Waikato University Board Game Club
Where: Gaura/Namaste in the SUB building at The University of Waikato, Hamilton
When: 6:30pm every Tuesday night
Notes: Though we are a student club, anyone is welcome to come along and play. Bring your own games or play those provided by other members.
LOCAL GAME GROUPS: DUNEDIN
Dunedin Board Gamers (aka NextGen Games)
Where: 71 Viscount Road
When: 7:30pm every Wednesday night, weekends and other times via email list
Contact: Mark Hodge (markhodgeNZ@gmail.com)
Notes: Visitors are always welcome, from beginners to experts. We have hundreds of modern boardgames available and don't charge any fees. Our emphasis is on fun. Regulars range in age from 20′s to 50′s, and there are usually 15 to 20 people on the night. See http://nextgengames.nz for an idea of what games are commonly played, house rules, and other advice. We also have an email list for announcements (usually for arranging boardgames on other days, but also movies, BBQ’s, parties and other get-togethers – occasionally even freebies being given away!). Unusually for Dunedin we have full insulation so a heatpump keeps things nice and cosy even on the coldest Dunedin winter evening . Contact us if you would like to come along. Rides can often be arranged for visitors.
