Re-post and update of the thread previously posted on ye olde forum:



3-4 December 2005, Mid-Valley Exhibition Centre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Yep, the first for Malaysia and possibly South East Asia, and its gonna be a biggy!! 18,000 sq. ft, official airline, hotels, full media coverage etc!! They is even a mega-game with 1000 players...... the mind boggles!

There's more info at the Gaming Report:

Dark Age shall be there with Art_de_Vivre and myself running demos on Saturday and Sunday, 12 hours each day *phew*!!! The science-fiction terrain board shall be the main demo piece with St Mark's Krew going up against the Dragyri of the Ice Caste. Brood and Skarrd forces will also be there if visitors feel the need to experience the less honourable armies .

We had also planned to have a second demo board for running two games at the same time, but due to a number of problems, it looks like a display area shall replace the demo board. Something nice to help show off all the gribbly DA models (the display piece is a bit of a secret at the moment, lets just say its a bit of an experiment, and I'm still having problems with it ).

We'll post a report and piccies after the event.

Here's a rough breakdown of what else will be happening at GAMECON-1:
