Unbeknownst to most people, the Best New Site 2007 according to Boardgamenews is:

Hiew's Boardgame Blog
Hiew's Boardgame Blog

Made in Malaysia.

Say what? Who is this guy? How come I've never played boardgames with this guy before?

Beats me. Although I'm sure our friendly local boardgame distributor would know. Funny thing is, everyone complains about how difficult it is to get a regular gaming group going. On the other hand, no one wants to play with people other than the ones they know! I tell you... Next someone's going to tell me there's another boardgamer in Klang looking for kaki.

Oh, and ah congrats to Hiew!

You never met Hiew, ah? He plays with Han - usually privately.

Hiew = Picked up euro games in Taiwan, plays regularly with Han. Goes home to KK occasionally. Knows Chong Sean who has just opened the CarcaSean cafe in KK. Both gamed in Taiwan.



Han = Dr Han. Surgeon. Used to play with us in GC until he felt embarrassed always having to leave a game in the middle of it when duty called (which was very often)!



Both very active (but private) euro gamers. Not into war games, but dabble in the occasional fantasy (Runebound) and sci-fi stuff (Starcraft).



They show up at most of our events (GAMECON, mini-GAMECON, Essen launch, Merdeka sale & game trade, etc).



Well Done!

Ah I see. I guess if I attend events often enough I'll run into this legendary gamer sooner or later.



Makes me think that we need a Malaysian boardgamers blog listing. So far we've got



champion eternal http://ofgamesandotherfings.blogspot.com/



myself www.aikyong.com and



hiew http://hiewandboardgames.blogspot.com/



Then there's imagine games and boardgamecafe.net. Who else?

Ankabut is a very active gamer from Ipoh who fleets between euro games and computer games.

LOL! I just noticed Ankabut called boardgames 'permainan papan'!
