We play small press games of the imagination

What we do looks like this!

More examples of actual play by some of our members

How it works: Come along for 12:00pm and meet folk in the main bar. At 12:15-12:20 we head downstairs to the lounge bar and everyone who is going to run something pitches what it is they will run, up to how many players can be accommodated, and what the game is about.

It might be GM led or it might be more of a story game with the expectation that everyone contribute equally. When this is complete everyone says what it is they want to play.

At 12:30 your group grabs a table and starts playing!

The slot finishes by around 4:30pm and the pitching process then repeats at around 5pm for the evening slot. 


Want to pitch for the first time at Indiemeet? We want to help: We love members stepping forward to pitch the games they love. If it's your first time pitching at Indiemeet then tell a host and we'll try to fill that game first.


Newcomers Choice: We love to welcome new people to the meetup. So in the first slot, if it's your first visit to London Indiemeet, then we'll ask you what you want to play and make sure that runs!

    Thanks to all the players in Slammin' for showing me that the edge of my comfort zone is an all-Qmale double-voyeur orgy!

    I enjoyed Story Jam & Pulp World. David did a fine job of GMing a couple of newbies through the Apocalypse World system and encouraged us to play the pulp genre in a cinematic style. Had some great conversations after the games.

  • Karolina S.

    I'd like to pitch A Family Affair in the second slot, possibly with some minor tweaks (I was thinking about adding more weight/drama to the relationship between Sarah and Dan by suggesting to them to think about why they care about their career and maybe define their job in a bit more detail). This won't take a whole slot, so I'm thinking about trying out some game poems that work with 4 people - any suggestions?

    I'll also bring Infinity Dungeon to play in the break - I heard it's a cute and silly storytelling game, but didn't have a chance to play it yet.

      Infinity Dungeon sounds entertaining

  • Tom P.

    I'll be bringing Love in the Time of Seið. I've never played it though so if anyone else has and would like to guide us through it that would be very much appreciated.

    Other commitments have manifest.

    April 16, 2014

  • Epistolary R.

    I'll be bringing Veronica Mars the RPG (or what it's called is - as they don't have the licence - Bubblegumshoe)
    http://www.google.co.uk/#q=bubblegumshoe
    This is part of the beta playtest so players will get a chance to feedback to the designers and maybe influence the final product.
