We are a friendly group of board/card game designers and playtesters set up in London in 2010. We meet to play games and each other's design prototypes.

Everyone is welcome to join us and bring along their own designs or settle down to play and give their opinion. Ever designed a game and wanted to see how it plays? Enjoy playing games and being creative? Do you know what makes a game fun? Don't leave your game ideas sitting on the shelf gathering dust; show them off at the next Playtest meetup and get feedback direct from the players. We look forward to welcoming you at the next meetup!

We have regular playtesting meetups across the country in London, Cambridge, Newcastle, Brighton, Cardiff, Leeds, Enfield, Bath and Norwich.Please see our listings for details of dates and times. There is a monthly group newsletter.
