New Zealand's board gaming roadshow is back!

It is with great excitement that we announce Board Games By The Bay for 2012.

We received great feedback from the 2011 events in Auckland and Tauranga, so we'll be returning there in 2012, and we'll also have an event in Hamilton before the year is out.

We'll have the usual: a games library, games to win, games for sale, plus New Zealand's first public screenings of board game documentary Going Cardboard.

This is a great opportunity to get together with fellow gamers for 16 hours of gaming across 2 days - or to bring non-gamers into a family friendly environment to experience modern board games for the first time.

The 2012 dates are as follows:
Auckland: July 21-22 (10am to 6pm each day)
Tauranga: September 29-30 (10am to 6pm each day)
Hamilton: November 10-11 (10am to 6pm each day)

Ticket prices are as follows:
Day pass: $10
Weekend pass (online only): $15
2012 pass (all three events): $40
Primary school kids and younger: Free

For more details, and to snare online discounts, head over to http://boardgamesbythebay.org.nz/

You can also join the BGBTB guild right here on BGG!

The timing of this convention is perfect! Just before a really busy stretch at work. Nothing like a weekend of gaming to relax.
With Wellycon this weekend, winter is a great time to be a board gamer in NZ.

@ David
Why not bring 'Going Cardboard' at Wellycon?

Might make a trip north for one of those events.

We had to get permission to screen it publicly - we're too close to Wellycon to get permission and also organise a screen, etc.

We'll have copies of it for sale at Wellycon, though.

And we'd love to see you at one of the BGBTB events! thumbsup

It's $29 on the website. We haven't finalised our Wellycon pricelist just yet.

Andrew come to Auckland! I'll have my collection unpacked by then after relocating it from the UK. perhaps some of these (inclusding a couple of rare ones) could tempt you north?

7 Wonders with Leaders expansion
Goa
Fresco
Airlines Europe
Bausack
Medina
Talisman (with expansions) and painted figures
Star Wars: The Queens Gambit
Star Wars: Epic Duels

(those last few won't be risked in the library)

Although if you choose Tauranga I could still bring some of these down

Well, with just under 6 weeks until the first BGBTB event of the year, we've got our first eager gamers who have already purchased tickets, and a few keen folk who have bought the 2012 pass, meaning their third event is FREE compared to door prices.

We strongly recommend you purchase tickets via the website if you want to save a few pennies, but you are of course welcome to just turn up on the day.

Make sure you spread the word to other gamers or folk who could potentially be converted into our wonderful hobby - Board Games By The Bay is an ideal event for newbies and veterans alike!

We're looking into having mobile EFTPOS with us given how successful and useful it was at Wellycon, plus a couple of other small ideas are in the works, so watch this space!

I will be coming to the Auckland event (and Tauranga and Hamilton if I can secure accommodation). I just put in an order for some stuff from Steve Jackson Games for some Munchkin stuff (like the new Munchkin Conan set, and some other stuff released earlier this year), I am hoping it will arrive in time but it may not.

Either way I will bring a lot of the promo bookmarks and cards along for anyone who wants them (I am really overflowing with them) as well as some other stuff to give away.

Hi Mathew - great stuff! We look forward to adding them to the prize tables as giveaways. If you want to bundle them together in any way, feel free to do that. And if there are enough, we'd love to spread them across the three events.

We have some exciting news on the prize front, which I'll be mentioning tomorrow.

Are we going to do a "wish to play" geeklist like there was for Wellycon?

Will it involve me signing up to play just about everything, but missing out on almost every organised game?

I'll set one up in the BGBTB Guild - or here - on the morrow, unless you beat me to it! whistle

I'm keen to try either Eclipse or Sid Meir's Civ. Do you fancy hosting one of these Epics and teaching it at same time (will read rules beforehand of course)?

Ok, with anything you add to the list that you don't own. Make sure to mention you won't be bringing it and that you would like someone to bring it in the item.

If Infiltration is out by then I will have that too.
