BOX is also Malaysia’s first Asian Board Games Festival, now in its second year. It aspires to bring board game publishers from all over Asia together under one roof, right here in Malaysia, at the Strand Mall in Selangor from 26-27 August.

In early June 2024, KakiTabletop organised International Tabletop Day 2024 in Malaysia to celebrate this pastime that has been played for centuries and touched the lives of millions worldwide. Over the years, Malaysia has also seen an increase in board game fans all over the country, with many board game cafes mushrooming.

Sponsored by WCT Group, BOXCON 2024 will feature seven Malaysian board game designers. One vendor will promote its Taiwanese board game, and one will promote its TRPG or tabletop role-playing game.
