Hello everybody,

is there any gameconvention or boardgamefair in Hongkong?
I think it will be awesome if we had one!

Because i am from Hongkong (but live overseas),
i actully had a vision about a boardgamefair in Hongkong,
something called "康樂遊戲展".

What do you guys think?

I might propose to the Committee of our Society to organise another one next year. It all depends on the availability of venue. Hopefully, we can organise an Asia Pacific game show in Hong Kong in future. There are game clubs in Japan, Philipines, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, China.
