What we're about

If you are a fan of anything Sci-Fi, Fantasy, superheroes, graphic novels, anime, video / board games or zombie related things, then this is the group for you!

Some of our current favourites include The Mandalorian, His Dark Materials, The Witcher, and all things MCU & DC. And of course we also love everything Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Dr Who... the list is endless!

Meetup events consist of getting together for social nights or to watch TV shows and movies together; there's a Book Club, regular Board Game nights, Quizzes, Sunday Brunch and once a year there's The Amazing Scifi Race! Basically, we offer a place where you can hang out and argue with other Scifiers about all kinds of nerdy stuff that other people just don't understand.

We aim to be an inclusive group and welcome all genders, ethnicities, beliefs, sexual orientations and ages (note: all members must be over 18). If you don't feel comfortable with this, then this group isn't for you.

SciFriday - social night for new and regular members

Location visible to members

Join us for our regular social meet-up in the city where new and regular members get together for coffee and chat about all things sci-fi, fantasy and whatever geekiness takes the mood. Meet at the coffee shop (previously called Gloria Jeans, but they are changing their name to Good Time Coffee and the new name isn't up yet) on the corner of Victoria and Federal St (right by the Skytower) at 7:30pm. We'll be in the lounge upstairs. After that, some of us will head to The Fiddler Irish Pub for some casual drinks starting at around 9pm. Newbies - if you're new to the group and feeling shy, just bring a friend along. You don't need to be a hard-core sci-fi fan - anyone with a passing interest is welcome and we love meeting new people!

Board Games and Intro to D&D

Cakes n Ladders (Board Game Cafe)

Please join us at Cakes n' Ladders on Symonds Street from 6.30 - 9.30pm for some board games and/or an introduction to D&D! BOARD GAMES We play a range of games. Typically we'll start with something light while everyone arrives and then split into groups 4-6 people, choosing varied games on the night. These are usually 1-2 hour long & fairly strategic. INTRODUCTION TO D&D Have you ever wanted to try D&D, but have never had the opportunity? Join Serena for your chance at it. She'll run an introductory level D&D 5E experience focused on having fun and learning the mechanics of the game. All skill levels are welcome. LOGISTICS Cakes n Ladders charge $1.50 per person per half hour (rounded up), payable when you leave. Their cakes are delicious if you get hungry. We generally start gaming around 6.30pm. If you can’t make 6.30 but still want to join us, please comment with your approximate arrival time. We can sometimes arrange games to finish when you arrive, but it does depend on how many people attend & what we end up playing. If you would like to play D&D, speak to Serena on the night. First in first served as numbers are capped at 5. All supplies will be, well, supplied (however feel free to bring your own dice, pencils etc), including character sheets for time purposes. If you would like to create your own character, get in touch with Serena beforehand. Look for the Auckland Sci-Fi signs on the tables, or ask the owner to point us out on the night. Look forward to seeing you there!
