    Hi Everyone,

    This is going to be a long shot but I think a worth while thing to try and compile a list of tournaments that happen in Australia & New Zealand. This year I'm planning to attend a few tournaments and it would be great to be able to plan for the future as well. What helps me is to know the events in each state and when they're likely to happen. It may also help to know which are the larger state run events for those interested to travel.

    Sorry to New Zealand players/meta for combining your country into one section. If it helps to divide it into North/South Island or however you would like to set it up please let me know.

    I am from Sydney/NSW so there is going to be a bias in the knowledge of events there but it would be great to get feedback of other states tournaments and where they run. I know little of other states/metas so it will be good to get some information. I'll do my best to update the post so people don't have to be scrolling. This isn't mean to be a live tracking of current events but help for future planning for those inclined to travel.

    I think information that is useful to know would be but feel free to add whatever you think will help people get to know the event

    1) Where/Which state and where the event is likely to be held?
    2) When is it likely to be held (some fall on particular holidays/others are less fixed)
    3) Type of event (How many days/Points/Rounds/Format)

    Most of the time events are advertised through the Infinity Australia or Infinity New Zealand pages. Closer to date more info will generally go up so definitely keep an eye on the sites:

    Good idea Thaddius.

    In Melbourne the tournaments are currently ad hoc - there's two I know of coming up:

    General Games Malvern East
    7th July, 300pt ITS tournament, 1-day 3-rounds.
    General Games used to host monthly tournies. This is the first since January and turn-out looks good so hopefully they're coming back.

    Eastern Uprising 1 - Zero Pain
    28th July, House of War (Ringwood)
    A 1-day 200pt ITS tournament.


    A group of Melbournites are meeting today to vote on a new club dedicated to organising inner-city events. We should be looking at 4 or so events planned out per year from that, hopefully falling on simialir times each year. So watch this space!

    In the ACT we do semi regular (about once every 2 months or so) one day tournaments at jolt games in Mitchell, ACT.

    We've also got:
    ANUITS, 1 day 300pt ITS on July 8th (this is an annual event which is always around July/August and sometimes 2 days)

    Infinity canberra FaceBook page usually has details of upcoming Canberra tournements

    Sounds good :) Keep us posted with how it goes. Is there a facebook page the Victoria/Melbourne players use to arrange Infinity games?? Would be cool to be able to post a link.

    Hi guys,

    I'm based in Wellington New Zealand, and have recently run IntelCom in April. The plan is to run this event every year, but next year will likely be a part of the NZ NatCon that's run each Easter (NatCon is a moving convention, and is being run on the Kapiti Coast next year, about 45 mins north of Wellington). This year was a 300 point event run in 5 rounds over two days.

    Heya,

    Other New Zealand TO here. We've got the Infinity New Zealand Open (INZO) coming up in two weeks (7-8 July) in Auckland. Hoping to also make this an annual event. Currently staying in Auckland, but might move around.

    Held in the July NZ school holidays which are typically early - mid July.

    2 days 300 point 5 round ITS is the most likely format.

    oof. that sucks, easter will almost always be a no go for me.
