Boardgame Society (BGS) is a University of Sydney Union society that aims to organise boardgame activities for the student body, to enrich their on-campus life and facilitate free discussion among student groups who share passion for boardgames, and cultivating a competitive and friendly spirit among students.
Particularly, BGS will focus on Mandarin-based boardgames such as Live Action Role Playing (LARP), Werewolf, Avalon, and Three Kingdoms to promote multiculturalism and bonding between diverse student groups.
Join us & enjoy boardgames & make friends.
The gaming sessions will be organised into 2 categories: regular fortnight gaming sessions and the Grand Prix. In the first stage when the society is just established and up running, BGS will run five types of boardgames on a fortnightly basis: Werewolf, Kill Game, Three Kingdoms, Avalon and LARP. Location will be in one of the USU outlets or outside the university. Activity notifications will be published on relevant social media channels (Facebook, Wechat etc) and all participants will sign up using Google Forms with their contact details.
During the 2nd semester, on top of the regular gaming sessions, BGS will hold the “The Grand Prix Competition”. Depending on the popularity of the boardgame, the most popular game (LARP is more likely) will be chosen to run on an elimination system. The final winners will be presented with an award.
