Discuss, Play and Improve Our Work In Progress Game Prototypes

The DGM location is open for gaming on Thursdays. The Dallas Designers Group will meet the SECOND THURSDAY each month in a semi-private room to discuss game ideas, give advice, play prototypes and even talk about the methods of getting games to publication.

All analog game idea types are welcome.  Analog games include board games, card games, dice games, yard games, etc.  Video Games have been discussed but usually in relation to making an analog version.

Play testers are also needed so, if you enjoy playing innovative, unpublished prototypes, please show up!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A sample of games that have been published by Dallas Designers Group members include:

Mage Wars by Arcane Wonders, Field Hospital and Dragon Valley by Diamond K Games

There are many other games in various stages of development and all ideas are welcome, don't be shy!

    We had a total of 13 people participate and had 4 new attendees. The turnout was great and some good progress was made on the games demoed.

    It was tons of fun to test the UX of a game, provide feedback, and feel like part of worthy endeavor. Playing more games after testing was fun. too. I'll be back!

    Just to be double clear, as a first time meetup attendee I'd be able to come for free, correct?

      No one in the group RSVPs through meetup despite me asking them to. We have had great sessions even with two people as it allows more personal conversations on advice/improvements. Of course that is only if the game handles two players. The first visit for designers/playtesters is free. You may have to ask for me to talk to the person at the front desk if they disagree.
