What we're about

The Hawkes Bay Geeks Guild is a community for like-minded geeks, nerds, and gamers to meet and hang out (online and in the real world).
If you like board games, card games, video games, role play, superhero movies, comic books, anime, sci-fi, fantasy, or anything geeky, this is the guild for you!

Our story

In July of 2015, we started a group on Meet Up and called it the Hawkes Bay Geeks Guild.

Our goal was to get three or four members so we could play board games and go see geeky movies together. It grew rapidly and soon my dream of making a couple of friends was replaced with a dream to create a community. A Facebook group was created which now has over 1000 members and see regular posts about all things geeky.

Monday Night Board Games became a popular, well-loved event and was joined by an arsenal of other events like family outings, movie nights, dinner events, an annual quiz night, road trips and scavenger hunts. In 2018 we hosted our first ever Baycon; a weekend long board game convention and soon after that, the guild became an official incorporated society.

With each passing year the guild continues to grow. More friendships are formed, new board games are discovered and more discussions over ‘which superhero would totally kick some other superhero’s butt‘ are had. The goal keeps evolving and growing with the community and I’m excited to see what the future holds for us.
