Our current event:

Wellycon XII 1st & 2nd June 2019

Wellycon is NZ’s Biggest, Friendliest and entering our 12th year, longest running board games convention!

Come along to experience everything from light-hearted fun games to intense strategic battles

This year we have some surprises coming for you including world-wide game releases!

News

This year Wellycon has a new location:

Wellington Indian Association (Inc)
48 Kemp St, Kilbirnie, Wellington 6022

This new location allows a less crowded layout, all on one level making it easier to find a table to game together and ensure you get the most of what Wellycon has to offer!

Volunteering @ Wellycon

Wellycon couldn’t be the fun, friendly event that we strive for without our amazing volunteers. This year looking to be a big one, with a new venue, new events and the biggest library of games ever. With all this, comes an upgraded recognition for volunteering, with rewards from $5 Wellybucks through to free entry for the event!

If this excites you as much as it does us, sign up to be a volunteer now! Full details available here

Food on-site

This year we are being catered by Ngaio Scout Troupe as part of their Jamboree fundraising and community service. They are providing a variety of food throughout the day including:

  • Baking
  • Toasted Sandwiches
  • Savouries
  • Soup (vegan)
  • American HotDogs

A main meal for Saturday night can be either pre-ordered with your Wellycon ticket, or a limited quantity may be available for sale on the night.

The meal options are:

  • Butter Chicken and Rice
  • Thai Chickpea Curry and Rice (Vegan, DF, GF, contains peanuts)
  • Macaroni & Cheese (Kid-sized portion)

As always at Wellycon, you are welcome to bring your own food from outside the venue, but we hope you join us in supporting this worthy fundraiser.

Late Night!

Wanna stay up late? Or perhaps you want to arrange a specific session with your closest key associates for that after-hours thrill? This session is for the truly addicted!

That’s right, the ever-popular late night session is back again!

Stay after everyone has gone home and have full access to the game library. With limited numbers of tickets available, the world (or the games library) is your oyster.

What’s On @ Wellycon?

We’re working on the schedule now and plan to have an update soon! Some highlights include:

  • Continual Codenames – rolling sessions of codenames will be set up as a walk-in walk-out event set up for the entire con
  • Welcome Games presented by Cheeky Parrot Games
