• About Us

    The Sydney Megagamers are a large, growing community group who have designed and facilitated 5 Megagames with over 350 individual participants.

  • What’s a Megagame?

    Our games are unlike anything you’ve encountered, delicately combining roleplay, strategy, politics and the social dynamics of 50+ participants.

  • Our Games

    We’ve designed games in numerous genres and settings, from modern day geopolitical simulations to swashbuckling adventures set in the Age of Sail.

  • Get in Touch

    We are always keen to hear from the community – whether you want to know about us, our games and events, or opportunities to work together.


We are a community driven by the design and facilitation of large-scale simulations called Megagames. Our games focus mostly on social interaction, political theory and strategic thinking.
