Who

(Formerly) the Association of Middle Earth Roleplaying and Individual Character Assimilation

The Auckland Roleplaying Guild (formerly the AMERICA Club) is one of the longest running clubs at the University of Auckland. We meet every Tuesday and Wednesday night in the Commerce A building at University of Auckland, 7 – 10 pm – check out club nights for specifics.

The Auckland Roleplaying Guild runs three Tuesday Orientation Nights at the start of the first semester. Orientation Night is to give a taste of what tabletop and the Auckland Roleplaying Guild have to offer, featuring simple and quick to play game.

We run three big weekend event tournaments:

  • PrezCon (Kimberley-Con, 2018) – first semester break in April. A fun weekend of casual roleplaying games, board gaming and an introduction newbie friendly LARP.
  • The AMERICA’s Cup– mid semester break in July. A tournament is run alongside relaxed and informal gaming (including systemless games and fun quirky scenarios) where new and old gamemasters can get together.
  • From the Vaults– second semester break in September. A weekend of casual roleplaying and board gaming. A chance to get some last gaming in before assignments, study and exams take up all our time.

The Auckland Roleplaying Guild is also associated with the NZ Live Action Roleplaying (LARP) community and is keen to get new players hooked.

The AMERICA Club hosts an annual gaming event called The BattleCry Convention in February. Battlecry is a tournament that draws a nationwide audience of roleplayers, cardgamers and wargamers to compete against each other, with points scored for their performance and gamesmanship.

A.M.E.R.I.C.A. stands for Association of Middle Earth Roleplaying and Individual Character Assimilation (jokingly taken on by our first president). The club has been associated with gaming, roleplaying, tournaments and social gatherings in New Zealand with all the highs and lows associated with a successful and constantly evolving club.

The club has a policy to never turn someone away.
