Bringing people together with boardgames For the 10th year in the row Wellington Girls College has hosted Wellycon, New Zealand’s biggest, fun, friendly board game convention. Over the course of Queen’s Birthday weekend more than 400 people from aged 6 to 60 got together to play board games, join various workshops and compete against each other in tournaments. “Wellycon is, and always has been, about creating community through games,” Ceedee from the Wellycon committee said.
