Wellington Anniversary Weekend January 20th - 21st 2018

Aliens: Endgame

Facilitator: 
morgue

Endgame is an intense character-based drama in a horrific world.

In 1995, the weekend-long event Gametime launched a series of large-scale games in Wellington inspired by the Aliens film franchise. The last of these was Apocalypse in December 1999, which found Earth overrun by the alien creatures. Now, ten years later, Endgame will take you back to that blighted planet and give you a chance to seek out its future.

Small town USA, 1986. The goth years.

You and the entire teenage goth population (all 6 of you) have heard the best news ever - The Cure are coming to town!!!

Well, not your town. I mean, nothing ever happens in your one-cow town. This is going to require a road trip, and it's going to be EPIC. You have the family mini van, assorted useful (or not so useful) resources spread between you, and one shared goal: do whatever it takes to meet Robert Smith.

Communing in Darkness

Facilitator: 
Donna Giltrap

Time was that everybody who was anybody went to seances. Time was that there was a living to made out of being a medium. Some of them were fakes, sure - But some of them were for real, and could put you in touch with the dead. For many rich people, mediums were a necessity. Who else would provide a link with family long gone? In the occult-obsessed 1920s it hit fever pitch, and both the good and the bad mediums thrived in an atmosphere of appreciation.

The Book Club

Facilitator: 
Stephanie Pegg

The Calvino Bay Book Club has been meeting for a few months now. It's been OK. The books you've been looking at have hopped around the literary spectrum from the 'classics' like Austen and Dickens, whatever new wunderkind book has got the critics excited, and that time someone wanted to talk about Harry Potter. Something for everyone, you reckon, and you get to meet people you wouldn't otherwise know.

But now, oh now, you're going to talk about The Book. That Book, the one you read when you were 18 that suddenly made the universe make sense to you. The Book that helped you work out who you were as a person. You want, no, you have a visceral need to make everyone else understand what The Book means to you.
