Hello all.

We are a couple of Brit boardgamers travelling around NZ for two months.

After spending the last few weeks in rural locations, we are hoping to find somewhere to get our fix.

We are going to be in Wellington from the 19th November for 3 nights - any recommendations of places to get a game of Agricola or similar?

After that our (rough) outline itinerary looks like this:

Picton - 22/23 Nov
Kaikoura - 24 to 27
Christchurch - 28 to 29
Greymouth - 30/1st Dec
Fox/Franz Glacier - 3-6 Dec
Haast - 7/8 Dec
Queenstown - 9-13 Dec
Te-Anau 14/15 Dec
Invercargill or somewhere between Queenstown and Dunedin(?) 16/17 Dec
Dunedin 18-21 Dec
Auckland (Devonport) 22-31st Dec

Are there any boardgamers who might host a game night along the way? Or can you recommend any game cafes / game group meetups?


Also any comments on how we should divide our time between the above places would be greatly appreciated - our route is pretty fixed as we're dependent upon buses.

Cheers.

Walt

When in Auckland, there's a group in Mt Albert that meets on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Tuesday of the month. Not sure what happens there around Christmas.

The group on the North Shore (closer to Devonport) has their last meeting on the 21st, the evening before you arrive, unfortunately.

Maybe another BGG user can help?

Hi - On saturday 19th I will be running my month games night. We generally play 45-1.30 hours games.

Games Night - Saturday 19nd November at BoardGameRentals
------------------------------------------------------------

Just a reminder about the up coming games night Saturday 19th Nov at
our house, 84 Happy Valley, Owhiro Bay, Wellington. We will kick off at
7.15pm. You can ring us on 04-3838-555 if you want more information.

You turn down a drive way and head up the road, over the bridge and then
up a short rise to our new house. There is lots of parking outside our
house so you won't need to park on the road.


Peter

Alas, I don't think you'll be coming anywhere near Tauranga, but if you do, get in touch. We host game nights every second Thursday, but we can usually round gamers up at the drop of a hat, so definitely contact us if you find yourself on the east coast of the North Island. thumbsup

It seems you are missing the beautiful North. If your route changes there may be an opportunity for games up in Whangarei. Cheers, Mark

Hi David, Thank you for your kind offer I'm in beautiful Tauranga right now - and for tonight only!...Unfortunately I won't have the chance to do any gaming - we're travelling around North island but with a non gamer in tow

Hi Mark, we had a very pleasant lunch stop in lovely Whangarei a couple of weeks ago (and thought the lonely planet and rough guide write ups totally undersold it). Really liked the beautiful North - we spent 5 nights in bachs in the Bay of Islands. Gorgeous!

cry We are suffering serious withdrawal symptoms. Popped into a toy/game shop in Maunganui and seriously considered dropping $155 on a copy of Agricola.

Ah yes, that'd be Just 4 Fun?

You certainly picked a great day (weather wise) for a visit to Mt Maunganui. I just hope you didn't go for a swim! wow

Thanks to the Monday Wellington gamers for a great night of gaming. Agricola and Dominion were played.
