2. Tabletop Games Booth

The ground floor of the mall at Any Games Con featured a play area where visitors could try out a range of games from both international markets and Malaysia. Additionally, attendees could also try out card games such as Magic: The Gathering and the new Grand Archive Trading Card Game.
The event was bustling with booths featuring tabletop games surrounding the play area. Visitors could purchase a variety of board games, whether new or second-hand.

Alongside this tournament, Grand Archive TCG, War of the world tournament with Huawei band 5 as Prize was also held during the weekend.
6. Dungeons & Dragon Experience
If you watched the Dungeons & Dragons movie, but felt too shy or introverted to try the game yourself, then the event had sessions all day long throughout the weekend. The Dungeons & Dragons sessions were setup to be quick and easy for attendees to sign up and play based on the timing that they want. No need to go through the hassle of creating a character or reading manuals as the Dungeon Master and the session booth would have done it for you. We heard that the attendees were enjoying a blast slinging spells and swinging swords during the event.
