Game Designers Discussion and Playtesting

  • July 31, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Have a game your designing and would like feedback on or have one ready for playtesting? Join other local game designers and give feedback and help us improve our game designs by playtesting and giving design feedback.

Even if you just have the first ideas of a game floating around come by and bounce ideas around.

If you don't have a game idea but would enjoy playtesting a new game please come by and help test our games out.
We need people that can give constructive criticism and help improve our games.
Because the games are demos and prototypes and just basic ideas, in some cases, please keep in mind that it will not be a regular gaming session in most cases. We might just be playtesting or discussing certain aspects of a game or idea.

    It was a great first design meetup tonight! A dozen designers and playtesters showed up to test 4 prototypes from 4 different designers as well as discuss over a half dozen projects in the works! We even made a mechanics change on the fly and playtested it to much success!

    Everybody is looking forward to the next meeting for more designing fun!

    Wow, it looks like we are going to have a great turn out for our first meeting! I asked at one point, but now there are several more of you.

    How many of you have prototypes in one form or another to test out on Thursday?

    How many of you just have ideas at this point that you are hoping to bounce around?
