Discuss Game Ideas, Test Prototypes and Discuss Publication Steps

  • This location is shown only to members

Come join us for board, card and dice game creation fun!

This is a weekly meeting on Wednesdays to focus on the following based on the needs of attendees:

• Bouncing off new game ideas, mechanics or themes.

• Techniques of creating, testing and balancing prototypes.

• Various publication options including Print-and-Play, Self-publishing, Crowd Sourcing (Kickstarter, Indie Go-Go) and Pitching to established publishers.

• Networking and Community sharing with other design groups worldwide.

 

Feel free to bring snacks and refreshments (alcohol ok) if you want to make sure we have some.  I cannot guarantee I will have snacks and refreshments on hand every week.

      I will be out of state for the next 30 days visiting family and friends. I plan on attending the first meeting after I am back--after February 18.

    I am looking forward to tomorrow evening. Please join the Facebook page for ongoing planning and conversation with the Dallas Designer Group members. Most of the long time members don't read their meetup.com emails and use the Facebook page instead. https://www.facebook.com/groups/dallasdesignergroup/

    @Alan, We have had sports games represented before. Erik Rinne created Out of Sight Football and Chris Fanchi and Fanfare Games is highly into sports. With enough people coming, I hope to have three or four rooms each with a focus (War/Sport games, Euro/Strategy games, Storytelling/Party games, etc.) It will all depend on growing each genre of game designers and testers. The main themes I have seen at Designer night are fantasy, space and simulation (real estate, rock band manager, bootlegging, construction)

      Thank you very much for the quick response. I was planning to go on Wednesday, January 15th. We are now going to the Rick Springfield concert at the Wyly Theater -- so mark me out on this one.

      I have met Erik and we have played several games. I look forward to meeting Chris and the others. Happy New Year!
