We've had a lot of people asking what is happening with BGBTB this year. The truth is (and the reason we haven't been posting), is that we just don't know! We would love to be hosting you all at our events, but it is still a bit difficult to make plans in the current environment. Even with the recent relaxation of some of the red traffic light rules, we don't feel that the nature of our events really allows adequate social distancing.
We are planning at least one event this year, a special Auckland event in association with the Cancer Society of New Zealand. This will be a bigger event, with more than just board gaming going on. BGBTB will be hosting the board gaming section of this event. This is likely to be in August/September, and we will have more info for you closer to the time.
There is a chance for a Hamilton event later this year, however it will depend on how the Covid situation develops, and of course venue availability. At this stage, it is unlikely that we will get to the South Island this year.
While we can't hold these large events right now, we encourage you to reach out to smaller local gaming groups, and of course keep supporting our wonderful sponsors. Rest assured that we are missing these events as much as you are, and can't wait to bring BGBTB back with a bang!
WHAT IS 'BOARD GAMES BY THE BAY'?
Board Games By The Bay (BGBTB) is a series of epic tabletop gaming events run each year in New Zealand.
Since 2011, these weekend events have brought together the community to learn and play modern board, card and dice games in a friendly, social environment.
