I'm newly moved to Jakarta (bgg thread asking about groups here) and excited to meet some boardgamers over here. I'm working to learn bahasa indonesian but still know very little unfortunately. My wife and I brought over about 20 or so games with us due to weight restrictions, maybe we'll bring more later but the cost to ship is pretty high.

We buy a few of the game stores in Tamman Anggrek but saw that it was primarily warhammer and CCGs; although just today I saw a kiosk in the mall nearby us selling Power Grid, Dominion, and Steam. I did see that the IBG group organizes group orders from time to time, which is fun.

Hope to meet some of you soon, and get some gaming in. And in time hopefully I can understand most of the rest of the threads here.

Hi Andrew, nice to know you as well.
It's okay if you have language problem, and I hope you also understand our limitation as well with your language ( :malu: trying very hard writing this and writing is not the same like talking).
As you already know, there are so few game store in our place (either in Jakarta or Indonesia), and most of them are selling CCG or Miniature Tabletops. We usually get new games by ordering via online store or using collective program in this forum.
See you around in meetups! :top:

Hi andrew,

We hope you enjoy your stay in Indonesia, especially gaming with the Indoboardgames members :D
A little bit of warning thought, the traffic is rather terrible here

Hey AndrewN, welcome to Jakarta...

:welcome:

It's hard to move to another country, especially if it's very far from your home country...

Hope you can adapt fast and not feeling homesick.. :))

Oh it's much appreciated that you are willing to write in English. :) Very good English too, many times better than my week-old study of Indonesian. XD

Thanks for the welcomes, I plan to be around for a while, at least the next two years.

Hi and welcome to IBG :) Thumbs up on your collection on BGG, pretty awesome there. :top:
Drive safe tonight and I hope the traffic you encounter later wouldn't give you much surprise, Friday evening traffic and Monday morning traffic are usually quite challenging. :D
