Beside organizing free & open boardgaming meetups regularly in the Klang Valley, Boardgamecafe.net have always been keen to get everyone together once in a while for a weekend retreat of boardgaming! After a very successful retreat back in 2006 (which was co-organized with Imagine Games), Boardgamecafe.net now brought you our very own (first) BGC Boardgamecafe Retreat which was held at 6,000 ft above sea level in Genting Highland’s First World Hotel (GICC).
This week we return to arguably the first boardgame café in Msia – MAGE CAFE in Damansara Jaya – as we seek to find out who shall be our 9th and 10th Finalists. Two rounds were played – Germany first, then China – read on to find out what Ribena Lychee has to do with Power Grid. 🙂
The OTK meetups continued to grow with 5 tables during R1 and 4 tables in R2! The Hacans were so curious about the OTK sessions they sent their Queen the Merciful to come look-see for shark food!

After a tour of Qualifiers hosted by newly set-up boardgame cafes, we are honored to be back among one of the oldest game shop to premier in M’sia – WOLF GAME SHOP. Only the brave lurks in the lair of the wolf, and with rumours of Empress Hacan the Merciful making a return from her Catan slumber, we were all set for an explosive qualifier!
