The October Meetup will be on Sunday 12th October from 1pm to 8pm.
Please note that this meeting is on the 2nd Sunday this month to avoid clashing with Essen Spiel 2014.
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.
If you would like to bring along a new design, contact Rob Harris (Organiser) and we will add your game to the list.
Deadline for pre-registering games is 11:59pm on Friday 10th October. Be sure to include the name of the game, a brief description of the gameplay, the expected duration and the amount of players.
[name] [description] [duration] [amount of players]
If you bring more than one design, add a preference for which one you would like to show first. Please feel free to still bring extra prototypes on the day. They will be added to later playtesting rounds.
(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.)
You can follow the group's blog at www.playtest.co.uk
We also have a guild page on BGG: www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/1398
