Hurrah for KotakCon 2016!

Just after Christmas, All Aboard Game Cafe came together with local gaming groups, artists, game creators and vendors to put on the biggest tabletop convention of the year. KotakCon 2016 ran for two days – including the public holiday after Christmas – and featured some of the best of the local tabletop gaming scene.

Roleplaying Gamers of Malaysia (RPGMY) coordinator Gray Ham answers some questions. Gray worked hard on the ground and behind the scenes to help promote and organise KotakCon.

In case you missed the event, see the gaming action for yourself.

KotakCon 2016 was also a great opportunity for local game designers to get together at a panel to discuss the Malaysian tabletop game market and its challenges. Panelists: Effendy Norzaman, Seh Hui Leong, Mohd Firdaus Mohd Johari, Trixie @ Rojak Culture, Ho Yi Jian and Zedeck Siew.
