WHAT IS WINTER/SUMMER RETREAT?
In a nutshell, the Retreats are a 3 day gaming holiday held at a regional recreation facilities. For the past 20 years, LXG (and LXG in previous incarnations) has run annual getaway weekends (open to club members and non-club members) for the purpose of playing tabletop games. This is purely a fun, social weekend with a couple organised events (such as Magic: the Gatherin, Ultimate Werewolf and Twilight Imperium.

Current turnout is around 70 people. Everyone is welcome – the kids have a great time!

WHAT USUALLY HAPPENS?
The camp is available to use from 3pm on Friday. Many people take the day off from work and arrive sometime that afternoon. Others travel up after work and get there around 8pm. There is the opportunity to car pool if you haven’t got transport. You stay at the facility until 2pm on the Sunday and then head on back home.

In between is a whole lot of gaming, especially those longer games you don’t often get time for (e.g. Twilight Imperium). There are also some popular ‘parlour’ games for large groups (e.g. Ultimate Werewolf). As well as gaming there is usually a pilgrimage to the local tourist traps to buy wine and local produce.

All meals are included in the price:
– dinner on Friday
– breakfast/morning tea/lunch/afternoon tea/dinner on Saturday
– breakfast/morning tea/lunch on Sunday/
There is also bottomless tea/coffee/juice/pre-mixed cordial. If you have special dietary requirements they can be catered for.
