First Ever RPG Playtest Meetup - Plus Game Chef 2014 Prep

Join us for our first meeting of the RPGMG! The group expressed considerable interest in these unique, complex, transformative games, and now here's your chance to playtest!

Stay tuned for time and location.

In addition to playtesting RPGs currently in development, this is also a great opportunity to talk about entries to the 2014 Game Chef competition, which also launches on May 10.

Every year, designers all over the world compete to create the best possible story game, using four "special ingredients" in less than two weeks. It's a hard task, but you won't have to do it alone.

Share ideas, playtest, and pick the brains of former Game Chef competitors (and even winners). See you then!


[The Engagement Game Lab is on the 4th floor of 160 Boylston St. above the antique store, next to the Steinway sign. Ring the bell for Emerson Engagement Game Lab and then take the elevator to floor 4.


You can reach me at[masked] if you have a problem getting into the building.

    Had a good time brainstorming with everyone on the Game Chef competition. Hope to see more RPGs from everyone next time.

    Would have loved to go, but busy all weekend. I'll try to catch the next.

    Big fan of your Forsooth!, Sam.

    Do we have a location?

      Cambridge if possible!

      Couldn't secure space in Cambridge, so it's at the EGL.

    Saturday afternoons sadly are not a good time for me, as much as I'd love to come to these meetups... I will definitely be trying to participate in Game Chef though, so if tips could be posted afterwards, I'd really appreciate that!

    • Sam L.

      I'll see what I can do!

    So who's bringing a new game to this?

    Kevin and I are working on a court-room drama game called Out of Order that we're hoping to playtest. Each player is a different role (prosecutor, defense attorney, judge, or witness(es).

      You can't run a single encounter?

      April 29, 2014

    • Don M.

      Not currently. I haven't touched it in a year or so, but I am interested in taking another look at it when I'm not about to launch a Kickstarter.

    This is going to directly follow the GMG board meeting that Saturday. As it does not yet have an official time, consider the 1:00 PM a ball-park estimate.

    • Jamie P.

      I would totally go to this event if it were in the late afternoon/early evening. Don't think I can make early afternoon though.
