Hi,

I hope people don't mind me setting up a sort of calendar thread on here to post about gaming related events in the greater Auckland area. I keep hearing about things and I would like to share them so others know about them. Plus so I can keep track of what's coming up so I don't miss out on an event I want to visit

I'll set up a month post on here which will just list dates and names of events. And add posts with more details. So feel free to add posts which I can add to the month post.

Which has links to the multiple Facebook pages. In fact Facebook and Meetup have been huge for expanding the North Shore groups numbers. It's amazing how few gamers in Auckland actually use BGG regularly.

Usually about 10:30 is a wrap. But some people playing long games do play longer (we have the keys so no time limit)Cost is gold coin donation to the little yellow jar on the game table.

BattleCry Monthly Games Day
Sunday 14th September (2nd Sunday of the month)
Location: Auckland University Commerce A building
Time: 10am to 5pm
Cost: $5

The BattleCry Incorporated Society team would like to invite you all along to their September Games Day.

Board games, card games, roleplaying, raffles, Bring and Buy tables and much more. Come along for a fun day of gaming.

The BattleCry Convention Board Games Library will be on site for people to try out. Or bring along a game you want to share. So loads of space to try a range of board games.

We are holding a special Star Wars X-Wing Tournament. Bring along 100 points of rebels or alliance ships and play some games. No extra cost to take part. Cool prizes up for grabs. There will be a learn to play area if you want to come along and give it a try. Some ships and gear for loan available on the day.

If you want to try some roleplaying the local RPG folks who run the Dungeons and Dragons roleplaying games at BattleCry, and the Pathfinder Society folks who run the Pathfinder games at BattleCry will also be there running games for people to jump into. Come along and give it a try. Anyone playing a RPG game will get a free miniature.

There will be a big area set up as a Bring and Buy area. This will be set up like our Convention Bring and Buy tables. Bring along gaming items you are looking to sell, put a price and name on them and pop them on the table for the day. A great place to grab a bargain. We will also have a number of special Auctions and special items we will be selling off to fundraise so watch the Facebook page or website for more details.

We will have some drinks and snacks on sale during the day. So bring some coins.

And during the day we will draw out names of people who have won prizes for attending. No extra cost involved.

Open to all, please share this.

All profit from this event goes towards BattleCry 2015.

Thanks to the America Club for helping making this happen.

* If you aren't too sure where Commerce A building is. Check out this map. It's building 114 right in the middle of Sector 100. And there is a carparking building off Grafton Road called the Owen G Glenn Building which is just $6 for Sunday.
