Building a thriving games community.
Press Start Hong Kong started off as a side project because we saw the power of games as a platform to bring people together. The Board Game Social, our flagship event that we started off with, is still our monthly open house where we welcome gamers of all experiences and backgrounds to meet new friends and try new games.
We are the proud organizers of #PokeWalkHK, Hong Kong's first and largest Pokemon Go-themed event back in 2016, and we have pioneered many exciting event formats in Hong Kong with some inspiring partners.
Here is a selection of events that we have put together.
Board game social
Come for the games, stay for the friendships.
Press Start Hong Kong has been synonymous with the Board Game Social, a monthly open house series that we started back in 2014. We still run these every month, usually on a mid-month weekend day.

#PokeWalkHK was launched just two weeks after the Pokemon Go servers opened in Hong Kong. We planned and led 500+ people on a walking tour of Sheung Wan and Central, with 6 sponsors and a multitude of media coverage. Our grandest endeavor to date.
