Hobbyists showcase games, activities

Kota Kinabalu: Hobbyists in the city came together at the Hobbycon 2008 held at Asia City Complex here, Saturday, to showcase various games and activities that many youths today are taking up as hobbies.

The annual convention, which continues today from 11am to 7pm, is organised by clickstartplay.com, a popular Internet forum among hobbyists in Sabah, to interact and share their interests.

The event aims to provide a platform for hobbies such as card games, board games, computer gaming, video gaming, toys, figurines and models collecting, to have a place in the Sabah community.

Julian Lee, who was involved in organising the event said: "The event is held to show the public the various interesting hobbies that youths can take up. It also aims to gather people of the same passion to rekindle their enthusiasm for their hobbies."

Among various attractions at the event were a card game tournament, dance performances and mini games. The event was held for the first time last year at the same venue and was also a popular attraction among youths.
