Battlefield Bangkok Board Game and hobby store is a games store, run by gamers for gamers. Building the hobby base in Thailand is our largest interest, and as such we’re here for the long haul. Certainly we’re business people too, but we play games, a lot of games and we want to give ourselves, our friends and the gaming community a place to meet, learn and experience new games. Battlefield Bangkok has no table fees, no room fees and no “in store” game usage fees. That’s right it is 100% free to drop in and play games at Battlefield Bangkok!!!
Drop in any time to check out our broad collection of games, or to play games, learn new games, participate in a demo session or just hang out and talk shop. Naturally our staff speak excellent English and Thai. Need to check on a game give us a call during open hours at 02 747 9719
We are presently looking for a new part time store assistant and gamer to work 3-4 days a week, including Sat and Sun, contact us to discuss.

We’re also scoring for the houses to see which house comes out top too!
May 17th : Heroclix Tournament.
This is a great chance to learn Heroclix in a friendly but competitive event. Kana will be the host for his event and he will have access to hundreds of clix that you can choose from, so, no figures, no problem. The game is easy to learn and offers masses of replay value.

Draft event for the new Coming Storm release. Schedule from 1 PM to around 6 PM, should be the largest L5R draft we’ve had at BFB

Everyone is aware that the next coming release for the L5R CCG is The Coming Storm, being a booster and draft release. The The Coming Storm Draft Player Kit is still a bit of a mystery.
However beyond that release there are two more already scheduled. The first being the Siege: Heart of Darkness which is a deck release, no info on which clans will be included yet, and then this is followed by a Booster release with A Line in the Sand. We have no dates on the release of these two sets, details as we find them!
One of the biggest irritations of the the GW Web Site and web direct orders, other than they actually exist, was that they were not integrated into store orders. Each order had to paid at full price and then the credit chased up afterwards, which sometimes took a few months to get. It was a process that had too many steps and created extra work for everyone.
But not any more, with the launch of the new site Store orders of Web Direct items will be properly integrated to make their purchase simpler for stores and the GW team, no more sending in invoices, asking for credit and waiting for it to be done. All done at the time of purchase now.
Sadly this doesn’t come with an increase margin on web direct orders, but at least it’ll be simpler to do from now on!
