Welcome to Wellington On Board, the home of all types of gaming events in the capital.

This is a friendly gaming group with the aim of enjoying meeting people and having fun.  Anything to do with gaming - playing, designing, creating, rating, collecting - we're into it.  Board games, role playing, table top gaming, war-gaming, whatever your favourite flavour - here you can meet people who are into the same things.

Gaming is one of the growing social activities as people realise the joy of getting to know friends or total strangers a little better over a great board game.  Regular game sessions happen alternate Wednesdays which are aimed at introducing people who haven't yet tried the modern games to something new.  Each session has a host who will welcome you and introduce you to the people and the games.  If you've only played well-known games like Monopoly, Risk and Scrabble, you will find a lot of the games we play at the club unfamiliar, but we are a welcoming bunch and will always be happy to teach games to new players. If you're more familiar with them then feel free to bring your own games along.

If you don't see a suitable session - set one up using 'suggest'! We're always up for a game.
