Board Games By The Bay Auckland is well and truly on the horizon! 

With just one week to go, the November event is shaping up to be the biggest and best BGBTB yet!

On top of what regular attendees will have grown accustomed to – great gaming, prizes, giveaways, and games for sale at below-internet prices – we are proud to announce the below exciting features:

MARTIN WALLACE
Yes, he hasn’t got sick of us just yet! Martin will be attending, fresh from SPIEL in Essen and will have prototypes for his upcoming designs. If you want to meet the award winning designer, play one of his prototypes, or get an autograph, he’ll be happy to oblige.

ANDROID: NETRUNNER AND STAR WARS: X-WING TOURNAMENTS
On the Saturday, (November 23), we will be hosting an Android: Netrunner tournament. On the Sunday, (November 24), we will be hosting a Star Wars: X-Wing tournament. There will be prizes up for grabs, including alternative art cards for the top 16 ranked players of each tourney. Spaces are limited and online pre-registration is absolutely essential if you want to be involved. Check out the tournament details here:

Star Wars: X-Wing http://boardgamesbyt...-wing-tourna...

TWO ROOMS AND A BOOM
This fantastic big group event went off with a bang (ha!) at our Palmerston North event with a 28 player game! We want Auckland gamers to experience this simple social game. It’s easy to learn, and only takes 15 minutes to play, so clear some space in your schedule on the Saturday evening.

PRE-ORDER PRIZE
We want to encourage you to pre-register your attendance – that will help us to prepare enough lunch and confectionary to keep you well fed and happy – so on top of a 25% discount on weekend ticket prices, we’re going to give away one copy of the Collector’s Edition of Discworld: Ankh-Morpork, autographed by designer Martin Wallace. This version of the game was never available for sale in New Zealand stores, so register for BGBTB to get in the draw! (Already registered? You’re already in the draw!)

We look forward to seeing you there, soaking up 20 hours of gaming goodness!

November 23-24
Door charge: $10 per day
Pre-ordered tickets: $10 for one day, $15 for the weekend
Gamers aged 12 and under: FREE (but must be accompanied by an adult)

The Board Games By The Bay series of events are New Zealand’s fastest growing board game events, with more than 350 people already having attended events in Tauranga, Auckland, Hamilton, and Palmerston North so far in 2013.
