Hobart Winter Gamesfest

HoGS seventh annual wintertime weekend-long games extravaganza in 2017 is on 5-6 August. Following on from our usual First Friday night playing games at Lenah Valley Community Hall, on Saturday-Sunday we’ll be taking over the entire building and hosting fun and games for 31 additional hours!


Saturday, 5 August — doors open at 10 am
Sunday, 6 August — doors close at 5 pm

Lenah Valley Community Hall
22 Creek Road, Lenah Valley

Are you new to strategy board games (think ‘Risk on steroids’)? This is your perfect opportunity to escape the winter’s chill and explore the many varieties of strategy games available. HoGS members bring a huge number of their own games to WGF, and we’re more than happy to let you borrow one — or teach you how to play!

Special events:

Our WGF wizards are busily planning events that will tie in nicely with two days of playing games. These include —

  • trade table — bring your old games to sell or trade
  • tournaments and raffles
  • meals available on site and information on cafes/takeaways nearby
  • and more

Watch this space and our Facebook page as we firm up plans and can share more details with you.

A gold coin contribution to help cover the costs of running the event is appreciated.

Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult.

We hope to see you this year at Winter Gamesfest!
