London Playtest weekday meetup

The 3rd weekday meetup for the London Playtest UK group will be on Monday 14th April from 6pm in the Jugged Hare, Victoria.

If you've designed a game, bring it along and give it a play or just enjoy playing other people's prototypes in a friendly and constructive atmosphere.

Please feel free to add details of your game in the comments section below. As the weekday meetup is less structured than the weekend meetup, it might be more useful for very early prototypes and concepts as well as full game tests. As usual the formula will be playtested and tweaks made along the way.

(Please note that as a condition of our use of the Jugged Hare, only food and drink bought at the pub can be consumed on the premises.)

List of Prototypes to be playtested (tbc):

Game of Stones (Chris Keating)

First, the City! (David Dawkins)

Evil Mastermind (David Dawkins)

Chancery Lane (Kevan Davis)

Tiny Heist (Kevan Davis)

Abstract game prototype (Gokce Balkan)

Towers (Andy Yiangou)

Game without a Name (Dave Turner)

Terrain (Dave Cousins)

Ewe.F.O. (Dave Cousins)

The Game with No Name (Dave Cousins)

You can follow the group's blog at

We also have a guild page on BGG:

    Great extra meetup, being downstairs actually meant less noise from the rest of the pub. Smaller crowd bit good hands and good feedback.

    Woot! Kids are at the in-laws so I can make one of these!
    So in a celebratory manner I'll bring:
    Terrain, 2-5 player tile laying, 30 mins. (some variations to try)
    Ewe.F.O. 2-4 player worker placement alien sheep abduction game, 30-45 mins
    The Game with No Name, abstract dice game (meaning I'm still not sure what the game is..) - if I've got some new ideas to try by then... ;-)
    Testing any/all of the above or not as space and time permits!
    Laters innit,

    I'll be along after about 18:30, I think. Hopefully I'll bring my 'Game Without a Name', a hopefully fun game that's designed to teach the basics of wargaming to novices. Each game lasts 30-45mins and requires only two players.

    I'll be coming along with a refined version of Chancery Lane (2+ players, 45 minutes) and an early prototype of Tiny Heist (2 players, 20 minutes).

    Howdy folkes. Looking to bring along a game I just invented (well, not the game I just invented, because that's not ready, yet) called First, the City! a card and tile game about being an Evil Mastermind. 2-6 players, playing time can be adjusted to whatever suits.

      Hi David, Welcome to the group. See you on Monday. Cheers, Rob

    Hello hello! I will bring along Game of Stones, 3-6 players, 75-90 minutes, dwarfy worker-placement.

    If time is limited it would be good to do a blind test of the start of the game, i.e. can people make sense of the cards and component and get going - that would only take 30/45 mins. :)

      Looking forward to giving this one a try. Cheers, Rob
