Game Designer's Guild

The Primos Game Designer's Guild is a place where anyone – students, patrons, staff, designers, families, and members of the community – anyone who has an interest in game design can explore and develop new.

 Our goals are [in no particular order]:

• Play-test new games.

• Rapid prototypes game ideas.Demonstrate/discuss different game mechanics.

• Develop "templates" for new games. Blank tiles, cards, etc.

• Design new games in small groups for development.

• Develop a procedure for rapid development. (basics, # of players, rules, outcomes, end conditions, entry heuristics)

• Discuss other game design elements (randomness, theme, player downtime) and melding mechanics and elements (elegance).

• Invite amateur and professional game designers/reviewers and experts to speak.

• PLAY MORE GAMES and learn about the process of creating them.

    Hi everyone. I just found out that on this date (Sat Nov 9) there is an UnPub mini event at Games Keep in West Chester.

    An UnPub Mini is a day-long event where local tabletop game designers gather and bring prototypes that need people for play-testing. The event is free to both designers and testers and is open to the public. Anyone interested can come play-test games and provide valuable feedback to the designers. More info can be found here: The main address of the site is

      We can switch the Open Gaming Event later in November and make it the Game Designer's Guild. I don't see an issue with that.

      OK! Bonnie, you are now co-organizer! If you would like to add the UnPub even to the calender and announce it, that would be awesome!
