Playtest Meetup at the Engagement Game Lab

*** This week we're in the Engagement Game Lab in Boston  ***

Bring your prototype, or just your game design sense!

Venue Details

160 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02116

1) You already have the address, but it's right next to the Steinway Piano sign, above the antique shop.

2) Ring the bell for floor four. It is marked "Emerson" on a hand-written tab.

3) Walk to the back and take the elevator to the 4th floor. The elevator is old, slow, and creepy but rest assured it does work.

4) Welcome to the Engagement Game Lab space!

If you have any questions or if you have any trouble getting in, feel free to call or text us at:

    Oh man! We were in the back, and I think I missed my shirt and Patronagerperson Card!

    Hey all, I will be a few minutes late unless the T has magically perfect timing getting to park street -- I promise I and Amino will be there, so please keep me in the schedule! :)

    1 · October 20

  • Samuel

    Bringing a demo-only build of Animal City. Also, does anybody have some 1/4-1/2" stacking cubes that I could borrow/buy? Also does anyone have translucent marker discs/squares?

  • Tim B.

    Going to go as a play-tester this week, but will have Oh My Gods! if we need more games (ha!). 3-5 players, 20 mins per game.

    October 20

  • Dennis C.

    Bringing Final Judgement, a fast-paced coop/competitive game in which humanity has to survive for 7 days under God's tests. 4p, 30min. Testing out some variations.

    October 20

  • Phil

    Bringing an updated (from last time's comments) version of "Do You Know Your Neighbors?" and I would like 7 or more players for 45 minutes.

    1 · October 19

  • Chuck H.

    Bringing Devil's Advocate, an rpg that draws inspiration from DC/Vertigo's Hellblazer comic series.

    Glad to hear it Lauren! Amino's mechanics was solid and fun. Great potential!

    1 · October 15

  • Lauren W.

    I'm bringing Amino back with changes thanks to great feedback from the previous meeting. It can plan 2-5, but I'd like to try a four- or five-player game this time (30 minutes either way).

    • Don M.

      If you want a 4-5 player game, do not say it can play 2-5. This Just In! will eventually play 2-5 as well, I'm testing it with 4 to start.

      October 14

    • Lauren W.

      Don, I filled out 4-5 in the survey form through meetup.

      October 15

  • Chuanqi X.

    Hello, everyone! I am a student from Tufts University. I want to make an interview about game making to finish my homework. Is it ok for me to join you? I am a fan of game designing and have some ideas of it.

    October 14

    • Eli K.

      Yes, please come! I'm sure any of our developers would be happy to take a moment to talk to you about their design process, and we're always happy to have more play testers :)

      October 14

  • Don M.

    I'm bringing This Just In!
    4 players 60 minutes.
    A completely unplayed worker placement game where you are journalists making a choice to write stories well, or writing the minimum to get them out to print before your coworkers.
