Game Design Workshop

Want to make games but not sure you have enough time? Lack the programming chops to turn your ideas into reality? Or perhaps you'd just like to practice designing games?

Join us for an afternoon of good, old fashioned game making! We'll be using pen, paper, and various other odds and ends to design games from scratch.


• 1-1:30pm Show up, get settled, split into groups

• 1:30-3pm Make something cool

• 3-4pm Show off what you've made

    This was my first meetup ever. I had a great time prototyping with my team and hearing what everyone came up with! Looking forward to the next one!

    This time I was able to help finish a more complete and simple game within the time constraints!

    That was great fun, but I guess I was wrong that anyone leaving a jacket behind would notice when they went outside.

    I don't suppose there's a telepresence option? Was all geared up to head out but had a Failure To Locate Smartphone, which sounds like a poor excuse to avoid trekking outside, because it is.

      Don't rush, stay safe, I'll be there and I imagine we'll start a bit later anyway to give people a chance to get here in this weather.

    Sorry to bail, but I got snowed in last night. I was hoping it would melt by now, but it's looking like I might be in the mountains for a few days. :(

      No worries, hope to see you next time!

    Looks like the weather's going to keep me away too.

    Howdy! Considering attending this. I don't have a laptop suited for making games, but I'd love to start designing games and writing. It would be great to meet and network with people here! Really, I'm looking for a good venue to start learning new skills and putting the ones I have to good use. Is anyone interested in taking a newbie under their wing?

      Hi Eric, you should definitely attend. This is a non-technical event, so no laptop needed. Just come with an open mind and ready to make something new!

    • Eric T.

      Okay, thanks! Sounds awesome. I'll be by to hang out and make some games.

    Please note that we're holding this session on *second* Sunday instead of the first so as not to conflict with the Super Bowl. (Whatever that is ;-)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
