The Hawkes Bay Geeks Guild is a community for likeminded geeks, nerds, otakus 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!
Sign up to our Facebook group and join in on the discussions
Our most common meet up is a weekly board game night at Dave’s Place. People usually start turning up about 6:30, and we play some smaller games while people arrive (Coup, Love Letter, No Thanks). After that, there are a few tables set up in a couple of rooms and we split up to play longer games, which people may have brought along. We usually end up in a big group at the end of the night and play a group game (2 Rooms and a Boom, One Night Ultimate Werewolf, or Resistance).

NZNOG is the New Zealand Network Operators Group
“The Nog” is our annual conference which provides both an opportunity to exchange technical information, and a high-value opportunity for NZ’s networking staff to ‘network’ amongst themselves. This is New Zealand’s primary technical networking conference. The event is unique in New Zealand and attracts technical, skilled individuals with a genuine interest in Internet operations and Internetworking technologies.
The conference is low priced and has a strong technical focus with the aim and history of getting a strong turnout of technical personnel from New Zealand Internet orientated companies.

The board games are coming back to Hawke’s Bay in the last weekend of August!
Our goal is to encourage people of all ages and skill levels to come and enjoy a wide range of board games – Mars colonization, space cowboys, trading, social deception, puzzle solving, and war gaming – we’ve got it all.
A large gaming library will be available at the venue, alongside several casual and competitive tournaments, spot prizes, raffles and stalls. And if you like escape rooms, we’ve got a special surprise for you! Keep an eye on the event and the newsfeed – we will keep you posted with the coming up agenda.
Our friendly volunteers will be there to talk you through the games you haven’t played before and make sure you meet like-minded people and have a great time.
