Tabletop Miniature Gamers can mean two things, the first of which could be tabletop gamers which are diminutive in nature or it could be gamers that utilize miniatures in their tabletop gaming. In this case, we are obviously referring to the latter without offending gamers of short stature. Well Tabletop Miniature Gamers can indeed rejoice for there is a new joint in town that serves all your gaming needs and this time its in SS15 Subang.

The newly opened Wira Games & Hobbies store run by Chang Yee Fong, the organizer of last year’s MAGACON at Publika has set his sights on strengthening the community of gamers in Malaysia. Some might feel that tabletop gaming is on the decline but many entrepreneurs think otherwise. Wira can be visit at their Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/WiraGamesHobbies or just head straight there yourself. It is situated in SS15, near Asia Cafe. For those familiar with the area, it is situated two shops away from Salmon Steak (a popular food joint a few years back which has lost its lustre). It’s on the first floor but like the proprietor says, you can’t miss the huge signboard above.

Open from 2:pm – 9:00pm on weekdays, Wira is very much a place for the after-work crowd that wish to get some gaming done. The fact that its also open on Public Holidays makes it a convenient place to gather and game. Also, illustrations of Orcs are always an obvious plus to signboards everywhere.
