    Hi all - I'm hoping to come to this soon, once I have a playable prototype of the game I'm working on to show - I wanted to ask, hen making cards for use in your prototypes, do you guys just print and cut yourselves usually or get them done professionally? If so what printers do linen-style cards like those in Waterdeep?

    Gutted I can't make it. I'm wondering if we ordered some bits on would anyone be up for a designing session? We could choose from a selection of bits and design a game in a day :O

      Sounds like a great idea. Don't forget out 10% discount at­k Let me know if you need any help organising this. It could be part of a monthly Playtest meetup or a separate event, we could promote here.

      Like Rob said, lets bulk order some bits from and put together some shiny new games!

    I'd like to test a large tweak for Scattered Fleet (using hexes instead of squares for locations), but am happy to defer to people who didn't get anything to table last time :)

    Not sure that Movie Mogul is going to make it for tomorrow :( Instead I've going to be trying out a real-world game called Outrun that I'm planning to run at the Science Museum in January.

      Sounds good, looking forward to hearing more about this tomorrow!

    Ixnay on Caterwaul, unfortunately, been too busy to get it together. Next time!
    But I am still bringing Fishy Business, revised quite a bit from last time.

      Looking forward to giving Fishy Business a try. Katarina really liked it last time.

      December 11, 2012

      I've aimed to polish away a few more of the potential frustration factors that were still present in that version. We shall see…

  • Ben

    I'll be bringing a strategy game, working title Jam - actually a variant of the tube map game I brought last time, but with taxis driving around a fictional city instead.
