What we're about

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.

All the goodness of a board gaming club, with the large selection of Counter Culture's games on hand. As well as their amazing food and drink on site. We have the back section reserved for Wellington On Board - just come up to one of those tables an introduce yourself. And if ordering food and drink with your game pass, they've also given us $2 off group discount (does not apply if you're not ordering any food or drinks). This is the continuation of the Wellington Games Forum, believed to be NZ's oldest games club. Now with the amazingness of Counter Culture and the Wellington On Board meetup group, there's no need to run it as an independent entity. With Counter Culture's second anniversary, there's a couple of rules updates: * Standard cafe and bar rules apply: Don't bring your own food or drinks, do wear tidy clothes, and wear shoes (Apparently people need reminding of this). * Please make sure your games are finished by 10pm. * We have the only back section reserved for this Meetup. Other tables are regularly reserved for other bookings, and may be just empty because the group hasn't arrived yet. If you want another table, please check with the barstaff to see if they have any spare. * Same applies to tables that are just vacated by another group. Please check with the barstaff first, even if it's later in the evening.

Welcome wednesday

Location visible to members

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.
