Board in Palmy is a chance to play games over a weekend-long event. We invite both Palmerston North locals and those from out of town to join the fun!

There will be prizes, free parking, friendly staff, tournaments and a library of games to play. It doesn't matter if you're new to modern board games, or a seasoned player, you are welcome in our gaming community.

What Board Games do you play?
The games on offer are often called ‘modern board games’. These are games which favour skill over luck and which rarely eliminate players. The strategy isn't typically as heavy as games like chess so the experience is also a social one (with a chat over the board and cards) as well as one of the tactics.

There is a wide range of gameplay including co-operative games where you play against the board, puzzle-solving games, card games, negotiating games, games where you build stuff, games where you think you're working together but there's a traitor in your midst and the list goes on...

Who’s it for?
The average attendee is 20-50yrs, and some of them even bring their kids! Children 12 or younger can enter for free but must be accompanied by a supervising adult. Most games are recommended aged 8+ years.

If you’ve never played a ‘modern’ board game before, we are having a free Beginners Corner where we’ll teach you some ‘intro’ games to see if you enjoy the hobby.
