100 Games in the Play-to-Win
Borrow a game from the play-to-win table, give it a try, rate it on your phone after you've played, and then cross your fingers because these games will be given away as prizes on Sunday at 19:00.
Many games in the play-to-win event will be taught by volunteers (and sometimes even the designer), so don't worry if you don't know how to play!
NZ National Catan Tournament
Game play begins at 12:00 noon on Saturday.
The Championship will consist of 3 preliminary rounds and a final. All games will be played on the same day and are spaced 2 hours apart, so if you are skilled enough to get through to the final, the event will last approximately 8 hours in total (with breaks in between games).
Please ensure that you read the championship rules before the event. It is your responsibility to notify the Wellycon team if you are entering the event with friends or family.
Pandemic Survival Tournament
Game play begins at 10:30 on Saturday.
In Pandemic Survival, teams of two compete simultaneously to win the game or be the last team standing. Everyone’s setup is the same: roles, starting board setup, and preset decks. However, based on your team’s choices, your individual game will play out differently from other players’ games.
Turns have a time limit, which means you must act quickly and efficiently to discover the winning strategy. Places are strictly limited, so reserve you spot today.
Blood on the Clocktower
Blood on the Clocktower is a bluffing game enjoyed by 5 to 20 players on opposing teams of Good and Evil, overseen by a Storyteller player who conducts the action and makes crucial decisions. It's a social game of bluffing and deduction similar to Werewolf of Mafia.
Available tickets: 15
Start time: Sunday 2:30pm
Duration: 90 minutes
Dungeons & Dragons
If you’ve ever wanted a chance to try out Dungeons & Dragons, but don’t want to commit to a regular campaign, and/or don’t want to risk your first time being a bad experience, then this is the event for you!
Don't miss out on a fantasy filled fun time, there's limited seats, so reserve your spot at the table today!
Duration: 3 hours

1100+ Games in the Library
Our games library is sponsored by Game Kings.
Looking for a game to play? Borrow one of ours. Want a recommendation? Ask a volunteer. Need help learning a game? Put a 'need help' flag on your table. Looking for other players? There's a flag for that, too.
With 1100+ games, we've got you covered.
We'll have a great assortment of food trucks at Wellycon 2021. On Saturday, look for Dutchy's Burger Joint, Taco Addicts, and The Hungry Monkey. Dutchy's will be back on Sunday and will be joined by Indo PLUS, Kickflip Pizza, and FruitScoop Gelato.
Need your caffeine fix? Tamper Street Cafe will be doing barista coffees both days, and Wellycon volunteers will have fizzy drinks and snacks for sale.
Of course, you are also welcome to bring your own food and drink.
Stop by the concierge sponsored by Counter Culture or ask a volunteer (look for their green shirts) if you need any help. That's what we're there for!
Buy / Sell / Trade
You're welcome to bring games to buy, sell, or trade. We'll have shelving in the entryway for this very purpose. Pricing stickers are available from the front desk; proceeds benefit Wellycon.
