Romance of the Seven Worlds

The fourth megagame to be hosted by the Wellington Megagame Collective will be Romance of the Seven Worlds. This game is inspired by the pulp comics and serial movies of the 1930s and the sword & planet literature genre.

The megagame will take place on Saturday 5 June 2021, at the Wellington Indian Association Hall at 48 Kemp Street, Wellington, New Zealand 6022. It will run from 10.30am to 4.30pm, with a short lunch break. It may finish earlier.

Tickets for the event are now on sale at the Wellycon website.  Follow the Romance of the Seven Worlds Facebook event page for updates. If we have space on the day, we can allow walk-in players.
