MoG Weekend away and Star Wars Adventures!

Hey guys! Just letting you know about some events we have coming up:

 

Star Wars at the Powerhouse (4th May)
Ministry of Game Weekend Away (3-5 August)

 

Let us know in the comments if you are coming or not, and to which event!! (OR BOTH!!) 😀
Please note, you are responsible for buying your own tickets for both events. Please follow the links in the information to ensure you can join us!!

 

 

The Powerhouse Museum is hosting a Star Wars extravaganza this year!

With a scale model of an X-wing that you can climb inside, do I need to say anything more to get you to come?? There’s also AR lightsaber duels, panels, coding astromech droids, collectables to drool over and heaps of other cool stuff!

If you would like to join MoG, we are going to the 9am-12pm session on Saturday the 5th May. Then will probably head into the city for lunch together.

Find out more and buy tickets from here. Adults cost $17 (including booking fee) concession is $9.50 and kids under 16 are free with an adult ticket (but booking must be made anyway)

Bring the whole family! Come in costume or your most awesome star wars shirt!

 

 
We are giving a new twist to the MoG Weekend away!!!
 
 
Book tickets ahead – early bird tickets are available from 18/4 (10am) until about 17/5. Buy tickets here.
 
EttinCon only runs for Saturday the 4th August, so there will be plenty of time to hang out, play games and eat food! You also have no obligation to come to EttinCon, and can instead just come up and do whatever!
 
You are also welcome to come along with your family – either stay with us or make your own arrangements.
 
We will hopefully be booking a house in Blackheath, so let us know if you can come and want a room (and what kind of room you would like) and we will do our best to accommodate all! You can also come up for the day, or organise your own accommodation and come hang out with us when you want.
 
Please let us know if you want to stay with us by Tuesday the 15th May. We will be trying to book something after that.
