What we're about

This is a gathering for those interested in Manga (Comics), Anime, Games, Cosplay and Japanese Culture in general for Singapore. The intention is to find others who share similar hobbies and across related domains.

For Manga (Comics), Anime and Cosplay enthusiasts, activities include comic meet and draw sessions, anime showcases and cosplay photography sessions. For those able and willing, we can look forward to organising dates and trips to local as well as overseas conventions (e.g. Comiket, Wonder Fest).

For Gamers, the focus for this meetup is on tabletop games (such as card games, board games and related activities such as RPG sessions and LARPs) rather than video, console, computer and mobile games.

Last but not least, the purpose of the meetup is to meet like-minded people and make new friends. We hope that you will enjoy yourselves!

ARENA Game Nights: Week Geeks on Thursdays

Needs a location

A$12.00

Welcome to ARENA Game Nights: Week Geeks!

This is a series of special game sessions that are arranged during weekdays after the usual working hours. It is also one of the main sessions for ARENA gamers who played interconnected board games with overarching themes and a little adjustment to the rules.

If you are a gamer who have other commitments on the weekends but will still like to enjoy board games, this is it! We still welcome those who play normal board games and you will still be able to enjoy the games with the ARENA teams. The game rules don't change for you because of them.

We will be playing an assortment of board games. While the regulars prefer designer kicks like Root, Vast: The Crystal Caverns, Vast: The Mysterious Mansion, we do indulge in Not alone, 15 days, Space Lunch and the occasion solo like Eiyo once in a while. There will still be insane ones who tried to squeeze in a Game of Thrones between the turns of Etherfields.

We will contact you when you sign up and place you into appropriate messaging groups with different needs to facilitate further communication. Total noobs are totally welcome!

While we don't serve food ourselves, we are smack right in the middle of the legendary Golden Mile premises with an huge range of eateries from super curry puffs, loud Japanese izakaya food, heavenly chicken rice with steamboat, hellish black burgers and authentic Thai food that is just sick. All within a pebble's throw away. Of course, be forewarned that these are all extremely hazardous to any dieting plans.

Tea and dinner sessions (at our own expenses) usually follow the gaming sessions according to our designated groups. Due to the current Covid-19 and social distancing restrictions, you are not allowed to join us for these food consuming sessions only. For your understanding, please

If you have something specific in mind, do a shout out below and we see if we can help within reasonable grounds.

There will be a charge of SGD $12 collected at the door (in cash) to help with the running of the event.

Party of Fives: Boardgames on Lazy Saturdays

Needs a location

A$12.00

Welcome to the Party of Fives Meetups!

Unlike our other game days, this one is a little on the lazy side.

These are the times when gems like Mountain Goats, GPS, 15 Days will shine. Azul, Splendor, Jamaica and even slightly heavier ones like the Kodama series are also popular especially if all you want is to spend a day in the magical forests with the spirits.

But still, you will not be able to stop guys organising an expedition to the Copperneck Mountains in Gloomhaven or to set the masts ablaze among the mighty airships in Avertigo in the south china airs and seas.

For the creatives out there, you might bump into others with similar interests as game designers, illustrators and you know, the arty-farties tend to gather on Saturdays to show off their stuff and chat.

We will contact you when you sign up and place you into appropriate messaging groups with different needs to facilitate further communication. Total noobs are totally welcome!

Party of Fives: Boardgames Beyond on Sundays

Needs a location

A$12.00

Welcome to the Party of Fives Meetups!

If you are a gamer who wants to go beyond the usual PARTY gaming fare at boardgame meetups and cafes, this is it!

We don't usually play Cards against Humanity, Exploding Kittens and Unstable Unicorns. That's just us. Make us play if you can.

We will be playing an assortment of board games ranging from light strategic kinds to heavy thematic ones. Games we usually play range from light ones like Azul, Splendor, Jamaica to medium ones like Yokohama, Endeavor and Nippon and of course heavy ones like Twilight Imperium, Gloomhaven, Tainted Grail and Kingdom Death Monster!

Do not be surprised if you see us painting miniatures or are engaged in some sort of insanely time-consuming enhancements towards our game elements in our games. Everyone get their kick in different ways. :) Painting groups are also in their groups of fives ...

For the game designers out there, just tell us that you are a creator when you see us and we will have our own private creative sessions mapped out in a feasible way. Most others don't care so we should not disturb the force unnecessarily.

We will contact you when you sign up and place you into appropriate messaging groups with different needs to facilitate further communication. Total noobs are totally welcome!
