RPG Malaysia : RPG-friendly game shops

  • Wira Games & Hobbies, Petaling Jaya:

    Located in SS15 Subang Jaya, Wira boasts a wide selection of Warhammer products, and welcomes roleplayers. After a recent ownership change this store is now under the same ownership as RNG Games. One of my favourite hangouts.

    A game cafe with a large selection of board games and card games. Several roleplaying groups (including mine) frequently rent tables here, and the cafe has D&D rulebooks on the reading shelf, including classic AD&D books.

    Located upstairs from All Aboard, The Attic is a clubhouse-like gaming space (not a store) for miniature wargaming, model hobbyists and other tabletop games. Reasonable table charges for members and non-members.

    Although primarily a trading card game store, Cards & Hobbies welcomes roleplaying groups.
