Hello-
Been an active lurker on BGG for a few years now... My wife & I are moving to Karachi, Pakistan- looking for a board game community.
I've searched BGG some & found nothing.

Anyone know anything? Can we get a Pakistan forum under the Regional forums ?

Thanks

Nothing about Karachi in BGG? Watch out for epidemics...




Welcome!

As one of the few people who will respond that has actually spent some time in Karachi. I will say while working with the Karachi Navy, I did have a chance to play quite a few boardgames with several members. Of course this was in 1989, but they did seem to enjoy it.

Karachi is a very very poor city, I am guessing you are going to have a hard time finding locals to game with. But if you are going in a capacity with other foreigners, you might have luck getting something together.

I couldn't imagine why you would be going there in this climate. But good luck!(And take your malaria treatment)

Thanks for your input- we know it is a very poor city. But, we also know there is a growing expat community & also a growing university educated community. So, I figured I'd ask here! Thanks

I just heard on NPR news that Karachi is the biggest fan of Brazil's football team. I only know this because of the World Cup. Have a great time there.
