Melbourne International Games Week features our day long celebration of tabletop gaming. Heaps of TTRPGs and boardgames to play, panels, workshops and other events.

We’ve got several spectator events running on the day!

At 10am: The event will launch, and our partners The Quest Suppliers will be showcasing some locally-developed board games.

At 12 noon: Our first panel, ‘Queer PCs and NPCs’, all about including a variety of queer representation in your games, as a GM and as a player.

At 2pm: Our second panel, ‘Women at the Head of the Table’, all about ways to centre women in games and gaming spaces.

At 4pm: Our third panel, ‘COVID-19 and Gaming Businesses’, all about the impacts that the pandemic has had on the Australian games industry.

At 6pm: The Quest Suppliers will be back for a second round of local board games, played live for your entertainment.

At 8pm: Goblins of Zarth liveplay! Come watch Tabletop Dynasties run their latest Goblins of Zarth module, and return us to the gloriously chaotic world of Zarantharul!

You can watch all of these on the ARC Twitch channel! We’d love to see you there!

Of course, we’re hoping you might want to get involved, too. We’ve got a selection of board games and tabletop roleplaying games (TTRPGs) on offer, both old favourites and new, exciting, locally developed offerings!

All games are run on our Discord channel. If you aren’t already a member, you can join by clicking here.

Here’s what we’re running and when. For more details about all these games, we’ve got a full list up here.
