Sometimes you just have to grab the moment and when I got access to a great venue for multiple weekends of board gaming I took the plunge and It's Your Move was born.

It's Your Move is a weekend event of board and card gaming - 12/13 July 2014 in Island Bay, Wellington. The day starts at 10am and closes at 10pm.

If you enjoyed Wellycon and want more then join us by visiting and registering at boardgamerentals.co.nz/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=50

Join us to enjoy;
- a day or weekend of great games for all experience levels
- multiple prize draws over the weekend
- access to the library of over 200+ games from the BoardGameRentals.co.nz rental library. You are most welcome to bring your own games - just make sure they are well named
- Onsite shop with a wide range of games available at sale prices with EFTPOS.
- A venue with good parking and bus access, and take aways and a super market in walking distance.
- 20% off for early bird registrations on-line. Get the whole weekend from only $13.60 until 5 July.

Venue: Wellington South Baptist Church and Hall, 284 The Parade, Island Bay.

Buses: The Island bay #1 comes right past the church from the railway station on a 20 mins timetable. If you are coming from Miramar area you will need to change at Newtown.

Day 1: Modern board games.
Day 2: Modern board games and a family focused games session 1pm -4pm. We will bring our school and children's rental gaming selection

We have 70-80 places available for each day. If you can't make this weekend there will be another on 4/5 October 2014.

Children under 14 are welcome but must be with a supervising adult.

So now It's Your Move, we'd love to see you...

Just doing a restock of games for the library and for sale....

Anything of interest your'd want to play? Also we'll have a good stock of x-wing minis including the latest releases and I'm also working on a couple of tournaments with appropriate prizes (x-wing and hopefully King of Tokyo).

I'd love to try Mascarade or Nations...

Do you have any sneaky sources other than PixelPark? There are SO many games I'd love to try that they haven't brought to NZ yet

So many good games... cry

Among the Stars is being released in the USA by Stronghold Games at GenCon in August it seems. Higher likelihood of it making its way down here.

hi Jo,

I'm looking at getting most of those in via import order. Not all are available.

Also I'm working on making It's Your Move a very successful board gaming weekend. I have ordered more tables and chairs and just added a pre-order option for both lunch and diner for both days for those how have yet to sign up.

Those who already have should have got an email from me asking if they want to take advantage of this option.

Peter

So Jo,

We should get CV, Nations, The little Prince in - Blueprints is just too hard at the moment and Among the stars is in preorder.

So take your pick with a few others as well.... Steam park for one.

Just been totting up the prizes and there is over $400 in gaming give aways at Its Your Move. I think there is about a 1 in 6-7 chance of winning some of the prizes.

Hi all,

Jo the games have all arrived that I could get and for those into King of Tokyo - at the tournament we'll be giving away a free-pre order on King of New York so the winner will be first in line to grab the new classic when it arrives later this year .

I want to thank everyone who made it a special weekend. There was lots of gaming and people had a good time.

It was extra special as my mum has been very sick and on the Sunday morning I was called to her bed at her rest home as we thought she would die. She did not and recovered to rally for a few more days. It was nice to go from their to a day where people where having fun and enjoying each other's company is very good natured manner.

They are nice memories and have helped my through this week were my beloved mother finally passed away on Thursday morning.

Thanks again to all who came.

Peter

Best wishes to you and your family Peter. I came across this today from BGG and 'Shut up and sit down'. It is a week after the posters' father died and this is his moving tribute, it's described as Probably the best board game video ever, and I agree.
