A change of venue and a slight change of format. This year, we’ll be hosting our 8th Retreat at Bagan Lalang, Sepang in a less structured, less competitive format.

Anyway we decided to give this game a spin on a mid-week public holiday. Read on to get a good overview of how this game plays out, and where next for the Orient Express?
