Game Salute Tabletop Games Design Center is in the Firdale Village Center at 9633 Firdale Ave in Edmonds. There's no sign yet for us, but it's really easy to find. We're in the front building on the side that faces the main road and situated between the hair salon and the Colonial Pantry restaurant. If you're looking at the satellite image in the map linked here, we're in the spot that says "Phoenix Theater". http://goo.gl/maps/Jwsjr
I will provide light snacks and drinks. You are welcome to bring your own lunch or there is an Indian take out and a Pizza place in the same center if you'd like to get lunch and eat while you play.
We will usually warm up with a short existing game and then test shorter lighter games under development on these Wednesday night meetups. Gamers are encouraged to bring their own game designs that play in 30 to 45 minutes.
Here are a few games in development that we've played in previous events and we may well see them played at this meetup.
Forge is a game where you portray a skilled craftsman gathering materials to forge the weapons, jewelry, and talismans in your attempt to become the Craftman to the King...2 to 4 players...60 minutes...by Nick Sibicky.
This game is not a Clever Mojo Games title...yet...but giving it a play test is still a possibility. This is a programmed movement zeppelin race game...2 to 4 players...45 minutes...by Jeff Wilcox
The animals in this zoo spend their evenings attacking each other with wildly creative kung fu moves like "The Flying Monkey Face-Slap of Justice!". If they learn well and can defeat the Samuri Zookeeper they will win honor for their species. Designed by Brian Knudson (Kittens in a Blender), Zoo Fu is a fast paced card game for 2 to 6 players and lasts about 30 minutes.
This is an Elephant racing game designed by Bruno Faidutti. It's got cards, a modular track, and elephant meeples...3 to 6 players...45 minutes...ages 8+...by Bruno Faidutti, Sergio Halaban, and Andre Zatz.
This is an open-hand puck-control game where players maneuver a common game piece around the circle of open-hand cards in an attempt to score positive points or push negative points to their opponents...3-5 players...30 minutes...by John Moller.
Baby sea turtles hatch from their eggs and make a mad dash for the sea, trying to avoid ghost crabs looking for a quick lunch. Place your bets on which turtles will make it to safety or which will be eaten...then roll the dice and do what you can to win your bets. Designed by David Sanhueza (Goblins Drool Fairies Rule), GalapaGO! is a betting and racing dice game for 3 to 6 players and lasts about 45 minutes.
If you enjoy playing and discussing games and game design, this Meetup is for you!
