Announcing Board to Death

We’re partnering with our friends at True North to bring you a new event in the Melbourne Meeples calendar, namely Board to Death.

The Board to Death logo sits above artwork of a zombie in a meeple shirt passing a Calico token to the viewer as a red demon holds it's head in it's hands and the Grim Reaper studies his board.

The box from Calico sits on the table as well as some beer and pretzels

Board to Death runs every third Saturday of the month at True North in Coburg (just near the Coburg station and the number 19 tram) starting again on Feb 17th 2024 .

True North is a fantastic cafe with a chilled out vibe and some great retro decor. They serve meals with a rock and roll vibe (and most of them are puns related to 80s and 90s bands and songs). They’re open from the crack of dawn until the dead of night (1am!). 

Unlike Audacious, Board to Death runs during the evenings, currently from 7pm until late.

Featuring all the great modern board games you’ve come to know and love from a Melbourne Meeples event, with the chill vibe of True North and a great variety of drink options and some food to die for.

While we’re aware that some may be disappointed that Audacious is no longer running, we hope that you’ll join us at Board to Death as a new Saturday tradition.

2023 – Meeple Year In Review

Hi Meeples!

It was an exciting, almost epic 2023 for our team here at Melbourne Meeples, and for our amazing community of members and supporters. We have more members than we’ve ever had, and hold more events in more areas of the city than ever before too – building on our mission to make board gaming accessible to as many people as possible across our great city.

People take in the games and accessories at the Melbourne Board Game Market 2023

In May the Melbourne Board Game Market brought over 600 people together with a host of local tabletop creatives, as well possibly the largest board game flea market Melbourne has ever seen. On the night before, PAX we brought board gaming to Fed Square, hiding just under cover on a drizzly night and converting many brand new gamers in the process!

People play at MeepleCon 2023

Now, waking from a packed MeepleCon, with more events, volunteers, contests (and raffle prizes!) than ever before and our biggest ever library – it feels important to add a bit of humility. We have an amazing, hard working team it’s true, but all of this is only possible because of you.

You meeps – our supporters, and especially our members – are the magic that makes our community special and keeps the magic alive. When new gamers come to our events – whether MeepleCon or OzBunnyCon, or NSEG, Board in the West, Board in the East, Games after Dark, the Devonshire Society, or Audacious Games – it’s the joy of sitting around a table playing a great game that brings them back, and it’s the other people at the table that make that experience magical. That’s you meeps. To our members – you make such a massive difference in ensuring we can continue doing what we do, and so often you take that next step from being a member to helping run our events and in doing so making board gaming more accessible to more great people like you. Thank you for being awesome, have a fantastic holiday season, and be assured – we have an even better 2024 to look forward to.

All the best,

Chris Ingold
President
Melbourne Meeples
