What we're about

Halifax Game Night is a board game/card game group sponsored by Hal-Con Sci-Fi, Fantasty and Gaming Convention. We welcome new players, with or without experience... bring your favourite games, or just show up and play somebody else's!

We meet all throughout the month at various locations and game store. Or if you want to be especially daring, become an organizer yourself and create events all over the place!

Our members bring all sorts of games - check out http://www.boardgamegeek.com 'Hot Games' sidebar, to get an idea of the kind of games typically played at the meetups. As well, check out the Watch it Played (http://www.youtube.com/user/WatchItPlayed/videos?flow=grid&view=1) video series on YouTube to get a great idea about how these types of games play out.

We have physical space for upwards of 30 players or so depending on the venue, and anywhere between 6 and 35 people attend any given meetup, running 2 - 7 tables per night.

Check out the calendar section to find out when and where the next meetup is taking place! Hope to see you there.

We also support various other gaming organizations in the city such as Let it Roll, Gelatinous Dudes and others. If you have a event you want listed, you can become a member and suggest it or email one of the Leadership Team and they can add it for you!

Warhammer Conquest: Thursday Night WAR! @GPP

In Warhammer 40,000: Conquest, a two-player Living Card Game, you take the part of a warlord, leading your armies into battle against your opponent in a bid to claim glorious victory. Even as you lead your bravest warriors into battle, you must plan for the future, establishing a presence on planets before the tides of war consume them in blood and fire. You must conquer the Traxis sector by strength of arms for in the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war. Players across the globe have been swept up in the excitement for this new game from Fantasy Flight, and early adopters of the game are now gathering at Games People Play to explore their inner warlord! New players are welcome to get in on the fun! The Halifax LCG community is welcoming, happy to teach the game, and will have some extra cards on hand for those interested in seeing what the excitement is all about! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EXfeEGuxwk
