What is Buckets of Dice?

Buckets of Dice is the South Island’s premier annual hobby gaming convention, and SAGA Inc.’s largest convention of the year. It’s three days of Board Games, Role Playing Games and LARPing, including a flagship LARP on the Saturday evening. There are also various prizes to be won, including for GMs.

Date: Friday 4 June – Monday 7 June, 2021. A full timetable will be provided when more details are finalised. Initial plans are here.

Cost: $20 for the whole event, or $10 for one day. This can be paid on the day or through online banking before the event (payment details will be sent after registering). There is a $5 discount for SAGA members, and a $5 discount for GMs.

Flagship: TBA

For many people the flagship LARP is one of the highlights of Buckets of Dice. We are currently organising this year’s flagship and will be ready to announce something soon.

Game Submissions:

Game Submissions will be open soon!


Registration will be available after Game Submissions are complete.


If you are coming from out of town, we can help you find somewhere to stay. Once player registration opens we will also open a form for anyone looking for billeting or willing to offer it.
