Hi,

I am not sure this is the right place for this topic, but moderators are welcome to move it to appropriate section.
First of all let me apologize my inability to speak or understand bahasa Indonesian. I am trying to learn but be patient with that :no:

I have been living in Indonesia, Jakarta for over a month and been craving to play some boardgames. Now finally I found this place wich makes me incredibly happy :D I have asked from my coworkers and people I met here where can I buy or play a boardgames but I just got weird looks and no real help. Then finally today I came to an idea to check boardgamegeek and i found my way here from there.

I am from Estonia (google it if you dont know :P). Been interested on boardgames for two years now. I belong in Estonian active boardgame community so I would like to pick up this in here too :)

take care everyone

hello,

welcome to our forum, dont worry just post in English :thumbup:
actually there is a place to introduce yourself :D but since you dont speak bahasa, its okay
I'll move this thread to approppriate forum: kenalan yuk

I see you stay in belezza, its in permata hijau right? a good place for boardgamer I guess...for these reasons:
1. located near STC senayan where you can find a boardgames store (make sure you come on sunday around 2pm to find most of the players)
2. located near grenville area which is the place for our weekly meetup

btw how long do you plan to stay in Jakarta?

hello to someone who posted withouth a name :D

shall i call you ewty?

Hi, I'm Joji, a semi active lurker of this forum :P If you are residing in Jakarta, there are several board game stores that you shall visit. You could check viewtopic.php?f=35&t=11 for more details.

And for the meat of the info :D. If you are craving to play some boardgames, just visit our regular meet up place. On friday, there is a regular meetup in B-Steak which located in West Jakarta, near Jalan Panjang/Merak Toll. On Saturday/Sunday, there is also a semi-regular meetup in Senayan Trade Center LG Floor, on Strategos Utopia boardgame store. This building is located near Senayan, just beside Plaza Senayan. Just in case, you should contact some members first to ensure the meetups. In such a rare occasion, meetup is cancelled due to lack of personal reason. But usually, there are people playing there on saturday And sunday.

Btw, where do you live?

Regards,
Joji

Hello, I already replied your GM :)

Wow??!!! Bellezza?? That's very close to me (about 15 minutes). I can pick you up for games :).

Anyway, you still haven't answered how do we call you :)

Ps: Estonia hmmm?? Is there any chance you might knew someone called binraix? The one who cause quite an "uproar" in BGG a few times ago? :P

Hi ewty, welcome!

Always glad to have more people joining the community. I hope you enjoy your stay in Indonesia! :rg_thumb:

Just a quick question: What kind of boardgames / other hobbies do you usually play? Euro?

thanks for welcomes :)

In the forums you can call me ewty, I like that. My real name is Riine, but since ppl here pronounce it wrong and always misspell it I prefer ewty (tough this has different pronunciation as well).


@Darkmot: yay! for picking me up :D
I don't know binraix tough, he lives far away from my hometown, so I have never met him. what did he managed to do to cause uproar?

@Ellesar: I do enjoy eurogames, also co-op games and some card games.

Well, he just submit his girlfriend photo holding a game box (a lot!), so some people at BGG get quite upset because the photos are "hogging" the front page gallery :D.

Anyway, welcome here :dance:
