The much talked about FFG Media Center will be launching in Malaysia next month (July), so FFG fans can look forward to it!

Already a huge success in USA, stores have been reporting increased traffic and sales from this state-of-the-art device which runs trailers, tutorials and acts as an extra FFG staff on hand to assist stores.

As FFG's exclusive distributor for Malaysia, Imagine Games will be installing the first Media Center in ComicsMart @ Mid-Valley Megamall, the country's #1 store for euro, sci-fi, fantasy, CCG & miniature games.

I think they are talking about the iPad based advertising tool that FFG have made available, rather than an FFG Event Centre...

Good, a new board game place in KL. I'll see it by October (I'll be there for more than a month).

The Media Center should be up and running by end-July followed by the launch of the FFG Event Center in August

However you don't have to wait so long for some gaming action - just pop by tomorrow (Sunday, 12 June) to join or see the 2nd Anima:Tactics Tourney between 2-7pm.

Come say hello, and pick up the coolest anime figures on the planet devil

If it's open in early August, I'll drop by. I've been looking for somewhere to try out Chaos in the Old World: The Horned Rat Expansion, as it hasn't found its way to China yet. Will I have the chance in KL?

Yes!

The store (ComicsMart @ MidValley Megamall) is the top store for euro games, ccgs and miniatures in the country so just drop me a mail when you are due in KL and we'll have that demo organized for you!

They are already operating but once we have the FFG Media Center up and running (July), they will function as the FFG Event Center for Malaysia (August) which will host mega FFG events all year long!

Great to see that the board game scene is finally getting a go in Malaysia! Hopefully this hobby will become much bigger there.

After a slight shipping delay and 2 weeks of testing (at public events), the FFG Media Center went live @ ComicsMart, Midvalley Megamall last night!!!

See the latest video trailers, in-depth interviews with the game designers and creative teams, and best of all, learn how to play from the video tutorials!

I actually watched the tutorials for Warhammer Invasion and A Game of Thrones LCG, and played the game immediately after (even winning my first game of AGOT against someone who had read the rules and played it before)!

So c'mon Malaysian gamers, the best tool in the game industry is right here in KL, what are you waiting for???

WARNING: Be prepared to take a number and wait for your turn to touch the screen :-)
