GAMECON-2......... now its confirmed..........
« on: February 22, 2007, 12:10:28 pm »

When do we start applying for spaces to run games?



Don't think I'll be running Dark Age this time, but thinking about running a Savage Worlds game......... maybe a Zombie-Fest?

I suspect SOON.. as June is not too far away [:P] btw thanks Shinobi for starting this thread.



GAMECON-2 details below
(from Organizer site)



Good news for all gaming enthusiasts this side of earth - GAMECON-2 is set for the June school holidays!
 
Unfortunately, we had to cancel the original venue (Securities Commission) as they increased their rental rates wef 2007.
 
However, we have teamed-up with an exciting brand communications & events organization, who have agreed to organize GAMECON-2 during the June school holidays at Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas.
 
Stay tuned for more details!

Not sure what I want to do for Gamecon-2. Not many ideas at the moment and it's a bit early for another DBA tournament.



A Zombie-fest would be good fun... [:D] Let me know if you need any help.

Last I heard it's in the June school holidays. It'll be over the weekend, probably starting Friday.



Gotta wait for the CNN guy to be back for confirmed news. Last I heard, the CNN guy went for some supposedly safe-n-touristic reconaissance into Nijmegen (Arnhem) but I think they are still stuck behind enemy lines... waiting for backups to parachute in ala ASL-style to extradite them.

Looks like the Bangsar MiniCon won't be happening this weekend........ waiting for later date.



In the meantime I will probably run a 'Savage' demo session at Mage Cafe in the near future.

here's the official word...



bangsar date (ie. next week during the school break) was too soon for our event organizer to find sufficient sponsors, so its off...



once again, we continue to seek the funds necessary to pull off the next great GAMECON.

i think boardgames as a whole need to go mainstream. more exposure. then more sponsors will come.



still... i know you are doing the best you can. just give a shout if you need volunteers, etc.

Good news about the newspaper elements...... sad about the MiniCon, but fingers crossed for the full GAMECON-2 later.



Regarding the newspapers.... if they are looking at a wider scope of the hobby, maybe get them to come to Mage Cafe next Saturday (9th June) for the Savage Worlds game I'm running. Will be a lot of fun and have loads of 'eye-candy' for piccies for the paper.
