Houston Boardgames and Prototypes is a meetup group that meets twice a week (Mondays and Wednesdays). We also meet on various weekend days and join up with other groups in the area for larger crowds.

We focus on playing prototypes of games designed by local area designers to ensure they are fit for submission to publishers across the United States.  We also develop games as two publishers work to make sure games are ready for publication. Occasionally, we play published games to stay current on what games are coming out.

On Monday and Wednesday we play almost exclusively prototypes.

On Saturdays we focus on published games during our occasional meetup.

Our Meetups are in the Northwest of Houston. We often have attendees who don't RSVP, so don't be surprised when more people show up than advertised!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
