Hi, just a note to say hello and looking for a potential board game circle.

So far my gaming experience has tended to be civilisation builders like Mare Nostrum [I rate highly!], the original Civ [and the eagles game version], Java etc.
I also enjoy Carcassone, Attack[expanded and with some house rules], Tikal, Helas, Memoir '44 and a few other similar games.
I used to play a lot of risk and thats where it started realy but I am over it as I prefer Euro games with a minimum of luck based mechanics.
I also tend to steer clear of overly large or 'epic' games Civ being an exception I guess.
Anyway just saying Hi to Wellies, lovely town, great people etc
peace j

Welcome to the Geek and good luck finding a group! You can search for people based on country and stuff or search the forums for mentions of a group in New Zealand, or hope a countryman comes along and invites you

Hi John,

There are a number of boardgaming circles in Wellington, but if you go here:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/guild:367:moreinfo

You'll find some good starting points.

regards,
John

PS I forgot that BGG doesn't handle long URLs. You'll need to cut and paste the whole of that address above, rather than simply clicking on it.
Sorry about that.

PPS, John and Robert, welcome to Wellington, best wishes in finding a group to your liking. I'm usually at the Forum on Mondays myself, so make you go there do make yourselves known.

I just moved to Wellington myself and would like to find something similar.

Mare Nostrum I love as well (end game needs some work though). Pillars of the Earth, Struggle of Empires, Co-op games as well...

Let me know if you find anything.

Welcome aboard, John! You're definitely in the right town for board gaming. Wellycon will be there in two or three months and it's a great excuse to spend a whole weekend gaming.

Plenty of friendly gaming folk in the capital, too. No doubt one of them will pop by to say hello shortly. thumbsup

All Aboard's game night in Featherston, Wairarapa is this Friday 16th. All Aboard are in a flash new store, and there may be some Wellington folk coming over the hill.
