Hobart Winter Gamesfest


 HoGS Winter Gamesfest returns to Lenah Valley Community Hall, 22 Creek Road on 4-5 August 2018. Following on from our usual First Friday night meet-up, on Saturday morning at 10am we’ll take over the entire building and host fun and games right through to closing on Sunday at 5pm.

Are you interested in strategy tabletop games (think ‘Risk on steroids’)? This is your perfect opportunity to escape the winter’s chill and explore the many varieties of 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. These include —

  • trade table — bring your old games to sell or trade
  • an opportunity to meet a game designer and playtest a brand-new game he’s developing
  • mini-tournaments and the chance to win a great new game
  • door prizes right round the clock — you need not be present to win a daytime draw
  • information and representatives from Competitive Gamers Hobart
  • meals available on site
  • overnight lock-in from midnight-6 am for keen gamers
  • and much more…

We’ll roll out details throughout Juy, so you might want to bookmark this space and check back from time to time to see what other goodies we have in store.

On entry, 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.
