In case you missed out on the news last month, we will be having our very own games convention this month, during the weekend of December 17 and 18. That’s when MaGaCon takes place, which its organizers is touting as “Malaysia’s first annual independent Analog and Digital gaming convention, run by gamers, for gamers.”
Card games (both the standalone, non-collectible kind and the collectible and tradable kind), boardgames, tabletop miniature games and electronic games will all share the spotlight with competitions, exhibitions and demos all happening in Kolej Damansara Utama (KDU), Damansara Jaya, in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
We’ve just heard that side-activities will include some live-action role-playing (LARP) as well, in order to spice up the scenery. In what could be a first for Malaysia, LARP participants will take part in a an actual real-life “adventure”, in which everyone needs to complete “quests” and the like, in order to score points, and possibly swag!
There will also be Monopoly Deal and Monopoly Classic tournaments, with winners standing the chance to take home Monopoly Live sets worth RM200 each, courtesy of Hasbro Malaysia.
