SAGA Inc. is the University of Canterbury’s hobby gaming club. According to our constitution, the aim of SAGA is “to encourage the hobby of gaming, including but not limited to role-playing games, wargames, board games, and card games, and to aid its members in the pursuit of these hobbies.” SAGA is a social club where you can meet other people who share the same interests as you.
SAGA is mainly a Role-Playing and Board-Gaming club, although our members are likely to be into similar hobbies such as Wargaming and Collectible Card Games. Twice each week we meet to catch up and play games. The length and scope of the RPG can vary depending on what you’re looking for, be it a fun one-off game or a campaign that takes a year or two to complete. The board games vary from 30 minutes or less to all-night games. We also have occasional LARPs (live-action roleplaying) throughout the year. These are usually during Mini-Cons and our major conventions, but may occasionally be held at regular SAGA meetings or as special one-off events.
In addition to our regular, twice-weekly meetings, we have other events throughout the year such as our quarterly Mini-Cons, our largest gaming weekend, Buckets of Dice, and our LARP convention Phoenix.
