Upcoming Conventions in Singapore
We’ve not had the chance to do this yet, so why not now? It’s Good Friday, and I bet some of you will be planning your schedule for the months ahead, so let’s just go through what’s coming up in the next few months! It’s not exhaustive, but hopefully we managed to touch on some things that will pique your interests.
28-29 May 2011
First up! We have Spore-Con, Singapore’s very own analog gaming convention. This yeah it’s once again going to be at Pasir Ris East Community Club, where last year we had a nice sized hall and meeting room. This year promises once again to be a blast – we’ll update as more news turns up! Find coverage of last year’s Spore-Con here!
4-5 June 2011
Next, Singapore Comifest returns for a second shot this year, moving a whole new location after certain complaints about the location the last time. Held at the Civil Service Club in Bukit Batok, this huge shift in location promises to be interesting, but it definitely feels unconventional. I’d say the move comes with its own pros and cons, but I wonder if they should have had more confidence to hold a few rooms in Suntec just by themselves.
Singapore Toys, Games and Comic Convention
20-21 August 2011
Finally, arguably the biggest of them all – STGCC. Shortened from 4 days to 2, one wonders what exactly is going on behind the scenes right now. Hopefully at the very least they’ll be able to pack Sunday instead of having the comic professionals touring the island. This clashes with the Baltimore Comic-Con in the US, so with certainty I can say that we will NOT be seeing Jason Aaron, Charlie Adlard, Frank Cho, David Finch, Ron Frenz, Mike Grell, Barry Kitson, Bob McLeod, David Petersen, Brandon Peterson and Stan Sakai. We’ll keep you guys updated on this! Find coverage of last year’s STGCC here.
Just saw this on PI’s facebook…

Paradigm Infinitum Fusionopolis
Its time for another bits & parts swap meet! For everyone who’s into miniatures gaming & modelling, this is the best time to swap the model bits that you don’t need with others in the store!
Entry to this event is $10 and you will receive 5x $2 coupons that you may use to ‘swap’ with someone else for their bits if you don’t have something that they want.
All coupons can then be used at face value at the store and are valid on the day of the event ONLY. Make sure to redeem them before you go!
Time to gather your bits and we’ll see you at Fusionopolis soon!
