HoGS Winter Gamesfest 9 comes to you the penultimate winter weekend — that’s when we take over the whole of Lenah Valley Community Hall to play strategy tabletop games all weekend long.
WGF9 is open to the public, so come along and bring your friends and family for a weekend of tabletop game fun. All we ask is a gold coin donation to help cover hall hire costs.
This year’s theme is ‘Back to Basics‘, meaning we won’t interrupt you for tournaments or door prizes or other events.
Instead, you’ll have the opportunity to play as many games as you want (pretty much) for as long as you want (mostly).
We will be joined once again by The Hobart League of Competitive Gamers, who will be providing information about their group, as well as some ‘retro’ games for all to try out.
Also joining us will be the Reign Absolute team, who will be demonstrating their game throughout the weekend.
If you’d like to host a long game (e.g. Twilight Imperium, Dominant Species, an 18x game, Here I Stand, etc.) and you need players, post on Facebook or get in touch and we’ll be sure to help you get the word out
This year, WGF9 is BYO in every respect — you’re welcome to bring your own food along so you don’t have to leave at mealtime. Also keep in mind that UberEats, Dial-a-Meal and Domino’s all deliver to the hall.
Children are welcome, but they must be accompanied by an adult.
