bound to be in the library somewhere. (Great game, that one!)

See you at the event! thumbsup

I'm bringing Space Cadets, and probably Android: Netrunner too.

Will definitely be playing Space Cadets there, although I'm a bit worried about having to teach it!

I'm going to do what I always do: overcommit myself. But even so, I'd be keen to give Space Cadets a go, pending availability.

I can bring Tales of the Arabian Nights.

If anyone happens to have a copy of Terra Mystica I would like to try that one
