Wellycon 2020 Schedule

 

Each year we run many events during the weekend to keep you entertained. There are chances to win great prizes, compete with others and generally have fun!

 

Special Events at Wellycon 2020

  • World Releases – we are the first in the world to be able to play these New Releases!  Wellycon is the Southern Hemisphere release and Spiel at Essen, Germany( the biggest boardgame convention in the world) is the Northern Hemisphere release. It’s a chance to get your hands on a game not yet available in stores.

  • Tournaments – Pandemic and Orleans Tournaments courtesy of our sponsors
  • Late night – after hours gaming ’til the wee hours, with Pizza
  • Intro to D&D – an experienced Dungeon Master (DM) will lead you through an adventure.  These were a hit last year and were fully booked out!
