Casual Get Together

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • A chance to say 'hi' and play a few board games of whatever takes anyone's fancy.

    Once we've got a few members and an idea of what we might be playing we can have a think about a venue.

    Let us know what you'd like to play below.  All suggestions welcome.

    Ok, I can host up to 10 people, address is in Hillcrest area, Tonight (at a pinch), Sunday or Monday, from 6-10pm (I suggest). I have plenty of games or bring your own. What evening? Matt, do you want to change the details on this meetup once evening has been finalised?

    I have plenty of space and heaps of games and would be happy to host a meet up. I've never been to one before so what's the process. Although I used to run the Waikato Boardgamer club...

      I believe anyone can create a new meetup event, you just have to get a total of 2 other members to RSVP yes, before your Meetup gets 'announced' to the wider group.

    Ok, I know i said my place was a bit on the small side, but guess what, 'small' trumps nothing at all. Please PM me if you have a game we can all play, and i'll sort a small game at my place.

    Hey everyone!
    We don't have our boardgames yet - but when they arrive we look forward to sharing and playing some games with some fellow boardgamegeeks :-)

    I've been terrible at doing anything with this group, but if anyone wants to suggest a time and place for some games, feel free. :)

    Alternatively, Id be quite happy to chip in with a few others to buy a new board game, as i don't own any myself, and have no idea what anyone else already has. I'd offer to host also, however my 2 bedroom inner city apartments just a bit on the small side, for anymore than 4 people at one time.

    i'd play just about anything, carn't recall a board or card game I ever disliked. just don't have any of my own.
