Auckland Bridge Club, 273 Remuera Rd, Remuera, Auckland

Board Games By The Bay is a series of some of the largest modern board gaming events running in New Zealand since 2011, with currently two annual events in Auckland and one in Hamilton.

They bring together enthusiasts and players new to the scene in a relaxed, fun environment designed to make playing games as much fun as humanely possible. Participants enjoy catching up with old friends and making new ones, trying out different games or relaxing with familiar ones, entering into the free competitions, or even purchasing discounted games at the in-house Seriously Board store.

A library of various games are provided for free, allowing participants to try out new and different games, and in addition many people bring their own games and invite others to join them. We have a small number of elite volunteers (our friendly red shirts) who are pretty expert in teaching a wide variety of modern board games to new players.

In addition we usually have a number of New Zealand's very own game designers attending these events, who will be trialling new game prototypes, promoting new projects and taking the opportunity to connect with their end users (that's you!). Throughout the weekend we run free giveaways and spot prize quiz competitions for all participants.

Board Games By The Bay are family friendly although most of the attendee's are adults. Children under 12 years old can enter for free but must be accompanied by a supervising adult.

There will be ...
A board game library so you can play to your heart’s content!
Free prizes and giveaways!
Games for sale at discounted prices!
Game designers trialling new games!
Food for sale includes filled rolls for lunches and a pizza run for dinner on Saturday night, with confectionary on sale throughout the weekend.

You can turn up and pay on the day but its cheaper to register for the weekend in advance:

Day pass (door sale): $10.00
Weekend pass (online purchase): $15.00
Weekend pass (door sale): $20.00
Children (12 and under, supervised): $0.00
Annual pass (all three events): $40

Board Games By The Bay Auckland/Hamilton 20-21 May - only four weeks left before the biggest dedicated board gaming event in Auckland. People have joined us at previous events from all over the North Island, and we expect this to be another big one. Last year we had so many people we came close to turning late arrivals away as the venue was full. We will do everything we can to avoid this but preference will be given to those who are pre-enrolled - so grab an online ticket now! Online pre-sales will close Thursday 11 May and we will still have door sales - while there is room!

Board Games By The Bay Auckland 20-21 May - less than two weeks left before the first one of 2017. Its the largest board game focused event currently on the calendar in Auckland, and if last year is anything to go by its going to be the biggest yet. Last minute online registration is still available at the discounted price, otherwise register on the day. Don't forget a $40 season pass gets you year long access to all three events - but these won't be available for much longer!

Also this May Boardgames by the Bay event is hosting a tabletop prototyping meetup for designers through the http://gameartisans.nz (facebook page).

So come with prototypes you've had on the shelf the last few years and get your testing on!
