What we're about

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

COVID-19 update - as of 21 March 2020 NZ is in Level 2 status for dealing with COVID-19. This means gatherings over 100 are banned, however we advise that, given the face-2-face nature and cross-handling of game pieces that are inherent in board games, it would be a good idea to cancel any sizable gathering in case anyone has been exposed without knowing it. I'm sure you would hate to be the person who introduced it around the community accidentally. However, we would encourage you to get in touch with others in the group and set up remote games via a remote meeting app of your choice (see below), where you play 'together' but in your own space. Board games are a great way to while away the time, and it's important to stay in touch.

If you have any doubt, stay home, follow the Ministry of Health guidelines and if you get together physically wash your hands before and after playing. Wishing you the best during this real life edition of Pandemic we're playing,

Kia Kaha,

Ceedee

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.

A regular get together for casual gaming - there is an extensive range of games brought by attendees each time. We're a friendly bunch and love to see new people! Feel free to bring any of your games you'd like to play. We play a variety of games depending on who is at each session, from quick 15 minute fillers to 2 hour chunky ones for those who want.

If you're a newbie please make yourself known to the host and they'll make sure you're welcomed and looked after.

There are usually about 20-30 people at a session, but the regulars do not answer 'yes' to every meetup, so you are likely to meet more than just those listed on the right -->

Everyone welcome, the more the merrier, feel free to bring a friend.

Tea and coffee are provided, you are also welcome to bring anything you'd like to eat or drink.

NOTE: - gold coin entry towards hire of the hall, so please remember to bring your $2.
