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Play testers are also needed so, if you enjoy playing innovative, unpublished prototypes, please show up!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

    All, please note that we will be having our monthly designer meetup. This month aligns with the December Gaming Group Gift Exchange. From Tim Kelly, the organizer of the gift exchange ...

    "Don't forget!
    This Thursday, ~7.00pm at the DGM location, is the Umpteenth Annual Christmas Gift

    In years past, I've said "Don't get your hopes up! You will NOT get a collector's
    item". Since then we've had a 3M "Twixt" and a 3rd Edition "Roads and Boats". I
    used to say "Just bring stuff you'd expect to see in play on a 'regular' (whatever
    that is) Tuesday or Thursday". Since then, we've had Commodore 64 software and
    "Fort Worth-opoly". Clearly, what I say has no effect; it's just like being at
    home, only there's not as much wine in the fridge.

    DO bring a new or gently used WRAPPED game.

    Don't forget: this is purely voluntary, and 100% tons of fun."
